This polished Far North Dallas bistro is widely loved for its seamless service and consistently delicious food. Not only that, everything is sensibly priced, especially considering the quality of the offerings. The restaurant belongs to long-time chef Jean-Marie Cadot, whose culinary lineage includes stints in Dallas' top French restaurants as well as several of Paris' Michelin star establishments. The menu majors in boldly flavored French hits such as duck terrine, escargot and coq au vin. If you're feeling carnivorous, you can't go wrong with Cadot's flat-iron steak, it's served with peppercorn sauce and crispy frites. Elsewhere on the list, you'll find modern American options like watermelon salad with candied ginger and blackened Ahi tuna with quinoa. They even give a nod to Italy with the likes of gnocchi and veal scaloppini. Pace yourself for dessert, there's everything from profiteroles to crème brûlée and soufflé. When you're in the mood for some old-school ooh-la-la brasserie fare, this is the place to be.
- French: "Cadot offers happy hour Monday - Friday from 4 to 7 p.m. with drink specials served on the patio and in the bar."
- Best for French Because: If you want a beautiful and classic French meal without having to break the bank, Cadot is where you want to go.
