Stirr opens in Addison with crazy good food, creative cocktails and chef Rodman Shields leading the kitchen

Stirr, the upscale modern American restaurant and cocktail lounge with Deep Ellum roots, has opened in Addison, and the two-story space is a gorgeous stunner. 

Chef Rodman Shields runs the culinary operation here, so expect modern American dishes that borrow heavily from a global flavor palate. Shields, who’s created menus for restaurants all over town, joined the Milkshake Concepts team late last year as corporate chef for parent company Milkshake Concepts, and he’s wasted no time reworking the menus at their Stirr, Vidorra, Citizen and Serious Pizza restaurants.

 (His spicy, tangy, smoked-then-crisp-fried chicken wings at Stirr will drive you crazy.)

The Addison Stirr joins a sibling in Fort Worth and  the original Strirr in Dallas.
