Townhouse Kitchen + Bar Now Open at the Galleria (Photos)

Imagine walking into a restaurant to the sounds of Def Leppard's "Pour Some Sugar on Me." Now imagine walking into a restaurant to the sounds of Lady Gaga's latest hit.

Were they the same places? Of course not.

Which is why it may behoove Townhouse Kitchen + Bar at the Galleria to reconsider its playlist. Especially since neither of those songs matched the new restaurant's clientele of upscale shoppers and a few husbands who threw in the towel flipping through their iPads.

On a positive note, the bartender was one of the genuinely nicest women I've encountered at a restaurant in a long time.

Townhouse is very trendy and modern. Half restaurant and half bar, it boasts a nice selection of draft beers and stand out appetizers, including duck quesadillas served with blueberry-lime salsa and short rib sliders with horseradish pickles. Entrees feature dishes like pecan pork shops with a bourbon glaze, shrimp and grits, an Asian turkey burger with pho spices and sriracha aioli sauce, and kimchi duck tacos. Yup, kimchi duck tacos.

Townhouse is managed by the Restaurants-America, who also owns PrimeBar in Uptown.

I've only heard great things about this place. Can't wait to get my girlfriends together and check it out!

What a disappointment.  You expect a brand new restaurant to be on their game, its such a competitive industry, especially in Addison.  The wine by the glass list was poor (might as well have been Outback or Chilis wines). Saturday night, not busy (that should have been indicator), waited at bar for service, waited way to long at table for waiter to greet, get drinks, & finally order.  Blueberry salsa for duck quesadillas, bad. Nutella Bread pudding was just gross, and the bacon donut dessert was interesting, but weird and not totally awesome, which it should be, if you're going to go there with bacon.  Waiter forgot my fries. Drunk girl in bar disrupting, that should have been asked by management to leave.  Overall, a huge disappointment.

The place looks so extravagant. I would love to visit this place one day. Nice inspiration in building one.

Galleria=poison for a REGULAR person.   Let the yuppies, tollway trolls and $30,000. millionaires have that place!  If'n I want to have my ass whipped by the Kergie wife, I'll just go to Fairview, and have a nice drinky drink while she's shops.  We tried it (shopping ) during Christmas, and boy howdy, it drained ALL the lifeforce from my Kergie soul.  Then we ate at a food court while shopping (shoppin' makes ya frickin' stahhhhvin'!), and the food tasted like treated lumber.  I'm done with shoppin' til next November, "unlessin'" I need a good pair of Columbia shorts, or a new grill.  AND you men that enjoy shopping......I'm not gonna even say it; cause it is going to hurt yer girlie feelin's. We had a male relative that came down from the midwest, to shop IN Dallas; and man oh man was he excited!  My kids and I were just looking at him, wondering just wondering.  Can you imagine taking a trip to go shopping-in Dallas!?  See folks, there are people more "country" than here.

Kergie out.

when will restaurants learn that in their efforts not to offend anyone with bland music, they offend EVERYONE with bland non-offensive music - the worst kind of music.

I have Always said that!  Who wants to dine with the dulcet smoky sounds of jazzy 1978 in the backround? Atleast have the sack to play Young Jeezy, or Anthrax.  What's better than have a NICE piece of chicken parmesan, penne pasta and a rich glass of Cabernet with Black Flag as the ambiance? Better yet, how about a lemon chicken breast with white wine sauce, rice pilaf and the MC5 blasting, and as you and yours hold a romantic gaze?
