Oh So Tasty: The Second Floor

The Second Floor Bistro-Bar is an upscale bistro and bar concept inside The Westin Galleria Dallas, and was created in partnership with Chef Scott Gottlich and his sommelier wife, Gina Gottlich.  Executive Chef Daniel Tarasevich has created "indulgent European-American cuisine" designed to satisfy any craving. I was invited over this week to sample a few of the new additions to the menu.  I knew it was going to be a great dinner when the first thing that happened was that the servers came out with trays laden with a variety of cocktails, like the Cucumber Sip pictured above. Dishes sampled include those pictured above, Pork Belly Banh Mi Sliders, Smoked Pork Chop and a delicious Strawberry Shortcake with Cinnamon Ice Cream and fresh berries. One of my favorite bites was the Hudson Valley Foie Gras Mousse, served on brioche toast with strawberry compote and pickled rhubarb. Whether looking for an after-work escape, late-night indulgence or evening out at a trendy locale, The Second Floor Bistro-Bar has many mouth-watering dishes like Dock Confit Pot Pie, Short Rib Meatloaf and Piquillo Pimento Cheese—plus the largest Scotch collection in Dallas.

You can visit The Second Floor Bistro-Bar for a delicious dinner or make it a really romantic date-night by staying at the Westin. I recently talked about their new extended check out hours and the wonderful amenities the hotel offers. The hotel even offers a Sip & Savor Dining Package which includes a $100 food and beverage credit you can use in The Second Floor Bisto - Bar.
