20 Feet is what you get when two really good chefs try to simultaneously capture the casual elegance of a small Manhattan seafood restaurant and the glorious excess of a New England clam shack. The small dining room joins Good 2 Go Taco and Goodfriend on Peavy Road in East Dallas, rounding out a trifecta of solid restaurants drawing a strong neighborhood following. Everything that emerges from 20 Feet's bubbling oil is delicious, from the fish and chips to the shrimp and oysters that make their way into compelling po-boy sandwiches. Drive down Garland Road towards Peavy Road and look for the badass pirate flag. Stellar seafood awaits.
