Dallas’ Newest Hotspot is One Cool Honor Bar: This California Restaurant Import Offers an Intimate Escape

Last month, beneath white lights sparkling throughout the canopied oak trees of Dallas’ Highland Park Village, we cozied up at the newly opened restaurant Honor Bar, where a seat by the patio fireplace was the perfect spot for a nightcap. It was one of the first cold snaps of the season, but the fire’s heat — and glasses of pinot noir — kept us warm.

Tucked between Rag & Bone and Market, this location is the first outside California but offers much of the same classic American fare served at its Beverly Hills and Montecitoincarnations: Ahi tuna in shiitake ponzu sauce, the juicy Honor Burger, and cult favorite Ding’s Crispy Chicken sandwich (buttermilk fried chicken topped with spicy coleslaw, a thick tomato slice, and Swiss cheese), and the beautifully made gin martinis and the Jackrabbit (tequila, Campari, grapefruit juice, mint).

Honor Bar is a concept from Hillstone Restaurant Group, which also operates Dallas hot spots R+D Kitchen and Hillstone. With intimate booths, exposed wood ceiling beams, and gray-stone walls, Honor Bar’s cabin-chic environs are an intimate den where lunch and dinner conversations swirl among dapper businessmen, Highland Park socialites, and shoppers fresh from a spree at Hermès.
