Tracy Miller's long awaited Rosemont (2912 Elm St., 214-741-6066) opened its doors today, an event marked quietly by a tangle of white balloons tied up out front under cloudy skies. I first learned of the new restaurant while interviewing Miller during my review of Local last November. A tipster alerted me to the opening this morning.

Inside the sparsely decorated space, white tones dominate, accented with a few colorful flowers in ceramic vases behind the bar and on each of the tables. According to their website Rosemont will "feature an upscale modern American menu, emphasizing straightforward, approachable cuisine that both looks and tastes clean and composed."

The plates may look upscale, but they couldn't be any more casual. A bowl of cheerios, currants and granola graces your table when you sit down, and grilled cheese and ham sandwiches are cut into tiny triangles, just like Mom did. You might want to sit on the floor and watch cartoons on the television while you eat.

A table wrapping up breakfast as I sat for lunch snacked on doughnuts while they waited for their check. I asked, but had missed the treat. Breakfast was over, and the dude with with powdery sugar on his fingers turned the screws. "They're really good," he mouthed.

They looked really good. And considering the desserts served back at Local, I'm willing to bet they are. For now, I'm willing to say Deep Ellum has a new casual eatery that looks really interesting.

Deep Ellum in the 80's/early 90's was GREAT....Dada, 500 Club, 2826, Clearview, etc.!  You could be GUARANTEED not to run into yuppie assholes back them.........it was great.  People that wanted to fight, with tight shirts and fancy/queen like hair went to Greeneville, or West End (Dallas Alley). It was all artists back then.  We would drink in the July Alley area watering holes, then head to Connemara in Allen, and make art.  Methinks you were like a 4th string jock back in the day, that thought you were "it"....and now yer just an aging,  worried, wandering fat man trying to reclaim anything of his youth.  Should have spent more time reading-effhead!

It'd be soo awesome if all of you just ACTUALLY kept your pen-names anonymous or at the very least not announce that your bloggers when you come into restaurants. ; )

Deep Ellum in 2012 is a very different place than it was in its 80s/90s heydays.  Even in the best of times back then, it was mainly a destination.  An "entertainment district" for people elsewhere in Dallas to commute into at night before commuting back to homes elsewhere. There place is much more local now, and the commuter yuppies/punks are largely going elsewhere. 

seriously?
seriously?

Agreed.  Although this isn't new for Deep Ellum
