Not much is growing in the dead of winter, but the Dallas restaurant scene is certainly blooming. After an impossibly big year that brought the openings of Uchi Dallas, Matt McCallister’s Filament, and Graham Dodds’ Wayward Sons, 2016 is shaping up to bring plenty of excellent new places to dine throughout the new year.
As predicted, the Dallas suburbs are hot for restaurant openings this year, evidenced by Tre Wilcox’s Julia Pearl Southern Cuisine and Shake Shack, both of which will land in Plano later this year. Southern cuisine, Italian spots, and casual fare continue to dominate the trendier options, while burgers and barbecue are reliable Dallas standbys.
There’s plenty to be excited about this year. Stay tuned here for concrete opening dates, menus, and more updates on these 13 highly-anticipated forthcoming restaurants.
