Sassetta has been high on my list since getting to Dallas, so I was excited to cross it off so early into my time here. I went with three girls who I have met through various walks of life, but have now all come to fit together in a unique way. Everything from the aesthetic, to the menus, to the plates, to the food is designed perfectly.
Almost all of us started with the Aperol spritz which paired great with the dry-aged meatballs and whipped ricotta, tuna crudo with strawberries, pistachios and mint, and the fritto misto. We then shared the mushroom salad, bolognese and peach & prosciutto pizza.
E Bar was by far the most suggested restaurant when I polled instagram last week for what to add to my list of Dallas restaurants. I didn’t waist time to go see what all the fuss was about. It’s located closer to Lakewood in East Dallas and is a little gem of a tex mex place.
Did I love my limey beer? Duh! Did I love my fajitas, rice and beans? Yes. Did I love the salsa? You bet! Do I wish the chips were different? You bet ;) It was good, but I’m slightly lost on the obsession…
Foxtrot Delivery Market
Foxtrot is a “choice goods” store that offers groceries, gifts, coffee, wine, a place to work or a place to drink. They opened their first brick and mortar outside of the Chicago area in Uptown Dallas on Tuesday and they about broke instagram with the amount of organic buzz spreading about them. While they have a store front they specialize in delivery promising to get from their store to your door in less than an hour.
I met my friend Shelby there on opening day late afternoon. They were offering free cafe drinks and had a frosé happy hour going on. To avoid being up all night on caffeine I went with this kombucha (which I loved) and Shelby got the CBD Lychee Slushy.
Title Boxing Club
I’m trying about every workout in Dallas before committing to anything. I’m also booking any free class or program I can. I’ve been doing two weeks free with Class Pass which led me to Title boxing. I was very hesitant rolling into class at 6am in fear that it would be full of ripped guys with hidden black belts. Luckily I was wrong. The class was small about half girls half guys. It’s been four days and I can still barely lift my arms. The class is only 45 minutes, and goes by fast but is such a great workout. I will be back, especially since they trick you into having to buy $10 wrist wraps.
If you didn’t know, but you probably did, but if you didn’t, now you know that I am still working for The Social Order. They gave me a promotion (whaaaa!!) and the option to work remote from Dallas. To make sure I stayed focused and didn’t go stir crazy in my apartment I have reserved a desk at The Slate.
The Slate is a newer co-working space in the Design District started by two sisters (who I deeply love already). It’s a space for businesses, entrepreneurs and small companies to come set up shop. They are equipped with conference rooms, kitchen, event space, a shop, podcast room, sound stage, offices and desks for days. I’ve only been here four days and have already met so many amazing people doing the coolest things. This photo is of the entryway of the space, but it’s my favorite part! The whole place is decorated perfectly.
Half of my third week will be spent in DC for the 4th of July, but I can’t wait to hit some more Dallas spots this weekend before off to truly my favorite city!
