Wife and I wanted to try something new so we stopped by Century Square to check on Poppy's and, if we didn't like the menu, just go to Canteen. We picked Poppy's.

Very interesting restaurant that is a great addition to this area. They serve fairly small meat portions (about 4 oz) with some veggies for $10-14 a plate. The meats are not your typical gourmet meats. The night we went for example: boar, skate wing, quail, halibut, pork cheek in addition to more common stuff like beef tenderloin, chicken & dumplings. The veggies and meat we had (boar & skate wing and split a plate of veggies) were all top notch. They have a good variety of microbrews on draft (about 10), wines (I'm not a wine person no idea what the options are) and they had a full bar that I didn't take advantage of this visit.

It is a very different restaurant but well worth a visit if you want something outside of the typical fine dining experience.

Did they leave the view of the restaurant open to the pool? Looked nice before opened but wonder if it will be awkward during the summer.

Wife and I went last night as well for date night. It was a cool atmosphere and the view to the pool was still open. We had the conversation about how awkward it would be to be swimming while people were eating and staring. The food was different but good. We felt like we were back in Dallas and not CS.

We went a few weeks ago. Service was fantastic. Our meats were great, but the veggie accompaniments were meh. I appreciated the concept of small portions of upscale food. It was fun to try a variety of things.
