New Menu: What to Order at State & Allen

State & Allen

At State & Allen, healthy, sustainable food meets impeccable gourmet cooking for a meal you won’t soon forget! Regulars keep coming back for the Dallas drink specials, wine nights, fabulous patio, and scratch kitchen cooking. 


Another big part of eating well? Eating food that’s in season. That’s why State & Allen Kitchen + Bar is committed to changing our menu seasonally. It’s not just about keeping the menu fresh, but it’s about preparing the best that the current season has to offer.


So what’s on the menu now? Here are a few favorites off of our brand new spring and summer menu at State & Allen:


Starters: Crispy Pork Belly Tostadas


A delicious way to start your meal, the crispy pork belly tostadas are topped with southwestern kimchi, peach chipotle jam, crema, and of course, tender slices of pork belly. You’ll love how the spices complement the meat and lend just a touch of heat.


Salad: Heirloom Tomato & Pasta Salad


Summer and pasta salads go hand-in-hand, and State & Allen’s new menu has one that is so filling it really could be an entrée. We start with a six-cheese pasta sacchettini and layer on capicola, walnuts, blue cheese, grilled corn, and finish with a drizzle of chervil-peppercorn vinegarette. So good, it’s like a summertime picnic in your mouth.


Entrée: Grilled Jerk Redfish


State & Allen is known for our impeccable meats, and this redfish is summery, light, and absolutely delicious! The grapefruit salsa verde on top is the perfect pairing for the fish and it’s served with sautéed broccolini and roasted sweet potatoes.


These are just a few of our new spring and summer menu options, perfect for dining al fresco in this beautiful weather! See you this week at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar, the best restaurant in Uptown Dallas!
