Dallas Restaurants: What Do We Need? Ctd.

What kind of restaurant would Major Tony Nelson and Jeannie do in Dallas?
What kind of restaurant would Major Tony Nelson and Jeannie do in Dallas now?

Last night, our food truck reporter, and all-around good guy, George Lewis sent me a link to a story I posted in October 2009. I posed the question:

 The inside-the-loop-outside-the-loop foodie argument drives me nuts. There is great food all over this area if you are willing to drive. But if you had one restaurant wish, what would you like to see in Dallas? I know what I want it’s a fleet of these, STAT. Your turn.

Your comments make a fun read. Somebody paid attention. I not only got my food trucks, I got my truckaurants (Relish, Nammi). Other wishes granted:

 * “Cafes/sidewalk cafes that open onto the street, especially in the Arts District”

* “A Dallas Button’s”

* “Oaxacan, or even Yucatecan [sic] style restaurant would be awesome

* “We need a place like Salumi in Seattle. We have the cheese producers starting up but     not any cured meats to round out a picnic”

* “In And Out burger”

* “Better seafood selection”

* “Pizza:  Brick-oven made, thinnest crust ever, and most fantastic toppings ever”

* “Central Texas style BBQ place that’s consistently good”

Let’s play round two. What food or restaurant would you like to see in Dallas? (Notice: we didn’t ask for cupcakes.)
