Hot Joy, fun new interloper from San Antonio, opens its two-year Dallas run today–Monday, July 17. Here’s a peek.
Hot Joy has made its Dallas debut, bringing its brand of high energy, fun, Chinese-inspired dining to 3130 Lemmon Avenue in Uptown.
The San Antonio-based restaurant has partnered with the team behind hits such as Velvet Taco, Whiskey Cake, The Ranch at Las Colinas, Mexican Sugar and Sixty Vines to bring Hot Joy to Dallas. The restaurant occupies a former Texas Land & Cattle space, which received a light gloss of shiny red lipstick and dark laquer for its two-year run.
Why two years? The land owner plans to scrape the building for a new mid-rise two years from now.
There's nothing traditional about Hot Joy's style of cooking. Nothing fancy or authentic because Hot Joy is out for a good time. Just like you are.
So put away any notions of Szichuan or Hunan cuisine, any pretension of porcelain dishes and Peking duck. Instead, go for some fun, the really good cocktails, and Hot Joy's crispy, crunchy crab-fat caramel chicken wings.
For the first week, Hot Joy will be open for dinner only.
