Dallas is certainly not lacking in brunchable locales, but a stylish addition to the weekend rotation never hurts. So, it’s exciting news that Design District restaurant Sassetta is now officially open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The trendy Italian spot, owned by Headington Companies, has extended its hours to open bright and early, and is introducing brand-new breakfast and lunch menus.
That means you can now soak in the romantic atmosphere at all hours of the day — sip cappuccinos on the arty patio, take lunch at the trendy bar, and struggle to find the obscure door in the light of day.
For the most important meal of the day, Sassetta is offering freshly-baked breads and pastries, Counter Culture Coffee beverages, and an edited menu of cafe-style bites. Options include house-made granola and yogurt alongside brioche toast topped with ricotta, seasonal jam and burnt honey; a chicken sausage egg sandwich on focaccia; and a roasted mushroom, spinach and fontina stuffed frittata.
As far as lunch, all of the favorites from Sassetta’s dinner menu will be available – fresh pastas and wood-fired pizza – in addition to a newly-added selection of sandwiches. The Italian-inspired sandwiches will range from caprese to chicken parmesan to tuna conserva topped with arugula, roasted bell pepper and black olive aioli.
All of the aforementioned pastries and breads will be baked daily at Commissary, the off-site bakery and butcher shop for Headington Companies’ restaurants. Familiar with the luscious baked goods at Weekend Coffee, or the hearty bread served at Americano? Commissary is to thank.
Speaking of which, the bakery is actually opening its very own grab-and-go café downtown this fall. More details to come.
In the meantime, you can get Commissary’s flaky croissants and flavorful focaccia at Sassetta, which is now open Sundays through Thursdays from 8 am to 10 pm, and Fridays and Saturdays from 8 am to 11 pm.
