One of Dallas' top patio hangouts is opening soon in Alamo City. The Rustic, a popular restaurant, bar, and music venue, will debut at The Rim in September.
A VIP grand opening celebration is scheduled for September 28, the team confirms with CultureMap. You can follow The Rustic on social media for a chance to get tickets.
The Rustic comes from FreeRange Concepts, a Dallas-based restaurant group founded by Kyle Noonan and Josh Sepkowitz. Their other projects include The General Public, a modern gastropub, and Bowl & Barrel, a bowling alley and restaurant combo, both of which have locations at The Rim.
They partnered with Texas singer-songwriter Pat Green on The Rustic. The outdoor concert area, dubbed Pat's Backyard, will host live music every night of the week.
The menu features "down-home food with a twist." Expect salads, burgers, tacos, sandwiches, and meaty entrees. Notable dishes include cactus fritters, beer can game hen, brisket quesadillas, and wood-grilled pork chop.
Weekend brunch, a family-style Sunday supper, and picnic baskets are other features of the Dallas location that are also expected in San Antonio. Drinks include Texas craft beers on tap, wine, spirits, and cocktails, all with an emphasis on local offerings.
