What was the best dining neighborhood in 2014?

Nancy Nichols, senior editor/critic at D Magazine: "Not sure if it's a neighborhood, but Trinity Groves has been a great addition to dining in Dallas."

Teresa Gubbins, dining reporter/senior editor at CultureMap Dallas and Star-Telegram restaurant reviewer: "Fort Worth."

José R. Ralat, blogger at Taco Trail and writer at Cowboys & Indians magazine: "Still Oak Cliff."

Malcolm Mayhew, Star-Telegram restaurant reviewer and Fort Worth contributor at Eater Dallas: "The Cultural District, west of the W. 7th area. Four restaurants opened this year, within walking distance of one another: Righteous Foods, Hanabi Ramen & Izakaya, Le Cep Restaurant and Burgundy Pasture Beef, a meat market that serves killer burgers on the weekends."

foodbitch, blogger: "Deep Ellum is still winning."

Whitney Filloon, editor at Eater Dallas: "For the second year in a row, I'm going to say Deep Ellum. Glazed, Pecan Lodge, Cane Rosso, Monkey King, not to mention all the bars. Trinity Groves deserves an honorable mention for being crazy-packed every time I go there."
