Change is on the horizon at The Grill, located at Galleria Dallas. While the interior still looks the same (for now, stay tuned), the menu has had a facelift with the introduction of a number of new menu items.
I attended a media dinner where The Grill’s Executive Chef Michael Stewart flew in from California to present to us his latest culinary creations. After a warm welcome from GM/Executive Chef Robert Hall and the rest of the team, we embarked on a delightful tasting of some of the newest menu items.
You might typically think of The Grill as "dude food", with heavy steakhouse meals that don't leave room for lighter features. Not so at The Grill, as they still have lots of light and fresh seafood options even a pescatarian can climb on board with.
To start, try the Ahi Poke or the Crab & Hamachi Sushi Roll if you're feeling up for something light. If you want something heavier, the Nueske's Bacon (shown above) is like meat candy that will literally melt in your adoring mouth.

For the main course, I've heard their classic Chicken Pot Pie is the stuff dreams are made of. You also can't go wrong with their NY Strip, 14 ounce Pork Chop, or Australian Lamb Rack.

On the lighter side, I loved the Sea Scallops with smoked carrot puree. This dish is fresh and bright and served with veggies and a grilled lemon. Ask for a side of Lobster Mashed Potatoes. These are their classic mashed potatoes, loaded up with chunks of lobster meat. Absolutely divine.

P.S. if you eat (sort of) light for a whole meal I totally think you can splurge on dessert (and even if not, leave some room). Who can say no to this Coconut Cake? 6 layers, served with passion fruit coulis, this is a crowd pleaser.

So far, I say the facelift at The Grill is looking pretty good, don't you? Call and make your reservation and experience the revitalization firsthand.
