Driftwood Sailing With A Smooth Start

by Steven Doyle    photos by Joey Stewart

A week before Oak Cliff’s newest restaurant opened, Driftwood, we checked out the new menu and digs.  We were happy to report that it looked extremely promising and we were excited to see chef  Omar Flores, formerly of Abacus, leading the fight in the kitchen.

We found the seafood to be fresh and inviting.   

We went back in recently for another look-see and we are happy to report that the dishes have actually been stepped up to an even greater plateau and think that Driftwood is a keeper.

Check out these marvelous photos from Joey Stewart who mentioned, “Finally a non Japanese restaurant that has some nice Sakes on the wine list.”
