State & Allen Kitchen+Bar is one of those Dallas neighborhood establishments that is as real and as effortlessly fun as the people who frequent it. A place for a quick cocktail, or impeccably prepared food accompanied by a selection from an impressive wine list. We are your living room away from home, where you can hang out on our patio and enjoy good drinks, catch a sports game on the big screen-and above all, have a great time with old friends while making new ones.
