Drallas and Fort Worth are still among the fastest growing cities in America. To feed that doubling audience, a number of exciting (non-fast food) restaurant chains are planning to expand their reach around DFW soon. These are just some of the sub-restaurants that will soon populate the North Texas dining scene.

The fast-growing Toasted Yolk has opened its first location in Tarrant County at 2820 Southlake Boulevard (about 20 miles outside of Fort Worth). The next stop is in Dallas County where Toasted Yolk plans six more new restaurants, stretching from North Dallas to Prosper (including Toasted Yolks in Carrollton, Plano, Frisco, and McKinney).
Toasted Yolk’s brunch menu has everything from salad bowls to pancake dishes. There are omelettes, crepes and eggs Benedict – which are called Arnold’s eggs in toasted yolk. However, churro-style buns may be everyone’s favourite.
