Openings and Closings

The Biggest Dallas Restaurant Closings of 2014

There are some years that are better for restaurants than others. In 2014, we saw explosive growth as restaurants of all kinds opened all over Dallas. Many of the city's restaurateurs have been very lucky this year as they took risks and opened restaurants in locations that seemed tricky, if not downright impossible.

Undoubtedly, more good restaurants have opened than closed this year, which can only mean good things for the Dallas dining scene as we head into 2015. Still, some very notable spots closed up shop, from beloved dive bars to fancy fine dining, and we're going to miss them.
