The Grape Restaurant: A Classic Urban Bistro

October 22, 2014 4:02 pm

The Grape Restaurant is a Dallas institution that has been open since 1972. Launched by two friends who were inspired by bistros and wine bars in New York City and Europe, The Grape was the first restaurant in Dallas to have a blackboard menu, as well as one of the first to offer wine by the glass.

The atmosphere is cozy and dark with an upscale, urban feel. The restaurant's signature item is the mushroom soup, described as thick and creamy with sizeable chunks of mushroom. Other notable dishes are the braised lamb tartines, which fans describe as rich, smoky, and tender, and the bistro steak frites, tenderloin steak with garlic fries.
