I find it strange when someone tells me that they love going to the grocery store. To me, it’s more of a hassle and something I put off for as long as I can, at least I until I run out of coffee and dark chocolate. But, Dallas has really been stepping up its game lately with more boutique-ish market style grocery stores, as well as some brand new big name places.

The bustling Union Dallas building, located on the border of Uptown and Harwood district, has a little more bustle with the arrival of a new sushi restaurant. Called Kotta Sushi Lounge, it’s on the second level, next door to Taco Lingo, and according to a release, it’s open for business, offering an expansive menu of sushi rolls, Japanese entrees, and a full bar.
Kotta is the second location of a same-named restaurant that opened in Frisco in 2007. The Dallas spinoff was originally going to be called Minami, but they decided at the last minute to build on the familiarity they already had with Kotta.

Even with all the shrimp goodness, this dish really is all about the broth … and soaking it up with toasted garlic bread. I bet you can imagine the aroma. I know I can.
This recipe comes from the dinner menu at The Henry in a new uptown high rise called The Union. It is one of several concepts in the pantheon of Fox Restaurants, a growing chain that started in Arizona. Flower Child, with several locations in the Dallas area, is another Fox Restaurants brand.

How often do you spot North Dallas and Park Cities Ladies Who Lunch venturing anywhere near downtown, except to a luxury department store eatery? There have been sightings at The Henry, a self-styled “neighborhood bistro.” The neighborhood is not precisely downtown or uptown but near Victory Park on the ground floor of a new mixed-use high rise, The Union.
Of course, a lot of the crowd during our hosted lunch visit was from nearby office buildings. And there was a birthday party of hair stylists and influencers celebrating at a table near ours. But much of the buzz about this place, full at lunch after only a month in operation, focuses on the rooftop bar.
Considering the population density of Uptown and downtown Dallas, it’s surprising that it’s taken so long to get a full-sized grocery store in the area. Sure, there’s a small Whole Foods on McKinney and a Kroger Fresh Fare on Cedar Springs, but otherwise, grocery offerings are limited — and, in the case of Whole Foods and Royal Blue Grocery downtown, are more expensive than the everyday shopper can afford.

Uptown grocery shoppers now have a new choice for getting their weekend grocery shopping done.
Tom Thumb opened a 56,000-square-foot store Friday in The Union, a $350 million high-rise office, residential, restaurant complex built by RED Development and designed by Dallas-based HKS.
To cater to the tower residents paying monthly rents starting at $2,100 — and office workers on their way home — the street-level supermarket and pharmacy is also set up for both deliveries and drive-through pickups.
