Trinity Groves is the hip new spot where you can do some shopping, enjoy incredible patio dining, and partake in a beautiful view of the Dallas skyline. Located at the base of the sleek Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in West Dallas, Trinity Groves is a 15-acre area of restaurants, retail, and entertainment space. You can easily walk from one restaurant to another and outdoor dining space abounds. It is a casual, fun place to take friends, watch a game, or bring a date.

There are many restaurants to choose from, including LUCK (Local Urban Craft Kitchen). Designed as a craft beer inspired kitchen, it is the perfect place to spend an evening with your significant other. It is laid back, inviting, reasonably priced, and serves great food and beverages. First time restaurateurs, Chef Daniel Pittman, Jeff Dietzman, and Ned Steel, focus on local food and beers, making the experience comfortable and friendly.

LUCK has a great bar area where you can order one of their many local craft beers and watch a football game.

If you can't choose just one of the local craft beers, try a flight and get four 4-oz pours for $8.

The beer list is extensive with all of the selection being local craft beers. For a fun experience, try a beer flight, which allows you to try four different 4-oz pours for the low price of $8. The wait staff is extremely knowledgeable about their beers, so feel free to get some recommendations from the experts. On Tuesdays, LUCK has live music and pint night with a different brewery each week.

The food menu is not as extensive, but instead they focus on simple and tasty American food, like salads, sandwiches, shrimp & grits, and ribs. Portions are good for sharing and the quality of ingredients and good flavors elevate what could be perceived as typical bar food. 

The Fried Green Tomatoes were crunchy and spicy with a special Tex-Mex twist: Texas "caviar" and arbol chile aioli.

The Watermelon & Jicama Salad was light and refreshing with cubes of sweet watermelon, golden kernels of roasted corn, creamy goat cheese, and arugula. The only downside of the salad is that it was slightly overdressed.

The Signature Pastrami was a hearty sandwich served with homemade, extra crispy potato chips. The meat is a Texas brisket style pastrami, house-cured for 3 days and smoked for 15 hours.

After lingering over your meal and beer flight at LUCK, head to Kate Weiser Chocolate to satisfy your sweet tooth. This newly opened chocolate shop was started by 28-year-old Kate Weiser, a pastry chef and true chocolate artist. You walk into this funky storefront and immediately feel the power of chocolate. They serve everything you could ever want: gorgeous chocolates, chocolate bars, ice cream, candy bars, macaroons, and even coffee. 

You can usually catch Kate in her workshop crafting those deliciously beautiful confections.

An array of colorful chocolates greet you as you enter the shop, and they are as equally stunning as they are delicious.

Our favorite chocolates were the Truffle Honey, Ninja Turtle, and Peanut Brittle. The Truffle Honey is silky milk chocolate with a sweet truffle honey ganache. The lime green Ninja Turtle has a smooth, buttery caramel with ground toasted pecans. And the Peanut Brittle was a gorgeous concoction of milk chocolate peanut butter gianduja and crispy peanut brittle.

If you're searching for your next date spot, look no further than Trinity Groves. While there are many fun options to choose from, head to LUCK for dinner and stop by Kate Weiser Chocolate for some gorgeously tasty chocolate bites. You won't regret it.
