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.

The Meddlesome Moth is a cool and classy beer-centered restaurant and bar in the upscale "Design District" area of Dallas. I was expecting a Ginger Man redux and was floored to find such a beautiful, well-designed space.
I love the bar area, where you can seat not only at the bar proper but at a slim long back bar overlooking the dining area (great for people watching).
Tons of beers on tap, with a bit of everything: Double Jack, Real Ale Kraken, North Coast Rasputin, Lakewood Temptress, Dogfish 90, Stone Sublimely, St Feuillien Speciale 2011... plus the biggest bottle selection I've seen in the DFW area! Lots of sours and rare brews.
The food is outstanding- we had a steak tartare and shishito peppers with goat cheese mousse, pricey but truly delicious. This is not your typical bar food!
Service at that back-bar area where we were was spotty, but it seems to be alright in the dining area and the bar itself.
Expensive all around, no doubt, but oh-so-worth-it. Shall return soon!
