What is Maple Landing?

 Maple Landing is a brand new restaurant in the Love Field area, specializing in gourmet burgers, brisket, beer, bourbon, and everything in between.

Burgers include Dallas specialty burgers like the Kimchi Burger with Gochujang Spiced Mayo, the Chili Cheese Burger with brisket chili and pickled jalapenos, and the Sunrise Burger with bacon, egg, and cheese. And on the brisket side, you’ll find brisket prepared lots of ways. We love the Pastrami Brisket Sandwich, loaded with kraut, Maple Landing mustard, Swiss cheese, and more. Want something more traditional? You can always order sliced brisket and sausage, and there is nothing the matter with that. 

 In addition to burgers and brisket, Maple Landing also specializes in some pretty killer salads and serves wonderful appetizers and sides to accompany your meal.


What about Dallas Drink Specials?

 Maple Landing is your place for Dallas Happy Hour specials! Get a great deal on your favorite bourbon, wells, craft beers, wine, and more. Ask your server for details and current specials. Happy hour is from 4-7pm Monday-Friday, and all day Saturday & Sunday. 


Grand Opening: Maple Landing in Dallas, Texas!

 Maple Landing is now open and we hope you’ll help us welcome our new sister restaurant! Conveniently located near Love Field, it’s the perfect stop before taking off on a flight or for grabbing a quick lunch during your lunch break.

Spring Patio Weather: What to Order Now

State & Allen

State & Allen has the best patio in Uptown Dallas, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine or people watching with friends. So when spring patio weather in Dallas starts to roll in, we can’t help but get an extra spring in our step. (pun intended.)

state and allen best patio dallas texas.jpg


Anyway, on a beautiful weekend like this when the patio is calling your name, head to State & Allen and enjoy one of these deliciously curated dishes – each made with gourmet ingredients and inspired by the flavors of the season:


Appetizers: Charcuterie Board

Order your favorite glass of wine or draft beer and pair it with State & Allen’s delicious Charcuterie Board, prepared with artisanal cured meats, a variety of olives, State & Allen mustard, gherkins, sweet chili jam, and any other delicacies the chef might want to throw on that day. It’s the perfect accompaniment for Dallas happy hour or pre-dinner drinks.


Sandwiches: S&A Muffuletta

When it comes to sandwiches, lately we’ve been partial to the S&A Muffuletta – our take on the New Orleans classic. Each bite is chock full of cured meats including salami, capicola, and pepperoni, provolone cheese, and instead of the traditional olive spread, a sun-dried tomato tapenade. Yum.


Entrees: Filet Mignon

We’ve kind of obsessed with the filet mignon because A) it’s spectacular and B) it comes with two of our favorites: homemade three cheese mac and cheese and roasted vegetables. What’s not to love?! If you’re looking for the perfect entrée to celebrate the simple things in life, this is it.


Dessert: Flourless Chocolate Cake

Save room for dessert because you chocoholics are in for a treat! Our rich, flourless chocolate cake is drizzled in berry sauce and berries and served with a side of vanilla ice cream.


So on a beautiful Dallas evening, remember State & Allen is the place for dining al fresco! There’s no question we’re the best patio in Uptown Dallas

Fridays are for Drink Specials: Spend Black Friday with State & Allen!

State & Allen

Skip the crowds this upcoming Black Friday and plan to spend the day with State & Allen Kitchen + Bar! Even if you are planning to get out early and bargain hunt, join us afterwards because we’ll be having our own version of Black Friday with delicious Friday drink specials!


Fridays at State & Allen are for the $3 Triple Threat – one of the best drink specials in Dallas!


What is the Triple Threat?


The Triple Threat isn’t a drink exactly, but any combination of drinks you can think of that include New Amsterdam Vodka, Jim Beam Whiskey, or Camerena Tequila. Keep in mind, this is not a drink made with all three (gross!), but refers to any mixed drink that uses vodka, whiskey, or tequila. So order a margarita, a whiskey & coke, or vodka tonic. All are just $3 – all day Friday!


Hand-picked Spirits


Periodically, State & Allen rotates the spirits included in our Triple Threat drink special, using only the best spirits that are hand-picked by experts on our staff. Here’s a closer look at our current offerings:


New Amsterdam Vodka

If one word describes this vodka, then “smooth” is it! Whether you want to drink this vodka on the rocks or mix it with something to create the perfect cocktail, New Amsterdam vodka goes down smooth every time. New Amsterdam credits its premium process of distilling the vodka 5 times and then filtering it 3 times to create the most delicious vodka around.


Jim Beam Whiskey

The old favorite you can’t get enough of, Jim Beam is a staple around here. Did you know every drop of Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey is aged twice as long as the law requires? It’s details like this that give it the richness of flavor that has been enjoyed for decades.


Camerena Tequila

The mark of great tequila is in the blue agave, and you can guarantee Camerena is 100% pure blue agave, sourced from the Camerena family farms outside Jalisco, Mexico. The result – smooth, delicious tequila - perfect when served on the rocks or mixed in a margarita. Just be sure to order a little Tex-Mex to go with it!

Brewery Spotlight: Tupps Brewery

State & Allen

State & Allen Kitchen + Bar recently revamped our beers on tap and we added a couple from a local Dallas-Fort Worth area brewery: Tupps Brewery.


Tupps Brewery – located in McKinney, Texas - hit the scene in 2015 and they won us over with their nod to rustic, historic Texas (the brewery is located adjacent to an old cotton mill after all), all while using state-of-the-art techniques to create some really great beer. Not to mention, State & Allen loves supporting local Dallas craft breweries. Here is Tupps recipe for success:


Step 1: Start with the Taste

When creating craft beer at Tupps Brewery, the founders – Keith Lewis and Tupper Patnode – turn to their tastebuds first. A blend of creativity, smell, and taste goes into deciding whether it makes the cut, and if it does, it moves on to Step 2.


Step 2: Refine with Technology

Once the beer tastes good and everyone is pleased with the product, Tupps Brewery uses its state-of-the-art equipment to add quality control and consistency to each batch.


Step 3: Taste the Beer Again

At the end of the day, it’s about the taste. Tupps goes back and tries the beer again, ensuring each batch is delicious.


So What’s on Tap at State & Allen?

Great question! 2 of our favorites from Tupps Brewery are currently featured on tap at State & Allen:


·      TUPPS Day Off: We love this beer because it’s easy to drink any day of the week! Light, refreshing… sip it on the patio with friends at State & Allen and you won’t be disappointed!

·      Raspberry Shade: The perfect seasonal beer for summer, TUPPS Raspberry Shade blends the taste of sweet summer berries into the classic wheat beer, TUPPS Texas Shade. It will soon be your summer go-to beer!


Join us at State & Allen this week to enjoy the best craft beer on tap and delicious drink specials in Dallas everyday of the week!

Cocktails that Scream Summer - State & Allen

With summer just weeks away, who isn’t dreaming of vacations in the Caribbean, concerts at dusk, and long days at the lake?!

Handcrafted with only the finest liquors, State & Allen offers a variety of options infused with exotic flavors. Check out a few of our summertime favorites!


·      Summertime in the City: Welp. The name pretty much says it all. And this isn’t your typical summer beer type drink either. Branch out and give this tasty cocktail a try, made with Basil Haydens Bourbon, a splash of Amaro Lucano, St. Germaine, and lemon bitters. If you like whiskey with a fresh twist, this one’s for you!

·      Fresh & Spicy: We are really digging the trend toward the “margarita with a twist.” Order some Tex Mex, pass on the margarita, and order the “Fresh & Spicy” instead. It’s a little Herradura tequila mixed with lime juice, cilantro, Cointreau, and then a little Ancho Reyes to kick it up a notch.

·      Born on the 4th of July: Watermelon is the essence of a summer picnic, and the centerpiece of this refreshing drink. Pair American Revolution vodka, watermelon syrup, lime juice, basil, and a little soda, and you’ve got the tastes of summer in a glass.

·      Caribbean Star: If you can’t get to the beach, why not just close your eyes and pretend with this tropical cocktail. Sweet and simple, it’s coconut rum, Pernod, and peach nectar all in one delicious drink.

Brewery Spotlight: Cedar Creek Brewery

State & Allen

If you are ever looking for a weekend roadtrip – just a short drive from Dallas, Texas – then consider an easy drive out to Cedar Creek Brewery in Seven Points, Texas.


Cedar Creek Brewery was founded in 2010 by a man in search of the perfect craft beer. Jim Elliott had recently moved to the area just southeast of Dallas and had the hardest time finding good, quality Texas craft beer. His solution? Brew some himself!


With a little hard work and ingenuity, Cedar Creek Brewery was born. Elliott brought on master brewer Damon Lewis, and between the two of them, the dream came to life. Using old dairy equipment, Cedar Creek began brewing amazing beer on a shoestring budget. What started as a very small operation in 2010 has blossomed in the last 5 years, gaining national recognition at the Great American Beer Festival, expanded into a larger operation, added a taproom for visitors, and so much more. 


If you drive out to Seven Points, you’ll enjoy the taproom complete with all the signature, small batch brews. And while you’re there, given the Plowboys Café a try, the in-house eatery that’s big on flavor and small town charm. Want to take some beer for the road? You’ll notice that all the beer is “bottled” in cans – not glass bottles. Cedar Creek does this to ensure quality first and foremost. Light and oxygen have a harder time entering the aluminum can than it does glass. Also, it’s more environmentally friendly and oh-so-much more portable for a trip to the lake.


State & Allen loves supporting this brewery because it’s got the “American Dream” written all over it! Not to mention, the beer is pretty darn good. One of our favorites is the Dankosaurus IPA – with hop flavors of citrus and pine and a strong malt backbone - and it’s now available on tap at State & Allen! Try Cedar Creek Brewery and other Dallas craft beers on tap at State & Allen. You never know what new beer you’ll fall in love with!
