Dallas Observer's Description

This gastropub in the former Kavala space was opened by a conglomerate of local hospitality hotshots, among them chef Kelly Hightower, whose collective restaurant and nightlife pedigree includes Bolla, the Green Room and Hibiscus. From the kitchen come brick-oven fired pizzas (three-mushroom with white truffle oil) and globally inspired entrees (marinated New York strip Vietnamese style with baby bok choy, chili peanuts, cucumber, mint and roasted tomato-ginger sauce). The spotlight shines upon the globally inspired small-plate options. Among the seven available are chicken Parmesan sliders with garlic asiago fries and spicy lamb kofta with minted yogurt dip, each $10 or less. Beyond that, the changing nightly specials are also worth consideration. So too, is the wide-ranging beer and cocktail menu, which offers a well selected rotation of brews. Who knows when they will make it back to the tapas-heavy menu?

    A glass of cava, pita and hummus appetizer, spinach and feta pizza. Yum! Don't be afraid of the patio, nice and toasty!

    Gets the job done when most of the other bars in Dallas are mopping the kitchen floors. And the neighborhood locals who congregate at the bar make this one of Dallas' best places to spend late night.

    Love this place! "Mid-century modern/retro"... It's like local townies meets hipsters meets The Jetsons.

  • Gerardo V. on 11/21/10

    get a pimm's cup or a bossanova, both are A+.
