Dallas, I Miss You

Before I turned in my 2 weeks notice at Neimans, I met a girl who had just moved to Dallas and sent her an email gushing about all the spots she should explore in Dallas. I have been pretty homesick this week so I thought I would  give you my short list of favorite places in the Big D. I think sometimes it takes leaving a place to really appreciate what it was. 

Bishop Arts District 
Bolsa - an old car garage turned fancy restaurant
Enos- best pizza in town! AND get the "Sundae Sack" -its a must! 
Tillman's Roadhouse- amazing decor and cheeseburgers

Times Ten Cellars - GREAT wine favorite! You can order pizza that will deliver straight to your table. 
Legal Grounds - for breakfast/ brunch

White Rock Lake- fun to go picnic, run, walk, sit, nap, read 
Get TC's shaved ice...its a hole-in-the-wall but sooo yummy! My favorite is Tigers Blood (sounds gross, but its amazing!) 

Lower Greenville:
Concerts at Granada Theater
The Grape to eat great French cuisine
Simply Fondue
Snuffers - best (and most fattening) cheese fries in town! 
Glorias - great patio/ Tex Mex 

Henderson: quirky shopping and great bars/ places to eat
Gypsy Wagon (I want everything in this store) 
Now & Again (amazing home decor) 
The Pearl Cup - cute coffee shop
Common Table- great food!
J. Blacks &Capital Pub - great bars

Nick & Sams Grill - great for HH and brunch
Sangria- tapas/ great drinks (get a pitcher of the sparking Sangria)
Toulouse- another great French restaurant (try the escargot, its great!) 
Vino 100 - a quaint wine bar
Katy Trail Ice House - pretty new with a huge patio, very Austin-ish, relaxed, casual

West Village
Mannys- my favorite Mexican food- get the brisket tacos
Village Burger Bar (in West Village shopping center) - best burger in town! 
Mi Cocina- a chain, but amazing- Get the Mambo Taxi (but don't drive afterwards!) 

Family and Friends... I miss you all very much!!! Life is magical over here, but it would be PERFECT if you all were still just around the corner.

    Campisi's Egyptian Lounge - great pizza & love the mafia rumors
    Cafe Brazil - the best late night eatery
    Fadis - amazing Mediterranean food
