The Design District is known for its fantastic galleries and up-and-coming entertainment options (the Bishop Arts Cidercade, a mix of ciderade and old-school arcade, is our top pick for this summer!) and it's making a statement when it comes to food. Here's three options to check out while you're out and about in the district this spring and summer.  


Sassetta: For pizza and pasta

Best for: Small groups, Italian food lovers

What to order: Start with the meatballs and whipped ricotta as appetizers; everyone at the table will thank you. For more creative options, try the shrimp spaghetti or oyster mushroom pizza. Both come with portion sizes that will leave you more than satisfied.


Wheelhouse: For dinner and drinks before a night out

Best for: A laidback vibe or just-got-off-the-plane drinks

What to order: Take advantage of the gastropub vibe and start with the Peticolas Golden Opportunity (brewed just down the road in the Design District!) and housemade sausages, accompanied with spicy beer mustard and braised cabbage. Their patio and open-air bar is perfect for catching a Rangers game on TV.


Go Go: For lunch on the run

Best for: A quick snack as you're exploring the neighborhood

What to order: This grab-and-go-spot won't open until later this year, but expect baked goods, coffees and quick meals – perfect for when you need to head back out on your Dallas adventure.
