Five destinations for Memorial Day weekend

Dying for dining inspiration? The weekend is just a few short hours away, and if you still need a place to eat brunch, lunch, or dinner this weekend, Eater’s got your back.

As part of this newly-revamped series, Eater editors will share new restaurants, revisit old favorites, and round up the city’s most compelling food events. Even if you’re not able to hit all of the spots on Saturday and Sunday, add these four Dallas restaurants to this weekend’s bucket list.

TGIF, y’all.

Friday, May 25

For boozy popsicles that will definitely beat the heat: 3Eleven

Summer is here, y’all — and that means that it’s hot as hell. Head to this West End newcomer for booze-spiked popsicles in flavors like pineapple-cucumber, spicy cucumber-lime, and orange-grapefruit. Each pop is $3, or you can double-fist for only $5.

3Eleven Kitchen & Cocktails, 311 North Market Street

For a brand new twist on pig head carnitas: CBD Provisions

This Downtown eatery is famous for its whole-roasted pig’s head, and now they’re offering a Cuban take on this Dallas classic. Instead of the traditional fixin’s, find mojo rojo and mojo verde, tomatillo salsita, and white corn tortillas alongside this Instagram-worthy hunk of meat.

CBD Provisions, 1530 Main Street

For goat yoga, barbecue, and cocktails: Ferris Wheelers

Head to this barbecue joint with its very own Ferris wheel for Happy Goat Yoga, starting at 10 a.m. on Monday. Goat yoga, barbecue, and free Grey Goose cocktails await, plus plenty of opportunities to take selfies with adorable pygmy goats. Tickets are $35.

Ferris Wheelers BBQ, 1950 Market Center Boulevard

For tableside mimosa towers and excellent Tex-Mex: Beto & Son

This Trinity Groves spot is serving brunch on Memorial Day, making it a solid destination for pre-pool eating and drinking. Enjoy a gigantic tower of mimosas right at the table, paired with modern Tex-Mex dishes.

Beto & Son, 3011 Gulden Lane

For free bubbly and beats: Dolce Riviera

This party-friendly Harwood District restaurant will host Bubbles + Beats brunch on Sunday, May 27, complete with free champagne from Ferghettina. DJ Souljah will be on hand to spin tunes while diners dig into plates like crespelle alla banana (banana crepes).

Dolce Riviera, 2950 North Harwood Street

Friday, May 18

For chic French fare inside a historic hotel: Perle on Maple

This French newcomer, which opened its doors inside the Stoneleigh hotel this week, brings a midcentury modern aesthetic and a kitchen helmed by a Chompped alum to Uptown. Head to Perle on Main to check out chef Wade Burch’s duck confit pancakes, bacon-wrapped Bandera quail, and more swanky plates.

For a last visit to a Dallas dining icon: FT33

Last week, chef Matt McCallister announced that he would shutter FT33, the iconic Design District restaurant that kickstarted Dallas’ culinary scene. The restaurant is set to close its doors in mid-June, which means that diners only have a few more weeks for one last (or perhaps a first!) taste of McCallister’s obsessively local fare.

For hangover-curing diner fare: Goldrush Cafe

This beloved greasy spoon closed its doors last week after the death of its founder, Virgil Sanchez, Sr., but Goldrush Cafe is officially back in business. Swing by for a plate of eggs and bacon, and pay your respects to this beloved Dallas comfort food institution.

To support a recently-robbed restaurant: Zoli’s NY Pizza

Earlier this week, a trio of masked thieves barged into Zoli’s NY Pizza and stole its safe. The Addison pizzeria has already enlisted its biggest fans in the search for these robbers, but diners can swing by this weekend for killer pies (the Lil’ Troy is an Eater favorite) and pasta dishes while helping replenish those stolen funds.
