Hockey Billionaire’s New Dallas Sports Bar Brings Real Restaurant Cred to the Arena

This is Far Beyond Pub Food

When your dinner service begins with an avocado gimlet, you know you’re in for a treat.

Moxie’s, the latest restaurant to open at Crescent Court, is an upscale sports bar owned by the Dallas Stars billionaire owner Tom Gaglardi and it is the first location for the restaurant outside of Canada.

Like the aforementioned gimlet, Moxie’s cocktails are inventive (there’s also a grapefruit mojito and a blackberry mint bourbon mule), as is the rest of its menu that runs the gamut.

Standouts from executive chef (and Canadian) Brandon Thordarson include a guilt-free Korean fried cauliflower appetizer served with spicy gochujang pepper sauce and jalapeño lime dip, plus juicy steaks — grain-fed and sourced from Texas butcher, Lone Star Meats — that come with a choice of roasted baby potatoes, lemon quinoa, or a baked potato packed with cream cheese, green onion, and bacon.

Other highlights: lobster and shrimp linguine, chipotle-lime mahi mahi tacos, Scottish salmon, a crispy chicken sandwich, and a bread-free burger topped with cheddar cheese and wrapped in iceberg lettuce.

Moxie’s also serves Saturday and Sunday brunch from 11 am to 3 pm; we suggest the huevos rancheros or the bacon and white cheddar omelette. Counting calories? The smoked salmon, egg white, and goat cheese omelette is only 400 calories and comes with multigrain toast and fresh berries. Don’t forget a mimosa.

Moxie’s Grill & Bar, 100 Crescent Court, 469.687.0050.
