Matt McCallister — the former protege of Stephan Pyles who gained national fame after opening his Design District restaurant FT33 — has finally announced his sophomore effort. Filament will open “in spring 2015,” according to a release, in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Focusing on simple Southern ingredients — “items that I eat on my own time,” McCallister says — it will be approachable, but with surprises. We’re used to surprises from him, and this is a happy one.
