The Grape

This Lower Greenville mainstay is still one of the city's most charming bistros

The Grape is famous for a lot of things: romance, wine, mushroom soup, brunch, burgers. Seems like an odd mix, we know, but for this charming restaurant, one of Dallas’ most beloved wine bistros, the mix makes sense. Despite its legacy as a special-occasion place, affable owners Brian and Courtney Luscher have turned it into a comfortable neighborhood joint worth frequenting. And the interesting yet approachable menu is also affordable. Look for bistro favorites such as mussels, steak frites and roasted chicken, most of which are available in smaller portions that ring up at less than $20 each. Brunch at The Grape stays pretty packed, because that award-winning burger (thanks, Texas Monthly) previously was a brunch-only item. (The Luschers started serving it on Sunday and Monday nights, too, to keep up with the demand.) Although the burger may be what comes out of the kitchen most during Sunday brunch, we are defenseless against the Haystack: half scrambled eggs, melted Muenster, roesti potatoes, grilled tomato slices, avocado and nest of frisee. We love the balance of textures and temperatures, as well as the swirl of sriracha that provides just the right tinge of heat.

Come As You Are wine dinners—a steal at $45 per person for three courses—keep wine accessible and enjoyable. The Grape does happy hour from 4:30-7 pm, Monday-Friday.
