Where to Drink and Dine During the Dallas Art Fair

By Eliza Jordan

April 5, 2017

In town for Dallas Art Fair and looking for the perfect place to grab a cocktail or bite to eat? In Whitewaller, out next week, you’ll see a carefully curated list of establishments to guide you from breakfast to dinner, and from happy hour to nightcap. Ahead of the fair, to make planning a little easier, we’re providing that list here.

Grange Hall

Grange Hall is one of the top spots, both for shopping and dining. Since 2004, owners Rajan Patel and Jeffrey Lee have been dedicated to offering its community a discerning level of luxury—creating an inspiring, beautiful, and slightly mysterious space. Grange Hall is an exquisite staple in Dallas for those looking to find something unique. Whitewaller insiders agree, it is hands-down the best spot for lunch. And we suggest working off those calories by perusing the store’s collections of designer jewelry, accessories, home decor, apothecary items, epicurean delights, and floral arrangements for all occasions. The Snob Sandwich or Snob Salad are perfect for lunch out with friends. The caviar pasta is a must, if you’re lucky enough to find it on the menu. Be sure to consider the sea salted caramels by Artisan du Chocolat and vegan chocolate from Le Snob. After lunch, explore the shop’s large selection of oxidized bronze sculptural vases, watches by Christian Koban, candles by Cire Trudon, cashmere by Oyuna, porcelain works by Nymphenburg, or send the Hellebores floral arrangement to someone special.

Whitewaller Recommends: The Snob Sandwich for lunch.

FT33

FT33 opened in October 2012 to serve the Dallas food scene something fresh and inventive. With an extensive roster of local famers, and all products sourced from within a 300-mile radius, the restaurant operates with a farm-to-table ethos, offering healthy and savory dishes alike.

Whitewaller Recommends: A tasting of the entire menu.

Le Bilboquet

This French bistro, the sister location to New York’s, is a European escape from the bustle of Dallas. With Le Bilboquet‘s garden room and two options for private dining, guests can enjoy grass-fed meat options, seafood, desserts, and delectable wines.

Whitewaller Recommends: Joining the Bilboquet Wine Club.

Nobu

Known for its delicious Japanese cuisine, this Nobu location opened in 2005 with its eye-catching river stone wall and onyx sushi bar. Serving guests a touch of southern charm, Nobu wins over the community with its famed omakase, new style sashimi, and warm interior.

Whitewaller Recommends: Tuna Tataki with Cilantro Dressing.

Nick & Sam’s

This moody steakhouse, filled with white tablecloths, is a Dallas favorite. With classic dishes, seafood, Japanese beef, sushi, salads, sides, shared plates, and desserts, Nick & Sam’s also offers wine, specialty cocktails, and its art on the walls for sale, too.

Whitewaller Recommends: Sunday Supper—a themed dinner on the last Sunday every month.
