Tackle Dallas, Texas, with These Savvy Local Creatives

Key to the City 11/06/2018

 

The Meghani family has been working watches for decades and has been making their pieces in Dallas, Texas, since the early nineties. That means Amir Meghani, who oversees the company’s new line, Breda, with his sisters Shabeena and Neelum, grew up there—and is now part of a tight-knit community of barrier-breaking companies that have put down roots around town. “It drives a lot of the creatives in the city to show that great things can come from an unexpected place,” he says. Here’s where Amir says you’ll find the Breda crew and the city’s other aesthetes when they aren’t making magic happen at their Texas HQs.  

 

Stay

BELMONT HOTEL

“Staying at the Belmont feels far more akin to staying with a friend than at a hotel. Because of the unique architecture, no two rooms are exactly alike.”

 

Eat

MEDDLESOME MOTH

“Located in Dallas’s Design District, Meddlesome Moth is our go-to dinner spot. We recommend starting with the Belgian mussels or any of their stick meats and trying the diver scallops, campari tomato burrata, and housemade hummus. Each plate has a recommended brew from their 40-beer draught list. After dinner, walk down the street and check out the Man With a Glass Heart sculpture.”

CITY HALL BISTRO

“Chef Jeramie Robinson, a rising star in the Dallas food scene, has curated a sophisticated-yet-approachable menu of Southern European-inspired cuisine at this eatery, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Take your pick. Or do all three!”

 

LAS ALMAS ROTAS

“Come for the mezcal. Stay for the tacos.”

 

THE ARMOURY D.E.

“The best cocktails in Dallas. The Mr. Pink and Save the Queen are both light, fruity, and satisfying. Like whiskey? Get the Bonnie & Clyde. Oh, and don’t forget the charred pulpo (octopus)!”

 

Do Things

COMMERCE GOODS + SUPPLY

“Located in the newly renovated Adolphus Hotel, Commerce Goods + Supply is so much more than a hotel gift shop. Get in the Texas spirit and snag yourself one of their amazing custom Stetson hats.”

 

TASCHEN BOOKS

“If you know how great Taschen’s art and design books are, you know how great this shop is.”

 

SET & CO

“Not your average home-goods store. Adam and Jennifer Littke are master curators, filling their space with all the little things you never knew you needed, until now. The layout and beauty of their store alone is well worth the visit.”

 

DALLAS CONTEMPORARY

“Sure you could—and should—go to the Dallas Museum of Art and Nasher Museum of Art while you’re in town, but don’t overlook the Dallas Contemporary. An ever-changing list of exhibitions means there’s always something new to see. Plus, it’s free.”

 

GIANT EYEBALL

“It’s a 30-foot-tall eyeball in the middle of downtown Dallas. Need I say more??”
