A bistro named after an exotic flower plans to open on Ross Avenue later this year, CultureMap reported.

Dahlia Bar & Bistro will open at 3300 Ross Ave. in the space formerly occupied by Ross & Hall. The building is under construction and will debut in fall 2020.

Chris and Mark Beardon, who own Felix Culpa on Henderson Avenue, teamed up again to bring the eatery to East Dallas. TJ Land, of Toluca Organic, helped create the menu, according to CultureMap.

The menu is inspired by southern European cuisine with Italian, French, Spanish and Mediterranean influences. Dishes will include steamed mussels, parmesan-crusted lamb chops and steak frites.

Spirits and wine will be available at a 35-seat bar.

A bohemian theme permeates the space, with dahlia flowers and other floral accents scattered throughout the dining room, the publication reported.

An outdoor patio takes up nearly half the restaurant’s 3,800 square feet of space.
