When Oddfellows brought in chef Anastacia Quiñones to introduce a dinner menu, Bishop Arts had no idea what it was in for. The all-day-breakfast diner, famous for coffee, waffles and hipster patrons, is now even better at dinnertime. Indeed, the fabled brunches that drove gentrifying Oak Cliff types to stand in hourlong lines Sunday mornings are getting a little uneven. The service is, too. But dinner at Oddfellows has been so thoroughly transformed that one can’t help hoping Quiñones and her crew feel liberated to serve whatever the hell they want, at any time of day. A crab tostadita starter ($12) nicely illustrates the quality of the new dinner menu: tostadas small enough to be glorified crackers, piled up with crab meat, avocados and lettuce. It’s a refreshing, bright bite of food, big enough for a weight-watching meal. Farro is on the menu in three places, including a risotto, with good reason: The kitchen does this tough-to-cook grain consistently right. Try the farro salad, with avocado, pea shoots and tangy lemony dressing, plus a few bonus slices of cucumber and radish. A capellini pasta dish with invigorating house-made arugula pesto and half-molten chunks of mozzarella is another patio fare winner Need something more gluttonous? Go for the shrimp and grits.
