The Second Floor Restaurant Review

: Under the direction of executive chef Scott Gottlich and sommelier Gina Gottlich, executive chef Andrea Maricich creates elegant, crowd-pleasing plates for breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner at this sleek and intimate hotel restaurant and bar completely enclosed in glass inside The Westin Galleria Dallas. The menu is seasonal and the seating is limited in the dining room, but the diverse menu means you can go as fancy or casual as you want and choose from the filet mignon with black truffles and silky béarnaise to a rustic, crisp-crusted pizza topped with duck confit and piquillo peppers. There’s also a selection of house-made pastas, including pillowy gnocchi crafted with Texas goat cheese, and a few seafood dishes like miso-glazed Scottish salmon with baby bok choy, or shrimp and grits with chorizo-brandy butter. Gina’s well-curated wine list includes a selection of lively sparkling wines and an extensive half-bottle line-up; there’s also domestic, Texan and import beers, and a craft cocktail menu featuring sangría and an array of after-dinner coffee drinks.
