The Nicolett opened in downtown Lubbock in November of 2020 and has quickly become one of the best fine dining spots in town. They recently announced the addition of a new Chef's Tasting Menu as well as brunch. I know personally that Lubbock, Texas adores brunch and I'm reminded every weekend when I'm bombarded by invitations from friends.

Lubbock has never been particularly well-known for our fine dining, but a quick glance at a sample menu from The Nicolett may change the way you feel about food locally. The photos, albeit beautiful, don't quite do justice to the uniqueness of a restaurant such as this in our little-big town.

A Glance At The Nicolett

The prices are quite reasonable for such elegance, making it a perfect spot to take a first date and really impress them, or even somewhere to celebrate an anniversary or a promotion at work. The cocktail menu is absolutely stunning and has many options that you won't find in your average dinner spot around town, like the Desert Margarita, the Ranchito, and the Garden Martini.
