6 Dallas Restaurants to Hit Up Before Everyone Hears About Them
All the pastrami egg rolls, please
Lines aren’t really our style. That’s why we like to keep certain things about Dallas on the DL (cough cough, Jimmy’s Food Store). So when it comes to $3 Sunday mimosas, epic new patios and the buttery biscuits of our dreams, we’re hoping we can keep these things to ourselves for a while. Here, six restaurants that quietly opened in Dallas that you should visit before everyone else discovers them.
Pie Tap Pizza Workshop
While everyone’s waiting to nab a table at the Design District location, you can have your pizza and eat it, too (with a bourbon blackberry smash). But, hurry. We’re pretty sure people will find out about this second location soon, which means lines out the door—especially for the awesome late-night happy-hour deals.
2708 N. Henderson Ave.; 972-432-7800 or pie-tap.com
The Honor Bar
The burgers don’t come with fries (you have to order them separately), but hey, we’re in the Park Cities and the patio is to die for. So sip on a delicious Bee’s Knees cocktail, order some plates to share and relish our amazing Dallas winter.
26A Highland Park Village; 214-780-0956 or honorbar.com
Make a reservation now to soak up some serious Côte d’Azur vibes along with delightful homemade Italian pasta. And the blue-and-white-everything interior design makes for a very like-worthy Instagram pic.
2950 N. Harwood St., #115, 469-458-6623 or dolceriviera.com
With daily drink specials galore (hello, $3 Sunday mimosas) and a menu that includes everything from healthy salad to cheat-day poutine, the time is now to head to this Austin original. Oh, and did we mention its ginormous patio?
1520 Greenville Ave.; 214-484-3239 or haymakerdallas.com
It’s the Southern restaurant in Downtown Dallas we’ve been waiting for. And while it’s quiet now, we have a feeling it will soon be popping. After all, it’s not many who can resist a killer biscuit served with loads of butter.
1555 Elm St.; 972-232-1728 or graysonsocial.com
OK, fine. While this Greenville Avenue restaurant technically isn’t new, it is new to serving brunch and the meat mavens are going to be all over this. Brunch will be served Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and feature pastrami egg rolls, corned beef hash, a traditional English breakfast and so much more.
1919 Greenville Ave.; 214-887-0000 or theblindbutcher.com
