The Domain Northside continues its seemingly endless restaurant expansion with the opening of Flower Child and Culinary Dropout, two disparate concepts from Sam Fox, who also opened True Food Kitchen and North Italia.

Described as a “playground for grown-ups,” Culinary Dropout serves dishes like Thai chili chicken wings, bbq pork belly nachos and Cap’n Crunch crusted French toast. The restaurant, which also features a full bar and games like ping pong and cornhole, is located at 11721 Rock Rose, Suite #100 and is open daily for lunch and dinner.

Next door to that playful concept is the more responsible Flower Child, a clean-eating spot that serves a variety of salads and grain bowls topped with proteins like grass-fed steak and organic tofu, as well as a roster of vegetarian dishes like Indian-spiced cauliflower and spicy Japanese eggplant. Flower Child serves kombucha on tap and takes the elevated-consciousness marketing approach the extra mile, with a yoga mat “parking” area. Flower Child is also located at 11721, in the suite adjacent to Culinary Dropout. It is open daily for lunch and dinner.
