Dallas old-timers might remember an ital place called Alessio’s, popular w/ old-farty HP types; can offer no personal testimony, but it was open 16 yrs so that’s sumfin. Owner Alessio Franceschetti has since worked at a coupla other places but now has a new Alessio’s, this time in East Dallas, up the st from Jimmy’s Food Store. (All that ‘hood needs is one more buzzy enterprise and it’ll be an official hot-spot. Perhaps you've heard that Tom Spicer, the boutique produce supplier to 5-star joints such as York St., plans to open a produce market, at 1410 Fitzhugh, 2 doors down from Jimmy's. Assuming he can get the bldg in shape. Not to mention financing.) Ever eat at the Vietnamese restaurant Pho Kim? That’s where Alessio’s is.
