Group Dinner


If your looking for a classic Dallas spot with authentic Mexican food, Javier’s is the go-to place for birthdays, group dinners with friends and big celebrations.   Make sure to have a reservation.

Town Hearth

Town Hearth has a fun light hearted atmosphere with the most Instagram worthy ceiling of chandeliers.

Dolce Riviera

Al fresco dining, blue and white decor and authentic Riviera style make the perfect setting for this charming Italian favorite.


Dunston’s is an old school steak house whose Lover’s Lane location opened in 1969.  My family goes for the ribs, but I always opt for the good old fashioned salad bar.  This classic spot is causal, friendly and very low key.

Jose on Lovers

The perfect place for a laid back dinner, this bright Mexican inspired restaurant is homey, instagramable and fun all in one.


This cozy spot is always my first suggestion when it comes to girls night or date night.  I love that they offer brown rice in their sushi rolls and the booths are super comfortable!

Le Bilbouquet

This charming French restaurant is my family’s favorite for birthday celebrations!

Date Night

Sixty Vines

The all white look of this new to uptown spot is fresh and pretty.  The kitchen is open to a beautiful bar.  It is located right next to the Crescent Hotel and Stanely Korshak department store. Also a favorite for weekend brunch!

Up on Knox

An instagramable spot featuring beautiful decor and an amazing bar that is perfect for one on one conversation.


Asian Mint is great for a casual dinner.  They have lots of gluten free options.


This classic American spot has been my parents favorite date night and family dinner choice since I was little.  The leather booths make it feel cozy and warm.


This cute Bishop Art’s restaurant is perfect on a warm Friday night.  Stop by the adorable candle shop Society next door while waiting for a table outside.

Whole Foods Uptown

We love to walk to Whole Foods in Uptown and make a healthy salad then sit on the patio picnic tables for an easy week night dinner.


A low key sushi restaurant – we love to  sit at the bar.


A small sushi spot on Greenville Avenue – love this place for double dates.

Healthy Lunch

Grange Hall

The perfect place to meet girlfriends for a celebratory lunch with a very cool fashionable ambience.


This cozy spot is perfect for a girls lunch! They are known for their soufflés, marshmallow soup and the rise no.1 salad!  Especially love this spot over the holidays!

True Foods

The bright open kitchen has options for everyone with gluten free, organic and vegan meals on the menu. You have to try the refreshing Kale-aid drink – this restaurant is also a go-to for dinner!

Flower Child

The colorful walls and healthy menu make this a happy spot to meet friends for a casual lunch.

The Juice Bar

The Juice bar is my favorite for a quick and smoothie on the go.  I usually get the ‘Purple Haze’ and add spinach or the ‘Moutain Milk’ and sub apple for banana.  The anti inflammatory ‘turmeric shot’ is great on the side.


This pretty restaurant is perfect for a celebratory lunch!  Mirador is located on the top floor of Forty Five Ten, a beautifully curated designer boutique in the heart of Downtown Dallas.


When you don’t have the time to cook, Eatzi’s market offers so many options for a grab and go lunch or dinner.  They are known for their salad and sandwich bar!

Coffee Spots

Local Press & Brew

Visit Local Press & Brew in Oak Cliff on a pretty Saturday so that you can enjoy your juice and coffee in the cute outdoor space.


An adorable blue tile space located in the heart of downtown Dallas, Commissary is a mini market and espresso bar that also serves a delicious breakfast or lunch.


Ascension is my favorite laid back coffee stop that also has a tasty brunch.  Love that you can grab your coffee to go, stay awhile with your laptop, have a meeting or catch up with a friend at this local spot.  Their almond milk lattes are amazing!

Starbucks Reserve

I’m a basic Starbucks girl all the way and love that a new Starbucks reserve is walking distance from my place.  My go to order is an iced Americano with vanilla powder.


Placed inside the modern Joule Hotel, Weekend Coffee is a fun meeting spot in Downtown Dallas.

Brewed + Pressed

This West Village cafe includes pressed juices, healthy bites and Stumptown coffee.

Royal Blue

Located in Highland Park Village, this easy spot is perfect for catching up with a friend or hosting a meeting before grabbing a quick snack and working on your laptop.
