Where to Eat Dinner in Dallas

Treat your tastebuds to the big flavors, acclaimed menus and multicultural cuisine that have established Dallas as one of the top foodie cities in the nation.

Dallas may be known for smoky barbecue, big portions and Tex-Mex classics, but as you'll discover when visiting for Tourism Academy, the city is also home to chef-driven concepts that have drawn acclaim from the James Beard Foundation, innovative international menus, chic rooftop hangouts and even a mile-long stretch of must-try margaritas.

The City of Dallas does not currently require masking or vaccine requirements to dine at local restaurants. It is recommended that you make reservations in advance to ensure a seat at your preferred restaurant. Be sure to check the restaurant's website for the latest menus, hours and any restaurant-specific health and safety protocols.

Here are a few recommended eateries to dine not far from Tourism Academy 2022 venues.

Arts District (near the Dallas Marriott Downtown)

Deep Ellum (near The Studio at The Factory)

Tempest Staff Picks (worthy of an Uber or Lyft)
