Dallas Mavericks fans will have a new must-visit restaurant in 2023 after the DFW Airport board approved Dirk Nowitzki and his business partners to open a new spot. Fans can get a meal and meet virtual Dirk at Nowitzki near Terminal C when it opens next year.
It is still in the planning stages, but the restaurant is expected to serve international foods, including multiple options from Dirk’s homeland, according to the Dallas Morning News (subscription required). It is the design that will draw in Mavericks fans, and the chance to meet Nowitzki, even if it is just in virtual form.
Dirk was in attendance for Thursday’s meeting, and the airport released a teaser video of what the restaurant is expected to look like when it is finished. Here is a closer look.
