I had high hopes for Nick & Sam’s Grill when I woke up Sunday morning; I went for a jog, did my laundry, and even took it easy Saturday night so I could enjoy my experience to the fullest and really sate my gluttony … and I’m so glad I did.
Upon walking into the modernly decorated restaurant (formerly Strong’s), we saw many familiar faces that were already seated enjoying the food and drink (and some beautiful faces I didn’t know but would have liked to!) – they recommended the omelette station (apparently it was the first day they had it available). It was a perfectly sunny day, ideal for enjoying a brunch on the patio. The beautifully-mixed blood orange (bottomless) mimosa hit the spot while waiting for our table.
Once seated, Olivia and I ordered our choices with much difficulty – everything on the menu sounded fantastic – and noshed on the sticky breads, pain au chocolate, and croissants while sipping our mimosas. The wait staff was on top of things to say the least. They eagerly stood by to fill our glasses back to the top and were quick to offer advice or a funny remark. I ordered a spicy bloody mary to accompany my meal and it was delightful – honestly the best I’ve had in Dallas.
Our food was out in a snap: Asian chicken salad, breakfast quesadilla, and the best grilled cheese and tomato soup I’ve had in ages – I definitely recommend! This was not your mama’s grilled cheese; the secret ingredient: pear. Brilliant. The bloody mary was the perfect complement to the sandwich.
The meal was a delight and I strongly recommend visiting … just make sure your stomach and the night ahead of you are empty!
