Trinity Groves: Devour Dallas' Most Delicious Dining Destination

Nestled at the foot of Dallas' Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge lies Trinity Groves, a dazzling dining enclave known for its chef-driven incubator restaurant concepts.

Along with spectacular views of the city, Trinity Groves offers a wide range of culinary gems to choose from, including its crowning glory– Casa Rubia, an über-popular tapas bar that dishes up modern Spanish and Catalan-inspired specialties.

Those in the mood for a bit of Marrakesh-style glamour will want to head next door to Souk, a lively Moroccan bistro offering hookahs, belly dancing and mouth-watering tagines. There's also Resto Gastro Bistro, a chic dining spot serving creative global fare, and Beto & Son, churning out innovative Mexican-style creations.

Craving a burger? You're in luck, Trinity Groves is home to Dallas' best hamburger joint, Off-Site Kitchen. It's also where to find mouthwatering steaks at The Hall Bar & Grill.  For sushi and ramen, look no further than Sushi Bayashi. And for barbecue, brews and live blues, Babb Bros BBQ & Blues is the place to go.  

If you think these spots sound tasty, then feast your eyes on the rest of the list. There's sure to be a restaurant to satisfy even the pickiest eater in your group.
