Tre Wilcox's Five Favorite Dallas Restaurants

Former Top Chef contestant and Marquee Grill chef Tre Wilcox recently revealed his "Guide to the Best Restaurants in Dallas" on Gogobot, a social networking travel site. November is Food Travel Month on the site, where 16 different celebrity chefs share their favorite restaurants in cities across the globe.

Here at home, Wilcox is partial to Malai Kitchen in the West Village and praises the green curry and the cod as his favorite dishes.

Of course, Cane Rosso is on the list. Really though, is there a list Cane Rosso isn't on? Maybe the Pizza Places That Suck list?

Nosh, which will soon open two more locations in the next year, is a "... must for anyone visiting Dallas." Wilcox recommends the tuna tartare, scallops and anything off the daily board.

Tim Byres' Smoke makes the list; Wilcox declares the brunch as one of the best he's ever had. Anywhere.

And Bolsa gets high accolades for bringing the farm to the table in Dallas, in an upscale, refurbished garage with a chill atmosphere.
