A chandelier of wineglasses hangs above a stone bar inside Mystic Grape, a cafe and wine bar with a rustic, yet elegant decor "that will remind you of Napa," according to Texas Monthly. A menu of tapas and entrees, such as filet mignon topped with a seafood medley, complement the spot's extensive wine list. Visit on select dates to hear live music, or settle in for a game of chess at tables flanked by comfortable wingback armchairs.
The hum of live performances echoes across The Percolator, where guests meet over mugs of organic coffee and plates of gourmet sandwiches and sushi. Chefs usher in the day with eggs, meat, and vegetarian breakfast wraps before moving on to lunch and dinner to assemble chicken pesto or herbed goat–cheese sandwiches along with seven specialty sushi rolls. Lattes, mochas, and creamy coffee frappés start days or cap off meals, and a selection of beer and wine rinses off incisors. As customers sip and dine, they lounge at the cafe's numerous tabletops beneath local artwork and vibrant murals on the crimson walls. A stage hosts a rotating schedule of live music, poetry slams, and theater nearly every day, offering visitors a welcome reprieve from frustrating evenings of teaching a pet tortoise to roll over.
At Healthy Bite, patrons can retreat to the café for a menu of grilled sandwiches, refreshing salads, and fresh juices. Fluffy slices of ciabatta bread carry bounties such as turkey and Monterey jack cheese, or fresh tomatoes, pesto, and mozzarella. Salads set beds of romaine lettuce or baby spinach for fresh fruits, slivered almonds, and feta cheeses. Meanwhile, fresh juice blends include papaya, orange, and celery, alongside daily soups and fruit smoothies.
When Kipps Cheesesteak first opened in June 2010, owner Kipp wasn't sure if he'd be able to sell the 36 rolls he bought for the day. He shouldn't have worried—he was completely sold out by 11:45 a.m.
It seems that customers couldn't get enough of the cheesesteaks, which were served in classic fashion—rib eye topped with caramelized onions and slathered in Cheez Whiz or provolone—or jazzed up with green chilies, barbecue sauce, or hot sauce. The eatery is still going strong, and in addition to cheesesteaks, serves burgers, hot dogs, creative salads, and housemade cheesecakes.
The signature hot sandwiches and 23 types of frosty beers perch atop Kipps's retro-style bar, which is equipped with several wide-screen TVs broadcasting sports games and only the least-obnoxious car-insurance commercials.
Light streams through a vast Tiffany glass dome and illuminates an elegant dining room with help from glittering chandeliers. This is the first thing most diners notice upon stepping into The Dome Restaurant's dining area, an elegant eatery located within the Camino Real hotel. The kitchen churns out upscale fare that includes grilled prime rib eye served with a spicy red-pepper horseradish chimichurri and mashed potatoes, duck-confit spring rolls, and pan-seared fillets with orange sauce. A luxurious rug sprawls across The Dome Restaurant’s floor, and intimate tables invite diners to linger alongside vaulted, arched windows. Directly beneath the showstopping, ornately carved ceiling, backed stools perform maypole dances around a circular bar, which had its edges filed down by a Brobdingnagian manicurist.
