Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Braised lamb "tartines"
$$$, Modern, American, Breakfast, Vickery Place
"These things are addictive. You could stop with the perfect, butter-toasted French bread, but chef-owner Brian Luscher layers in rich lamb, roasted garlic, sweet onion jam, and oven-dried tomatoes to take it to another level. A final hit of Cambozola and a flash under the broiler creates a sharable dish that begs for a glass of Spanish red and a good group of friends."
Classic cheeseburger
$$$, Modern, American, Breakfast, Vickery Place
"There’s a reason it was voted best burger in Texas, because it is! The meat patty is made by hand, the pain au lait (milk bread) is wonderful and holds up to the perfectly cooked beef, the fires are great, and the service is impeccable. You can find this cheeseburger on their brunch menu."
The Haystack
$$$, Modern, American, Breakfast, Vickery Place
"The Haystack is great for Sunday brunch, served with Roesti potatoes, grilled tomatoes, avocado, cheese, and a spicy sriracha chili sauce. Brian Luscher is one of the most talented chefs in Dallas. The Haystack is everything you could want in a breakfast meal, especially after a late night."
