Bread Winners Café & Bakery has been the church of brunch in Dallas since 1994. So when the question comes up: “What do you want for dinner?” Bread Winners may not be the first place to pop in your noggin, even though they’ve been serving dinner for almost as long as they’ve been open. Deprogramming of that brunchie brain will start once you set your eyeballs on Adam Kovac’s new Fall dinner menu, already available.
Executive Chef Adam Kovac (also Executive Chef at Henry’s Majestic and Chef/Owner of Meat Parlour) offers an appealing array of dinner standards that are anything but. All your BFFs will find something to put in their beautiful faces with this something-for-everyone menu.
Start your dinner with one of six MMMM-worthy renditions of classic cocktails. This is the perfectly balanced White Peach Cosmo!
The Caramelized Onion Dip and BBQ Spiced Potato Chips was a starter that I never wanted to end!
This starter of Salt and Pepper Wings with Thai Sticky Sauce = LIP SMACKING
Not a starter, but necessary for your salvation: These fluffy, warm, lightly salted dinner rolls!
The little baby angels (rolls, in case you are confused) are paired with life affirming tomato butter. TOMATO BUTTER
Shrimp with Homestead Gristmill Sharp Cheddar Grits, Caramelized Pork Belly, Bell Pepper and Honey Sriracha – Good for the soul
To go with your daily dose of Bread Winners’ Green Chili Mac and Cheese: Duroc Bone-in Pork Chop with Hickory Smoked Salt, House BBQ Sauce, Crispy Onion
For the carnivore: Melt-in-your-mouth House Meatloaf of Ground Brisket, Chuck, and Pancetta with Leek Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Tomato Demi
Shrimp Bucatini with San Marzano Tomato, Pancetta, and Lemon Butter Zucchini to keep you from being carb-deficient (but definitely slurp-happy)…
Lake meets ocean with the Blackened Redfish with Crab Buerre Blanc and Roasted Asparagus (Eyes closed, saying, “Mmmmmmmm!”)
If you’re not licking your screen, you’re just not human. Head on out to your nearest Bread Winners Café when your tummy rumbles and tells you it’s dinner time. There are four locations: Uptown, Inwood Village, Plano, and Northpark Center (where I enjoyed these fine-looking gut-stuffers).
Look for two new locations coming very soon to Fort Worth (1600 S. University Dr.) and Trophy Club (3000 SH 114 ).
