April is starting off strong with some of Dallas' newest gems in the food industry. This month's latest spots include a fun coffee shop, a New York icon, and still many more to come this month. 

Updated April 2022







Neighborhood: Design District

Opened: March 31st, 2022

About: New York restaurant concepts are taking over DFW and we aren’t mad about it! Major Food Group’s second Dallas opening (behind Sadelle’s in Highland Park Village) has welcomed their Italian concept, Carbone! Other locations include Miami + Vegas and now we have our very own, further proving Dallas is the place to be for dining! Its definitely a hotspot already with the lack of reservations to prove it but we couldn’t help it - we had to share!

Cuisine: Italian

The 101: Making the ultimate versions of classic Italian fare is what Carbone is all about! Of course their most popular dish, “imitated but never duplicated,” is their spicy vodka rigatoni which we cannot wait to try! Find antipasti, soups + salads, veal, seafood, and more. Along with fine Italian food comes great wine so definitely find your vino of choice to pair with your meal before indulging in traditional desserts like tiramisu! Reservations are already limited but they are available on Resy!



Carbone Vino

Cuisine: Italian

The 101: Don't forget about the Vino! Wine is available by the glass, or by the quartino. The Sicillian pizzas are a must and if you are craving a Carbone pasta dish no need to worry there are 3 food options from Carbone including the beloved spicy rigatoni vodka. Dessert is also a must-have with their fancy adult ice cream sundae. Reservations are available on Resy, but not required.

dirty bones


Neighborhood: Victory Park

Opening: Expected April 18th, 2022

About: Originally located in Fort Worth, Dirty Bones is bringing wings, libations, and sportsbar-like good vibes. Milkshake Concepts, who brought us Vidorra and Stirr, are bringing this more casual concept with late night weekend hours to Dallas' Victory Park.

Cuisine: Wings

The 101: WIth over 20 rubs and sauces, there is something for everyone. There is expected to be a peanut butter and jelly rub that we cannot wait to try. If you are not a wings fan, no problem- there are other great options like fried pickles, onion rings, and sandwiches.
