Malai Kitchen made a name for itself with its first location in Dallas. Husband and wife team Braden and Yasmin Wages met at Cornell University and developed a passion for Vietnamese and Thai cuisine through their travels. Malai also brews a handful of beers in-house, making it a rare brewpub in Southlake. Yasmin Wages said, “After discovering bia hoi on a trip to Hanoi, Vietnam, we were compelled to share the refreshing brew with our guests. When we couldn’t find a domestic brewery to brew it for us, we decided to give it a try ourselves and acquired a brewpub license. We offer three styles: bia hoi [a light Vietnamese rice lager], Thai-P-A [a medium-bodied IPA infused with refreshing Thai herbs], and a Thai one on seasonal rotator.”
Modern Market caters to nearly any dietary need using simple, whole ingredients that come from farms, not factories.

“Plan B designed the 4,200-square-foot restaurant with old school charm and modern sensibility at the forefront,” said Amity Thomas in public relations and Shannon McCarthy in marketing and public relations for 33 Restaurant Group. “Located near one of two Park Village fountains, the space includes a 1,500-square-foot, year-round patio with outdoor fire place and an indoor stage which will feature live, local music every Saturday night.”
The Juice Bar just opened its fourth location in Park Village and features freshly pressed juices and smoothies. Founder Tom Hennings has a passion for health and wellness, and his co-founder, Heidi Lane, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of New York, knew how to make that passion actually taste good. Their Juice Bar uses a centrifugal juicer as well as a cold press machine to create their menu of pressed juices and cleanses. Fans also love their fresh smoothies.
