It’s sort of tucked away back near the intersection of Central and Edgemoor, but Carriage Parkway is a hotbed of restaurant deliciousness, from Thai Tradition to El Rodeo.
There’s also Toni D’s a deli and catering shop that turns 23 years old today. Owners Toni and Danny Shadid will celebrate the anniversary on Friday by offering its specials for the same price it did on Sept. 1, 1987, the day it opened. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Toni D’s homemade meat loaf with mashed potatoes and gravy and corn will sell for $3.99. (It’s $6.99 normally.) Sandwiches and salads also will be $3.99.
Carriage Parkway also was the site of Kobe Japanese Grill, a onetime popular dining destination (and original Carriage Crossing tentant) that closed earlier this year. Now, a new restaurant now is going in the space– Sake Hibachi Grill and Sushi Bar, which is owned by Hong Tao Zhang and Suhua Chen, the same people behind the Asia Town Buffet at 6160 E. Central. No word when it will open, but construction workers are sawing and hammering away as I type.
