Plano is a Food Mecca

Plano is a Food Mecca

North Texas has a lot of great things about it, but I think one of the best things is that it’s filled with lots of charming cities around the metroplex. Plano, Texas which is located just north of Dallas, is among one of my favorites to visit when I want to retreat.

Fact: my favorite thing about visiting Plano is the fact that I can escape to it whenever I need a break from the big city. It’s far enough out to where you feel like you can retreat, but close enough to where you can still run home and check on things if you need to.

So if you follow along with me on Instagram, you all know that when I travel I love to find gems that are only found in that town or city. It was my first time trying or even hearing of the Biscuit Bar in The Boardwalk at Granite Park, but they have some of the best biscuits I’ve had in my life and their Holiday Style tots are such a treat because they taste just like the sweet potato casserole you have at Thanksgiving! It’s such a wonderful area to eat and let the kids roam.

Legacy has been in Plano for years now, but recently they’ve added Legacy West, which in addition to already having pretty amazing restaurants has added a Renaissance. Such a gorgeous hotel, with a modern western feel and a great view of Legacy and all of Plano. Their cabanas and poolside menu are so fresh too!

Legacy Food Hall is a food Mecca for those that love to eat and have a ton to choose from. It’s the perfect mix of fine dining with casual vibes with renown chefs like Tiffany Derry who created the concept for Roots Chicken Stack. This food hall has a lot going on with three stories of food, but one of the coolest things about it though is the Box Garden, which is the newest addition. I enjoyed my drink while sitting and watching Sarah Jaffe perform for their grand opening.


Among the many places to dine in Plano, having an aesthetically pleasing place to brunch is a priority and Sixty Vines is definitely at the top of that list. Not only is this place design goals, but the food here is delectable too! I would definitely recommend this place for a girls brunch or even a Sunday funday. Their cheese and charcuterie board is delicious and big enough to share, and they have a great variety of wines and options for brunch, lunch and dinner! I was not disappointed by anything that entered my mouth.

As you can see, there’s lots to do (and especially eat in Plano), and you can check out Visit Plano for more information on where to stay, eat, and play in Plano!
