Lowest Greenville Avenue: Two Of The Tastiest Blocks In Dallas

Lowest Greenville Avenue has gone from being a desolate strip of seedy bars and vacated storefronts to a sizzling dining mecca filled with sidewalk cafes, gastropubs and eclectic restaurants sporting rooftop terraces.

If you're off to an early start, stop in at Boulangerie by Village Baking Co.– where a creamy cappuccino and a few French pastries or sandwiches serve as the perfect pick-me-up.

Remedy, a modern day soda fountain eatery, serves everything from house-made sodas, egg creams and boozy shakes to upscale BLT's, burgers and southern fried duck confit. Bbbop Seoul Kitchen cranks out stellar bibimbop, as well as Korean fried chicken, handmade dumplings and kimchi fries.  
If you're craving fresh Maine lobster then Daddy Jack's Lobster and Chowder House is your stop. For Japanese food–Teppo Yakitori and Sushi Bar will undoubtedly exceed your expectations.

If you like Middle Eastern cuisine, your going to love the Afghan fare at Nora Restaurant and Bar. Be sure to reserve a spot on the rooftop terrace, it offers spectacular views of downtown Dallas. Nora's neighbor, HG Sply, touts a paleo-centric menu and boasts a similarly stunning rooftop view. Across the street at The Blind Butcher you'll find innovative dishes ranging from hand-crafted charcuterie to Quebecois poutine with foie gras. Clark Food & Wine Co. serves charcuterie and excellent small plate options. Last but not least, there's The Libertine Bar, one of the area's buzziest gastropubs, offering an amazing selection of brews and an equally outstanding lineup of food to pair it with.
