The Nodding Donkey

When the garage-style glass doors at The Nodding Donkey's Uptown location roll up into the ceiling, the aroma of American food spills out onto the street and a secluded patio. It's the smell of crispy onions and blue-cheese crumbles combined with a bison burger; the scent of brisket, sweet pickled jalapeños, pickled red onions, goat cheese, and barbecue sauce heating up on a Texican pizza. In the evenings, customers catch whiffs of simple gourmet plates such as beef tenderloin, Scottish salmon, shrimp fettuccine, and braised chicken with mushroom ravioli. As flat-screen TVs beckon the eyes, servers plunk glasses down and pop open bottles to offer more than 30 beers and 16 wines by the glass. They also lead special events such as wine, beer, and whiskey tastings.

Those looking for a more family-oriented dining experience can eat at The Nodding Donkey's second location, situated near SMU. Playing host to a diverse brunch spread every weekend–from chicken and waffles to poached eggs and prosciutto served on an english crumpet–the SMU locale also caters to children with a kids menu of chicken strips, pizza, and fruit.
