Have you ever wanted to stay in a iconic hotel filled with loads of history? If you live in, or are coming through Dallas, TX, you must stay at the Adolphus Hotel.
Built in 1912, by the founder of Anheuser-Busch company, Adolphus Busch constructed Dallas's first grand and posh hotel of the city.
Even with recent renovations done to the property, you can still feel the history walking through the front doors of the hotel.
As you approach the front desk to check into this lavish hotel, the original keys that were once used to get into your room, hang behind the desk now as a piece of history. As much as we'd love to have one of the keys to get into our room, we'd probably lose it before we even got to the elevator. We lose our hotel keys faster than the blink of an eye, I don't know how people kept a hold of those things back then.
We were told the 19th floor of the hotel was haunted so we were relieved when we were told we would be staying on the 12th floor!
The original elevators are a little frightening but very cool and have a lot of character!
Our room was amazing and so spacious. It was absolutely pristine, we didn't even want to sit anywhere in fear of messing it up. Pretty sure both of our beds were king beds, I mean how many hotels have that?? They were as soft as a cloud and we both had the best nights rest!
We started with some specials that were off the menu, sent out by Chef Robison. Beef Tartare and yellow beets. The beef tartare was one of the best we've had in Dallas, hands down. Honestly, we are not huge fans of beets (kind of taste like dirt in our opinion lol), but they were pretty!!
Next we had the spicy chorizo hummus. It was great and full of flavor.
The broccolini and brussel sprouts were great. We enjoyed the brussel sprouts over the broccolini.
The ricotta gnocchi was like eating big balls of clouds! The lamb and mushrooms added so much delicious flavor! A+ on this dish. Make sure you order a couple of these if you plan on sharing!
We finished off our dinner at City Hall Bistro, with dry aged New York Strip that was cooked to perfection!
