Tempt Your Taste Buds At North Dallas' Best Dining Delights

This sprawling enclave may be known for its swanky shopping malls and snazzy estates, but the North Dallas quadrant is also chock-full of eateries that span the culinary spectrum.

If it's a tasty burger that you're after, then head to Liberty Burger where you'll find some of the most creative patty endeavors in town. If you're in the mood for pizza– make a beeline for Dough, the Neapolitan-style pies here are a favorite of Food Network's Guy Fieri.

Fancy something more exotic? Take your taste-buds on an enticing spice journey at India Palace, a Preston Hollow stalwart that specializes in North Indian food. More Asian fare and terrific hand-made dumplings can be found at Royal China.

The Dallas Galleria may be known as a shopper's paradise, but it's also where you'll find The Second Floor Restaurant, a cozy refuge offering contemporary American cuisine and inviting tipples.

And after you've shopped till you dropped at NorthPark, make your way over to the mall's latest dining sensation, The Theodore– a stately restaurant-cum-bar serving re-imagined American chow and fancy cocktails named after national parks.

Also located at NorthPark is La Duni, a great spot for dinning or even just an afternoon pick-me-up, like perhaps an espresso con crema and a slice of cuatro leches cake.

Whether it's a romantic night on the town, a family outing or a casual get-together with friends, we've got the lowdown on North Dallas' best bites for your buck.
