This list aims to guide visitors and locals alike to great new locations, up-and-coming eateries, and established restaurants at the top of the food game, all at various price points and featuring the numerous cuisines that shine in DFW.
Eater Dallas’s list of the 38 Essential Restaurants in fair North Texas is updated quarterly. This fall’s update sees a nearly complete overhaul, ushering in a fresh list of places to go and delights to taste. The latest updates see new additions in sushi, with Tatsu and Namo entering the list, pizza from Mister O1 and Pie Tap Pizza Workshop + Bar, Taco Y Vino, arguably the city’s hottest restaurant since it opened, El Carlos Elegante, and the return of TJ’s Seafood Market, Anise, and Nonna.
Call ahead to ensure each restaurant is open and for updates on current offerings, as these things change constantly. Wear a mask when required, tip well, and try to order directly from the restaurants if you’re ordering delivery.
