Looking for a unique place to dine? Check out The Grape restaurant on Greenville Ave. in Dallas. We were able to bring the entire crew for brunch and were happily surprised at their delicious banana nut muffins as they sat us!
We gathered around in their fairly laid back establishment in the back area, near where they keep their wine stashed. The staff was pleasant and was quick to get us started, which was great! We all ordered our drinks, water, orange juice, pineapple juice, grapefruit juice and a sprite. So far, so good! From there we ordered Fried Polenta Cheese Fritters, which were quite delicious! We all enjoyed them, but beware, they do have a little spice to them! (Which I loved!)
Melissa got herself the “Standard Breakfast,” which as you might guess, was pretty standard with eggs, bacon, hash and toast! She thoroughly enjoyed everything on her plate.
Dizzy got the Biscuits and Gravy, which she enjoyed so much she barely spoke at all due to shoving the food into her mouth. Mmm, they must be good! (I will be trying it next time I go, I think!)
Ace got the “Classic Cheeseburger,” which has been named the “Best Burger in Texas” by Tx Monthly. He enjoyed the burger, but, apparently did not agree with TX Monthly’s assessment. Still, though, he enjoyed the meal. He LOVED the fries, though! He could barely stop eating them to eat the burger. Honestly, I kind of think his burger wasn’t as good because he was eating his fries for so long that the burger probably started to get a little cold.
I got the steak and eggs, which in general, would be one of the last things I would order. In fact, it was like Ace and I reversed roles. I am normally the burger guy and he’s the steak guy, but not today! I thoroughly enjoyed my entire meal. From the steak, to the eggs on top of my steak, the hash and the toast. I also got a side of bacon. I had to give it a try! It was all done exactly how I wanted and you could tell the food was fresh.
And, of course, Little man got the Blueberry Cornmeal Griddle Cakes. He said he liked it a lot, but knowing him and how he eats when he really LOVES something, I would say that he only liked them a little. But, still, he ate them, so who can complain?
The price was reasonable, and everything went pretty well. Also, they have free valet parking for patrons of The Grape Restaurant, which is important! Use it if you go! I didn’t and ended up having to walk about four or five blocks just to get to the restaurant. Oops! Also recommended: Get a reservation. It is helpful.
Definitely check it out, it was one of our better outings in the last few months.
