If you haven’t been to Deep Ellum’s newest concept yet, you’ll want to check out Bottled Blonde. The spacious 10,000 square-foot location is a great spot for you and your friends to grab dinner or to check out the picture-perfect skyline view from the rooftop bar. With over 60 HDTVs and 20-foot projection screens, it’s also a great place to watch your favorite sports teams.

Bottled Blonde has the feel of an open-air German bier garden and serves contemporary Italian food with an extensive list of craft beers and cocktails.

Food

Bottled Blonde serves a scratch menu using quality ingredients, sourced locally when possible. All items are made in-house, so the pastas, pizzas, sauces, salad dressings and more are all fresh! The menu features many shareable appetizers, their signature brick oven pizzas, pasta dishes, sandwiches and salads.

The antipasti platter has a generous selection of meats and cheeses served with olives, nuts, peppers, flatbread and a tomato jam that perfectly complements the platter. This is a great appetizer to share with friends!

 

The homemade meatballs in the Polpetti appetizer are a delicious blend of veal, beef and pork, simmered in a marinara sauce, topped with basil and served with bread.

 

Bottled Blonde is best known for their gourmet, brick oven pizzas. So you know you gotta order one when you come here! Choose from 10 different pizzas, including their featured pizza of the month. I sampled the Salsiccia pizza, which comes topped with housemade Italian sausage, pickled red onions and fresh mozzarella cheese. Their pizzas pair well with one of their salads with homemade dressing. (It’s all about balance, right??)

 

Cocktails

Bottled Blonde features an extensive drink menu, offering over 40 local and craft beers, 15 craft cocktails, and a selection of wines. One of their notable drinks is the Adult Capri-Sunday, a specialty cocktail packaged in a bottled blonde pouch made with vodka and fresh fruit juices. It’s a great drink to sip on while on the Bottled Blonde patio for Sunday Funday! 

 

Also, all of their craft cocktails have a refreshing twist using fresh fruit juices, purees and muddled flavors. The Flower Child Mule (pictured below on the right) is made with Effen cucumber vodka, muddled cucumber, fresh mint leaf, passion fruit, fresh lemon juice and ginger beer. The Hotsy-Totsy (left) is made with New Amsterdam gin, fresh strawberry, muddled mint leaves, agave nectar and ginger beer. Both are delightfully refreshing!

 

 

Bottled Blonde has great weekly specials with happy hour running Monday-Friday from 3-7 p.m. including half-price pizzas until 6 p.m. Sounds like a good deal to us!

The eatery is located at 505 N Good Latimer Expy, Dallas, TX 75204.
