Matt McCallister to open Filament, a southern inspired restaurant, in Deep Ellum
The images above are of the space that’s about to become Filament, Matt McCallister’s new Deep Ellum restaurant. The chef/owner of FT33, broke the news this morning that he’ll open Filament, his second restaurant venture, in this former machinist shop in Deep Ellum this Spring.
In a release, McCallister says Filament “will honor simply prepared ingredients of the South”
“The menu at Filament will be full of items that I eat on my own time. A couple of months ago I took a road trip with a couple members of my team and really thought about the food that is representative of our region,” says McCallister. “Filament’s menu will be approachable, but not without the unexpected. The menu I’m working on looks straightforward on paper, like Spicy Pork Sausage with fire roasted peppers, pickled onions, and yogurt. There will be surprises, though.”
McCallister shared the images above, which capture the space that he’ll soon transform into Filament. Once the interior design is completed, expect to find a large, horseshoe-shaped bar with 24 seats. The menu will be tightly focused, including “about 100 bottles of wine, a rotating lineup of craft beers on tap, and an inventive selection of seasonal cocktails…with an emphasis on use of preserved fruits.”
The release describes the space as an early 1900s machinist shop, noting that Filament will preserve parts of the original interior, including exposed brick walls and wooden beam ceilings. “Filament’s industrial style fits with the vibe in Deep Ellum, a neighborhood known as a destination for local art.”
Filament will be located at 2626 Main Street, Dallas.
