Kimpton Pittman Hotel

Dallas history is on display at the Kimpton Pittman Hotel, Deep Ellum’s new accommodations housed in the former Knights of Pythias Temple. Designed by prominent Black architect William S. Pittman in 1916, the Beaux Arts building was the first structure in Dallas built by and for African Americans. The historic space now comprises 165 guest rooms, a 24-hour fitness center and a resort-style pool. The on-site restaurant, Elm & Good, features a farm-to-table menu helmed by local culinary whiz Graham Dodds. 2551 Elm St.,


Bishop Arts’ latest food buzz? Encina, a New American concept taking over the iconic space once occupied by Bolsa. With former Bolsa chef Matt Balke crafting the menu, Encina will blend the flavors of Texas and California—and hopefully honor its predecessor by serving as a true neighborhood spot. In a highly anticipated arrival, the new resto officially opened its doors in early October. 614 W. Davis St.,
