BBQ expert Aaron Franklin and Uchi chef Tyson Cole will open a restaurant in Dallas


This place will soon become Loro.

Austin’s Aaron Franklin and chef Tyson Cole will open a branch of their Austin restaurant Loro, billed as an Asian smokehouse and bar, in East Dallas next summer.

To be located in a small strip mall at 1812 N Haskell (at the corner of Haskell and Munger), the new restaurant has a lot of construction and permitting to complete, so “summer” could be a tough goal.

Like the original Loro, which opened in Austin in 2018, Loro Dallas will feature a variety of dishes created by James Beard Foundation Award-winners Cole and Franklin that balance Southeast Asian flavors with the rich texture of traditional Texas BBQ.

“Collaborating with Aaron on Loro has been such a great experience, and the reception to the food, drinks and atmosphere has been stellar,” Cole said.  “We hope Dallas will dig the complex flavor combination of Southeast Asian food with the richness of smoked meat just as much as they do in Austin.”

Loro Dallas will recall the historic dance halls of the Texas Hill Country, where people regularly gather to eat, dance and connect, with expansive dining space inside, as well as outdoor deck and patio seating.
