Ida Claire Midnight Brunch

Last weekend I was invited to an exclusive “Midnight Brunch” at the new and intriguing “Ida Claire” in Addison. When I looked at photos online I knew this is a place I would love. Let’s start with the fact that they have an adorable Airstream trailer you can dine in and hold private events that is decked out in colorful prints and patterns covering the interior- I mean how cool? (It was giving me serious Austin vibes…) The trailer is situated on their full service garden patio that not only bellies up to one side of the bar, but has a huge projector screen where they show their favorite movies at night. They immediately scored extra brownie points from me when I spotted Almost Famous playing in the background.

Now what is this Ida Claire midnight brunch, you ask? Exactly what it sounds like. They’re serving brunch. At midnight. 11pm-2am to be exact. Like many residents in Dallas, I love me some brunch. Now that there is a spot offering all of your favorite southern dishes with a unique spin on them late at night, you don’t have to wait until the morning to satisfy that brunch craving! Take a look at what we tried…

I’d also like to note that our servers were outstanding. We were a few large tables so we mainly saw two particular servers the entire evening but I was so impressed with their happy attitude and knowledge of the menu. Ida Claire’s cocktail list is rather large and I felt our server knew every single one of them and was able to make multiple recommendations based on everyone’s likes and dislikes at the table. It’s amazing how having a fun server can affect your dining experience so much! Here are a few of the Ida Claire cocktails we tried…

I highly recommend checking Ida Claire out. I know I will be back soon for cocktails on the patio and a movie! To read more about local Dallas happy hours, click here! Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
