Now Open: Maple Landing – Brand New Dallas Restaurant 

State & Allen

State & Allen is proud to announce we’ve got another baby sister… Maple Landing is here!


maple landing dallas texas new restaurant 2019

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. Founded by Jonathan Calabrese and Rhett Dukes (the same founders of State & Allen Kitchen + Bar), you can expect the same quality and scratch kitchen gourmet cooking that you’ve come to love here at State & Allen. 

 

What’s on the Menu at Maple Landing?

 Maple Landing specializes in burgers and brisket, but this isn’t your typical burger joint. 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.

Executive Chef Rhett Dukes has been on the Dallas culinary scene for quite some time now, specializing in taking old favorites and infusing them with new flavors. He takes a scratch kitchen approach to cooking, creating dishes with the highest quality, using fresh, local ingredients whenever possible. Check out a few of the new offerings he’s prepared, available at State & Allen NOW!

 

Bistro Favorites

 

Our bistro favorites are a collection of farm-to-table, scratch kitchen specialties sure to delight even the pickiest eater. Bistro favorites are meant to be entrees, perfect for a dinner out with friends or a date night in Dallas.

On the bistro menu, may we recommend the brand new Crab Stuffed Manicotti, drizzled in a vodka sauce and served with asparagus, corn, and mozzarella toast. Or maybe a Berkshire Pork Tenderloin? Juicy tenderloin is wrapped in bacon and covered in a warm cider glaze, served alongside fingerling potatoes and an arugula salad. Either one is sure to please.

 

Burgers

 

Burgers are a specialty around here, and we don’t take the term lightly. At State & Allen, you won’t find an average burger. How about giving the Sweet Heat Burger a try instead? The secret is in the patty, made from a special blend of Waygu beef and Berkshire Tenderloin. Peppery bacon, brie, and candied jalapenos top this burger masterpiece.

 

Sandwiches

 

Want to go meatless? Give the Garden Veggie Pita a try. You’ll find it loaded with avocado, greens, heirloom tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, parsley, and a little Oaxaca cheese. Or there is the new, hearty Steak Sandwich, chock full of sliced steak, sautéed onions, pickles, melted Swiss cheese, homemade kamikaze sauce, and then heaped high on a tasty ciabatta bun.

 

Are you hungry yet?! Try these and other delicious NEW menu offerings at State & Allen today! Join us for lunch, dinner, weekend brunch, or Dallas happy hour!

Enjoy a Gourmet Sandwich at State & Allen

State & Allen

Sandwich is really a loose term here.

 

The word sandwich conjures of thoughts of those school lunches your mom packed, with stale bread and traditional peanut butter and jelly. Every. Single. Day. (We’re not bitter or anything.) But I digress…

 

Sandwiches at State & Allen are SO much better, SO much more flavorful and delicious, and SO much more healthy. With everything from a more traditional turkey club to a delectable blackened fish sandwich, State & Allen Kitchen + Bar has something for everyone.

 

Here are a few of our recommended favorites:

 

·      Summer Sandwich: This delightful vegetarian gem is just what the doctor ordered when you want something light and flavorful. Loaded with fresh green tomatoes, charred radicchio, squash blossom, Shiso cress salad, mozzarella, and sun-dried tomato aioli all served on rustic Italian bread, it’s sure to impress.

·      Blackened Fish Sandwich: Fresh fish is blackened to perfection and then served on your choice of brioche bun or tortilla taco style, then loaded with red tartar and ale slaw. Fresh and delicious!

·      Buffalo Chicken Sandwich: Craving wings? Give the Buffalo Chicken Sandwich a try. State & Allen in Dallas, TX does it right, tossing crispy chicken breast in sweet cayenne pepper sauce, then serving on a brioche bun with delightful house blue cheese dressing on the side.

·      Smoked Turkey Club: State & Allen’s take on the traditional favorite involves delectable smoked turkey layered with bacon, avocado, swiss cheese, and cranberry mayo.

 

Each sandwich on the menu is served with a choice of side: French fries, potato salad, Caesar salad, side salad, fruit, or cup of soup.

 

Hungry yet? Join us this week for lunch or dinner at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar and enjoy one of our amazing sandwiches. We look forward to serving you at our neighborhood restaurant and bar.

Craft Brew Spotlight: Audacity Brew House

State & Allen

If you’ve looked at State & Allen’s TapHunter site recently, then you’ve noticed a new beer on tap. A delicious, German beer called Repercussion from a little brewery in Denton, Texas called Audacity Brew House. State & Allen loves supporting our local breweries, and Audacity Brew House is one of our new favorites.

Scott Lindsey had a dream. A dream to bring something big and new to Denton. Something audacious.

He saw a gap in the craft brew market and jumped in with two feet, founding Audacity Brew House in 2013. The mission statement is simple and two-fold:

1.     Quality: Lindsey’s top priority is to create the highest quality craft beer around. Bringing in expert brewmaster Doug Smith was a big part of that vision, bringing with him years of experience in professional brewing and fermentation from all around the United States. If there is one thing you will get with Audacity, it’s delicious, high quality beer.

2.     Community: Being a local Denton guy and UNT graduate, Lindsey wanted to give back to the community, so much so that he’s made it a central part of his company mission statement. Audacity Brew House gives back to the community by participating in Serve Denton, Health Services of North Texas, and the Mayors Day of Concern for the Hungry, just to name a few.

The result is audacious beer.

If you’re ever up for a roadtrip to Denton, Texas, you can visit the brew house, complete with a tap room perfect for hanging out, playing a few board games, sitting on the patio on a nice Fall night, and just having a beer that you can’t get anywhere else. Brewery tours are available throughout the week as well.

If you can’t get up to Denton, then you know that your favorite Dallas neighborhood restaurant and bar now has Audacity’s Repercussion on tap! Join us this week for a glass of Dallas craft beer and an amazing dinner at State & Allen Kitchen + Bar!
