The Dallas Design District has long been known for its industrial warehouses and interior design showrooms. But it's only recently that the area has transformed into a magnet for foodies, boasting an ever evolving lineup of top-notch restaurants, eateries and pubs.
The District's foray into foodiedom started in 2010 when The Meddlesome Moth flew in offering beer geeks a solid lineup of brews and seriously good grub (think sesame duck wings and rabbit pot pie). Speaking of good grub, the Rodeo Goat cranks out burgers loaded with everything from candied bacon to brisket chili. If you prefer a more traditional, but no less epic patty, join the line at Off-Site Kitchen for one of the best cheeseburgers in Dallas. Be sure to take notice of which line you're in, because there's usually a long queue for the coma-inducing barbecue at The Slow Bone located directly across the road.
For those craving something more cutting-edge, check out two of Bon Appétit's Top 50 New Restaurants for 2013: Oak and FT33 , where you'll find dazzling creations prepared by award-winning chefs.
Next to Oak is the trendy Southeast Asian eatery, Pakpao Thai, featuring delicacies like braised pork belly and crispy tamarind duck. Mexican food fiends will want to cha cha over to El Bolero for upscale regional specialties. Or for phenomenal Cajun fare, head over to the Bridge Bistro for crawfish étouffée.
And if you really want to impress a date, SER Steak & Spirits, on the twenty-seventh floor of the Hilton Anatole hotel offers stunning city views and delicious modern American cuisine.
