Boulevardier is one of Dallas’ two best casual French restaurants, and the other, The Mitchell, remains temporarily closed until the pandemic subsides. Boulevardier itself only reopened in September, after going dark for nearly half the year. Now customers can again sit at the handful of sidewalk and patio tables, in the dining room or on their home couches, clutching takeout containers. If you’re dining in, meals here should almost all start with a dozen or so fresh oysters and continue with a starter such as the Spanish-style grilled octopus or savory crawfish beignets. Look out for nightly specials during the week, particularly a superbly cooked steak frites, which comes with both hyper-crisp fries and a lightly dressed salad.

Top pick: Don’t ignore one of the city’s best wine programs. The blackboard specials include both nightly meals and rare bottles to drink.

Fun fact: On Fridays until 6:30 p.m., Boulevardier is the most affordable high-end oyster bar in the city. Oysters are discounted and every bottle of wine is half-price.
