The new restaurant taking the old Vitto’s space in the Bishop Arts District will be called Oddfellows. It’s expected to open for breakfast and lunch sometime this fall, and dinner service will be added later. We reported Wednesday that the pastry chef from Local in Deep Ellum, Aliza Shier, will be the head chef. A media release from Oddfellows Thursday said the partners are Gary Buckner, Amy Cowan, Scott Griggs, Amanda Pounds, Jason Roberts, Chad Sepulveda, Aliza Shier, Matt Spillers and Shane Spillers.
