There are two more taco joints in town: Cesar’s Tacos and a new location of Taqueria Monterrey. Cesar’s, which is new to the Denton market, was founded in Dallas in 1996. The street taco shop is now at 1725 W. University Drive, taking the place of Catrina Grill. Taqueria Monterrey is adjoined to WinCo Foods at Rayzor Ranch Town Center.
Denton Pharmacy closed its doors in mid-June. The local pharmacy was located at 1620 W. University Drive.
Regional grocery store Brookshire’s is about to follow suit, and will close in the coming days. No official final day is set, but company officials estimated the store will close “on or around” July 23.
Swine and Garden is the latest food truck in Denton. Permanently parked at Armadillo Ale Works, the spot has two menus: one with all pig products and one that’s vegetarian. We can unofficially recommend the portabello mushroom skewers.
In other food news, there’s now a second location of Kurume Ramen & Izakaya at Rayzor Ranch Marketplace. The first location is across town at 1435 S. Loop 288.
The east side of the Square is filling out, with clothing boutique La Di Da open at 114 N. Locust St. The opening is more than a year and a half after the Downtown Mini Mall fire forced the neighboring shop to close its doors.
Also downtown, Les Muses is open at 209 W. Hickory St., the former home of Denton Grille. The vintage shop used to be located on North Elm Street.
VaChelle’s on the Square is also open. The new shop is at 121 N. Elm, the former home of Garden Gate. The shop has a variety of consigned furniture, home decor and antiques.
Denton will have one more grand opening this month: Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea, a national cafe company, will open its first Denton location with a community preview from 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday, July 28. The shop is located at 3220 Teasley Lane, Suite 120.
