As if we didn’t indulge enough this Valentine’s weekend, the Dallas Brunch Club decided to follow cupid’s arrow to Terilli’s for a Sunday brunch with our amores.
Apparently, we weren’t the only ones who decided to cap off the weekend with celebration. There was a half-hour wait for a table. Luckily, we had a “Build Your Own Bloody Mary” bar to pass the time and for $4 – what a steal! Especially for those piling theirs high with jumbo shrimp and banana peppers.
After 20 more frustrating minutes of waiting on our table to be cleaned that we had already been paged for, we were finally seated at a perfect little table on the patio. The ideal spot for watching Dallas’ finest rev their engines down Greenville to compensate for what they may be lacking!
The long wait was quickly forgiven, when our waitress brought us some complimentary blueberry muffins with a side of strawberry butter. Heaven. That fluffy, pink goodness is the stuff that dreams are made of.
After every morsel of muffin was devoured, we ordered an array of entrees. For myself, I chose the Egg White Omelet. If you’re a goat cheese fan at all, then this is definitely for you – super cheesy, therefore obviously delicious!
After discovering that there was a crab shortage, due to the lover’s holiday, other DBC members settled on such entrees as the Gorgonzola Omelet and the Bistro Burger.
Although all were enjoyed, none could come close to the amazingness that is the Italcho! The Italchos are a Terilli’s speciality - an order of breakfast nachos piled high with your favorite toppings. We got a little aggressive with our toppings, thus leading to a $25 entrée, however, every bite was worthwhile and the Italchos were the complete envy of others at the table.
Satisfied, yet unwilling to end this glorious day of brunching, we decided to take the party upstairs to the rooftop patio. Here they serve drinks and appetizers, but do not offer the full menu. Maybe trekking the food up three flights of stairs is too risky? Didn’t matter to us, the open-air ambiance of the rooftop was the perfect place to lounge with friends over a few mimosas.
Dish it & Take it
The Crowd: This is a classy joint, catering to those looking to dine out for special occasions. (Though the DBC always considers brunch a special occasion.) Try to make it in before 12:00PM to avoid a long wait.
Dress to Impress: Again, keep it classy! Tory Burch flats and your best sweater set will make you feel right at home.
Sounds Like: A trip down memory lane if you’re into classics from the 60’s & 70’s. You’ll find yourself humming along to classics by legends such as The Beatles and Bob Dylan or in the middle of a Shazaam-ing war with your friend to settle a debate over who sings this song?
Worst Thing About Terilli’s: The $2 mimosas were a little weak on their pours. We later found out that they were running low on champagne after Valentine’s weekend! Next time we’ll make ours a double!
Best Thing About Terilli’s: Three-way tie between the strawberry butter, the Italchos and the rooftop patio! I suggest you make it a perfect day and go for the trifecta!
Just some ladies who brunch, looking for the best places in Big D to grab a mimosa and a bloody mary!
