Restaurateur Sam Governale is officially ready to debut his bright new eatery Emmaline in the space formerly known as Teala’s.

The European-influenced American restaurant will open its doors at 3210 West Dallas today, announces a press release. Originally, Governale was set to open Emmaline in September, but it would appear that Hurricane Harvey quickly put a kink in those plans. Now, executive chef Dimitri Voutsianas is ready to begin serving his menu of pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, and more.

As far as the menu is concerned, diners can look forward to light starters like a carpaccio of sea scallops garnished with winter citrus and pink peppercorn or roasted beets with ricotta and hazelnuts. Mains include simple wood-grilled proteins, a pancetta-goat cheese frittata, and cioppino blanco with prawns, mussels, and clams in a broth spiked with tomato and fennel. Pastry chef Alyssa Dole, formerly of Cherry Pie Hospitaltiy and Coltivare, will create enticing desserts like an espresso-dark chocolate torta and buttermilk panna cotta with buttermilk and blood orange.

Emmaline will begin lunch service at 11 a.m. on Monday, December 11. The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and the doors will stay open until midnight on Friday and Saturday. Before making a reservation, scope out the full dinner menu below.
