Downtown Dallas diners are blessed with yet another eating option with the opening of Petro Tower Grill, a full-service restaurant and bar in the Cambria Dallas Downtown hotel.
Located at 1907 Elm St., on the first floor of the historic Tower Petroleum Building in the central business district, Petro Tower Grill is aimed at travelers and local business people.
Open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the restaurant features Southern cuisine with an "added flair." There are burgers, filet mignon, tortilla-crusted salmon, and pasta primavera.
At breakfast, there are pancakes, an egg white omelet with chicken, spinach, mushrooms, and avocado, and a $9 croissant sandwich with ham, American cheese, and scrambled eggs.
The lunch menu includes half a dozen salads, including Caesar, Cobb, wedge with shrimp, and a steak taco salad. There's an Angus burger with American cheese, and a burger with green chili, egg, and pepper jack cheese.
There are also short rib sliders and a mac and cheese with pork.
The dinner menu includes lunch items plus chicken legs with black beans, corn, and avocado; filet mignon with creamed spinach and fingerling potatoes; and pasta primavera with broccoli, onion, spinach, mushrooms, tomato, and garlic.
Burgers are $15 and the most expensive entree is a $37 rib eye.
The restaurant boasts a distinct art deco style and a prime downtown location.
It also boasts a daily happy hour from 5-7 pm, with cocktails and shareable plates such as sliders, flatbreads, a charcuterie board, wine, and beers.
There are currently 16 wines by the glass, including two labels from Texas, Brennan and Messina Hof.
Cocktails include a margarita, a cocktail pairing rye with apple juice and ginger beer, and a mezcal drink that has tequila, vermouth, and chocolate bitters; that's kind of fancy, right?
Cambria Dallas, part of Choice Hotels, is managed by Fillmore Hospitality. It describes its décor as modern, with rooms that feel like an upgrade, and fresh, local cuisine. There are currently 36 properties open across the country and more under development in the U.S. and Canada.
