20 Feet Seafood Joint

Cane Rosso White Rock

Copy Link
East Dallas residents are thrilled to have their very own branch of Jay Jerrier's Neapolitan pizza phenomenon, and this one's got a massive, beautiful patio.

Belly & Trumpet

Copy Link
Oak chef de cuisine Brian Zenner is wowing crowds nightly at this ultra-hot McKinney Avenue space boasting sexy decor, killer cocktails, and perfectly executed small plates. Four stars from Leslie Brenner doesn't hurt, either.

Full Circle Tavern

Copy Link
Recently opened near South Side on Lamar is this comfy-casual pub with Midwestern-inspired food (like fried cheese curds and beer-cheese soup with soft pretzels) that's much better than it has to be, thanks to the owners' catering experience.
Matt McCallister's farm-to-table cooking with a modernist slant makes this Design District hot spot one of the hottest tables in town, even 9 months after its opening. Don't miss the housemade charcuterie.

Haystack Burgers & Barley

Copy Link
Because Dallas can seemingly never have too many burger joints, Haystack debuted in May with a quirky rustic interior, an array of uniquely topped burgers, and plenty of craft beer.

HG Sply Co.

Copy Link
This new Lower Greenville spot has a Paleo-focused menu, but it hardly reads as health food: bacon-wrapped pork shanks and a Moscow Mule, anyone?

The Hospitality Sweet

Copy Link
Hospitality Sweet opened in late April to give downtown workers (and residents) fresh new lunch options including creative sandwiches like a brie-and-pecan panini, salads and a plethora of housemade baked goods, including gluten-free varieties.

LARK on the Park

Copy Link
This new dining destination at Klyde Warren Park is drawing crowds for great cocktails, craft beer, and a well-edited menu of California-influenced fare.

Mot Hai Ba

Copy Link
The new Lakewood Vietnamese spot from Good 2 Go Taco chefs Jeana Johnson and Colleen O'Hare is hot, hot, hot, serving up pho and banh mi at lunchtime and dishes like fried frog's legs and Shaking Beef at dinner.

Spoon Bar & Kitchen

Copy Link
Recent Top Chef contestant John Tesar continues to draw crowds to his newest and best restaurant to date, where he's pushing the seafood envelope with dishes like smoked eel head cheese and black truffle and oyster stew. Recently arrived pastry chef David Collier is shaking up the dessert menu. [Photo: Kevin Marple]

The Slow Bone

Copy Link
Jack Perkins' new barbecue joint is serving up massive platters of smoky, tender brisket, 2 kinds of ribs, fabulous housemade sausage, and down-home sides like hush puppies and cauliflower-Brussels sprout au gratin.
