A couple weeks ago, my husband and I tried Blatt Beer & Table for the first time. It’s located in Preston Hollow Village in Dallas, just off I-75 and Walnut Hill. The village is easy to get in and out of, with free garage parking and a Trader Joe’s as an anchor, for pleasant, easy shopping.
I had been craving chicken and waffles … something I resisted trying until several years ago because it just sounded weird to me. I’m not sure what was wrong with me, because it’s a match made in heaven! At Blatt Beer and Table, they put a unique and tasty twist on the traditional chicken and waffles using a jalapeno cornbread waffle.
This comfort food mashup of sweet and savory includes dixie-fried chicken strips, a jalapeño cornbread waffle, honey-orange butter, black pepper gravy and maple syrup. I couldn’t finish it, so there was no room for dessert, although this was an all-in-one lunch and dessert, so my sweet tooth left satisfied.
I know that taking a photo of your food in a restaurant is popular for a lot of people today … but I sometimes take it to a whole new level. A ridiculous one. It’s not just my food I take photos of. Everyone in my family knows that my phone eats before they do. I apologize to them, especially my husband, although it’s not a real apology — because I keep doing it. 🙂 Wise to my ways, my husband ordered the same thing as me on this visit and dug into his food as soon as his plate hit the table. When I started to object, he smiled, with syrup dripping down his chin and said: “I ordered the same thing you did. You don’t need to photograph mine.” Well played, honey. Well played. 😉
So … stay tuned for info about other dishes. I’ll update this review after we’ve returned. I’m already eyeing some other menu items for a different food mood day: vegan beet hummus, BBQ Brick Chicken, Crispy Skin Salmon or perhaps their Fish Sliders … hmmm ….
Blatt Beer & Table in Dallas is located at 7859 Walnut Hill Ln and offers vegan options, a kids’ menu, happy hours and Saturday and Sunday brunch. The service was attentive and the vibe was fun. We’ll be back!
