“Dallas' original neighborhood wine bistro”
Inspired by the bistros and wine bars of New York City & Europe, two friends, who met in New York, moved back to Dallas in 1972 to open The Grape. Historically The Grape was the first restaurant in Dallas to offer a blackboard menu as well as one of the first to offer wines by the glass. Over the years The Grape has boasted a cast of employees that reads like a who’s who of Dallas. Noted restaurateur, Alberto Lombardi, an early waiter; award winning film director, Julian Schnabel, was a part-time chef; Frank Bailey, brother of Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, was the original chef in 1972; Diane Teitelbaum, wine writer for the Dallas Morning News and national wine critic, was the restaurant’s first waitress and manager.
