From the visionaries of Primebar, the recently opened Townhouse Kitchen + Bar is the latest culinary attraction at Galleria Dallas. This industrial loft-style restaurant with stacked-wood walls and woven leather booths was envisioned by Plan B Group’s Tatianna Sneed, Thomas Weber, Chryssi Eddy and Royce Ring — the designers who brought us the sleek-yet-inviting Oak, Urban Taco and Bolsa. Townhouse Kitchen + Bar chef Paul Niekrasz dishes out contemporary American fare with Latin, Asian and Mediterranean influences via items such as the ancho beef with charred tomatillo salsa, yellowfin tuna stack, Cubano sandwich and grilled Atlantic salmon. Parents will be pleased to know Niekrasz offers a healthy “non-fried food” kids’ menu — which includes a bento box (grilled chicken or spiced turkey and their choice of pasta or veggies), a build-your-own wrap and the simply grilled chicken. Half of the eatery is dedicated to bar enthusiasts, with more than 19 beers on top. We also hear the cucumber cooler cocktail (made with Effen cucumber vodka, fresh citrus and soda) is happy hour’s most-requested quencher. 13270 Dallas Parkway 972.300.0986; townhousedallas.com.
