TBD has been described by its owners as a "high-energy lounge" on a bustling late-night corner of Uptown Dallas. But it's also a restaurant with modern American food. Co-owner Alex Marko hopes club-goers will come early for dinner.

Most of TBD's menu items will be shared plates and "tapas-style boards," says executive chef Jesse Ragon, who moved to Dallas from Texarkana to run TBD's kitchen. The club has been hosting parties already; its grand opening is Tuesday, Aug. 11. Dinner starts Wednesday, Aug. 12.

The restaurant/bar was designed to have a "Miami feel," says its co-owner.

TBD wants to be a "restaurant first, entertainment destination second," say its co-owners. To some, it's definitely a club.

Customers will be served by models, each from the Campbell Agency. They'll transition from restaurant to bar -- and by 10 p.m., the kitchen closes and TBD hits full party mode.

The dinner menu includes three "boards" such as the $18 fruit and cheese tray. Four varieties of flatbreads include a $22 option with lobster, red onion, artichoke hearts, Peppadew peppers and goat cheese. Shared plates like the $14 tuna tacos and the $8 elotes are some of chef Ragon's favorites. His menu also has a selection entrees such as the $40 Chilean sea bass or a $32 lamb dish.

TBD's dinner menu runs 5 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. The club is closed Sundays and Mondays for now. Eventually, co-owner Alex Marko hopes to open for Sunday brunch from noon to 5 p.m. TBD is located at 2922 N. Hall St., Dallas.
