KRLD Restaurant Week: Any Unexpected Treasures (Or Disappointments?)

KRLD Restaurant Week is now in full swing, and diners are exploring the pleasures of their favorite eating palaces at $35 a pop. So, now it's time to assess the state of our union.

Have you had any interesting or unusual stories to share from your Restaurant Week experiences? Have you tried a brand new place with trepidation, only to discover wonderful food, service, and atmosphere? Conversely, did you try that four-star gilded palace only to discover that it was made of tin, with horrible food and service?

Although restaurant goers are always a diverse crowd with diverse expectations, there always seem to be a few places that get all the buzz, while others come across as going through the motions, or worse yet, downright awful.

So, pray tell, what are your picks and pans so far this year?

Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

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.
