20 Feet
This East Dallas fish shack should be a model for anyone who wants to open a restaurant. Pick a singular theme, narrow your focus to a manageable number of dishes, hone and refine those ideas constantly and then watch the customers go nuts. If you want fish and chips in Dallas, this is where you go. Fried shrimp? Done. And while there are other delicious things to be found at Marc Cassel's seafood restaurant, they aren't thrown into the mix at the expense of the golden fried seafood. Sure, ramen looks a little out of place next to a lobster roll, but when distractions taste this good you welcome them.

Joyce and Gigi's
Joyce and Gigi's is everything you could want in a neighborhood restaurant. It's warm, just stylish enough, has great energy and the drinks will knock you out. Have a seat at the bar and within seconds you'll be talking to the customers sitting beside you. Sit at a table and you'll likely end up talking to nearby customers too. It's a very social dining room. And the food is good too.

Bolivian cuisine is a rarity in Dallas, so the appetizers, soups ,turnovers and other specialties stand out as unique. Feeling timid? Order the churrasco. You'll recognize it as steak and potatoes, except yucca replaces the spuds. Not to mention a few links of house-made sausage are tossed in for fun.

I love 20 Feet!!  We're so lucky to have it in our neighborhood.  Best fish and chips in Dallas for sure!  Plus, much, much more!

Terrific brisket, well seasoned and tender, with that great pink ring.

everyone should try the beef heart tartare at joyce & gigi's.  don't think about what it is, and don't let scott dissuade you.  it is a transcendental experience, and a gutsy dish.  and, selfishly speaking, i do not want it to go away.

Jack's brisket is amazing! Any more tender and you'd need a spoon to eat it with. Great smokey flavor and bark, too. Keep up the good work, Jack!

Lark on the Park is wonderful! We went there after a disastrous appearance at Kitchen LTO. Fortunately the meal at Lark salvaged our date night.

I was at Slow Bone this rainy afternoon.  Jack really has it dialed in now.  The Brisket was the perfect balance of smoke and moisture and beefy goodness. The pork ribs were the juuuust right--tender but not fall apart and just the right amount of chew.  His sides never fail either.  Nice work Jack!
