New American Restaurant
“HG Supply is just down Greenville Ave. maybe a 5 min drive from the guest house. Really good farm to table -ish fare. And they are willing to prepare options any way you like. Be sure to check out the rooftop!”

BBQ Joint
“Barbecue lovers flock to stand in line at this Deep Ellum barbecue haven in search of brisket and sausage and Pecan Lodge’s signature (and massive) beef rib. Don’t forget to save room for a bowl of banana pudding – the recipe comes from co-owner Diane Fourton’s grandmother, and the Boss Lady is serious about it being consistently top-notch.”

Cafe
“Garden Café is a daytime eatery off the beaten path. It’s tucked into an old historic neighborhood in Junius Heights and from the outside doesn’t look like anything special. Don’t let that fool you though. When you visit, insist to sit outside on their backyard patio amidst the organic garden for the best experience. Everything here is made from scratch and you’ll get a true farm-to-table meal. They offer Southern-style brunch with options like omelets, cheese grits, and pancakes and waffles with organic Vermont maple syrup. For lunch, their specialties are soups, crisp salads, and tasty sandwiches. Their espresso bar features local coffee from Oak Cliff roasters and is unmatched. Try the Iced “Toddy” Coffee which is their take on cold brew.”
