*I won this dinner visit in a giveaway, but all opinions are my own.*
A few weeks ago on Cinco de Mayo, I won a dinner for two at The Landmark Restaurant in the Warwick Melrose Hotel here in Dallas. I’ve driven past the hotel dozens of times, and I never knew the gem hidden inside. And now I’ll never forget such a splendid place.
The Warwick Melrose Hotel is in Uptown Dallas and was built in 1924. It’s filled with history and is such a classy place. You can’t really miss the massive, orange, brick building.
When we arrived at the restaurant, it was around 6:30 or so, and we basically had the place to ourselves. We had a great view. After about an hour, it started to fill up a little more.
Carter and I started with the pan seared scallops. They were so kind to bring us some rose to pair with the scallops. We both ordered the 8oz prime beef tenderloin. I had mine with the garlic-whipped potatoes, and Carter had his with the loaded, smashed red potatoes. For dessert, we ordered the vanilla creme brulee. Everything was absolutely delicious.
There was an older couple a few tables away from us when we got to the restaurant. Towards the end of our meal, the woman at the table walked over and asked us if we would like the rest of their bottle of wine, because they were leaving and couldn’t take it. It was a lovely bottle of 2007 Barolo, which I’ve never tried before, and it is now one of my favorites. If you like bold, red wines, this one’s for you.
Our waiter was one of the best, and everyone else was very kind and polite. It’s hard to forget a place that has excellent service. I definitely dream of going back and actually staying at the Warwick Melrose one of these days. Fingers crossed!
