Yesterday in Three-Course Meal, Ristorante Nicola executive chef Luigi Iannuario told you a little bit about himself. Today, he shares his thoughts on Dallas' dining scene.

What are the five Dallas restaurants you go to most often? I work at the restaurant most days and nights, and I have a family. So I mostly eat at home with them when I can. But I like Tei-An, Komali and Smoke.

What are five things the Dallas restaurant scene needs more of? Small, chef-driven restaurants, food trucks, farmers, wine bars and loyalty.

What are five things the Dallas restaurant scene needs less of? Flash, noise, trends, impatience and short ribs.

What is the best of Dallas when it comes to restaurants? I am way to modest to answer that question honestly.

What is the worst of Dallas when it comes to restaurants? I am way to nice to answer that question honestly.

If you could steal one dish off another Dallas chef's menu, what would it be? Any of the mussels dishes from Toulouse.
