The food scene in Dallas has gone through something of a “restaurant renaissance” in recent years. New restaurants popped up like crazy practically overnight. And these were not your quintessential eateries, either, but rather highly personal spaces that spoke for the chef’s talents. And with chefs hailing from different backgrounds, there is no shortage when it comes to variety. From chocolate globs to Vietnamese smorgasbords to every type of Mexican dish available, there is a little bit of everything.
This renaissance was so huge that Bon Appetit magazine named Dallas the Restaurant City of the Year in 2019. After hearing that, we simply must see for ourselves what all the buzz is about. Let us look at some of the top food influencers in Dallas. You’ll soon be planning your food trip after this article.
