Dallas: Dive

Told you a couple days ago I had a late lunch at Dive today and I'm swooning over the food, the staff, the interior, everything. Now I know why this spot in the old Ball's Hamburger space was jam-packed at 1pm and the wait for a table was 10-15 minutes. The counter-service-only restaurant was filled with no less than a dozen gorgeous moms from my son's school, lots of cute SMU students, assorted suits, and Tread co-owners Brandon Wall and Bart Fassino.
I had the ahi tuna wrap - a seared tuna filet wrapped inside a spinach tortilla and filled with a small amount of coconut rice and loads of avocado and served with dipping sauces on the side - and an iced tea (they have the best ice, that tiny crunchy pebble kind). Some of my friends had the fish tacos, the crab salad, and shrimp tacos and everyone said the same thing: Why hadn't a place like this opened earlier?
The food is healthy and the staff was over-the-top helpful with securing us a table and refilling our glasses with tea. They also have a kid's corner off to the side where little ones can occupy themselves while you order and a kids menu that includes a crudite plate. I promise you I'll be back later this week for more. Who's in?


  1. I'm in! Love the sound of this place & can't wait to visit.

  2. The food is so good! I'm up for going anytime!
