Holiday Gift Idea: State & Allen Gift Cards

State & Allen

So here’s something scary: you now have 2 weeks left before Christmas. Yep, 2 weeks to get all the gifts, get them all wrapped, and do all the holiday things that go with it.

 

If you are anything like us, we’re feeling a little anxiety knowing we’ve got just 14 days to get it all done. Let State & Allen help check some gifts off your list, and come in to get a few State & Allen gift cards for those special people on your list. Here’s why you can’t go wrong:

 

#1: One Size is Perfect for All

Yes! Who wouldn’t love free money to go eat at one of the best Uptown Dallas restaurants and grab a few handcrafted drinks?! State & Allen gift cards are perfect for bosses, coworkers, friends, secret santas – whomever!

 

#2: It’s Unique and Thoughtful

And the great thing is that it’s unique. It’s not like you went to the closest big box store and grabbed them a gift card (hey we’ve been there too!), but you’re giving them the gift of a delicious, gourmet meal at a place they may or may not have tried. Now who looks like the best gift giver in all the land?!

 

#3: You Can Order Online

Don’t have time to come into State & Allen to get a gift card? No problem! Just vist our website and order there. You can choose to email the gift card directly to the person, have a gift card emailed to you that you can print out and give to them (maybe in a fancy card?), or you can have us physically mail one to their address. It’s hassle free!

 

#4: It Never Expires

Your money doesn’t go to waste with a State & Allen gift card, because there is no expiration. They can use it the week after Christmas, or save it to use next summer. It doesn’t matter to us. It’s theirs to use whenever they’d like.

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.
