The grand opening of Sissy’s Southern Kitchen, Garden & Bar is Monday, Feb. 27. The restaurant, from Next Food Network Star contestant Lisa Garza, is reported to be specializing in fried chicken and short ribs.

Sissy’s is taking the space formerly occupied by Hector’s on Henderson. Hector’s closed in August. Speaking of which, Hector Garcia of Hector’s followed us on Twitter the other day, and besides the fact he’s always Foursquare checking in at enviable places in Dallas, we noticed his bio says “I am a working actor…” Did you know? I didn’t know. IMDB tells us it’s true.
