Restaurant roundup: Mesa, Driftwood, Emporium Pies

Mesa is celebrating its one-year anniversary next month, and the owners are building a dining patio in back. They hope to have it open by the May 11 anniversary party. Owner Raul Reyes says he is scouting locations for a second Mesa, which he hopes to open by the end of the year.

Driftwood, a new restaurant in the old ConFusion space, opened this week. Chef Omar Flores, formerly of Abbacus, serves high-end seafood. (Read Scott Chase’s review.)

Emporium Pies, from bakers Meagan Wilkes and Mary Gauntt, has leased 314 N. Bishop. Emporium Pies had a pop-up shop there during Oak Cliff Mardi Gras, and now they’re going to be a Bishop Arts fixture.
