Toulouse Dallas

This weekend I was treated to an evening away from the kids and dinner in Dallas. My husband and I thought and thought about where we might like to go being that we don't get to do date nights very often. We settled on Toulouse. One of our favorite Dallas restaurants.

We almost went with a steak/seafood place. Dallas is full of good ones. Some we have tried and some we haven't, but our favorite is Del Frisco's and we were not in that part of town. We figured we would save a good steak night for a night we could go there. We also thought, well we are in Dallas..let's go somewhere fancy schmancy..... Somewhere that is up and coming with a hot new chef or something, but in our minds...those places are usually over-priced and the menus a bit strange for our taste. So we decided on Toulouse because it is one of our favorites and (there are about 10 things on the menu that we just LOVE!)

So this is what we had and highly recommend.

Mussels Provencale
French Onion Soup Gratinee
(yes, it has lots of cheese on it!)

Main Course:
Filet Au Poivre with Frites

Beignets & coffee

Other items we have either tried and recommend from the past, or want to try are:
The Mussels Mariniere
The Lobster Bisque
Macaroni & Cheese
Lobster and Rock Shrimp Risotto
Sweet Potato Gnocchi

If you ever find yourself in the Knox/Henderson part of Dallas for lunch or dinner, I highly recommend this place. It has a lovely atmosphere and even has a little covered patio. Makes you feel sort of like you are at a Paris cafe. We had such a nice evening to sit outside and it was perfect. We felt like we had made the perfect choice!
