DISH Cedar Springs Closing & Relocating


New Casual Restaurant ‘Cedar Grove’ To Open in its Place – May 2016

DALLAS (February 26, 2016)…..Tim McEneny, of NL Group (Front Room Tavern, DISH Preston Hollow and Dakotas), is relocating DISH Cedar Springs and opening in its place, Cedar Grove – a casual restaurant with a uniquely nature-inspired design and creative American cuisine with an opening date of May 2016. Executive Chef Pete Harrison (currently Executive Chef at DISH Cedar Springs) will be running the kitchen.

McEneny, Chef Harrison and the design team lead by renowned architect Jonathan Bailey with Coeval Studios have been working collaboratively for months on the menu, experience, and design. Elements including grass-like material and over 50 handcrafted “trees” made of Maple wood are just two examples that intend to bring the outdoor in. McEneny says, “The name is a reflection of the location and also meant as a vibrant gathering place for our guests. This has been an exciting project to work on and we are looking forward to unveiling it later this spring.” He continues, “DISH Cedar Springs has been open since 2009 and it’s proven to be a thriving and viable brand in another neighborhood, hence our desire to expand and consider new locations.  We’re confident Cedar Grove will complement the lively and casual vibe of Ilume® and answer the call for what we feel people are looking for in a bar and restaurant experience here.”

With a total of 6,000 square feet, the restaurant will house 160+ seats including a 360-degree bar area, with a climate controlled patio environment and a 12’ ribbon fireplace to be enjoyed year round. Cedar Grove will be open from 3pm – midnight MondayFriday, and 10:30am – midnight on Saturday/Sunday.  Lunch, dinner and weekend brunch will be available as well as a daily happy hour.

DISH Cedar Springs will officially close its doors on Monday, February 29th with a tentative re-opening date of spring 2017 in a different location.
