If you like Rapscallion and Boulevardier, check out new Hillside Tavern

The folks behind popular Dallas restaurants Rapscallion, Boulevardier and Veritas Wine Bar have opened another restaurant, Hillside Tavern, that feels tailor-made for its easy-going, family-friendly Lakewood neighborhood.

“The restaurant serves simple food done right, executed by a chef who knows what he’s doing and knows what customers want to eat and drink,” says Brooks Anderson, who owns the four restaurants with his brother Bradley and chef Nathan Tate.

What’s compelling on the menu? A muffuletta as good as any in New Orleans, a smoked mortadella sandwich, one of the city’s best smash burgers, plus classic cocktails, a dozen draft craft beers, and 48 wines whose low markups and reasonable prices (the heart of the list in $25-60) make ideal sippers for lazy days spent lingering on the restaurant’s shaded patio.

6465 East Mockingbird Ln., at Hillside Village Shopping Center. (214) 888-0152.
