I cannot wait until my March edition of Texas Monthly arrives, when I can see the layout of Patricia Sharpe’s best new restaurants in Texas for 2020.

I’ll have to find time to make my way to all of them, but of course, we’ll take time here to nod to our Dallas ones — none of which are a surprise.

Homewood comes in at No. 4; Salaryman No. 6; Khao Noodle Shop No. 8. Ka-Tip Thai Street Food and Beverley’s get honorable mentions.

We can agree with all, but I’m going to take this time to give more attention to Justin Holt’s Salaryman.

We recently went by the Bishop Arts restaurant where we ordered nearly all the yakitori we could handle. (That’s a level you must know, as they do not offer to-go boxes. Hooray, sustainability!)

I think I was telling people about the chicken inner thigh I had tasted daily for about a week (says someone who rarely orders chicken enthusiastically). The waves of plates that kept coming out were just what we wanted — we didn’t have a miss.

I'm not here for a full review, of course, but, the wings were crispy, the hearts were perfectly meaty, we wanted more of the rib and back, and the Texas wagyu with pickled okra was nothing short of phenomenal (says someone who could eat steak and okra everyday).

Don't get the Texas wagyu with pickled okra to share. You won't.EXPAND

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.
