The Knife Restaurant is located at 5300 E Mockingbird Lane. This restaurant features Executive Chef John Tesar, who was a contestant (twice!) on Bravo’s Top Chef and has worked with Anthony Bourdain.

The Front Room Tavern 

The Front Room Tavern is known for serving upscale food with a down-to-earth feel. They were awarded the Wine Spectacular Award of Excellence in 2016, as well as the Winner of Open Table’s Dinner Choice Award in 2016. You can find them inside of the Hotel Lumen located at 6101 Hillcrest Avenue. Many of the locals love the casual, yet elegant atmosphere here and some say that the Happy Hour is one of the best in Dallas. The Front Room Tavern serves all the classics like eggs and pancakes, but the Avocado Toast is exquisite!

The Velvet Taco

If you’re looking for a unique take on the classic taco, look no further than The Velvet Taco, one of the best taco restaurants in Dallas. Their menu features an eclectic assortment of non-traditional taco ingredients. The Chicken and Waffle tacos are so decadent with a mix of sweet and savory. I’ll let you in on a secret: The Velvet Taco has a Backdoor Chicken Special that you can get every Monday for just $10! This special comes with one whole rotisserie chicken (that they cook made-to-order), corn pico, salsa, and corn tortillas. They are located at 3012 N Henderson Avenue in Dallas, a five-minute drive from The Lofts at Mockingbird Station.
