A Chicago-based restaurant has designs on Texas, with locations planned in North Austin and two of Dallas-Fort Worth's hottest areas.

Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen will open in Domain Northside in spring 2017. There are also locations coming to Uptown Dallas at McKinney & Olive and Fort Worth’s Shops at Clearfork in spring and fall 2017, respectively.

The “fresh casual” restaurant offers burgers and sandwiches, salads, pizza, and what they call Wok Out bowls. Those are kale, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, and chopped cashews with salmon, chicken, shrimp, tuna, tofu, or steak, as well as your choice sticky brown rice, lo mein, or quinoa with sesame teriyaki or spicy Thai sauce.

Among the “very special” entrées are center-cut filet mignon, Tennessee hot chicken, and Cajun crusted trout. Doc B’s sources ingredients from farmers and small purveyors, and meats are vegetarian-fed and hormone- and antibiotic-free.

The restaurant also serves craft beer, wine, and spirits.

The Domain Northside location will feature an open-air concept with a sophisticated, minimalist design. A communal fire pit and patio with a retractable canopy promise year-round dining al fresco. Gotta have a patio.

Founded in 2013, Doc B’s now has locations Chicago and Tampa, Florida, with locations underway in Fort Lauderdale and Coral Gables, in addition to those in Texas.
