grilled-cheese-sandwichA new restaurant is coming to the Bishop Arts District space vacated by the Book Doctor in January.

Dallas Grilled Cheese Co. could open at 310 W. Seventh by the end of the year with a menu focused on cheese and bread.

“Everybody’s got a memory of grilled cheese,” says Dallas Grilled Cheese Co. partner Mack Simpson.

Expected offerings include American cheese on Texas toast, “with a PBR,” says Simpson, or brie with pears and walnuts on French baguette, for example.

“Grilled cheese is such a blank slate,” Simpson says.

Simpson and partners Diana Ezzell and Glen Shank are still working out the menu. The space is under construction and awaiting permits. They’ve hired Stash Dallas, whose work can be seen in restaurants including Oddfellows and Chicken Scratch, to finish out the interior.
