Dodie’s first to open in restored building ravaged by fire

By Bruce Felps

Slightly more than a year after fire all but claimed the nostalgic-if-not-historic building along the west side of Lower Greenville Avenue’s 2800 block, the first of three restaurants — Dodie’s — gets ready to open for business next week.

Nancy Visser of the Dallas Morning News, today reported the Cajun eatery plans a soft opening for friends and family this week and opens its doors to the public next week.

The original smaller restaurant at Greenville and Richmond Avenue will remain open, at least for the time being, just as it is, which is good news.

Terelli’s, the only outlet to rebound in that location after the fire, plans an August opening, and Rohst, which specializes in Korean barbecue, should be open during July.

By the way, Terelli’s offers commemorative bricks for sale to its supporters and well-wishers. The bricks will be part of the Friends of Terelli’s Wall, and get the buyers special seating privileges and discounts.
