Dallas BBQ and Art's District
The highest rated restaurant in all of Dallas is of course a BBQ joint, more specifically the Pecan Lodge in Deep Ellum. When we got there right at opening a long line had already formed, by the time we left it must have been over an hour wait.
The inside is huge yet still accommodatingly homey.
A classic barbecue menu chalk board.
We chose to sit outside because it was a perfect 75 degrees before noon (the temperatures reached well beyond 80's later on).
We shared everything. This pulled pork sandwich was unbelievable, the bread alone was impressive. Mac and cheese with bacon, need I say more?
The collard greens, best I ever had and my favorite dish of the day believe it or not. Along with a sample platter of brisket (Steve's favorite), hot sausage and a big ol' rib. All amazing.
Successfully slaughtered it all.
Deep Ellum is a pretty hip area, much more spread out than we're used to in NYC but lots to explore.
We stumbled into this warehouse and were not disappointed.
Lulu B's is the largest vintage store I've ever been inside while still remaining to be well curated with totally reasonable prices. I wish we could shop for our whole apartment in here...
Later headed over to the Bishop Arts District, which was so freaking hip, I loved it. Amazing boutiques, super cool furniture stores and apparently delicious food but we were too full to eat again for quite some time. Always leaving something for next time.
Never too full for cocktails. Can't wait to explore this awesome city again soon!
