Everything you need to know about Macellaio, new Dallas charcuterie restaurant from owners of Lucia


Husband-and-wife restaurateurs David and Jennifer Uygur have quietly opened Macellaio, their second restaurant in the Bishop Arts District. The restaurant opened on Tuesday, June 5. The restaurant is tiny – just 55 seats – and is located a pitching wedge away from the Uygur’s first restaurant, Italy-inspired Lucia. If you’re looking for details, location, phone and reservation info for Macellaio, keep reading.

Macellaio (Italian for butcher) specializes in housemade charcuterie and cured meats like salumi, coppa, lonza, lardo, and pancetta, plus chorizo, pickled veggies and fresh-baked breads.  Large and small plates include a lamb sirloin and a chicken liver tart.

David Uygur oversees the kitchens of both Macellaio and Lucia, while Jennifer Uygur runs the beverage program at both. Anthony Bombaci is Macellaio’s chef de cuisine. Brenna Hudson is the GM.

“I highly recommend Macellaio,” wrote customer Vanessa Ann last weekend on Facebook of her preview meal at Macellaio. “Our meal started with a cocktail and a little variety of handmade charcuterie. The chicken liver tart was outstanding. The menu is so interesting from the small plates and the large plate — I’m dreaming of the lamb sirloin still. Service was over the top — water glasses were never empty and there was a great wine list. Jennifer also helped guide us their with her wine knowledge. Can’t wait to get back down here!”

The menus are said to evolve with the seasons and offer a family style meal option, refreshing spritzer cocktails and Mediterranean wines. A full cocktail bar and a patio for walk-ins is also available.

Macellaio is located at 287 N. Bishop Avenue, Dallas, in the Bishop Arts District. The restaurant is open Sun-Thu 5:00-10 pm, Fri-Sat 5:00-11 pm. Phone 972-685-9150. Reservations through this link.
