Bonnie Ruth’s: A Piece of Paris Just Down the Street

When spring comes to Paris the humblest mortal alive must feel that he dwells in paradise. ~~ Henry Miller

While we can’t all visit Paris, Frisco residents know that a corner of the Shops at Starwood houses a slice of Parisian magic. Bonnie Ruth’s has a particular penchant for transporting its visitors from Frisco to Europe with the visuals, sounds, flavors, and moods of one of the world’s most romantic cities.

Since 2006, when a trip to Paris inspired the creation of Bonnie Ruth’s, the family-owned restaurant has served up the flavors of France using the finest techniques, a carefully curated menu, and premium ingredients.

Over the years, we have added American and Italian favorites that everyone can enjoy while still staying true to classic French technique.  – Liz Brown, Owner of Bonnie Ruth’s

Bonnie Ruth’s may be best known for their bakery and patisserie – authentic Parisian flavors crafted by one of the best-known bakers in town. However, their menu boasts an extensive and excellent lunch and dinner along with a wide-ranging wine and cocktail list.

During dinner, the drunken pear and goat cheese salad is a favorite, while their pour commencer lunch options offer a variety of remarkable tastes and flavors including a fantastic cheese board as well as salads and sandwiches that could only originate from the streets of Paris. The weekend brunch is a special trademark and a must-not-miss for every Frisco resident and French food lover.

One of the characteristics that sets Bonnie Ruth’s apart is their exquisite patio, which includes a striking fireplace, lush plant life, fully-grown trees, curated lighting, and high walls that provide visitors with an intimate escape from the bustle of the town. Owner Liz Brown says… 

“Our belle epoque inspired design on the interior is comfortable and reminiscent of a quintessential French bistro and our food is firmly rooted in French technique with classically trained chefs. While Frisco has a wonderful selection of restaurants, our space truly transports you to the city of love and lights… Not something easily found in North Texas.”

Bonnie Ruth’s is firmly rooted in the Frisco community, committed to remaining engaged in community events and community outreach while providing North Texas with tastes and a menu found nowhere else.

Spring is a special time at Bonnie Ruth’s as the space hosts wedding showers, baby showers, weddings, graduation celebrations, prom season, and a host of other precious moments. The custom menus, private rooms, and exquisitely crafted desserts make it the perfect location for any celebration.

Currently, Bonnie Ruth’s is working to expand their catering program to serve a host of events from elegant dinner parties or corporate lunches that demand a special “wow” factor. Bonnie Ruth’s ownership remains committed, as with every other aspect of their restaurant, to creating an experience and menu that is incomparable.

And, Bonnie Ruth’s menu shifts with the seasons.

“Our goal has always been to innovate seasonally. Our chef recently added 10 new must-try items to our menu, including some modern dishes with unique twists, as well as savory plays on traditional French cuisine.”

The cocktail and wine list are updated seasonally as well, while of course, favorite main-stays are always an option on the menu.
