Iron Fork is a Dallas foodie paradise. Thousands of hungry visitors dine on unlimited bites from Dallas restaurants while meeting chefs and sipping wine and cocktails, but the event includes a fun twist: a live cooking competition that pits two Dallas chefs against each other in a real-time cook-off using surprise ingredients.

This year's Dallas Observer Iron Fork takes over Centennial Hall at Fair Park from 7 to 10 p.m. on Wednesday, May 1. Take a look at the restaurants that have signed on so far, with many more to come:

Empire Baking Company
Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck
Fresh Art Foodie
Go Loco Street Tacos
Great One Cookie Co.
Henry's Homemade Ice Cream
Isabelly's Chocolates & Sweet Treats
Kabuki Japanese Restaurant
Kookie Haven
Mozzarella Company
Norma's Café
Old Town Creamery
Sandwich Hag
V-Eats Modern Vegan

Want tickets? Of course you do. Get in on the action early during presale, which starts at 10 a.m. today — all you gotta do is use the promo code IRONFORK to get tickets before they go on sale to the general public on Feb. 4.

General admission tickets ($35) get you unlimited food samples alongside beer, wine and cocktails (alcohol is included in the ticket price). VIP tickets ($65) include entry into the event an hour early and complimentary valet parking before 6:30 p.m.

Ticket prices will increase as the event draws near, so grab tickets soon. You'll find more info at Iron Fork's website

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
