Dallas Top 25 Restaurants: March 2014

We’re excited to roll out our premier Foodable Top 25 Restaurants list for Dallas! As a continuously growing food city that, in our opinion, doesn’t get enough cred, the list below just proves that this food city is more than just oversized, meaty steakhouses (as one often stereotypes of Texas dining).

Before we get started, it’s important to note — for those of you who have not familiarized yourself with how these lists work — that this is not a hand-selected list, nor influenced by the Foodable team whatsoever. Organic data is pulled through our proprietary Restaurant Social Media Index, which tracks millions of U.S. consumers across 17 social platforms. (Read more about how it works here.)

Kicking off in the No. 1 spot for March is FT33. Taking pride in seasonal ingredients garnered directly from farmers and artisans, FT33 describes its meals as “inventive and surprising,” while never sacrificing the flavor of the original ingredients. Its website is just as simple and straightforward, with social presence highlighted on each page. Guests can also make reservations directly through FT33’s site. By maintaining consistency both in and out of the restaurant, it’s not surprising that FT33 has received many accolades, including Best DFW Chefs for 2013 by Dallas News and as a “Ten Best New Restaurants in Dallas” by D Magazine.

Also rounding out the Top 5 for March are Abacus, Hattie’s, Boulevardier, and Tillman’s Roadhouse. Check out the full list below!
