The Trinity Groves space that served as home base for Chino Chinatown for six years will soon see a new restaurant serving handmade dumplings and hand-pulled noodles. The newcomer has a name that is arguably offensive: Sum Dang Good Chinese. It will be led by Chef Weigou Cai, formerly of Wu Wei Din and Royal China. Dishes will include sweet and sour baby back ribs, beer can chinese chicken and a gigantic crab soup dumpling called a “Humpty Dumpling.” A renovation is in the works to change up the space’s color scheme and open the dining room to the kitchen so diners can watch chefs at work at noodle and dumpling stations.

It didn’t take long for the Trinity Groves spot where Chino Chinatown was to get something else. This time, it’s apparently broadly Chinese food, with a name I’m trying to delay actually typing: Sum Dang Good Chinese.

A new restaurant is coming to Trinity Groves, the West Dallas incubator concept, to replace Chino Chinatown, which closed in February. The new place is called Sum Dang Good Chinese

Despite a slurry of restaurant closures in North Texas, some which have happened in West Dallas’ Trinity Groves, the restaurant park has plans to open new restaurants. At least three are opening soon: A restaurant called Sum Dang Good Chinese will replace Chino Chinatown. A pizza joint called Holy Crust is expected to open where LUCK was. And a cheffy event space called Flourish will open in place of Fat Chicken.

Upon first opening in 2014, Trinity Groves has been a culinary incubator for some of Dallas’s most exciting concepts. The original idea was for restaurants to take up temporary residence before moving on to other things. Chino Chinatown, which opened six years ago, has proven to be one of the incubator’s most successful concepts, but now it’s time to move on.

Put away the toaster, lime, and the red pepper flakes. You’re going out for extra-special avocado toast––and so much more. Now Dallas-area avocado lovers can experience their favorite fruit like never before at AvoEatery, the world’s first polished-casual restaurant dedicated solely to capitalizing on the fresh, versatile, creamy, and delicious aspects of avocados.

At AvoEatery, Faith Railey’s house cocktails all incorporate avocado, just like the food menu. Avocado: You may have heard of it. The current lord of the fruit kingdom is officially everywhere, and the most visible (and notorious) sign of its cultural sway is the dish known as avocado toast. Naturally, it was just a matter of time before someone created an avocado toast shot. It’s only fitting that that someone is Faith Railey, beverage manager at recently opened AvoEatery in Trinity Groves, where the ubiquitous superfruit graces every dish in some way.

When I heard about AvoEatery, a unique new restaurant that was creating lots of buzz for North Texas foodies, I couldn’t wait to try it. I’m a big believer in avocados, and I feel they make anything tastier.

Foodies Should be Flying High in 2025. Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport’s new Terminal F won’t welcome passengers until 2025, but its lively dining options are already beginning to take shape. The $3 billion addition to one of the nation’s busiest airports, will be a modern upgrade when it arrives.
