Dallas named Restaurant City of the Year 2019 in US

Dallas has been named the 2019 Restaurant City of the Year by American food magazine Bon Appétit, thanks to a restaurant renaissance led by chefs who are rejecting large-scale restaurant group models and creating highly specific personal dining spaces.

“Though Dallas and its food scene have long been overlooked in favor of other Texas towns, today, the city’s in the midst of a renaissance, with excellent new restaurants and bars opening so fast and so furious that it’s hard to keep up,” said Hilary Cadigan of the magazine.


It is not just one person or one thing that is driving the change, but rather Dallas’ community of highly ambitious chefs, hailing from different backgrounds, working independently and yet with a palpable sense of synchronicity.

Their list of exciting places to eat in Dallas includes Petra and the Beast, where the chef’s food philosophy rests on foraging, fermenting and nose-to-tail cookery.


The list also includes Nor Handroll Bar, a Japanese eatery that specializes in sushi handrolls; José, a Mexican restaurant that serves regional Guadalajaran fare; and Khao Noodle Shop, a Laotian restaurant where noodles are made from scratch. RGA/JB
