Your Trinity Groves resolutions for 2017

As one of Dallas’ hubs for innovation, Trinity Groves is more than a place to eat, drink, shop and relax. It’s also a place to explore a unique approach to urban living, learn about traditions and trends in global cuisine and follow through on your goals for living better in 2017.

Even sticking to just one of our New Year’s resolutions can help you become more willing to say “yes” to all the uncommon, unusual and exhilarating experiences your world has to offer.

Resolution #1: Brunch, lunch and dinner once a month at Trinity Groves 

Each month, try building one day around a different dining schedule. An intimate dinner can be the highlight of your weekend. It can also be a great way to unwind at the end of a long Tuesday or Wednesday. Tweaking your routines can produce unexpected insights. How might brunch at Chino change up the rhythm of your Sunday? What if you really went old school and made lunch the big meal of the day? Babb Brothers BBQ has all the fixin’s — smoked meats, sides that would be the envy of any picnic, classic desserts — you’ll need for this experiment.

Resolution #2: Order the special

How many times have you tuned out while your server recites the details of entrees that don’t appear anywhere on the menu you’re trying to read? Instead, try paying attention to those dishes. Amberjax Fish Market Grille features daily specials selected by Chef Larry Williams that are guaranteed to be fresh. Or mix it up with the specialty cocktails you can sip exclusively at Casa Rubia’s Pintxo Social Hour.

Resolution #3: Look around you

From Saint Rocco’s rooftop lounge to Souk’s modern Mediterranean styling, Trinity Groves is home to restaurateurs who understand the importance of setting. Artful table arrangements, sensitive lighting and decor that tells a story (e.g., The Hall’s Wall of Fame) all contribute to your dining experience. And let’s not forget entertainment either. Live music and dancing (a la Souk’s belly dancers) can enliven any meal. This year, don’t just visit Trinity Groves. Take a tour.

Resolution #4: Go on a walkabout

Bring your curiosity with you every time you visit Trinity Groves and let it lead you from one eatery to another. All our distinctive restaurant concepts are located within walking distance of each other. You can easily sample the duck fat fried appetizer at Chino Chinatown, discover the umami deliciousness that is unakyu (eel) at Sushi Bayashi, share a taco board at Beto & Son and finish off the night with a palate-cleansing IPA at LUCK.

Resolution #5: Eat your vegetables

If “lose some weight” isn’t the No. 1 New Year’s resolution, then “eat healthier” might be. Trinity Groves’ V-Eats specializes in sustainable, cruelty-free vegan versions of Texas favorites, from brisket tacos to chuck wagon chili. Thanks to chefs Troy Gardner’s and John Mercer’s ingenuity and craftsmanship, you’ll hardly notice there’s no meat on V-Eats’ flavorful menu. Make V-Eats your choice when you need to satisfy your comfort food cravings but want to avoid the aftertaste of guilt.

Resolution #6: Stay connected

Download the new Trinity Groves app for your smartphone (available for both iOS and Android devices). It’s your virtual concierge, designed to make your visits to Trinity Groves as convenient and fulfilling as possible. We’ll make sure you never miss out on exclusive offers or special events. You can also explore menus, save and rank your favorites and make reservations. You can even arrange for an Uber pickup from within the app.

The start of 2017 doesn’t have to be a downer, and your resolutions don’t have to be all about deprivation. Trinity Groves is looking forward being your partner in the pursuit of happiness in 2017.
