“This is certainly an upscale neighborhood restaurant, but the ambiance is sophisticated without a hint of snobbery. Small details like orange slices in the water and a complimentary bowl of crisp shoestring sweet potatoes add to the charm. All the seafood entrees we’ve tried have been outstanding.”

“This breezy timeless enclave is as appealing today as it was 25 years ago when the owner first opened the door.”

ascension The ever-budding neighborhood of Dallas Design District recently sprouted a new kind of coffee joint. Ascension does specialty coffee by day and turns into a wine bar at night, all the while dishing up paninis, hummus and a variety of internationally inspired plates.

Decked in light wood and trimmed in steel, Ascension feels like an independently-owned place you would find on the dense streets of San Francisco. Several walls have been converted into chalkboards that display daily specials, and notably none of the floor tiles match – a hodge-podge of white and charcoal stones makes for a quirky, yet lovable personality. The front façade of the building is windows, floor to ceiling, which allow the space to fill with a natural light during the day. At night, car headlights twinkle passed Oak Lawn Ave. like specs of light dispelled from the downtown skyscrapers. Key Magazine • July 2013 •


Perhaps the most difficult decision you’ll have to make at Ascension is which way you prefer you’re coffee. This is not a cream or sugar decision; it’s a matter of how you want your coffee brewed. Ascension offers single-origin cups (beans from a singular plantation), as well as four methods of “slow brewing.” Needless to say, the bar looks like a science lab of caffeinated madness. Any coffee guru will swoon for the nutty and smoky flavors this shop produces by the cup. The drinks are of such high quality, in fact, that even a more seasoned latte drinker can down a cup of Joe in its blackest state. (The lattes, by the way, are perfect in both texture and taste.) Where Ascension really shines, however, is in their espresso. Try a cortado or shot for best results.

Looking for something more low-key? Grab a bottle of wine and dinner. Bottles of wine are moderately priced, ranging from $32 to $62 a piece. Prices range from $8 to $15 by the glass. Ascension offers “Conversational Plates,” essentially appetizers for sharing, including hummus and cheese plates (cheese rotates so be sure to ask your server). Hungrier patrons can indulge in the Shrimp Mozambique – sautéed shrimp with garlic, onion, cilantro and parsley in a spicy Portuguese “Mozambique” broth – or the Marquez Sausage – Moroccan lamb sausage with warm white bean salad. Whatever your pleasure, be sure to stop and enjoy the sociable atmosphere of Ascension. With good drinks, good food and good people, there is no way you can go wrong.
