Dallas is home to literally hundreds of restaurants, and there’s a new spot that opens (practically) every day. It’s tough to keep up with every single new eatery that’s debuted in recent weeks, but here’s five brand new openings to know about right now.

State 28 Grill

The newest restaurant from DFW burger king Pat Snuffer just made its debut in Dallas, at 2427 Mockingbird Road. The new eatery is thoroughly Texas-themed, with tons of Lone Star flags on the wall and a giant hand-painted map of the state. On the menu, find burgers, loaded fries, and Louisiana-style po’ boys made on bread that’s flown in from New Orleans.

Edith’s Neighborhood Bistro CityLine

The reinvention of a French bistro formerly located in Dallas, Edith’s Neighborhood Cafe brings tons of pastries and an all-day menu to the CityLine development at 3551 Wilshire Way in Richardson. Look forward to savory dishes like chicken and sausage cassoulet, confit duck served with waffles, and sweet and savory crepe options, along with high tea service.

Wing Squad

Diners can’t actually visit Wing Squad’s Dallas restaurant, but they can order its spicy chicken wings via delivery apps like Uber Eats and Postmates. Sauce up an order of wings with barbecue, garlic parmesan, or sweet chili sauce, and pair with mac and cheese, then finish with a slice of chocolate cake.

Chef Chin’s Hibachi and Ramen

The latest addition to Plano’s massive food hall Legacy Hall, Chef Chin’s will start slinging Japanese dishes from chef Chin Liang, who also operates Horu Sushi Bar, when it debuts on February 18. In addition to bowls of fried chicken ramen, fun dishes like hibachi fried rice with filet mignon, soft-shell crab dressed in ponzu, and beef tenderloin tataki await.

Leila Bakery and Cafe

Now open in East Dallas, Leila Bakery and Cafe is a seriously sweet new pastry destination. A full cafe menu is in the works, but for now, pastry enthusiasts can swing by for gingerbread pear pie, strawberry muffins, croissants, and more decadent sweets, according to CultureMap.
