Last summer, the Dallas Museum of Art opened an outdoor pavilion with a crepe cafe specializing in a chickpea-based savory pancake popular in the far south of France. The naturally gluten-free crepe is then topped with offerings like roasted grapes, fresh herbs and house-ground almond butter. You can also order an assortment of meats and local cheeses to snack on with a fresh socca (pronounced SOAK-uh) while you sip wine or local beer.

If you're in Irving and in a hurry, you can't go wrong at Empa Mundo, a restaurant devoted to Argentine crepes with a Texas influence. When entering, saunter up to the register and mark your order with a grease pencil on a laminated menu and you'll receive a basket of hot empanadas filled with brisket or chorizo or sweet potato. If you opt for a savory crepe (there are ample sweet options, too), don't leave without some of Empa Mundo's killer chimichurri sauce.

Nestled in the hustle and bustle of West Village, Pok the Raw Bar looks unforgivably trendy. But once you try this poke, a traditionally Hawaiian dish made with raw fish and fresh vegetables, you won't even notice all the SoulCyclers wandering by on their way to Kendra Scott. With an eye on sustainable and sometimes local sourcing, the menu is based on poke bowls made with wild-caught Japanese albacore, responsibly farmed Scottish salmon and wild-caught yellowfin tuna. Go with a signature bowl or build your own with components like cauliflower rice, spicy ponzu, shiso and togaroshi. Technically, Pok does specialize in a second item: matcha. Using ceremonial-grade Japanese matcha, Pok serves up beautiful bright green pick-me-ups made with options that include cacao mint almond milk and yuzu lemonade.

This is one of the greatest banh mis in North Texas, and that's all you'll find on this menu, unless you're in the mood for baked goods, as Quoc Bao bakes their own bread and a few other offerings. Not only are these banh mi fresh, authentic and outrageously flavorful, they're all under $4, which makes this one of the cheapest lunches in DFW.
