Our Texas Pride: Locally Crafted Spirits at State & Allen

State & Allen

Texas pride never dies.

 

Being from the Lone Star State, we’re proud to serve a huge selection of craft beer and spirits crafted right here in the great state of Texas. While our selection is vast, don’t be fooled into thinking we just offer anything on our menu. Each spirit is carefully selected for its unique flavor and quality finish.

 

So what Texas spirits are on our menu? Here are a few of our favorites, available now at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar:

 

·     Henderson Whiskey: Produced right here in Dallas, Henderson Whiskey is simply great whiskey. No need to jazz it up- order it neat and you’ll love the vanilla and cinnamon undertones. It’s perfect for someone who thinks they don’t enjoy whiskey. Trust us – try this one and it will change your mind!

·     Witherspoon Bourbon: Visit the Witherspoon Distillery in Lewisville, TX on a weekend and you’ll not only find great bourbon, but a great atmosphere too! We love this bourbon’s rich American taste. It’s smooth and 100 proof (that’s 50% alc. by volume people).

·     Tito’s Texas Vodka: Tito’s has become one of our favorites for mixing with just about anything. (Moscow Mule’s anyone?!) This delicious vodka is micro-distilled in Austin, Texas in old-fashioned pot stills. It’s quality you can taste.

·     Herman Marshall Rye: The only Texas Rye, Herman Marshall is pretty darn good stuff. While we normally recommend serving whiskey neat, trust us and try this one with an ice cube. It opens up the flavor of the rye, bringing out hints of vanilla.

 

Anyone else thirsty at this point?! Join us this week at State & Allen to enjoy Texas’ finest spirits! Conveniently located at the corner of State St. and Allen St. in Uptown Dallas, we’re open for lunch, dinner, Dallas happy hour, and late night drinks.

Why Does State & Allen Serve Free Range Eggs?

State & Allen

If you join us at State & Allen for our weekend brunch in Dallas, you’ll notice that our menu specifically states that all of our eggs are free range. Some might wonder why this matters, because, an egg is an egg right?

 

At State & Allen we believe in clean eating and producing the freshest, highest quality meals around. Our meals are prepared fresh in our scratch kitchen, with simple cooking methods that let the natural flavors shine through. In our efforts to select the best quality foods for our customers, we’ve chosen free range eggs, and here are a few reasons why:

 

1.  Higher Nutritional Content

 

While all eggs are considered complete proteins and are abundant in vitamins and minerals, free range eggs have even higher quantities of nutrients than their conventional counterparts. This is because what goes into the chicken matters. And if a chicken is happy and able to go out and roam, selecting its own food in the process, it produces better quality eggs.  Studies have shown free range eggs to have more Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin D and other nutrients than conventional eggs.

 

2.  Less Saturated Fat & Cholesterol

 

One recent study shows that free range eggs contain 1/3 less cholesterol and ¼ less saturated fat than conventional eggs! While cholesterol levels in eggs shouldn’t be alarming, it’s always nice to know that you can get a healthier, more nutrient egg with less of the stuff you don’t want.

 

3.  More Omega-3s

 

Omega-3 fatty acids are important to our body because our body needs them for heart health and so much more, but we can’t produce them ourselves. Studies show Omega-3s to be 2-4 times higher in free range eggs.

 

Join us for Dallas brunch this weekend at State & Allen, where you’ll be served nothing but the best: free range eggs!

Brewery Spotlight: Alamo Beer Company

State & Allen

This just in – State & Allen Kitchen + Bar in Dallas, Texas is now serving Alamo Beer Company’s Alamo Amber Lager. It’s a delicious light bodied wheat beer you’ve just got to try, brewed right here in the great state of Texas!

 

Wait…what’s that? You’ve never heard of Alamo Beer? Let State & Allen give you the backstory!

 

A Legend in the Making

 

While Alamo Beer Company is relatively new to the market, Alamo beer itself dates back to the late 1880s. At the time, Lone Star Beer Company in San Antonio, Texas was the brewery of choice in the Texas Hill Country and they brewed an Alamo beer. Well along came the prohibition, and with it, the beer supply dried up. After the prohibition, beer started flowing again, but the Alamo branded beer never returned. That is until Eugene Simor brought it back.

 

In the 1990s, Simor moved to San Antonio and looked high and low for his favorite Texas beer. He loved Frio, Lone Star, and Yellow Rose – all brewed in San Antonio – but when they all closed, an idea came to mind. He decided to make his own beer and call it Alamo. Simor partnered with Real Ale Brewing to create a beer all his own. Distribution started small (he actually delivered it from the back of his wife’s minivan!), then grew to being carried to San Antonio’s HEB stores, and then to being distributed throughout the state of Texas by Ben E. Keith.

 

State & Allen Loves Alamo Beer Company!

 

State & Allen loves supporting local Texas breweries and we are proud to start carrying the Alamo Amber Lager on tap. As a traditional Vienna style lager, it’s light, it’s smooth, and oh so easy to drink.

5 Little Known Facts about Grey Goose Vodka - State & Allen

State & Allen

Grey Goose vodka is one of our favorite spirits here at State & Allen. We like it so much that we even dedicated an entire cocktail menu to Grey Goose mixology, a menu our bartenders carefully curated to enhance the flavors in Grey Goose itself.

 

In the world of premium vodka, Grey Goose is known as ultra-premium. But do you know much more than that? Let State & Allen fill you in on a few secrets of the Grey Goose brand. (Feel free to use this knowledge to impress your friends.)

 

1.  100% Produced in France – for Americans

 

Grey Goose has only been on the market since 1997 when an American named Sidney Frank had an idea for a high-end vodka brand. He wanted Americans to see his vodka as ultra-premium; therefore, he set up all operations for the brand in France – a place Americans see as affluent and luxurious. To this day, each and every bottle of Grey Goose is produced in France, and so are all of the ingredients and packaging.

 

2.  French Maitre de Chai, Francois Thibault, Runs the Show

 

Don’t be fooled. Grey Goose isn’t a faux French company. The cellar master, Francois Thibault, earned his stripes making Cognac in France. When he came on board at Grey Goose, he designed the entire production process, all done the French way for authenticity you can taste.

 

3.  All the Grey Goose in the World is Produced by 20 People

 

The operation in La Vallee de l’Oise is small, with about 20 employees total! All the better for tasting, as each batch of Grey Goose is taste tested before it ever leaves the facility. Employees take turns in the tasting room, giving their seal of approval. Sample premium vodka all day? Where do we sign up?!

 

4.  Wheat Based for a Smoother Texture

 

There are many different fermented materials that could be used in vodka – potatoes, barley, rye, grapes, etc. Grey Goose chooses to use wheat sourced from France’s breadbasket region. The wheat sown is soft winter wheat, and Grey Goose argues that their vodka has a softer, smoother texture given the use of wheat vs. other fermented grains.

 

5.  No Artificial Flavors

 

Did you know that even the flavored Grey Goose vodkas use real fruit juice to create the flavors? Not to mention, all of that fruit – except the oranges from Florida – come from France. Would you expect anything less?

 

All this talk of Grey Goose vodka has us in the mood for a cocktail! Join us this week at State & Allen - the best bar in Uptown Dallas - and ask for our Grey Goose Mixology menu!

Origins of the Bloody Mary - State & Allen

State & Allen

It's October. The month of Halloween. And in honor of Halloween, let's talk about the goriest cocktail of all: the Bloody Mary.

You'll be hard pressed to find someone who isn't familiar with the Bloody Mary cocktail, but where did it originate? How did it get its name? Let State & Allen share a few fun facts on the Bloody Mary that we were able to dig up:

 

Where did the Bloody Mary Originate?

 Let’s just get one thing straight right off the bat: the origins of the Bloody Mary are as convoluted as the drink itself. Many have laid claim to the Bloody Mary over the years, but most believe it was first concocted at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris, France. (Yep, an American actually had a New York bar dismantled and rebuilt in Paris during Prohibition times. Props to him.) Bartender Pete Petriot began experimenting with vodka, tomato juice, and a plethora of spices, and the Bloody Mary was born. In 1933, Petriot moved to New York to be the head bartender at the St. Regis’s King Cole Bar in New York, and the drink continued to grow in popularity in the United States.

bloody mary history state allen dallas

 

Where did it get it’s name?

 When Petriot originally created the drink, it was called the Bucket of Blood. Appetizing right?! In search of a more appealing name, Patriot renamed the drink the Red Snapper upon arrival at the St. Regis's bar. And as for the name Bloody Mary...there are conflicting reports. Most agree the name has ties to Queen Mary of England, known for her gruesome executions and most likely came about as the drink spread through Europe.

 

Can a Bloody Mary cure a Hangover?

 Since its origins, it’s been hailed a hangover cure. While there is little research to support this, it’s still worth a shot, right?! You can find the only Bloody Mary Bar in Uptown Dallas at State & Allen each weekend during our brunch hours – 10am-2pm. We’ll have all the fixins; you create the drink just as you like it!

 

Wow your friends with a little Bloody Mary trivia, and come see us at State & Allen for Bloodys, mimosas, and the best brunch in Dallas!

Olympic Sized Deals at State & Allen

State & Allen

Mark your calendars because Friday, August 5, the 2016 Summer Olympic Games will begin!

 

Opening ceremonies will air at 7pm, so grab some friends and head over to State & Allen Kitchen + Bar for Uptown's Olympic Watch Party and get some Olympic Sized Deals including food specials, drink specials, and more.

 

Olympic Meal Deal

From August 5-August 16, we’ll have an extra special menu item going. For just $20.16 (like what we did there?!) you can get a delicious State & Allen premium burger, tall glass of ice cold beer – your choice, and a shot of whatever suits your fancy.

 

If you haven’t tried a Dallas burger at State & Allen before, you are in for a real treat. We’d call our burgers some of the best burgers in Dallas. Our patties are top quality, utilizing a signature blend of tender brisket, veal, and ground chuck. Get the burger made to order with whatever combination of toppings you’d like. A few of the favorites? Give a Caprese Burger a try, topped with fresh tomatoes, spinach, mozzarella, and basic pesto, then drizzled with a balsalmic reduction and servered on ciabatta. It’s awesome.

 

We do have one other new burger that is worth pointing out: the Sweet Heat Burger. The patty is a little different – using a blend of premium Wagyu beef and Berkshire pork – and then the burger is finished off with peppered bacon, brie, candied jalapenos, and served on a brioche bun. Totally different and delicious.
