As SMU students, we know our Saturdays and Sundays usually include some type of brunching activities. Well known for its great restaurants, Dallas is a perfect place for brunchers, as well all know. But one blog (and great group of peps) is merging the best of both [dallas] worlds; brunch + fashion. I sat down with Dallas Does Brunch‘s editor, the darling Katie Sarah Roberts, and chatted about DDB and what we have to look forward too!
MCK: What is your inspiration for the blog?
KSR: We came up with the idea initially as a joke! DDB Co-Founder Lucy Sosa and I were at The Common Table, and after a few Bloody Marys we joked about starting a blog to justify our brunch rendezvous. After seriously entertaining the idea for a bit, we realized that we were actually onto something!
MCK: Will you cover different topics besides the brunch scene? If so what do you have in mind?
KSR: Although DDB focuses on the Dallas brunch experience, we don’t want to limit ourselves. We encourage our contributing writers to think outside the box when pitching story ideas— and we’re open to covering ‘different’ topics that still relate back to food or fashion in some way.
MCK: Is it just you that manages and creates content for your blog?
KSR: Right now Lucy and I are mainly responsible for managing the content on our blog and social media accounts. However, we do accept contributed content, and credit all contributors for their work.
MCK: Can you explain your brunch style in a few words?
KSR: Comfortable & Spontaneous. What I wear is never planned out —It’s very “in the moment” and comes together organically. The only requirement is that my outfit must be comfortable enough to get away with consuming copious amounts of food and adult beverages
MCK: Funniest thing you have seen while brunching?
KSR: People in snuggies, or girls in stiletto pumps.
MCK: What’s on the DDB list to try?
KSR: We literally have a list of 40+ restaurants on our list to try. Right now I would say Terilli’s, Zaza Sunday School brunch, and The Libertine Bar are at the top. We also look forward to trying places that are more “off the beaten path” for SMU students, like Penne Pomodoro and Café Brazil (pardon my sarcasm).
MCK: And your favorite brunch spot is….
KSR: I have to give a shout out to The Common Table! Without brunching there, Dallas Does Brunch might not have existed!
So whether you you’re on the Blue umbrella team or prefer the across the street team, Red umbrellas, DDB will have you covered on styles of Dallas brunchors and brunchettes who hit the best spots in town.
