Three’s a Chow Down

The long-vacant University House building near TCU finally has a restaurant tenant. Chef David Hollister and restaurateur Chris Hutchinson opened Common Ground in November. Hollister, once a sous chef for cowboy cook Grady Spears, also opened beer-and-sandwich concept Dagwoods Grinders and Growlers near Ridgmar Mall in August and followed it up with Dagwoods Fire Grill Tap on Foch Street near W. Lancaster. With leather chairs, dark wood and a full bar, Common Ground will serve a lighter version of Texas fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Located at 3201 S. University Drive, the masculine space includes an outdoor patio with a fireplace.
