Spring has sprung and with it comes a slew of restaurant openings. In fact, there’s so many new arrivals on the Dallas area food scene right now, it’s almost impossible to keep up, much less narrow the list down to the ten best choices.
For starters, there’s a massive new food hall in Plano, a buzzy, wine-centric Italian joint in Uptown and a cozy, Pan-Asian tapas lounge in East Dallas. Speaking of Asian, one of the most anticipated arrivals has been Gung Ho, an innovative American-Chinese eatery with a favorite local chef at the helm. Meanwhile, one of the city’s legendary restaurateurs has returned out of retirement to rebirth the defunct Cedars Social into a restaurant and bar specializing in modern Mexican cuisine.
And while the Dallas area may not have a Michelin restaurant yet, it recently landed two dining spots by Michelin-rated chefs: Bullion, a contemporary French brasserie by Chef Bruno Davaillon, and Zaytinya, a chic Mediterranean-inspired mezze restaurant from celebrated Chef José Andrés.
In case these have you drooling, just wait until you see the rest of the list. There’s something tasty to satisfy every craving. Just make sure to arrive hungry.
