Rooftop patios in Dallas are both a blessing and a curse. The Dallas skyline is one of the best in the country so anytime you can enjoy a meal and drinks while overlooking downtown, it's always a great view. However, the Texas sun can be quite unforgiving and that usually narrows down rooftop patio pimping. But Top Knot addresses this issue with modern architecture. Positioned above Uchi Dallas, Top Knot features a lovely rooftop patio that is covered and kept cool with lots
Uptown is one of my favorite areas of Dallas. It's quite walk-able so a lot of restaurants and bars are gonna be fairly close. Often times you'll find a neighborhood spot if you just randomly drive through the streets. Such was the case for me and the discovery of City Council. Tucked away on side streets and just a block away from another favorite brunch spot of mine, City Council is a neighborhood discovery that you'll want to call your own. City Council sits right on the c
A few weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday. The days of throwing a big birthday bash are pretty much gone. Now, I value things like sitting down, drinking wine, and filling my belly with awesome food. For this year, I decided I was gonna celebrate with a birthday brunch. Of course I would, right? Cedar Grove was my selected destination. This relatively new restaurant has a great buzz but it wasn't the reviews that brought me here. Nope. What was it? The green chairs. Green is
I have probably driven past So & So’s hundreds…maybe thousands…of times. And never visited. A couple of weeks ago, that changed. And not only was I treated to a fabulous brunch, but live music, as well. So & So’s, located on the vibrant Mckinney Avenue in the Uptown area, proved to be a good choice. As I entered the restaurant, I was allowed to choose my own seat, although there weren’t many left. Since So & So’s is located in a popular area of restaurants and bars, that wasn
Every once in a while, we're gonna take a break out of our usual brunch features and feature a breakfast specialty shop. Usually these locations serve a more traditional breakfast and are alcohol free, but their kitschiness deserves some Brunchlust shine. Our first feature belongs to the cute and quaint Krave Cereal Bar in Cedar Hill, TX, just 15 minutes outside of Downtown Dallas. Krave is a small neighborhood spot that features a cereal bar, smoothies, fro-yo, and pastries.
It's almost like a unicorn. When you find a fabulous brunch spot that's not overly crowded, with plenty of great food options, and drink specials that can't be beat. Ivy Kitchen is that unicorn. Nestled right outside of Look Cinema in North Dallas, Ivy Kitchen occupies a beautiful corner spot that links directly to Look. Often times, people will come here for a drink or two before viewing their film. And with good reason. Ivy Kitchen has always had a friendly staff and great
Welcome to State & Allen. Probably one of the easiest restaurants to locate in Dallas, as it's on the corner of State Street and Allen Street. Divided into 3 eating areas and sporting a wraparound outdoor patio, it's a happy medium of quaint, neighborhood spot meets Uptown chic. Brunch at State & Allen is almost like a well kept secret. It's rare to have a wait longer than 30 minutes and the atmosphere is always festive. State & Allen also goes out on a ledge and hosts Uptown
