The Top 100 Dallas Restaurants, No. 4: Sachet represents the style of restaurant dining we love most. The vegetable-focused, elegantly Mediterranean plates of food start from impeccable ingredients, and they’re served in portions small enough that we can try more. It’s possible to focus on a different aspect of this restaurant with each visit: Come once to sample Sachet’s seasonal house-made pastas — as good as anything at an explicitly Italian restaurant — then return to try a half-dozen or so of the vegetarian meze or to focus on meaty main courses from the stone oven Sachet imported from Tuscany. The menu’s influences range from Spanish Iberico ham to Turkish-inspired lamb, with a detour at the end for Tunisian doughnuts, but pastas like green garlic tortiglioni just might be best of all.

Top pick: Bring friends so you can try as many meze and pastas as possible. No, an order of fresh-baked pita bread is not free, but yes, it is well worth the cost and comes with a small bowl of outrageously good olive oil.

The downside: A few early visits yielded dishes that were slightly too salty; the problem seems to be fading as the kitchen matures.

Fun fact: In addition to an entire menu of different gin and tonics, Sachet boasts the best wine program in Dallas. The wine list notates natural, biodynamic and organic bottlings, and encompasses wines from Spain, Morocco, France, Italy, Greece, Slovenia, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel and Texas. Feeling a bit lost? Seemingly every employee on staff can tell you, with sincere enthusiasm, about their particular favorites.
