Braindead Brewing

Copy Link

Revisit childhood with Braindead’s take on a classic kid’s dessert just like mom used to make. Warm cookies made-to-order and straight from the oven are paired with house-crafted “chocolate stout milk.” It’s a rustic, no-frills dessert that gratifies without being overly sweet.

Picole Pops

First Picole Pops arrived with boozy pops in Bishop Arts, and now Deep Ellum will welcome a second location this summer. This frozen pop palace is bringing Brazilian-style “filled” creations to Dallas using fresh, gourmet ingredients and all-natural fruits. The selection of alcohol-infused popsicles is plentiful, with something for every palate.

Dude, Sweet Chocolate

Chef Katherine Clapner is crafting gourmet confections using her years of sweet experience in the culinary industry, including pastry gigs at Charlie Trotter’s in Chicago. Luckily for chocolate fans, she’s teamed up with whiskey powerhouse WhistlePig distillery in Vermont to create a sophisticated “grown-up” style of fudge.

Emporium Pies

Can’t go wrong with a good Southern pie shop crafting everything from crust to filling straight from scratch. The aptly named Drunken Nut features a crispy shortbread crust, a brown sugar butter sauce, and Texas pecans. Crunchy, nutty with a bourbon bite to finish, this pie is a winner no matter how it’s sliced.

Whiskey Cake Kitchen & Bar

A pioneer in Dallas’s farm-to-kitchen movement, Whiskey Cake serves up locally-inspired dishes in a relaxed “kick your feet up on the porch” kind of atmosphere. That relaxed attitudes filters into the restaurant’s menu, which includes its famous Whiskey Cake with toffee torte and spiced pecans, topped with a Bourbon anglaise and whipped cream.

rise nº1 Salon de Soufflé

Soft, rich, and light as air – the decadent soufflés of Rise 1 are something to celebrate. Don’t neglect the sweet Grand Marnier soufflé at this French-inspired bistro. Each one is cloud-like in texture with a taste of orange liqueur that’s heavenly.

Terilli's

Patio-dwellers flock to the rooftop bar of this Lower Greenville spot for skyline views, drinks, and live music. Terilli’s is sticking to its Italian roots with a classic tiramisu dessert featuring layers of mascarpone, vanilla ladyfingers, cinnamon, and espresso liqueur.

Kenny's Wood Fired Grill

Copy Link

Dark and romantic with the charm of a classic New York steakhouse, Kenny’s delivers the perfect ambience to share something sweet after dinner. Spring for the bread pudding, crafted using fresh, buttery croissants as a base.    

Blackfriar Pub

Copy Link

Nothing goes down better in an Irish bar than a good whiskey, which is why Blackfriar cut out the middle man and put it straight into dessert. Try the Jameson-infused chocolate brownie with ice cream for a tipsy treat that won’t knock you on your arse.

Eddie V's Prime Seafood

Copy Link

This high-end steakhouse heats things up with an over-the-top Bananas Foster dessert featuring rich butter cake and thick brown sugar sauce topped with bananas and rum that’s flambéed tableside.

Zomato

Devious Desserts

Located inside Deep Ellum’s music-centric, offbeat hangout Wit’s End, Devious Desserts is taking the term “hidden gem” to a whole new level. Pastry chef Meriel Young parked her sweets-forward food truck inside the bar, for good. Enjoy the “Wit’s End,” with butter pecan ice cream in a fresh bacon waffle cone topped with Southern Comfort caramel sauce.

The Oceanaire Seafood Room

Copy Link

While seafood reigns supreme in this stunning Galleria location, their Baked Alaska dessert has been sought out by Dallasites and tourists alike. Splurge on this small mountain of cake and ice cream slathered over with fresh meringue then set ablaze tableside with a healthy pour of Bacardi 151.
