With an incredible collection of beers from around the world — on tap, in bottles, offered by flights or even hand-pumped from the cask, all served by knowledgeable, enthusiastic bartenders and servers — the Moth was already a beer-lover’s dream.
Now with chef David McMillan (lately of the erstwhile Screen Door) in charge of the kitchen, Shannon Wynne’s vibrant, 3-year-old Design District spot has grown into a Dallas treasure. The food may not always be brilliant (the rabbit potpie, for instance, is more like an uneventful soup in a crust), but sometimes it is, as in fried chicken skin in a sweet-spicy glaze with crumbles of blue cheese. Chicken liver pâté delivers, the fish and chips are crisply correct and the burger is much improved. Mussels appear in an array of beer-friendly preparations. Recently the version with charred tomatoes, garlic and thin-sliced Spanish chorizo was so well-matched (thanks to our server’s advice) with a piney, hoppy cask-tapped Green Flash West Coast IPA, I nearly swooned. What a happy moment, sitting and sipping that savory broth and stellar ale under the colorful stained-glass panels depicting the kings of rock ’n’ roll.
No wonder the place is always busy: It has a great vibe. It may be Dallas’ all-around best gastropub.
