Just minutes from Mosaic in Dallas is the Design District, known for its many art galleries and upscale home decor showrooms. In the last few years, a thriving restaurant scene has helped fuel a renaissance in this former warehouse district. Here are two fine dining establishments to add to your 2018 bucket list:
Meddlesome Moth | 1621 Oak Lawn Ave.
Winner of Best Gastropub from the Dallas Morning News (2013) and Best Beer Bar in Dallas from the Dallas Observer (2012), Meddlesome Moth is a must visit location for beer aficionados and foodies alike. Although it is technically a pub, the rich wood finishes, artisanal tiling, modern décor and artful design give this establishment an upscale ambiance.
Meddlesom Moth offers 40 drought beers, two live ales, and over 85 domestic and imported bottles to choose from. The food is crafted with a commitment to farm-to-table philosophy with the local ingredient sourcing listed right on the menu. The dishes are rich and decadent contemporary interpretations of international classics, including wagyu beef tartare, German bratwurst, and confit duck wings.
Oak | 1628 Oak Lawn Ave.
The Dallas Morning News named chef Brian Zenner among The Best in DFW Chefs (2017). His style features creative modern cuisine with elegant and artful plating. This is a truly memorable dining experience, but plan to make reservations well in advance of your visit.
The extensive wine and spirits selection has also gained Oak some national attention. The Golden Martini, rimmed with edible gold leaf and made from a decadent blend of Godiva white cocoa, Double Cross Vodka, dark-chocolate pearls and fresh berries garnered the attention of the food critics over at Zagat.
The dishes on the menu are designed with the intent to highlight the natural flavors of each ingredient. Whether you are looking for something rich or light, there are plenty of options to choose from, including Australian lamb loin, tandoori branzino, and roasted carrot cake with wild rice streusel and orange cinnamon ice cream.
