Report: Dallas restaurateur Monica Greene coming to FW

Posted 4:03pm on Thursday, May. 29, 2014

Dallas restauraetur Monica Greene -- perhaps still best known for now-closed Deep Ellum spot Monica’s Aca y Alla -- plans to open a restaurant on Fort Worth’s Blue Bonnet Circle, DFW.com contributor Teresa Gubbins reports on Dallas Culture Map.

The restaurant, Pegaso Diner, will go into the long-dormant Tiff & Andy’s spot on the south side of the circle, which interrupts University Drive south of Berry Street.

According to Gubbins, Greene ran a restaurant called Pegaso Diner in downtown Dallas in 2003. The fast-casual restaurant, which was open for (in Gubbins’ words) “barely a year,” had a menu of burritos, Mexican-style tacos, ropa vieja salad, fruit paletas, and Mexican sandwiches such as the torta de tinga with chicken and cheese.

Greene’s most recent ventures, BEE (Best Enchiladas Ever) in Dallas’ Bishop Arts District and Nueva Cocina in Oak Lawn, closed in late 2012. The Star-Telegram reported in 2011 that Greene had signed a lease for a restaurant on Arlington’s Abram Street, but it didn’t come to fruition.
