The weather in Dallas may be cooling off, but the food scene seems to be getting hotter. Between new openings and new menus, local restaurants are set to welcome in a tasty season this autumn.
Perhaps the most anticipated opening of the season is the rebirth of Downtown’s Statler Hotel and its new dining spots, Overeasy, Fine China and Scout. Each concept sports a different theme, but expect all of them to soon be at the top of everyone’s must-hit list.
Then there’s the French Room, the legendary restaurant housed inside of the historic Adolphus Hotel. The restaurant has just reopened following an extensive 16-month renovation and now boasts a fresh look and a fresh menu to boot.
Also, just in time for fall comes a sleek new ramen eatery to Deep Ellum, Oni Ramen, that offers steaming hot bowls of slurpable noodles as well as things like Japanese fried chicken and steamed buns. The best part? The restaurant stays open until 3 and 4 a.m. on weekends. Adding to the mix is Harlowe MXM, which hawks an eclectic menu of new American fare, as well as a Arepa TX a fast-casual Latin street food joint and Sachet, a chic spot serving innovative Mediterranean specialties.
And it doesn’t stop here, Dallas has its autumn plate full of exciting dining options worth trying, so keep the rest of this list handy for when you’re in the mood to be well fed.
