Eat Locally This Weekend for #ValentinesRedo in DFW

Payton Cavin

Looking for a bit of a #ValentinesRedo?

Local businesses in the Dallas metroplex have been hit with a shutdown yet AGAIN this year. Winter Storms in Texas caused many small businesses to close their doors due to inclement weather right before, and DURING Valentine’s Day.

I reached out to local bloggers and rounded up their recommendations of the best restaurants in the area so we can help #SupportLocal and get out of the house for a delicious meal!

Join us this weekend and of course ACTUALLY celebrate Valentine’s Day with your Valentine, Galentine or even your family at any of these great restaurants! ❣️

Heirloom Haul- Frisco, TX

I am a total sucker for a cute aesthetic and a daytime date. Cue...Heirloom Haul, an extension to the shop Flea Style at The Star in Frisco, which exudes major vintage boho vibes and curated fashion and vintage items from local vendors.

The menu ranges from Texas waldorf salad, hippie veggie sandwiches, creamy tomato and basil soup, avocado toast, and plenty of to-die-for sides!

They also offer full charcuterie boards, macarons, a pretty epic coffee + tea assortment as well as specialty sips such as the Rosė Frosė or the Sparkling Hibiscus Lavender Tea.

If you are looking to feel extra fancy, though, look no further because they offer Tea Service for only $30 a person.

As an add-on, Flea Style has moved their Galentine’s Day Market to this weekend, February 20th-21st from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m!

What’s better than supporting local by shopping and eating at one stop? 😍

Legacy Food Hall- Plano, TX

Perfect if you or your date can’t decide on one cuisine! At Legacy Food Hall there are plenty of options to choose from all in one place.

“Legacy Food Hall is a one of a kind place as it features many restaurants' first brick and mortar location from iconic food trucks!” - Breshell West

Everytime I have personally gone to Legacy Food Hall I eat and drink something completely DIFFERENT! One time I had tacos, and everytime I have a margarita. 🍹

Their next event is this weekend, Febraury 20th, 2021, as well. Experience a Journey Tribute by Departure ATX while sipping on craft cocktails, and stay late in the night for the 21+ DJ After Party on the third floor.

Anyone who has ever been can agree that it is a great date night idea! You get to take the guesswork out of agreeing on your meals, can enjoy plenty of seating options and live music. 👌🏼

Sixty Vines- Plano, TX

Sixty Vines in Plano is another great place to take your best gal or your man on a daytime date for wine tasting with perfect pairings! 🧀

Instead of buying a plane ticket to wine country, you can visit Sixty Vines!

Everything on their menu is meant to pair well with their wines. YUM! 🍷

“It’s the perfect atmosphere for catching up with friends while enjoying music! The fire lit tables and s’mores make you feel at home. It’s not just an atmosphere it’s an experience!” - Anna Leigh Wilson

I personally can agree that the Eight 11 experience is unmatched! I have spent countless nights here with friends just talking over the fire with a glass of moscato.

The salads are to die for, and there is usually live music on the weekends! 🎶
