Rise n°1 Salon de Soufflé, a French restaurant in Dallas, experienced a busy Valentine’s Day after surviving pandemic lows, according to a Dallas Morning News article. They say,
“Good things happen even in the worst of times. Three years ago, the world as we knew it shifted from its axis as COVID-19 brought on a statewide stay-at-home lockdown. Thousands of North Texas businesses fell into pandemic oblivion. Other owners faced down their companies’ near-death experiences and came out in better shape today. This is one in a series of stories about five such business owners.
Rise n°1 Salon de Soufflé, or simply Rise, was packed on Valentine’s Day with couples enjoying a romantic soiree at the Dallas restaurant known for its French cuisine, wine and intimate atmosphere.
Over the course of the day – a rolling lunch to dinner – Rise served 462 people. The tiny Inwood Village eatery had been jammed with extra tables for two.”
Rise’s menu offers a delectable selection of French cuisine with an extensive variety of soufflés, salads, sandwiches, and sweet treats.
- Salad Niçoise
- Large rise Salad
- Parisian Jambon Sandwich
- Brie & Cornichon Baguettes
- Seared Ahi Tuna Steak
- Steak & Pomme de Terre
Before COVID, Rise served 300-500 customers daily, but during the pandemic, having 60 patrons was a good day.
