You People will definitely want to make Sundown at Granada your new go to brunch spot. Their new brunch menu is to die for. The new menu was created by Chef Jason West who honed is culinary skills in New Orleans, LA. He formerly performed his delicious artistry at the world renowned Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans. All we can say is boy aren’t we glad Chef Jason has decided to take his talents to Dallas. The new brunch menu is loaded with goodness and anchored by the bananas foster french toast and chilaquiles dishes, which are game changing. The new brunch menu, ‘it’s all good’, literally. We suggest You People enjoy our last bit of summer by hanging out at Sundown’s rooftop with your favorite cocktail on a Saturday and come right back on Sunday to enjoy an exquisite brunch. You’ll be glad you did.
This Dallas Hidden Gem is located in the Harwood District. Marie Gabrielle is located off of the beaten path but very quaint and pristine. Marie’s is known for creating a visually stimulating dining experience. The outlook from the dining room is the 1.5 acre garden oasis viewed through the restaurant’s floor to ceiling windows, which is amazing. The menu definitely has something for everyone. You will find yourself trying to chose between two or three meal options because they all sound so good. The restaurant offers traditional plates such as pastas, chicken, steak, and fish, just to name a few, however, just as Marie Gabrielle describes it’s food, it truly is, “An example of exquisite hand crafted cuisine.” Everything tastes so good and is also surprisingly reasonably priced.
The restaurant is only open for breakfast (7am-930am) and lunch (11am-2pm) and closed evenings and weekends for private events. Marie’s also has a cafeteria style section of the restaurant which is just as delicious. Be sure to check their website for the cafeteria weekly specials. Just so you know valet service is complimentary at Marie’s. Don’t forget to check out the garden either after or before you dine it is definitely something to see. Marie’s is the perfect spot for a lunch/brunch date during the week, or if you are off on Friday or Monday and enjoying a three day weekend, or if you have a client you are taking to lunch that you want to impress but keep it affordable
Many of us have missed out on this place because it is closed to the public during evenings and weekends; but if any of “You People” have or have had the opportunity to check out Marie’s let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Dick’s located in Cedar Hill is your classic down home diner with a modern feel. Dick’s Uptown Cafe is a local favorite. Just about all of your classic breakfast/brunch dishes can be found on the menu here, from pancakes to hash-browns, eggs, and bacon with a few unique surprises mixed in as well. If you don’t make it for brunch the lunch menu is solid as well. Dick’s does not re-invent the wheel, but it does classic diner-type selections well. You really can’t go wrong at Dick’s. However, as you will notice, Brendan was not available for this episode of our Live Review so we would like to introduce to ‘You People’ our special guest, who did not share our same, shall we say, “Enthusiasm”.
