Taking roots in the re-energized historic Deep Ellum area, Zåtar draws a fine line between simple and luxurious.


The beautiful eatery features a large, covered outdoor terrace and a chic indoor environment. Rustic decor, glittering chandeliers, and cozy booths add to the lively music and festive ambience of the Lebanese eatery.
Eating in Lebanon is tied to gatherings, and Zåtar is armed with a passion to bring the essence of that vibrant culture to Dallas. The word zåtar is a staple of traditional Lebanese cuisine and culture. It refers to both the Levantine oregano plant and the spice blend where the plant takes center stage. At Dallas’ Zåtar, the warm vibes, positive atmosphere, and exquisite menu bring that Lebanese vibrancy.

Let’s start with the exquisite brunch. As you walk in, the service is divine as you are seated and greeted by the staff. A basket of warm croissants is placed in the center. The chocolate croissant is to die for as you break it open and warm cocoa oozes out of the flaky crust.
After you enjoy a warm croissant, you discover the twist Zåtar brings to Dallas’ typical boozy brunch. Ladies, try the frosé. It’s frosty, pink, and fun to drink! They also infuse their mimosas with rose water that gives off a fresh, beautiful scent.

When getting to the main course, you can go with the breakfast tacos or venture to the ‘Mother of all pies.’ The pie features minced meat, a cheese stuffed crust, and is topped with two eggs baked to perfection. It is SO good and shareable. As a side, the fried Brussels sprouts mixed with grapes, walnuts, and balsamic are a must!

If you’re going for dinner, indulge in Siyadiyeh, a traditional Lebanese dish consisting of roasted mahi-mahi with caramelized rice and onions paired with La Vie-En-Rose (Hendricks gin, Dolin Blanc, rose water spritz). End your dinner with a splurge. The Kenefeh at Zåtar will bring zen to your tastebuds. The Kenefeh is a warm cheesecake with semolina crust, served with orange blossom syrup. Um… Yum!
