The city's legendary subterranean dining gem that closed during the pandemic in 2020 has been brought back to life, thanks to new owner Meredith McEneny. Grilled USDA Prime dry-aged steaks, New York strips, A5 Japanese wagyu, and a porterhouse for two headline the show along with new entrées such as lobster & king crab rigatoni and traditional beef wellington. Best seats in the house? The patio which boosts a 5-tiered granite water wall and lava rock fire pit. Fun fact: The restaurant was built underground in order to skirt a clause in the deed by the previous property owner, First Dallas Baptist Church, which prohibited any future owner from selling alcohol on (but not below) former church grounds.
