6 New restaurants for a new year

Plano has long been lauded for its many restaurants. With burgers, barbecue, pho and Tex-Mex, there is something for everyone just around the corner. Many new restaurants are coming to Plano in 2023. Here are a few to look forward to.

  1. Uchiko
    Legacy West
    The sister restaurant to chef Tyson Cole’s Uchi, Uchiko will open in Legacy West sometime in the summer or fall. Owners say the restaurant, the third location for the chain, is designed to have a “Japanese farmhouse aesthetic.” Diners can enjoy smoked and grilled meats, vegetables and fish cooked on a yakitori grill, as well as sushi and a chef’s tasting menu.

  2. Truluck’s Ocean’s Finest Seafood and Crab
    7161 Bishop Road
    The upscale seafood restaurant may be best known for its signature Florida stone crab, but its menu also offers a variety of crab and lobster dishes, salads, sandwiches, steaks and other seafood combinations. It is set to open sometime this year.

  3. World of Beer
    5774 Grandscape Blvd.
    This 4,000-square-foot beer-centric restaurant is planned to open in the Grandscape development in early 2023. In addition to dozens of beers from around the globe, the menu features burgers, sandwiches, salads and tacos.

  4. Seapot Korean BBQ & Hot Pot
    1900 N. Central Expressway
    This will be the first Seapot location outside of California. The all-you-can-eat joint will serve made-to-order hot pot dishes where guests can choose a soup, meat and add-ons. Seapot also offers small plates served on a conveyor belt.

  5. Cava
    1901 Preston Road
    The former Zoës Kitchen is being converted into the Mediterranean fast-casual restaurant Cava and will feature a wide range of Mediterranean bowls and pitas. It is tentatively set for a February opening, becoming Plano’s second Cava. The first location opened in Legacy West in 2019.

  6. Salad and Go
    3401 Midway Road
    Since its founding in 2013, Arizona-based Salad and Go has quickly gained a loyal following for its made-to-order salads, wraps and soups. The chain has one Plano location on Coit Road. This second outpost is set to open in early spring.
