Former Mansion chef John Tesar to open Cedars Social next month

John Tesar has been flitting around a bit since he left the Mansion on Turtle Creek, but he seems to be settling down with a new concept, set to open in February. The Cedars Social is being described as a “cocktail den” and kitchen serving “modern comfort food.” Drinks will be designed by mixologist Michael Martensen for the lounge, developed by restaurateur Brian Williams.
