By now you know that at The Old State House of Web Design & Development, we know a good thing when we see it. But we also know it when we taste it, and delicious is in abundance at Saint Ann Restaurant Bar & Garden in uptown in Dallas.

This cool atmosphere restaurant you'll love is in a converted former school and it is highly worthy of some very special mention.....excellent! Plus, Saint Ann's artistic decor, brilliant design and outdoor patio area are something to see. If it's a beautiful evening, beeline it to this patio. If the weather isn't being nice, then go inside and the restaurant is one of the most interesting you'll find anywhere. Quite frankly, it's now our favorite casual dining experience in Dallas or Fort Worth. Great date place, great "hanging out" at a civilized bar place as well. They will soon also house the world's largest collection of Samurai artifacts upstairs in an artistically inspired museum.

But wait, we're not finished....not by a long shot. Back to the patio. The outdoor area at Saint Ann is simply the best in Dallas. Period. No discussion. A huge outdoor area and bar, an inspired elongated fireplace, an interesting assortment of giant urns and fountains worked within the equally inspired landscaping. And as you enter the restaurant from there, you'll experience a large see-thru acrylic floor with an unusual view of the planks below. This cool factor forms the floor of the large bar which, quite frankly, is one of the most relaxing you'll find. Any and every beverage known to man is concocted here too...and we love it!

So, if it's for a lunch or dinner inside, a business meeting or a summer evening happy hour or meal at the incredible outdoor bar and patio, make sure to experience this cool atmosphere restaurant. It's within a stone throw from the Crescent Court Hotel and the American Airlines Center, and it really is a special place. We are nuts for their fish sandwiches and flat bread gourmet (but affordable) delicacies. But virtually everything on the menu is very tasty and artfully presented. And really priced quite fairly. The Taco Trio is very interesting for lunch for only $10. And don't get us started on the wine selection. Wow.

So thank you Saint Ann Restaurant! And congratulations....because you have proven that quality in food, beverage, design and decor will always be very much in style!Saint Ann Restaurant is located at 2501 N.
