It’s been a great year for the Dallas dining scene, and variety was the name of the game. For a town that thrives on fancy food and the luxurious lounges that serve it, it’s been fun to see some of the simplest concepts knock it out of the park (cough, cough: Shake Shack). Here is our list of the 15 best restaurant openings of 2016.
Reserve your table to dine on modern Texas fare before heading to the symphony or a show at AT&T Performing Arts Center. Items to eye include the lobster tamale pie, the South Texas antelope and the poblano infladito. Mmm.
People completely lost their minds when this New York burger chain opened its doors in Uptown. But who are we kidding? The line is still out the door come lunch and dinnertime every single day.
Lovingly referred to as Uchi’s slightly younger sister, this fusion eatery also offers perfectly executed cocktails. The menu has a predominantly Asian flair to it, but you can still order a hot fried-chicken bun and a Little Gem Caesar.
This place is killing it on Maple Avenue with inventive appetizers, piping-hot pizzas and decadent desserts. We aren’t here to tell you what to do, but... tagliorini followed by tiramisu is never a bad idea.
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.
The menu at this meat-focused restaurant is ever-changing. And while you must try the lamb (go figure), the cocktails and desserts are also proving to be works of art that are getting a lot of well-deserved attention.
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) at the Henderson Street locale. But hurry. We’re pretty sure this place will be packed soon.
Executive chef Adrian Maricich is offering lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. Menu items not to miss include the collard green salad, the honey basil cocktail and the spot’s namesake dish: sugar bacon.
This spot is dedicated to coffee and delicious toast—we’re talking country bread, bananas, coarsely chopped chocolate and sunflower sauce. Want something more savory? How about Levain bread, arugula, Roma tomato slice, bacon and mozzarella?
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.
The menu is divided into snacks, buns and breads, large plates and sweets. Nothing here will cost you more than $25, with the exception of the “meat and three” offered at market price.
The menu features super-innovative dishes like tuna with chile pop rocks and more basic staples like sliders and truffle mac and cheese. Book a private party in the Ink Room for a customized dinner before it’s too cool.
Located on the grounds of the Dallas Farmers Market, this restaurant is what healthy dreams are made of: organic, paleo, GMO-free, locally sourced, vegan and pasture-raised. It's enough to excite both your taste buds and your conscience.
This Southern restaurant is quiet for now, but 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.
