300 East is a Dilworth mainstay for good reason. The food is excellent and affordable, and the service is top-notch. Whether it is date night, lunch with the ladies, or a baby shower (It was all adults … it really isn’t a great place for kids.) like the one that was given for me there a few years ago, 300 East is a favorite of mine.
Get anything on the menu; it is all good. My favorites include the Sweet Potato Ravioli, Fall Salad, Black Bean and Green Chile Chicken Tortilla, and whatever the special is that day. Get the Housemade Pimento Cheese as an app while you are at it. This piece of advice comes from a girl who doesn’t even like Pimento Cheese, so you know it is good stuff.
When you head to the restrooms, look carefully and you’ll notice the cheeky sense of humor that defines the coziness of the place on the bathroom doors. Look extra carefully if you have imbibed their signature Wong cocktail. It goes down (too) easily, and they are so strong that patrons are limited to two per sitting.
They are extra accommodating at 300 East of those who are eating gluten-free, and the patio out front is a garden oasis on busy East Boulevard. Because the food, service and atmosphere are so delicious, be sure to make a reservation or be prepared to wait a bit during busy times. It’s worth it.
