About the restaurant
San Martin began in 1974
With a small bakery and a big dream: to be the best. It's easy to say this, and sometimes it sounds cliché, but when you like what you do, everything points in the same direction. This is what has made us focus on offering high-quality products and a variety of bread, pastries, cakes, and coffee.

We are an innovative group, and our main goal is to satisfy our customers through high-quality products, fresh and freshly baked bread and pastries, and exceptional service. We are a unique café and bakery concept where our customers have direct contact with the best and a wide variety of bread, pastries, snacks, cookies, cakes, and casual dining in a calm and cozy environment.

My mom and I used to go on special dates to the Neiman Marcus Cafe when I was a little girl. I took my her this week for a belated Mother’s Day lunch. It was such a sweet time. Our server was friendly and kind, the food was cooked to perfection, and the warm popovers were such a treat! Thank you for your consistency and excellence over the years!

Deep Ellum
About the restaurant
Located in Dallas’ newly-minted East Quarter neighborhood,
National Anthem will feature a variety of riffs on classic new
American. The space yearns for food that touches vintage but with a modern approach. You can
expect elements of both coasts with a straight-forward Texas sensitivity, hopefully capturing the
vibes of a big-city, downtown dining room.

National Anthem is housed within the Magnolia Oil building located at the intersection of Commerce
Street, Jackson Street, and Cesar Chavez Boulevard. The building was originally built in 1920 by the
Magnolia Petroleum Company, later renamed Mobil Oil.

Fun Facts:
• The triangular architechture of the building is known as a “flatiron” design.
• The angles of the trianglular shape of Town Hearth and the Magnolia Oil Building are within 2
degrees of one another.
• From the rooftop patio, customers will have clean sight lines of Downtown, Uptown, Deep Ellum,
and the Farmer’s Market.

Finally got a chance to come eat here. Since they share owners with NHS, decided to try something else. The egg rolls and cauliflower bites were really good!

We have been going to Woodlands American Grill since it opened some 20 years ago. One of the main reason I go for lunch and or dinner is the ambience, service and food which is superior. We have been to several other restaurants near Woodlands American Grill and none of them compare . We have highly recommended to our friends to try Woodlands American Grill. We always look forward to lunch and or dinner at Woodlands as we know the service and food will always be great Kind Regards Tim Carnell
