The Design District’s new weekend brunch destination is Commons Club, the ground-level restaurant inside Virgin Hotels Dallas. The Kitchen in Commons Club headed up by celebrated Chef Matt McCallister has announced the exciting launch of a brunch menu for those looking to indulge. On nice days, patrons can grab a table outside on the large wrap-around dog-friendly patio boasting Design District views. Served exclusively every Saturday and Sunday, the locally sourced menu of breakfast and lunch classics takes brunching to the next level with fresh-baked artisanal bread and pastries and from scratch condiments.
Light shareable dishes, perfect for the warmer weather, include the Coctel de Camaron prepared with gulf shrimp, tomato aquachile, cucumber, avocado and tostadas and a TX Watermelon Salad made with passion fruit, coconut and lime espuma, toasted pine nuts and basil.
There are heartier standouts, too, like the Chicken & Waffles, a crispy Bell & Evans chicken breast and buttermilk waffle topped with a hot chili and honey drizzle and the Brisket Hash served with pecan-smoked brisket, pickled peppers, sunny eggs and crispy potatoes. The menu also features several craveable takes on breakfast favorites like the Huevos Rancheros with guajillo salsa ranchero, crisp tortillas, mashed pintos, wood-fired rotisserie chicken, two farm eggs and avocado. On the lunch side of things is the signature Uncommon Burger made with Texas beef on a brioche bun topped with sharp cheddar and special sauce.
For those craving something sweet, a focal point on the new menu is Pastry Chef Cristal Gonzalez’s house-made seasonal sweet bread kolaches currently filled with Texas peaches.
Guests can upgrade their brunching experience with a variety of new brunch cocktails. Among the most creative are a French Toast with lemon juice, maple syrup, Hennessy, prosecco and cinnamon sugar, and a Sangre Del Toro with Sombra mezcal, Zing Zang, giardiniera puree, tajin and a jalapeno wheel.
