Certain restaurants are known for their expertise at turning out signature dishes really well. They've pinned down the ingredients, mastered the process, and gained a strong following as a result. Dallas has had much success cultivating great restaurants and creating a substantial market for Seafood.
Locals can't get enough of the city's excellent food, and you'll often find them, along with eager tourists, at a wide variety of popular restaurants. No matter what your seafood preference, Dallas has it all. If you're in the mood for New England fare, such as lobster or New England clam chowder, visit Daddy Jack's Lobster and Chow House or Kenny's Wood Fired Grill.
If you're in the mood for an elegant, romantic seafood dinner, go to Cafe Pacific or Oceanaire Seafood Room in the North Dallas area. These restaurants offer extensive wine lists, caviar and flown-in daily catches from both coasts.
Want to try some fresh gulf seafood? Sure you do - you're in Texas after all! Make a special trip to visit the local favorite, Hook Line and Sinker, which serves the best fried catfish and shrimp in all of Dallas. If you have a hankering for oysters, go to S&D Oyster Company in Uptown. Dallas isn't in Louisiana, but several local spots serve some of the best Cajun seafood, including Dodie's Seafood Cafe.
