rise n°1 is a 92-seat salon de soufflé and wine bar, located in the heart of landmark retail center Inwood Village. A relaxed bistro focused on the soufflé – the masterpiece of French cuisine – rise n°1 is the first of its kind, bringing the French classic to Dallas diners in a comfortable, casual environment.
A fluffy baked dish made with egg yolks and beaten egg whites, the soufflé can be eaten as a savory main dish at rise n°1 (ham and Gruyere, creamed spinach, goat cheese, smoked salmon, blue cheese, truffle-infused wild mushroom) or as a sweet dessert (chocolate, Grand Marnier, raspberry, bread-pudding, and apricot). They're so delicious and light … We think you'll want both. Menu here.
And thanks to cutting-edge ovens from France, you won't have to wait around long to enjoy one. In the spirit of European dining, we encourage you to linger. But if you have a time constraint, don't fret … We can prepare your soufflé in the same amount of time it takes to cook a steak to medium. Bravo!
In addition to soufflés, rise n°1 also serves fromage (the finest selection of local and French artisanal cheeses), vin et champagne (flights of wine and bubbly from afar) and petite assiettes (small plates of classic French fare for every palate, from salad nicoise and steamed artichokes with sauce Andree to steak pomme de terre and brie & cornichon sandwiches).
Enjoy an "assiette de fromage" and a glass of wine in front of the fireplace on our outdoor patio. Curl up with a savory soufflé while reading a recycled French or American classic in our in-house library. Dip your spoon into a dessert soufflé and relish how sweet life can be. We hope rise n°1 becomes your "maison" away from home. … Mais oui!
