The holidays are quickly approaching - AKA friends and family start coming to town and it's your job to entertain them. We know how crazy busy this time of year gets, so we rounded up our favorite places to wine and dine across Dallas-Fort Worth this winter! With much of the BabeCrew being avid foodies, we all have our favorite spots in the metroplex for fine dining, a weekend brunch, happy hours and everything in between.

WHERE TO BRUNCH:

Known for their baked-to-order biscuits and innovative twists on classic meals, Fixe is one of @buddylovesbre's favorite brunch spots! Bre recommends the fish and chips, shrimp and grits and bloody marys. (One of the best bloody marys she's ever had!)

Fort Worth, TX 76109
When discussing our favorite brunch spots, @buddylovespaige screamed Le Bilboquet from across the office. Let's just say she's passionate about this place. You may think you've stepped into a quaint European city but rest assured, you're still in Dallas! From the brunch menu, Paige recommends the Chicken Sandwich and Brioche French Toast.

WHERE TO HANG:

One of the newest and largest outdoor patios in Dallas, this beer garden is a VIBE. Jaxon Beer Garden offers elevated Texas cuisine, 40 regional craft beers on tap and so much more. It's quickly become many of the Babe's favorite outdoor hangout spot!
