With autumn in full swing, Fairmont Dallas is extending an invitation for guests to explore its limited-edition food and cocktail menu inspired by two of Dallas’s most cherished fall events: the State Fair and Rivalry Weekend. The iconic Downtown Dallas Hotel offers the ideal setting for guests to gather and savor exceptional culinary creations and craft cocktails, all in celebration of football, the fair, and the autumn season.
To pay homage to the annual State Fair, Executive Chef James Phillips has skillfully crafted two dishes that capture the essence of fair flavors, each with an elevated flair. The Smoked Brisket Crunchwrap presents flavorful brisket wrapped in a tortilla with a medley of vegetables, served atop a bed of sweet potato fries. Meanwhile, the Texas Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich offers guests a chance to relish the nostalgia of a beloved fried favorite, sandwiched between two buttered buns.
Guests are invited to pair their savory Texas-inspired entrees with one of three cocktails inspired by popular fair treats. The Midway Delight, a martini adorned with a fluffy layer of whipped cream and a rim of crystal sugar sprinkles, promises a delightful celebration of flavors, perfectly capturing the essence of the season. For those with a fondness for funnel cakes, the Funnel-Chata awaits, with familiar hints of cinnamon and spice. Lastly, the Big Texas Sour is a vibrant concoction of liqueurs, including Blue Curaçao, Basil Hayden, and Angostura Bitters, celebrating the enduring spirit of Texas fairs.
For Texas and Oklahoma football fans looking to support their favorite teams, Fairmont Dallas offers a choice between the Texas BBQ Burger and the Oklahoma Onion Burger. In the spirit of rivalry, guests can also choose between the Texas Heat Margarita and the Oklahoma Paloma, each representing regional pride. To enhance the excitement for the big game, guests can also choose between two spirited shots, the Longhorn and the Sooner.
The limited edition menu items are available in the Lobby Bar and Pyramid Restaurant and Bar within Fairmont Dallas. Guests can enjoy state fair specials for the entire month of October and Rivalry Weekend specials from October 6-8. Fairmont Dallas is located at 1717 N Akard Street in Dallas, Texas.
