Rise No.1 at 5360 West Lovers Ln #220 Dallas, TX 75209.
Neither Andrea, Kristine, or I had tried this place before, but we were really excited. We had looked up a few restaurants online, and Rise was the most intriguing while also staying within our budgets.
We all ordered the Chocolate Souffle, $12. This was bigger than we expected, but it certainly wasn’t enough to be split among three people (we were quite full from earlier that day. Don’t judge us!). It’s a fine portion for two people to split after having an entree, but yeah, we made work of it quite quickly. It was really good! The souffle wasn’t overbearingly chocolately. It was distinctly chocolatey but not so much that it was too much. for those who do prefer a bit more chocolate, the souffle comes with a rich dark chocolate sauce. It was delicious! The server had to bring us another small pot of the chocolate sauce. The sauce on top of the souffle was mega delicious. The texture was vaguely eggy (as it should be) and really soft. It was really enjoyable. I would very much recommend it. :)
OMG the bread! It was really good as well. Actually, I think we all enjoyed the bread more than the souffle. The bread was crunchy and salty on the outside, but so soft and fluffy on the inside. The bread-cutter was totally a plus. It was like a paper-cutter, only for bread. I became quite obsessed with using it. The homemade butter was excellent and a perfect compliment to the bread. It was the best butter I’ve ever tasted! I think Andrea, Kristine, and I now understand why Paula Deen loves butter so much. We all have a new appreciation for the food lipid.
I totally recommend Rise No. 1. Everything on the menu looks really delicious. Even the oddly named “Marshmallow Soup” is a very popular item at Rise. I am eager to try it if I ever have the chance to go again. :) I would go again just for the bread. ;P
