3 Restaurants and Bars in Dallas Perfect for Celebrating a Birthday

If you’re a foodie, you’ll probably agonize over which restaurants and bars to visit for special occasions in Dallas-Fort Worth. Do you want to spend a lot or a little? Do you go to an old favorite restaurant or take a chance and try something new?

I celebrated my birthday earlier this week and went to three very different locations in Dallas that you might want to add to your birthday list.

Sister on Greenville Street in Dallas

Sister feels comfortable and relaxed, despite being less than a year old. (This Greenville Avenue restaurant has replaced The Grape, a Dallas spot we still miss.)

This is my order from sister: lobster and burrata as an aperitif; charred carrots with feta as a vegetable; And two rounds of pasta – mushroom lumache and chili calabrian ravioli. We skip the appetizers. The appetizers and pastas are so good, we didn’t seem to have room for more.

The sister is located at 2808 Greenville Ave. , Dallas. Reservation recommended But the lanes are not available.

Tatsu in Deep Elum

I also booked a coveted seat at the omakase little Tatsuo. I will warn you in advance. The queue is up to 300 people and Tatsu costs $170 per person. It is such an honor to have dinner here in more ways than one. But Wow: It was very special. I will remember this dinner for a very long time.

Tatsu is located at 3309 Elm Street, Dallas. Reservation required.

The Clifton Club on Fitzhugh Street in Dallas

Bars have personalities. Clifton Club is that stylish friend who never refuses a drink. I love her!

Summery and refreshing tequila mezcal cocktail. Caramelizing onions is familiar but much better than the stuff you buy at the store. I will be back here very soon, long before my birthday again.

The Clifton Club is located at 3333 N. Fitzhugh Ave. , Dallas. Reservations are not required except for parties of eight or more. Email info@cliftonclubdallas.com.

And the bonus idea:

I found a box of Crumbl Cookies on my doorstep for my birthday. It’s an easy and relatively inexpensive way to surprise anyone who loves candy, so remember Crumbl if you need a birthday gift for a friend.

Krumble owns More than 20 stores in Dallas-Fort Worth. Customers can order in advance for curbside pickup or delivery, or order without notice. The menu of six cookies changes every Monday.
