Easter Sunday is set to be a festive day at popular Dallas-based restaurant Al Biernat’s. The Oak Lawn and North restaurant locations are planning a splendid brunch on Sunday, April 17 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Al Biernat’s annual Easter brunch includes classic dishes such as Strawberry Topped Pancakes, Lump Crab Cakes, Brioche French Toast and Avocado Toast topped with Poached Eggs. The brunch menu was recently refreshed, and new menu items available this year include innovative dishes like Biscuits & Italian Sausage Gravy, Crawfish Etouffee Benedit and a Texas Brunch Sandwich.
Dallasites know and love Al Biernat’s for their outstanding menu, service, and environment, and the experience continues to become more impressive. Al Biernat’s North has unveiled stunning renovations to their indoor and outdoor dining areas, guaranteed to elevate any business meeting, girls’ night out, date night, or weekend brunch.
Sunday, January 23, marks a sweet tooth’s favorite holiday – National Pie Day, and those craving a slice are invited stop by Al Biernat’s to get a piece of the action. With multiple pies headlining Al’s dessert menu, including Al’s Famous Coconut Cream Pie, Dallasites can enjoy their own personal slice of heaven at the iconic American steakhouse.
Both Al Biernat’s North and Oak Lawn locations will be open for Christmas Eve lunch and dinner and will host its annual festivities on New Year’s Eve. Al’s is also offering to-go coffee cocktail packages from the Oak Lawn location, perfect to bring along on those festive carriage rides through Highland Park to view the lights.
Mac and Cheese lovers – rejoice! Wednesday, July 14 marks National Macaroni and Cheese Day, and Dallasites can celebrate the cheesy, warm holiday with famous steakhouse Al Biernat’s and their signature Mac & Cheese comfort dish.
Available at both the Al Biernat’s North and Oak Lawn locations, the decadent Mac & Cheese dish includes a mix of signature cheeses topped with crunchy breadcrumbs to create a gooey, savory treat perfect for sharing or not sharing. The gourmet side dish starts at $12 and for an additional cost, guests can choose to elevate the creamy pasta dish with three ounces of fresh lobster meat.
Al’s signature Mac & Cheese makes for the perfect side dish to compliment one of the restaurant’s famous meat or seafood entrees. The chefs at Al’s suggest trying their famous side dish alongside their Filet Mignon, Prime Rib or Crab Stuffed Lemon Sole, served with sautéed spinach and lobster butter sauce.
The glorious seafood tower is a dish of raw and cooked shellfish served cold on a platter, usually on a bed of ice. The serving platter is generally held above table level with a stand and sometimes can contain multiple, elaborate tiers. This is both for visual effect, and because the shellfish are often served in the shell, or on the half shell, which causes them to take up a large area while containing only a bite or two of meat.
We found some very nice versions in Dallas. Although they are not particularly inexpensive, as would be expected when you start adding King Crab and elusive oysters, but typically you may order several levels to feed a varying amount of people you are dining with. However, one might make an entire meal of such platter along with a special bottle of wine.
Enjoy this bit of extravagance which is appropriate for any occasion. See our list, in no particular order. Prices listed, otherwise the tower is market-priced. Continue reading →
