Favorite Restaurants in Bishop Arts District

CLH Aug 8, 2010 03:25 PM

I have never eaten at a restaurant in the Bishop Arts District...do you have any recommendations for a good date night with the husband. Also, what are your thoughts on SMOKE? Never been there either....

    Hatties, Tillmans and Bolsa will all please.

    The latest incarnation of Smoke is pretty special and well worth a visit.

      Dallas Dude said it. SMOKE is better than ever. Bolsa is the restaurant York Street wants to be. Hattie's is the best southern restaurant in town. Don't forget DUDE SWEET CHOCOLATES while your there because they are unbelievable. Bishop Arts is THE hot spot now.

        I found Tillman's somewhat underwhelming on a recent lunch trip. Lackluster service never helps either.

        But Dude, Sweet Chocolates is worth the trip alone, and I found The Soda Gallery to be pretty fun as well. You can mix and match your six packs there, which is great for trying a range of cream soda's and root beers.

          I want to plan a little Dude Sweet Party if anyone is interested. Katherine would show us a pretty cool time. sampling chocolates, and some of her sublime cocktails she does for the wine walks, that would be fun.

      Love, Hattie's! And all the rest.

        With all the great Tex-Mex and Mex-Mex in the area, I think Veracruz Cafe's Meso-Mex often gets overlooked. I've never had a bad meal there, in fact most have been quite good.

        Probably the friendliest service in Bishop Arts as well.

        Also, Tillman's for a really good time, Eno's for good/unique pizza and beer, Hattie's for brunch.

          Eno's Pizza for great pizza, fantastic service (they're amazingly kid-friendly too), and live music on I think Friday and Saturday nights; check that out to be sure if you're going for the music. Vera Cruz for a nice, tasty departure from Tex Mex, and a stunningly beautiful restaurant with gorgeous art. Vitto Italian has an extensive menu, friendly service, and better-than-average Italian food. Bolsa, down the street from Bisop Arts, is just an amazing place. That's the only way to describe it. Fresh, local, organic, creative. I can't wait to try out more Bishop Arts eats.

            Eno's has a nice beer selection, too.
