Trinity Groves: Devour Dallas' Most Delicious Dining Destination

Nestled at the foot of Dallas' Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge lies Trinity Groves, a dazzling dining enclave known for its chef-driven incubator restaurant concepts.

Along with spectacular views of the city, Trinity Groves offers a wide range of culinary gems to choose from, including its crowning glory– Casa Rubia, an über-popular tapas bar that dishes up modern Spanish and Catalan-inspired specialties.

Those in the mood for a bit of Marrakesh-style glamour will want to head next door to Souk, a lively Moroccan bistro offering hookahs, belly dancing and mouth-watering tagines. There's also Resto Gastro Bistro, a chic dining spot serving creative global fare, and Kitchen LTO, a permanent pop-up that changes chefs, menus and decor every six months.

Craving a burger? You're in luck, Trinity Groves is the new home for Dallas' best hamburger joint, Off-Site Kitchen. It's also where you'll find Sugar Skull Cafe cranking out some of Dallas' best Mexican street tacos. For sushi and ramen connoisseurs, look no further than Sushi Bayashi. And for barbecue, brews and live blues,  Babb Bros BBQ & Blues is the place to go.  

Speaking of brews, LUCK has a selection of over forty local brews on tap and also dishes up beer infused pub grub.  

Whatever you do, make a sweet pit-stop at Kate Weiser Chocolate, where you'll find Kate creating delicious confectionery treats that are (almost) too pretty to eat.
