A Warm Welcome Back to Cool River

Cool River in Las Colinas has upped their game with a new executive chef and menu refresh. A well known Dallas chef partnered with new Executive Chef Fernando Rodriguez to consult and create a number of new and exciting dishes.

It had honestly been 9 years since the last time I dined at Cool River, so I was long overdue for a visit. What I found was beyond a warm welcome, with stellar service and a fresh, trendy, and tasty new menu. The ambiance is quite dark and masculine, which made it hard for me to get great food photos, so shout out and thanks to Cool River for providing me with some beautiful well-lit food pics on top of a beautiful dinner.

Whether in the mood for steak or seafood, you'll be in for a treat with their new menu items and well-planned daily features. While Cool River may have been thought of in days of old as a destination designed for traveling businessmen, I'm here to tell you the menu is more than female-friendly, even if I do typically eat more like a "dude". With fresh and light items like their Ahi Tuna Tartare, Creamy Garlic Hummus, Cool River Field Greens Salad, and Honey Glazed Atlantic Salmon, the menu challenges the stereotype many have had about it.

Don't worry fellas, and those with heartier appetites like myself,  there is still plenty for you to sink your teeth into. With large steak portions, barbecued ribs, shrimp and scallop dishes which both come wrapped in bacon,  and 40 beers on tap, there's still much to be enjoyed by you, too. Pay special attention if they feature a special steak that comes with sea salt and lit on fire, that one is dinner AND a show.

I was absolutely delighted with the new menu and the service at Cool River. Be it a steak house or seafood you're seeking, I urge you to go back and say "hi" and let them wow you, too.
