Taverna - Dallas
“Taverna is a warm and inviting neighborhood restaurant that offers a truly Italian experience without having to leave Texas. Our Italian chefs strive to create the perfect menu using seasonal ingredients for their surprising entrees.”
Texas may conjure up images of chili, frito pie. and barbeque. Italian may not be the first cuisine that comes to mind. I was in Dallas, Texas to see my new nephews (twins) this past week. While there I had breakfast one day at Taverna.
1. Go for breakfast or brunch. This is a popular spot for large groups, so be prepared for a wait.
2. I ordered the Vanilla French Toast served with mascarpone and fresh fruit. The light and buttery flavor was perfect for a Sunday morning. The Italian element of this dish comes from the thickened cream, almost butter called mascarpone. This thickened cream is a traditional cheese from Italy made using cream and an acid such as lemon juice.
3. You may also want to check out the special menu items posted daily. These include
various frittatas and omelets.
It appears good service, friendly southern hospitality, and fresh ingredients
are the recipe for success at Taverna. The Lombardi Family Concepts group owns Taverna, 31, Toulouse, Penne Pomodoro, and Lombardi’s. Alberto Lombardi is the patriarch of his family and was born in Italy. Since coming to the United States he has opened many restaurants in Texas, Nevada, and California.
