Take A Culinary Tour Around Greenville Avenue's Coolest Eateries

The rapidly evolving Greenville Avenue neighborhood, located just a few miles east of Downtown–  is quickly becoming one of the city’s hottest dining destinations. And with good reason. No matter what kind of cuisine you’re craving, you'll undoubtedly find it all here.

For a mouth-watering taste of the Mediterranean and Middle East, head over to Cafe Izmir. Or hit Gloria's for Pan-Latin specialties, like pupusas, enchiladas and tacos. And if you're in the mood for casual French fare, then you can't go wrong with either The Grape or St. Martin’s Wine Bistro. 

Not-to-be-missed is one of the neighborhood's newest dining gems– Wabi House, a sleek izakaya-style noodle spot that slings up a slew of ramen options and other terrific Japanese delicacies. 

Speaking of new dining gems, Greenville Avenue recently welcomed in two restaurants helmed by a couple of Dallas' finest chefs: Graham Dodds' farm-to-table spot, Wayward Sons– and Nathan Tate's hip southern comfort eatery, Rapscallion.
