Chef Graham Dodds and two investors from California plan to open a restaurant in the Oak Cliff mayor’s house on Zang.
Dodds, the original chef of Bolsa who most recently worked at The Statler Downtown, told Escape Hatch Dallas that the new restaurant will open this summer. Dodds says he expects to call it The Mayor’s House.
The website reports that his partners are A.J. Gilbert and Martha Madison, a husband and wife from the San Francisco Bay Area who now live in Frisco. They own restaurants in California and New York.
Jim Lake Cos., which put the property up for lease last year, has owned it since 2011.
