Last month theÂ Southern California-based Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar planted a new home in Euless at Glade Parks on 2521 State Highway 121. Right in the middle of DFW, the midcities often is full of big chains and fast casual, but not anymore! You’ll find craft beer, unique desserts and even sangria flights at this spot that caters not just to your taste buds, but Fido’s too.
Here we a few of our favorites from a menu preview attended by local food writers and the very personable and down-to-Earth CEO of Lazy Dog, Chris Simms.
Executive Chef Gabriel (Gabe) Caliendo elevates classic all-American dishes, blending nostalgia with nuance, while also introducing diners to new flavors and seasonal ingredients. The menu features made-from-scratch iconic items like the Campfire Pot Roast; insta-favorites like the BBQ Bison Meatloaf wrapped in smoked bacon; seasonally-inspired dishes like the Slow-Braised Lamb Shank and the Simms Family Sâ€™more; shareable items like the Hatch Chile + Bacon Mac Nâ€™ Cheese; low-calorie options like the Lemon-Caper Chicken Pasta and the Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna; as well as delectable desserts like the Butter Cake â€“ which won â€˜Best Dessertâ€™ at Taste Addisonâ€™s 2016 Taste Competition. A gluten-sensitive menu is also available. Prices range from $8.75 to $25.95.
To complement the scratch-kitchen dishes, diners can choose from handcrafted cocktails like the Coconut Mojito or the Mango Chile Margarita, as well as a thoughtful selection of craft beers from local breweries like Revolver Brewing and Deep Ellum Brewing Co. House beers are also available, which are brewed in collaboration with Golden Road Brewing in California.
Lazy Dog Restaurant & Barâ€™s 8,060 square-foot interiors feel like a Rocky Mountain Wyoming escape, featuring grand lodge-inspired furnishings such as cozy fireplaces, ledge stone, a chandelier crafted from Aspen logs, as well as artwork reminiscent of the Cowboy State. Additionally, a 1,300 square-foot dog-friendly patio will offer a dog menu, featuring grilled meats and brown rice. Multiple flat screen TVs will be installed throughout the bar and patio areas for guests to cheer on their favorite sports teams. The restaurantâ€™s interior will accommodate 252 guests, while the outdoor patio will seat 68.
Giving back to its communities is cornerstone to the Lazy Dog brand, with a focus on childrenâ€™s education. As such, all funds raised during private mock-run events prior to the opening will benefit 6 Stonesâ€™ Operation Back 2 School Program.
Lazy Dog is open daily for lunch and dinner, as well as for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays. A special lunch menu will be available daily until 4:00 p.m.; and Happiest Hours will be available Monday â€“ Friday from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Sunday â€“ Thursday from 9:00 p.m. to close.
