As Dallas flourishes as a culinary hotspot — and with a seemingly endless number of new restaurant and bar openings — we all need help keeping up-to-date on the hottest places to try.

Here are three different local foodie accounts to follow, each with a unique angle that make it worthwhile.

Dallas Food Nerd started in 2011 when two bloggers went on a food tour of five restaurants in Dallas and decided to create their own blog that now has over 20 contributors. Along with their blog, they also have Instagram and Twitter accounts with almost 61,000 followers combined. Their page covers a wide range of restaurants in the DFW area and the latest gadgets to use in the kitchen, hence the use of the word nerd. They have also partnered with local restaurants in giveaways, including their latest one with Maple Leaf Diner. Check out the post above.
