Dallas Observer's Description

Just the concept of local ingredients trucked in from the farm every day, the reliance on organic meats and vegetables, and the ever-changing menu would be enough to attract enough of a following to sustain this small Oak Cliff station. But the kitchen is pretty damn good too-even without a deep fryer or walk-in freezer as back-up. The flavors are intensely fresh and the dishes creative without being overwrought. And if that's not enough, the owners designed Bolsa with great sensitivity to the building's historic look and feel. OK, so it's an old auto shop-it still feels like part of a 1940s neighborhood. Open, airy, with a cool "beer garden"-style patio. Really, one of the best new restaurants.

    They don't take reservations, so the wait can be long. Great food however, I had the duck and it was delicious. The menu is very light on appetizers.

    Historic Oak Cliff has a great little gem in Bolsa – a café with a small, comfort-food focused menu featuring local ingredients. -Monica Pope, Top Chef

    Fresh, local ingredients, a new menu each day and the best cocktails in the city! What’s more, it's in the Bishop Arts District in the Oak Cliff neighborhood. Chase, The A-List: Dallas

    Graham Dodds had a fantastic run as Bolsa's executive chef, and we're excited to see what Jeff Harris does with the organic-friendly, locally sourced Oak Cliff restaurant. [Eater 38 Member]
