The 5 Best New Restaurants in Town
2017 has already gifted Dallas with a healthy crop of new restaurants. From a laid-back coffee spot serving breakfast and lunch to a downtown Dallas beauty soon to be the hottest place to fuel up before or after a shopping spree, here are five eateries that are causing quite a stir (or shall we say Stirr?) around town.
This popular Cali spot had finally made its way to the Lone Star State. The restaurant features a rotating menu with fresh fish flown in daily from Orange County, more than 20 local brews on tap and a 2,000-square-foot patio. Who said anything about being landlocked?
1920 McKinney Ave.; 214-306-7111 or watergrill.com
It’s about time this side of East Dallas got a little love. Located across from the Dallas Arboretum, this chic farmhouse serves up chef-driven plates and pit-master smoked meats. Balance your brisket intake with the pickled beet and goat cheese salad.
8602 Garland Rd.; 469-776-5655 or smokyrose.com
It’s an all-American eatery serving up inspired dishes like roasted Texas quail and a lobster claw omelette (mmm). But if we’re being honest, the highlight of this Deep Ellum restaurant is the temperature-controlled rooftop bar overlooking the Dallas skyline.
2803 Main St. #110; 214-983-1222 or stirrdallas.com
Sylvan Thirty’s favorite coffee shop is now serving breakfast. Nothin’ flashy—just simple and delicious staples (think bacon, eggs and pulled pork). And don’t worry, in true Oak Cliff fashion, the veggie sandwich comes on hippie loaf.
1878 Sylvan Ave. E150; 214-238-2643 or houndstoothcoffee.com
Located on the fourth floor of the new Forty Five Ten on Main, this sophisticated spot is bound for greatness. From the 11-foot floor-to-ceiling windows to the wraparound terrace, this is what downtown dining should look like. Although it’s just a lunch and cocktail spot for now, a dinner menu is expected to be rolled out soon.
