Life is too short to waste your lunch time eating tasteless fast food or boring sandwiches. And fortunately you don't have to, Dallas is home to some of the best lunch grub you could ask for. Need something fast and cheap? Perhaps a place where you can sit outside? Or is it a fine dining experience you're after? Fortunately in a city where dining out is a favorite past time, you've got plenty of delicious options.
In the mood for casual French fare? Then try Mercat Bistro, a bustling Parisian-style cafe in the up and coming Harwood District near Uptown. For exceptional Mexican fare, head over to Meso Maya, a rustically chic cantina housed in an old tortilla factory near downtown's Klyde Warren Park. If you want to actually eat in Klyde Warren Park, you can't find a better spot to dine alfresco than at Savor Gastropub, where the views are as spectacular as the food.
Have some extra time to spend or want to make it a memorable occasion? Then try to snag a table at Flora Street Cafe the Dallas Arts District. It's the newest culinary venture by famed chef and restaurateur Stephan Pyles.
And lunch in Big D can't get more classic than at the Zodiac, located on the 6th floor of the iconic flagship Neiman Marcus store downtown. The restaurant has been serving fine cuisine alongside complimentary consommé and popovers for over sixty years.
