Sure, Downtown Dallas has its bright points: We love the ever-burgeoning Arts District, not to mention the mother ship of fashion, Neiman Marcus.
But the area has become even sweeter in the past week. That’s because The Hospitality Sweet has opened its long-anticipated stand-alone cafeteria of confections in the iconic post office and former federal courthouse building at 400 N. Ervay St.
We’ve loved Meghan Adams’s delicate desserts ever since we discovered them tucked away in the Brit-furnishings wonderland Timothy Oulton. Now, Downtown denizens can rejoice in her feathery-light macarons and signature mini treats (think turtle brownie bites and key lime tartlets) before work, at lunch or on coffee breaks.
For the ambience alone, it’s worth sneaking out of the office to check out the darling digs, housed in the lobby of the meticulously renovated historic building amid wrought-iron detailing and rehabbed marble floors.
And while she has staked her name on sweet things, Adams’s savory bites are just as delicious. The brisket sandwich ($9), tender beef topped with cool and creamy coleslaw and served on Empire Baking Company bread, tastes as good as it looks. A side of corn-and-pepper-studded orzo and fruit with Romanoff sauce are perfect complements.
Ladies who lunch, indeed.
