Bistro 31

87 Highland Park Village
Dallas, TX 75205
Bistro 31

Bistro 31 tries to offer two things at once with their Highland Park menu: Salt cod croquettes, escargot and steak tartare cater to the neighborhood's well-traveled jet setters, while grilled salmon and a burger appeal to those safe-eating Dallasites who have never left home. Prices skew high, with $27 lamb loins and $16 Kobe beef burgers, but no one seems to mind. The wait at length at the cramped bar for a chance to sit in this white leather dining room illuminated with crystal chandeliers – Bistro 31 doesn’t take reservations.
