Top 3 Eating Spots In Design District
The menu features around sixteen burgers with toppings that run the gamut from candied bacon and grilled peaches to brisket chili, corn chips and fried eggs. Be sure to order one of the crazy cocktails offered here, like the one made with moonshine and tang. Though the place is always bustling, diners can still find plenty of spots to hunker down with their burgers: either inside at communal tables or in a beer garden that has a prime view of the Trinity Strand Trail.
The district started becoming known as foodie destination in 2010 when this popular restaurant came on the market. The handsomely decked out space, located in a former tile showroom, features floors made from a hodgepodge of tile samples (leftover from its previous occupant) as well as a triage of stained glass windows, depicting Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, and Elvis–that feature prominently on the back wall. In addition to the massive, and we mean massive– selection of beer, the Moth also serves wine and craft cocktails.
This contemporary Mexican restaurant, by the same folks behind Oak and Pakpao Thai, eschews regular Tex-Mex standards in favor of showcasing Mexico’s intriguing regional cuisine. El Bolero, which refers to Mexico’s omnipresent street-side shoe shiners, aims to take diners on a South of the Border journey– not only through its cuisine, but also with its decor, which includes custom carved wooden doors, hand-crafted mosaic walls and other Latin-inspired design elements throughout.
