Brunch and More
For Dallas' best-kept dining secret, hightail it to CityLine
The mammoth mixed-use development CityLine has been creating buzz ever since it was first announced in 2013. And now that it's open, the buzz certainly hasn't stopped — especially when it comes to CityLine's restaurants. From local favorites to delicious concepts you won't find anywhere else in Dallas, CityLine is serving up meals for every appetite.
With State Farm, Children's Medical Center, Raytheon, and Texas Health Resources offices onsite, hundreds of hungry Richardson workers have already discovered CityLine for lunch. But the area isn't bound to a 9-5 weekday schedule, as evidenced by its awesome brunch, happy hour, and dinner offerings. Take advantage of the stellar parking situation (it's always free for restaurant guests) and find your new favorite eatery.
Forget the downtown and Uptown crowds and get your brunch on each Sunday from 11 am-3 pm in Richardson. Jasper's, the "gourmet backyard" restaurant developed by chef Kent Rathbun, serves up such delectable dishes as a white truffle aged gouda omelette, Gramma Minnie's fried chicken and waffles, a crabcake Benedict, rotisserie pulled pork tacos, and wood-grilled flatiron steak and eggs.
CityLine also has an easy-to-get-to location of Fernando's Mexican Cuisine, which ups the ante by serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. In addition to such Tex-Mex favorites as chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, and breakfast tacos, there are also $3.75 mimosas, Bloody Marys, screwdrivers, frozen blueberry mojitos, and margaritas (swirls, too, of course).
And it's hard not to swing by Top Pot Doughnuts & Coffee any day of the week for a "hand-forged" doughnut. More than 40 varieties to choose from presents an excellent daily challenge.
The phrase "it's 5 o'clock somewhere" is especially apt at CityLine, because its happy hours aren't limited to so strict a timeline. Several of the restaurants offer specials every single day of the week, including Tricky Fish, Good Union Bar-B-Que, and Jasper's. Some go by "the earlier, the better" when it comes to getting the party started, such as Fish City Grill and Whole Foods Market at 3 pm and Fernando's beginning at 11:30 am. Coal Vines offers free munchies to go with its drink and pizza specials and Edoko Sushi & Robata discounts its maki rolls to only $8 between 5 and 6:30 pm on weekdays.
Of the more than two dozen restaurants at CityLine, several offer a unique chance to dine local in DFW. For example, it's the only place you'll find Good Union Bar-B-Que and Tricky Fish, along with locally owned and operated outposts of Tom + Chee, Red Mango, Nestle Toll House Cafe by Chip, Fernando's, and Edoko Sushi. With new tenants being announced all the time, there's always a new favorite just waiting to be discovered at CityLine.
