Restaurant review part deux: The People’s Last Stand in Dallas
Good for a happy hour pre- or post-movie at Angelika Film Center.
Wednesday evening we found ourselves at The People's Last Stand for happy hour. This fairly new spot is located in Mockingbird Station, upstairs by Angelika.
They have quite an extensive list of cocktails and segment their drink menu into five categories: Alchemy, Sours & Flips, Classic, High Balls and Kon-Tiki/Aperitifs/Beer. We ordered a Great White Jail out of the High Ball section and a Boleyn from the Alchemy section.
The Great White Jail was made up of pear bourbon, bitters, ginger beer, and lemon juice all served up in a copper cup. The Boleyn had gin, pureed strawberries, rose water, yellow chartreuse, and lemon juice served up in a champagne glass. Both of the choices were refreshingly different.
We ordered the cheese plate to accompany our cocktails and were very pleased. All of the cheese choices are straight from one of our very favorite cheese shops in Dallas, Scardello. You get your choice of three cheeses from their chalkboard; we went with the cheddar, brie, and gouda. The cheese was served with toasted bread slices, almonds, raspberry chutney, and a honeycomb. No complaints here!
