The comedy duo to open new restaurant, TK’s, in Addison on New Years Eve
Husband-and-wife comedians TK Matteson and Kara Kimbrough are bringing a new kind of comedy club to Dallas this New Year’s Eve.
TK’s opens in the space that was once Public School 972 in Addison. This restaurant, bar and comedy club will go beyond the typical comedy experience of a “stuffy club, a minimum of two drinks and hardly any food in sight” with a restaurant, bar and “speakeasy” 1930s-style underground for private dining.
Although they are both originally from Texas, Matteson and Kimbrough met while they were chasing their comedy dreams in Hollywood. They booked shows at the Hollywood Improv and Ice House in Pasadena, but returned to create an intimate showroom for the comics and other acts.
The restaurant, which is a separate space, will be open for lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. The adjoining bar has a large outdoor patio overlooking Prestonwood Pond. Kimbrough developed the menu herself.
“Kara and I have a passion for good comedy, amazing food, and personalized customer service, all delivered with a winning sense of humor,” said Matteson. “It’s the culmination of everything we love, and we can’t wait to serve up our favorite dishes and jokes with the neighborhood.”
TK’s will host its grand opening on New Years Eve with a special three-course dinner and comedy shows featuring Matteson, Kimbrough and Todd Rex at 8 p.m. or 10 p.m. There will also be a DJ and a midnight champagne toast. The pre-fix dinner will include dishes such as burrata crostini, cabernet braised ribs, butternut squash ravioli and crème brûlée. Call 945-800-7668 for reservations.
If you’ve booked for New Years Eve, the duo also host a pajama brunch on New Years Day, where guests can stock up on carbs and bacon and listen to live music. Guests who show up in their pajamas will receive a free mimosa.
TK’s, 14854 Montfort Drive (Addison), Tuesday to Friday, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday 10 am – 1 am; Sunday 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. Closed on Mondays
