Henry's Majestic Heats Up Dallas Winter Season With 11 New Cocktails

Henry's Majestic Heats Up Dallas Winter Season With 11 New Cocktails

Henry's Majestic is a fitting name for a tavern with majestic, creative fare and signature cocktails, beer, and wine. This rustic restaurant may be based in a Dallas, a city known for its hot, humid weather, but it seems like the holiday season came a little early to the Lone Star State. As of November 8, Henry's Majestic added 11 new winter cocktails to its menu.

"It can be difficult to create a fall menu because Dallas tends to have mild winters. So, I try to keep the flavors of the season that I remember when I was young and apply them in a way that is still bearable during a warmer climate," Alex Fletcher, the corporate beverage director of Bread Winners, Inc. and Henry's Majestic lead mixologist, said in a press release.

Set to soft open this week, Acre Distilling and Coffee House will feature a unique fusion of a retail and bar concept, distilling and brewing its spirits and coffee on location, as well as serving them for on-premise enjoyment at their in-house bar or for off-premise consumption at their retail store. Acre is the brainchild of two ex-Rahr & Sons brewery employees, Tony Formby, a former partner, and JB Flowers, the former brewer.

Flowers turned from beer to spirits after witnessing a drastic surge in craft breweries opening, but a general stagnation in the local spirits industry. Acre Distilling and Coffee House will make gin, vodka, rum and whiskey, alongside its coffee options. Read More

How Two Unlikely Restaurateurs Launched Veritas: A Dallas Vinopub Success

How Two Unlikely Restaurateurs Launched Veritas: A Dallas Vinopub Success

By Rebecca Combs, Foodable Contributor

Two lawyers and a wine bar – that is the beginning of Veritas in Dallas. Brothers, Brooks and Bradley Anderson opened Veritas about seven years ago. They were both in the law profession but have since (for the most part) given that up to pursue their love of the food and beverage industry.

From Lawyers to Restaurateurs 

It all started at a very young age with their French grandmother – “we used to go over to her house and she would cook these elaborate meals and give us wine at a young age and we were just kind of into the whole thing,” said Bradley. Both brothers went into the law profession and discovered that they enjoyed talking more about food and wine than they did about law. So, once the 2323 Henderson space became available, Brooks and Bradley spoke to the landlord. However, as you can imagine, people were skeptical of a wine bar being opened by two lawyers who had no real “history” in the industry. As Bradley says, “I think they were probably a little hesitant in signing the lease with us because they probably thought we would open and close”.

Hot New Bar: Proof and Pantry

Hot New Bar: Proof and Pantry

By Rebecca Combs, Foodable Contributor

The long awaited Proof + Pantry has finally opened in Dallas and it is sure to live up to everything it promised. Located in the One Arts Plaza in Downtown Dallas, P + P is serving up delicious food and some seriously fancy craft cocktails.

The Man Behind The Concept

You can owe this new Dallas hot spot to liquor mixing master (and James Beard nominated barman), Michael Martensen. Responsible for two other popular places in Dallas (Smyth and The Cedars Social), Martensen definitely knows his way around a bar. His goal for P + P is to bring unity to the Dallas dining scene and the arts community. Being walking distance to many venues, Proof + Pantry is the perfect spot for a pre and post theatre dinner (and of course a cocktail!) According the Michael, the goal is to bring “progressive American fare” and bold flavors to the One Arts Plaza.
