New restaurant and lounge XOXO Dining Room has finally made its debut on Ross Avenue, and Dallasites on social media already love it. The new space mixes an exclusive speakeasy-style cocktail lounge with an outstanding pink dining room on the brink of downtown, Paper City reported.
London’s famous Sketch restaurant, particularly known for its extravagant booths, walls and pink-glazed everything, inspired this new Dallas hotspot. Expect a DJ to perform nightly every Thursday through Saturday, and the booths even include a “press for champagne” button.
Executive chef Zach Warner designed XOXO Dining Room’s menu, which features shareable options like Arancini with truffle and the vegetarian “Impossible” meatballs with semolina, broccolini, and Parmesan. Other meals include an “unwedged” salad, 44 Farms Filet Mignon, ricotta gnocchi, a special smoked potato mousse, and truffle fries. For dessert, grab a cupcake off the XOXO cupcake wheel.
XOXO Dining Room also includes a speakeasy “Mr. X” cocktail lounge. The entrance is concealed, and you have to dial a phone number to get in. Once inside, the dark room has vintage photos hanging on the walls and dark leather booths. Acts, such as burlesque dancers, live music and aerial artists, regularly perform in the lounge.
To reserve a table during XOXO Dining Room’s limited-hour opening, visit the website. Opening hours are 6 p.m. to close Thursday through Sunday, but the restaurant hopes to extend these hours starting in July.
