I can see Trinity Groves being the model that more cities will adapt. It’s a cool concept that takes former industrial warehouses and revamps them to house restaurants, retail businesses and eventually office and residential space. It’s a one stop shop where everyone can choose what they want to eat from a variety of options like sushi, tapas, BBQ, Italian, and so much more.
We had lunch at Babb Brothers BBQ & Blues. The meat was tender and had just the right amount of sweet smoke flavor. I got brisket and a piece of fried catfish. The mac n’ cheese with green chilis was tasty. The husband had ribs and we also tried the smoked turkey which was our daughters favorite. The restaurant itself is a big open cafeteria type setting. They have a stage set up for weekend blues entertainment. It can get noisy in there but it was pretty mellow on a Sunday afternoon.
We came back after a visit to The Dallas World Aquarium to try Cake Bar and I’m sure glad we did. The only problem with Cake Bar is too many choices. We split 3 slices between 4 of us and had some leftover. The pina colada was my favorite. Sweet, tart, cream cheese icing. It hit all the right notes. Our daughter loved the neapolitan but I’m not sure if it was the 3 colors or the actual flavors themselves. The hummingbird was my second favorite. I had always wanted to try it since it’s a classic Southern cake.
You can certainly buy a whole cake if that’s your fancy or make it a point to sample different slices. The key lime looked tempting too. Point is, you will definitely have a reason to go back.
