What is the Next Dallas Food Trend?

We’ve had petit fours, cupcakes, whoopie pies (sorta), and frozen yogurt. If you had a million dollars, check that, I mean at least two million dollars, what new “trend” or would you bet on? Probably too late for a taco joint. What’s the next big deal?

  1. @DGirl:”The Austin of old was teeming with cool people, but now it’s full of New Yawkers and other people”

    Do you realize us Yankees can vote now and own property?

  2. I know, Scagnetti. I sound silly and antebellum but the Austin of years ago isn’t what it is today, for better or worse. I miss the old days. If you’re a Yankee then you probably don’t get it.

  3. Dallas area is not truly TRENDY..it’s predictible.I see very little in the Food or/and restaurant scene here…sorry!

  4. @jo bennett. not being trendy isn’t a bad thing. Trying to be trendy but failing is.

    What does it mean to say you see very little in the food and/or restaurant scene here? Are you having a hard time finding restaurants? no, of course not. You’re saying we’re not on the cutting edge. Dallas needs to appreciate the places that are doing un-trendy food very well before we go making the rules. its the old, “you have to know the rules before you can break them” adage.

    Dallas could stand to be a bit more Portland, and a lot less wanna-be LA and NY.

  5. We are a mere 7 days away from J. Blacks from Austin opening on Henderson. I took a peek at the build out last night and it looks awesome. Competition breeds a happy me. They already have their wifi in place (needed it last night while at NST).

    Think small plates, and cool retro drinks like sazerac and Hemmingways.

  6. Hi Steven! I’ve tried to eat at Rusty’s half a dozen times- the line is always out the door! Ugh, for tacos?

  7. Ha, Elizabeth you need to call me. I have a secret backdoor relationship at 43 of the best taco stands in Dallas. Code word: FEED ME. See you at the Wine and Dine tomorrow night? Eddie Deen’s. Yum.
