A new restaurant by chef Ross Demers is now open in our neighborhood.

Cry Wolf hosted its first customers Nov. 23 at 4422 Gaston Ave. The restaurant is located in a former Subway spot.

Demers, who used to live off Junius Street, has a history with the dining scene in our city. He helped open the now-closed Local Traveler near the Gaston-Garland-Grand intersection and On The Lamb, which was located in Deep Ellum.

“Our mission is to provide East Dallas and all Dallas residents with a proper eating and drinking establishment,” the restaurant says on its website.

It describes itself as “a cordial, intimate space for focusing on seasonal fare and refined cocktails.”

The menu isn’t on the website yet, but some initial offerings include parsley butter prawns, tuna sashimi, oysters mignonette, gnocchi with beef cheeks, salmon with fingerling potatoes, linguine with black trumpet mushrooms and shallots and more, according to CultureMap.

Cry Wolf is open 5-11 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday. Reservations may be made by contacting
