Boulevardier is one of Dallas’ two best casual French restaurants, alongside The Mitchell. And Boulevardier wins out on atmosphere, with its cozy space in the Bishop Arts neighborhood and its wall lined with extremely well-chosen wine bottles. Take a look at the oysters on ice at the bar, then polish off a dozen and choose among traditional temptations like a superbly cooked steak frites, which comes with both the usual basket of fries and a lightly dressed salad, or seared scallops on a rich bed of pureed cauliflower and browned butter.

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.
