Last week we were ecstatic to host luxury villa rental and travel consultancy company LuxeBae as they treated local bloggers and influencers to a girlfriend’s getaway day in Dallas. The day kicked off with brunch on the patio at Mercat Bistro followed by shopping, style shoots, pool lounging and more. The ladies at LuxeBae curated a perfect #GFGetaway for the group as they traveled all around Dallas.

The Parisian atmosphere, friendly faces, and stunning décor make it an easy choice when planning any weekend. Mercat Bistro is especially suited to start your girl’s getaway or staycation this summer, here’s four reasons why we’ll be seeing you on the patio in no time. 

1. Peché Mignon

The Peché Mignon at Mercat Bistro is everything you love about summer all wrapped up into one beautiful cocktail. First, we start with a frozen ball of our favorite mixed berries and a little pineapple orange juice. Then we pour Crème de Violette Liqueur and either champagne or rosé tableside into your glass over the frozen fruit. As the frozen ball begins to break up and melt away, your delectable drink gets tastier and tastier. Every sip is just a little different from the one you took before. 

2.    Unique teacups & saucers

Throughout HARWOOD we are firm believers that the beauty is in the details at all of our restaurants. Brunch at Mercat Bistro means your lattes, teas and coffees all come in unique teacups discovered from all over the world. Our team spends weekends scouring through vintage shops to uncover unique and different patterns for all the dishes in the restaurant. The fun and beautiful patterns make your food (and your photos) look even more irresistible.

3.    Spring Fling DJ Brunches

On select Saturdays throughout spring and summer, Mercat Bistro is turning up the music on their patio for the Spring Fling. Toast your rosé to the sounds of Paul Paredes of THE FEELS. This high energy DJ fuses a varied and ever expanding set of influences – ranging from underground house, electro, and outright pop – the result of which refuses to be confined to a single genre.

The remaining Spring Fling dates are June 25th and July 23rd – gather your friends, make a reservation, and we’ll see you on the patio. 

4.    Pastries worth craving

All the great brunches at Mercat Bistro begin with a pastry basket. Sip your latte and take a sweet bite of an almond croissant, chocolate croissant, blueberry muffin or another one of the scrumptious baked goodies. Each basket comes with an assortment of four freshly made pastries for your sampling pleasure.
