The newest restaurant in town is opening and it is full of spectacular stories that raised not only the concept but the very menu itself according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,
“The Bobbie’s menu is dotted with other family stories. A shredded cheddar appetizer called Oaks Dip ($10) is a longtime recipe from Mary Lucille’s family. The Bobbie’s team classed it up with horseradish, serrano and scallions, but after months of R-and-D, it’s still served with Fritos Scoops.”
Crispy Oysters ($22 at lunch, $24 at dinner) are another zippy, shareable appetizer. They’re served on the half shell in a smear of garlic aioli. The crabcake ($38 at lunch, $39 at dinner) is simple, with big lumps of crab sitting atop lemon-dill sauce. It comes with house-made french fries, so customers can drag them through the sauce.
And of course, Bobbie’s owner, Robert Quick, and the COO, Matt Gottlieb, couldn’t be any prouder as they proudly highlight its friendly, warm and inviting ambiance and atmosphere according to a CultureMap Dallas article which says,
“In a statement, COO Matt Gottlieb calls Bobbie’s “your new neighborhood go-to.”
“Whether it’s a salad and glass of wine on the patio at lunch, a bite and a cocktail at the bar during date-night, or family dinner, there is something on the menu for anyone and any occasion,” Gottlieb says.
“We live in this neighborhood, as do our families, and we saw the need for a place like this,” Quick says. “Preston and Royal is an iconic Dallas intersection. With the revitalization of the area, everything looks different. Preserving a piece of Dallas history was important to us. You’ll see the original “Airway” sign hanging above our kitchen window, and nods to the golden age of aviation and classic Preston Hollow neighborhood culture throughout the space, whether through design details, art, architecture or menu.”
Accordingly, it was Robert Quick’s wife, Mary Lucille Quick, who participated in the designing of the restaurant. She even took pieces of their very home’s artworks to the restaurant!
