The Old Monk has bagged the 'Best of Dallas' title, by the Dallas Observer, for three consecutive years. The decor is based on a monastery concept - wooden walls, wooden floor and wooden plank tables. The beer list is not what you can call extensive, but do try the Belgian beer on your visit to the place. Charming waitresses bring you large portions of anything that you order (Mussels Fritas are highly recommended). The place attracts a sophisticated crowd and is the best venue to catch up on old friends over a few glasses of beer.
