A few weeks ago, we did a staycation at The Ritz-Carlton Dallas, so we spent a great deal of time exploring everything around the hotel when we weren’t luxuriating in the spa, our room’s giant soaking tub or the rooftop pool.
Of course, brunch is always on our weekend agenda, so we wandered across the street to a place we went to several times right after they opened, but eventually forgot about because we’re always checking out new spots around town. So when we realized we were only a five-minute walk from Moxie’s, we knew we needed to return.
As soon as we settled into our shaded seat on the patio and our carafe of rosé sangria hit the table, the fond memories of past brunches here. Moxie’s is just plain fun.
The crowd is mostly young and Millennial-skewing, but there were also gays of a certain age (like us) flitting about the dining room and patio. But regardless of how many years each diner has lived on the planet, everyone was having a great time.
Items on the brunch menu skew traditional, from french toast and omelettes to salmon and avocado topped bagels. And for a Canadian-based restaurant, they offer surprisingly good huevos rancheros. Our favorite dish of the day, however was the pancetta and white cheddar benedict. But because we’re weird and order ours with scrambled eggs and hollandaise on the side, it’s not the most exciting photo. So use your imagination! (We promise it tastes every bit as good as what you’re picturing).
Because Moxie’s remains a wildly popular brunch spot in Uptown Dallas, we highly recommend making reservations to ensure a table.
Then let the good times roll.
