A special treat. I took the time to study the menu(of beers) online before I got there. I always want to try something I haven't had before. The aged Scottish ales were on my radar and they did not disappoint. Remember Harviestoun.
Our party got "share" plates of food. I got to try different things and they were all good. I have been back and will be excited to return. Trying something new and different is exciting for this old timer.
I thought the wait staff were very knowledgeable about their beers and food. The gastropub itself was different. It was a crowded, busy evening my first time. The din was becoming unbearable for me and my wife. It may have been our seating location because the next time it didn't seem so loud.

The Moth is an absolutely must-visit spot in Dallas. I sat in both the huge indoor area and the also very large and beautiful patio, which are each great in their own way. The overall atmosphere is fairly upscale and the food is excellent.

The tap list is very impressive, with a cask on as well. They also have a nice big bottle list and a second bottle list with more limited selections and vintage selections that you have to ask for (be sure to ask for it, you won't regret it).

Service was very good and very friendly. Location is a touch out of the way, but if you are going to an event at the arena, it is only a 10-15 walk away.

The Meddlesome Moth is the best, closest-to-downtown beer bar Dallas has. Still, it's about two miles away. The atmosphere is Dallas chic--a modern bar with an open kitchen, which I appreciate for the smells wafting into the dining area.

It's a dark place with the bar to the left as you enter. The dining room, to the right, features tablecloths and trio of large stained glass lights that highlight early rock and roll legends (Chuck Berry, Elvis, but I can't identify the third--possibly Bill Haley). The bar is 20 yards long and became very, very busy as the night wore on.

The service was above and beyond--the bartender brought me eight different Texan micro bottles to consider.

For food, I ordered Tandoori Lamb, which was superb. The "raiti" sauce was like tzatziki and it was delicious.

Overall, this was a very good experience. My only wish is that it was closer to downtown.
