When founders Jonathan Calabrese and Tony Winkler were putting together a concept for State & Allen Kitchen + Bar, they knew they wanted their new Uptown Dallas restaurant and bar to be set apart. To be effortless and fun. A true neighborhood restaurant where friends could meet to mingle, watch a game, and enjoy a few drink specials. In laying the groundwork, they put together a plan for an incomparable experience with great food, location, design, and service.
- Food: Whether you join us for lunch, dinner, happy hour drinks and apps, or Sunday brunch, you’ll notice that our menu is anything but typical. At State & Allen, our goal is to plate the best food; food that inspires surprise and delight, while being simple and unpretentious. At the heart of each dish you’ll find fresh food purchased from local farmers and artisans. Our chefs believe food should be simple, local, fresh, and delicious. That’s why our chef-driven concept hinges on an appreciation for local foods and flavors – harnessing those flavors and turning them into unforgettable meals.
- Location: Located in the heart of Uptown Dallas, we love being your neighborhood restaurant and bar! A hub for young professionals, Uptown is an upscale area of Dallas with many modern conveniences right at your fingertips. Yet, there’s a comfort and ease that comes with the walkability and vibrancy of the area. It’s where we feel right at home.
- Design: The design for our Uptown restaurant and bar mirrors the vibe of Uptown itself. It’s not stuffy and frou-frou. But it’s not a dive either. State & Allen offers a comfortable atmosphere that’s laid back and fun – and designed as such! Warm brick, butcher block tables, French-bistro style garage doors that can open on game days, honey cedar planked walls, etc. – these are the elements that feel cozy and inviting, offering casual elegance to your everyday meal.
- Service: Our team prides itself on offering impeccable customer service – whether it’s when making a reservation or placing an order with one of our wait staff. Count on State & Allen to offer top notch service!
