No bones about it - Lazy Dog is a concept I've become fondly familiar with over the short two years they've been in the Dallas area. One thing I especially love, other than obviously the dog-friendly patio, is the fact that they introduce new menu items seasonally. You can transport to a Rocky Mountain lodge escape without even having to leave DFW. With 3 locations - in Addison, Plano, and Euless - there's a spot for food and dog lovers across the metroplex to enjoy the scratch menu items.
New to the fall and winter menu, created by Lazy Dog's Executive Chef Gabe Caliendo, you'll find a continuation of the all-American dishes, all elevated with seasonal ingredients and fun new takes on classics. With the new Maple Bacon Old Fashioned you can cozy up next to the fireplace and just wait for the temperatures to drop (any minute now, Texas).

There are a couple of new Starters to entice your soon-to-be-chilly taste buds with some spice. For one - the Bacon Candy (yeah I said it) - crispy bacon coated in brown sugar, crushed red chili flakes, and black pepper. Popcorn lovers will likely be unable to stop munching on the (Happy Hour only) Pow Pow Popcorn - a kicked up popcorn snack with house-made caramel, sea salt, chili flakes, and sesame seeds. Addictive. Pairs well with Old Fashioned and friends, plus Fido on the patio.

The dark horse dish of the night for my husband and myself - the Seasonal Roasted Street Carrots. Don't write me off just yet. With a preparation a lot like Mexican street corn, this dish inspired me to eat more carrots than I had in years (cheers to 35 more years with no need for glasses?). The gorgeous organic rainbow heirloom carrots marry surprisingly well with the garlic, queso blanco, cilantro lime crema and tajin.

Other new share-ables include Blistered Green Beans, Onion Ring Poutine (another favorite), and Buffalo Cauliflower (I could totally fool myself into skipping the chicken wings with this one).

New entrees like Parmesan and Herb Crusted Alaskan Halibut dress up for winter with a warm Brussels Sprout and Heirloom Tomato Salad.

Or grab the massive hunk of Berkshire Pork Chop which comes sitting atop a memorable Spicy Kimchi Fried Rice.

Beef eaters will notice two new Certified Angus beef options on the menu, a 14 oz Ribeye with blue cheese butter and a 7 oz Petite Filet with bacon jam. There's also a Mushroom and Bacon Crisp that makes for a nice crunchy game-day meal.

In addition to the new menu items, Lazy Dog has launched DIY Mimosas all day on Sundays for $20. Diners receive a 750ml bottle of Freixenet with a trio of juices for your mixing: tangerine-orange, huckleberry, and peach-raspberry. They're also featuring Monday Night Happy Hour all night from 3pm-close until the end of football season. Beer enthusiasts can watch their favorite team while sipping on the new FallFest Beer Sampler of 3 -8oz pours of Lazy Dog Hefeweizen, Samuel Adams Octoberfest, and Dogfish Head Punkin Ale.
With so many new food and drink options, it just might be time to grab Fido and grab a seat on the patio to enjoy a scratch made meal anyone would bark about.
