Seafood restaurant coming to Dallas’ buzzy Knox Street, from owner of Beverley’s

2 min read

A restaurant specializing in raw oysters and other seafood is expected to open on Knox Street in Dallas, in the new Weir’s building.

Owner Greg Katz calls Greenpoint Seafood and Oyster Bar a “modern, classic” place expected to open in fall or winter 2022.

Knox is Dallas’ hottest restaurant block right now. Greenpoint will be in the same ground-floor, new-construction space as Pizzana, the celebrity-backed pizza place from California; and an unnamed restaurant from the owners of The Charles and Sister.

Nearby, there’s also Toulouse and Taverna; Up on Knox, Georgie and Le Bilboquet; La Duni; and Village Baking Co., each operated by Dallas-area restaurateurs. An upscale restaurant named Montes Modern Charhouse is expected to open in the former Abacus space on McKinney Avenue. And there’s the tony RH Rooftop, a restaurant not operated by locals but beloved by plenty of Dallas folks.

We're calling it: RH Rooftop Restaurant is the new hot spot for lunch or brunch in Dallas.

We can expect even more restaurant announcements from Dallas developers Stephen Summers and Ray Washburne.

Greenpoint comes from South Africa native Katz. It’s named for Green Point, the beachy suburb in Cape Town and site of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.Katz lived in Israel and New York City before relocating more permanently to Dallas and opening well-liked neighborhood bistro Beverley’s, named after his mom.

He also owns a coming-soon lounge named Clifton Club, named after another neighborhood in Cape Town. We called Clifton Club one of Dallas’ most exciting new spots of 2022. It’s expected to open in a few months.

Katz said expanding to Knox “just felt right.” He’ll be in good company.

The menu for Greenpoint is far from finished. Katz hopes it’s “small, charming and comfortable,” a place that will attract lunch and dinner crowds seven days a week. The idea is to be a midday meetup spot for office workers moving into the new buildings on Knox Street, then serve dinner and drinks to shoppers and residents in Uptown, Park Cities and the M Streets.

The restaurant will have an indoor-outdoor feel, with a patio. And it’ll have a big bar.

“I’m as passionate about cocktails as I am about the food. That’s what I’ve loved about doing Bev’s and now Clifton Club,” Katz says.

If the Knox/Fitzhugh area is hot, Katz is putting all his efforts on its equator: His three spots are all right there, about a half-mile away from one another.

Greenpoint Seafood and Oyster Bar will be near the former Highland Park Soda Fountain, on Knox Street in Dallas. It’s expected to open in late 2022.
