Highland Park Village is pleased to announce the opening of Five Creeks Tavern on September 1st, 2015. Five Creeks Tavern will provide a unique and casual dining experience featuring handcrafted Neapolitan pizzas, pasta made “in-house,” along with an extensive selection of wines from the cask, beers on tap, frozen Bellini’s and quality cocktails.
A home-grown dining concept from Park Cities natives and creators of Katy Trail Ice House, Katy Trail Ice House Outpost, Bandito’s Tex-Mex and KT Burger, Five Creeks Tavern is a new American restaurant and bar named for the five original creeks that make-up the present day Turtle Creek. Buddy Cramer and Ben Ralston continue to expand their portfolio of Dallas area staples by creating yet another original neighborhood-dining destination. The casual and inviting space includes two separate outdoor patios overlooking Highland Park Village, perfect for guests to watch games or sip cocktails, two tap bars, a lounge area and comfortable family dining for lunch and dinner open seven days a week.
“Whether you are watching a game with friends, or out for a spontaneous dinner with the family, Five Creeks Tavern provides a memorable dining experience in the beautiful and convenient setting of Highland Park Village,” said managing owner, Buddy Cramer.
Five Creeks Tavern will specialize in authentic Neapolitan pizzas cooked to a crisp perfection in a Northern Italian 900 degree wood-fire oven, pastas made in-house daily, artisan paninis and daily specials prepared using fresh, seasonal ingredients. In addition, cheeses will be handmade on-site and fresh salads, custom appetizers and a selection of gelato for dessert will be offered.
The restaurant will also feature an extensive variety of drink options with 16 taps of wine served from the cask, a wide selection of craft beers and specialty cocktails, including Bellini’s, made according to Harry’s Bar recipe in Venice. Weekly happy hour specials will include wine, beer and savory appetizers.
“A neighborhood family gathering place like Five Creeks Tavern is extremely important to us. It will be the perfect destination for multiple generations to enjoy and experience for years to come,” said managing director of Highland Park Village, Ray W. Washburne.
Five Creeks Tavern will reside at 32 Highland Park Village, located next door to the Village Theatre.
