Summer Lunch Specials in the Dallas Arts District

Next time you find yourself in the Dallas Arts District with your tummy rumbling, consider taking a city picnic in One Arts Plaza. Five upscale restaurants are participating in this year’s Picnic on the Plaza with special offers for lunchtime diners – whether you choose to eat in, dine out on the patio, or take your meal to go.

Tei An
This Japanese venue offers a bento box entree for $14 featuring a mix of fresh sushi, soba, tempura and chicken. Called the Jewelry Box, it is a delight to the eyes as well as the palate (see photo).

Dali Wine Bar and Restaurant
Executive chef, Joel Harloff, creates special box lunches here (we’re talking sandwiches with imported French ham and honey mustard aioli) starting at $8.75 Tuesday – Friday from 11:30am – 2:30pm.

Hats off to Fedora for dishing up yummy northern Italian style express lunches. For a mere $9, you get handmade pasta and your choice of salad Tuesday – Friday from 11am – 2:30pm.

Screen Door
Chef David McMillan takes southern comfort food for a gourmet spin with seasonal lunch specials such as a fried soft shell crab BLT at Screen Door Monday – Friday, from 11am – 2pm.

All five participating eateries are located in One Arts Plaza, a dining and entertainment hub located on the east side of the Dallas Arts District. For those without a car, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has regular bus and rail routes heading to and from Pearl Street Station – which is walking distance to One Arts Plaza – throughout the day.
