Wine Pairings for your Thanksgiving Dinner

State & Allen

Is your menu planned?

Did you buy a turkey yet?

But let’s talk important things like….what wine are you going to pair with that Thanksgiving feast?


State & Allen is here with a few recommendations that pair well with the flavors of a traditional Thanksgiving meal:



You’ll want a fruity wine that can handle the savory and balance the traditional holiday flavors nicely. Grenache is a great choice because it typically gives off hints of cinnamon and cherry, along with strong fruity undertones, helping it team up with just about anything on the table. Grenache blends work well too.



The United States makes the best Zinfandel in the world, so why not add a bottle to your Thanksgiving meal? Warm spices, fruity undertones, and hints of chocolate complement all aspects of a holiday meal.


Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir effortlessly blends with your holiday festivities as it boasts hints of dry herbs, cloves, citrus, and berries. Pinot Noir makes the holidays more merry and is perfect with just about any holiday meal.



Riesling works better than most whites because it’s a perfect balance of fruit and acidity, which pairs well with the sweet and the savory dishes on your plate.


Wines to Avoid: Cabernet

While we love a good cab as much as the next guy, it just isn’t the right match for a Thanksgiving meal. Cabernets are rich in tannins, which tend to make some aspects of the traditional holiday meal taste sour.


Hopefully, this helps you build your Thanksgiving menu, and if you need a little wine fix in the meantime, you know where to find us! State & Allen has a huge selection of delicious red, white, and sparkling wines to take the edge off of the holiday season. Join us this week at the best restaurant and bar in Uptown Dallas!

State & Allen Releases New Entrees for Fall

State & Allen

As the weather changes, so do our tastebuds. Somehow we just start craving hearty comfort foods instead of our summertime favorites.


The chefs at State & Allen are no different that you and I, and that’s why they’ve cooked up some fabulous new bistro entrees to add to the fall/winter menu at your favorite Dallas restaurant.


Here’s the lowdown:


·      Toasted Butternut Squash and Manchego Ravioli: Oh how we love the rich flavor of Manchego cheese, and it’s perfectly accented in this dish. Al dente ravioli covered in smoked bacon, mushrooms, arugula, walnuts, brown butter, and calvados gastrique. Yum.

·      Filet Mignon: This is comfort food at it’s finest – but jazzed up the State & Allen way! Perfectly seared filet is served with our signature 3-cheese macaroni and cheese, roasted broccolini, and cab demi sauce.

·      Shrimp Fettuccine: Don’t pass this one up – it’s not your typical fettuccine. Fresh shrimp, bacon, sun-dried tomatoes, and a smoked fresno cream sauce are served on a bed of homemade fettuccine noodles. The result – comforting goodness.

·      Barrel Planked Salmon: Get your daily dose of seafood with our barrel planked salmon dish, served with roasted asparagus, red wine risotto, and rosemary butter.

·      Pan Seared Airline Chicken: Lots of hearty favorites, all in one dish! Pan seared chicken, seasonal vegetables, mashed potatoes, and a lemon garlic veloute to top it off.

·      Venison Osso Bucco: Fall favorites abound with venison, parsnips, and glazed baby carrots, drizzled with a black currant braise.
