Food news: Times Ten Cellars gets a kitchen, new Raising Cane’s, GAP Co. set to open on Peavy, The Lot gives back all month

Times Ten Cellars is just completing an upgrade to add a kitchen to its mix. The wine room has long offered cheese boards, salads, dips and other bites that can be prepared without a full kitchen, in addition to hosting rotating food trucks. The upgraded kitchen will allow for an expanded menu, while also opening the door for specialty wine dinners. The first such dinner is set for Tuesday, Feb. 21, at 6:30 p.m. when chef Joey Crowell prepares a five-course meal, each expertly paired with an accompanying wine. It is limited to 40 people, and tickets are $85 by contacting Don’t worry, for those who love the Wednesday pizza nights with Urban Crust, or Sunday afternoon jazz, both those traditions will continue — now with more food options.

Knox-Henderson is getting a new fast-food offering where Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers is busy building a location on Ross at Greenville, near the Waffle House and Burger King. A spokeswoman for the company says the opening date has not been set and won’t be announced until six-weeks before the business is ready to begin service.

The Lot is marking its fourth anniversary by giving back to neighborhood schools and nonprofits all month long. From Friends of the Santa Fe Trail to the East Lake Pet Orphanage, 15 percent of sales on any given weekday will be donated to an East Dallas organization. See the full schedule below.

Greenville Avenue Pizza Company, a.k.a. GAP Co. Pizza, is almost ready to open its second location in our neighborhood following major success at its flagship and namesake restaurant, which was named one of the fastest-growing inner-city businesses by Forbes). It will join the increasingly hip corner of Garland and Peavy this April, in a small location that used to house a tattoo parlor. The second outlet will mostly be geared toward delivery and take-out services, but there will be a few limited seats for those who want to dine in.
