    DALLAS - MAY 14: Mike Modano #9 of the Dallas Stars skates on the ice against the Detroit Red Wings during game four of the Western Conference Finals of the 2008 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs on May 14, 2008 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

    Dallas StarsMike Modano and Brett Hull are planning to open an uptown Dallas restaurant in the spot Riccardi's used to sit.

    They're calling the restaurant -- wait for it -- Hully & Mo Restaurant & Tap Room.

    According to their press release, "The sports-inspired restaurant will reflect a neighborhood feel with Texas Hill Country limestone, custom-designed black & brown leather booths, dark woods, open theater kitchen, and tap room lounge."

    Menus are set to feature "chef-driven American comfort food" -- which sounds like a T.G.I. Fridays to me -- but restaurateur Eddie Cervantes (who's opened Moctezuma's and Primo's in years passed) thinks the "neighborhood-friendly menu" will be customers back several times a week.

    Of course it's not only about the food, as the "tap room" portion is planned as more of a "place to hang out" with televisions (for watching Stars games, of course) and custom-designed leather chairs.

    Don't get your hopes up about seeing Hully or Mo lounging around -- there's a curtained VIP table for celebs.
