It’s a well-known fact that the appetizers generally set the tone for the meal to come. Some restaurants get a little sloppy with their appetizer menu, but not State & Allen! We offer delicious small bites that are perfect as meal starters, paired with drinks for happy hour, or alone as a small meal. Here are a few fan favorites you’re sure to love the next time you visit us at State & Allen – the best restaurant in Uptown Dallas:
Crispy Pork Belly Tostadas
Start your meal with a little Tex-Mex, as we serve delicious pork tostadas topped with southwestern kimchi, peach chipotle jam, and crema. Fresh and unique, these tostadas will have you craving the next course.
Our Triple Dip is just as it sounds, and always a crowd pleaser. Order a combination of Southwest hummus, spinach artichoke dip, and tomato-feta salsa. It’s served with big bowls of pita and chips so you can dip to your heart’s content.
Cheese & Charcuterie Boards
When it comes to happy hour, one of our favorite food pairings are the cheese and charcuterie boards. The cheese board is great with wine, loaded with artisanal cheeses, candied walnuts, grapes, pickled blueberries, etc. The charcuterie board is great with cocktails; each board is loaded down with savory favorites like cured meats, olives, peach chipotle jam, gherkins, mustard seed, and more.
S&A Chicken Strips
Now here’s a dish that gets ordered regularly as a meal – particularly at lunch time. A traditional favorite, each cut of chicken is marinated, then rolled in our nine herb and spice breading before hitting the fryer, creating the best chicken strips around. Add fries and a glass of craft beer, and you’ve got a full meal.
Start your meal off right with starters at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar! Visit us this week and order one of these – or other favorites from our menu. We can’t wait to see you for lunch, dinner, happy hour, brunch, or late night.
