It’s springtime in Dallas and you know what that means: not only are allergies a guarantee, but so too are the plethora of restaurants opening across the metroplex. We’re here to break down all the exciting new spots coming to DFW not only this spring but through summer and later this year too! 

Updated April 2024





GOAT Victory Park




Neighborhood: Downtown / Thompson Hotel 

Cuisine: French inspired with a southern twist

About: Perched on the ninth floor of the Thompson Hotel, Little Daisy's chef blends French cuisine with his Louisiana roots. You'll find Louisiana-inspired wallpaper and French artwork, oysters and French 75's, gumbo and gnocchi, and so much more.  

The 101: On top of delicious dishes and gorgeous space, the live piano and trumpet duo playing old-school jazz really tops off the entire experience! If you don't want the evening to end we recommend heading up to the 18th floor for a nightcap at Cat Bird!  





Neighborhood: Victory Park 

Cuisine: Euro-Mediterranean 

About: A modern restaurant concept with an international flare, innovative cocktails, and lively ambiance. Head in for happy hour Monday through Friday from 4-6pm with 25% off all appetizers, cocktails, and beer.

The 101: The concept's central location and proximity to spots like Happiest Hour and the American Airlines Center makes it the perfect location for dinner before a show or game, or to dance the night away with weekend DJs and entertainment. 





Neighborhood: Harwood

Cuisine: American 

About: Harwood's newest concept serving up breakfast and lunch in a classy yet chic space, with a bar for coffee or cocktails, high tops for a quick lunch, and a dining room and covered patio.  

The 101: The menu has a southern twist and features seasonal ingredients, plus they have a variety of fresh juices and smoothies. We loved how the drinks have on-theme names with common law terms like The Verdict and The Witness!





Neighborhood: Preston Center 

Cuisine: Meat-centric omakase 

About: From the former chef of Teppo comes an entirely new take on the Japanese dining experience of omakase, switching seafood for meat. It's a 14-course tasting experience where each yakitori course is cooked right in front of you! 

The 101: The space is extremely clean and centered in minimalist Japanese design, and the experience is intimate, with just 8 guests per seating (there are only two seatings per night, one at 5:30pm and the other at 8:30pm). Like most omakase restaurants, it's not cheap, but a great special occasion spot and truly worth it! 





Neighborhood: Deep Ellum 

Cuisine: Mediterranean street food 

About: Located in the former Postino wine bar space, Miznon serves up innovative takes on your favorite Mediterranean dishes... in a pita! They're also known for their Baby Cauliflower which is truly so good. 

The 101: This popular hotspot from Israel has locations in Paris, Vienna, Melbourne, Singapore, London, Boston, NYC, Vegas, and now Dallas, and takes flavors from each city to translate into the food, cocktails, and vibes! 





Neighborhood: Las Colinas / Ritz-Carlton

Cuisine: Elevated Italian 

About: From Michelin-starred and celebrity chef, John Tesar, this elevated Italian restaurant takes guests on a delicious journey into real Italian traditions with a menu that pays homage to the diverse and vibrant flavors of Italy.  

The 101: We loved the focus on family-style dishes, with light and vibrant starters to more hearty entrees, everything was so fresh and incredible!  





Neighborhood: Garland

Cuisine: Pizza & Beer Garden

About: From the owners of Goodfriend Beer Garden comes a casual new concept with New Haven style pizza, house-made pasta, and a welcoming atmosphere. 

The 101: The casual vibes and indoor + outdoor seating makes Fortunate Son the perfect setting to get together with friends and family. 





Neighborhood: Lake Highlands 

Cuisine: American

About: An intimate neighborhood bistro in the previous RM 12:20 Bistro with the most stunning & moody interior (plus a climate-controlled patio), and a timeless yet upscale menu. You'll find a homestyle Porkchop, Texas Red Snapper, and an assortment of salads and shareables like the Not, Not a Seafood Tower. 

The 101: We love the playful yet refined vibe Goldie's emanates and can see it quickly becoming a local fave, for everything from date nights to a tried-and-true spot to catch up with friends.





Neighborhood: Old East Dallas

Cuisine: French

About: The exciting reopening of Dallas' "Most Romantic Restaurant" with a modern take on the timeless classic. On the menu, the Champagne Brie soup is a fan favorite, plus crab cakes or a rack of lamb! 

The 101: We're so thrilled that this classic Dallas institution is back, the updates like the brick walls and windows give the new space a light and fresh feeling.
