A New Restaurant Makes This Museum Even Cooler

Dallas’ Hottest New Hangout Spot?

BY // 05.31.16

The Dallas Museum of Art’s redesigned north entrance, dubbed the Eagle Family Plaza, is the ideal environment for chic idling in the Dallas Arts District.

Designed by Dallas-based firms Studio Outside, Hocker Design Group and Morrison Dilworth + Walls, the sleek new main entrance has a steel façade, wood decking and a manicured lawn anchored by British artist Rebecca Warren’s sculpture, Pas de Deux (Plaza Monument) — her first piece commissioned for display in the U.S. The commanding contemporary work serves as the first in a series of rotating pieces that will grace the grassy space.

For plaza noshing, head to the soon-to-open Socca, a Mediterranean eatery developed by James Beard Award-nominated chef Sharon Hage. The best part? The modernist spot is just a hop across the street from Klyde Warren Park. Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 N. Harwood St., 214.922.1200.
