Snowbird Cocktail Lounge & Kitchen 🍸

Head a little north of Dallas to enjoy great food and drinks at Snowbird Cocktail Lounge & Kitchen in Frisco. Located at The Star, this spot just opened in October and is the perfect place for a date night or night out.

Their tantalizing array of mixology cocktails is complemented perfectly by their upscale small bites. You won’t want to miss the Waygu tartare, roasted bone marrow, or truffle waffle fries appetizers. For a main, we love the seared scallops or whole roast snapper. Complete the meal with the miso dark chocolate tart or gooseberry rum cake. Yum!

We love some good Tex-Mex, and though there are many great options around the city, Escondido TexMex Patio may be one of your new favorites! Opened in early November 2022, this spot has already received rave reviews.

TLC Vegan Kitchen is Chef Troy Gardner’s newest culinary venture and a commitment to creating “a better world, one vegan dish at a time.” This delivery and curbside Dallas staple just opened a dine-in version in Far North Dallas.

They have everything from Pig-less Pepperoni Pizza to Buffalo Cauliflower Wings. We especially love their Fried TLC Sandwich with crispy chicken-fried oyster mushrooms.
