In the spot where Primo’s ruled for decades is Lyla, a coastal-Italian restaurant with fare and ambiance to match.


A new restaurant, Lyla, has opened in one of the most notable spaces in Uptown on McKinney Avenue, where Primo’s Tex-Mex was for decades. Lyla comes from the Dallas-based hospitality group GAP Concepts, which also owns the Instagram-ready, bright-pink spot XOXO.
