The Best New Dallas Restaurants of 2017



2017 was an exciting year for new restaurants, boasting cultural and geographic diversity that bodes well for our city’s culinary future. Yes, it’s nice when great new fine-dining restaurants open in downtown Dallas, but neighborhoods all around the area need good places to eat, so it’s heartening that some of our favorite new places are in unlikely spots such as downtown Irving, the Cedars, northern Carrollton and West Dallas. It’s even cooler that they include not just upscale tacos and scrumptious pizzas but Thai street snacks and Iraqi kebabs, too.

Get ready to dive into our list of the best new Dallas-area restaurants of 2017 — it's a list so deep, we had to include 11.
