Restaurant operators have navigated constant changes since the coronavirus swept over North Texas, closing dining rooms March 17. Since then, rules have lifted, regulations were implemented and the status of establishments seems to change daily.
This new page lists your favorite dining destinations, searchable by neighborhood, cuisine, name and/or takeout, delivery or dine-in options.
Each restaurant in the directory lists how it’s serving food and the precautions it has for its guests and employees.
The best part of this list is it’s in no way finished. It’s a living guide that business operators can update themselves so this one spot has the most up-to-date information available.
Information changes daily — as we know from the inception of this idea to the actual rollout — so if diners see outdated information, they can let us know, too. (On a restaurant’s information page, simply click on the flag next to “Options change frequently, so best to call the restaurant to confirm. Did we get something wrong? Please message us.”)
The goal is for this to be one landing place everyone can come to when they’re looking for the next meal to support local restaurants.
We have a call-to-action to Dallas chefs, restaurant owners and managers: Try the directory today and see if your business is listed, then use the submission form to add it or provide updates.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us directly.
