Texas Monthly Names Top 2022 Rookie Restaurants

With the pandemic making patio dining a necessity, the alfresco effect isn’t slowing down anytime soon as warm weather and longer days are right around the corner thanks to Spring Forward. I wanted to follow up on Texas Monthly’s annual “Where to Eat Now” spread and surface a new seasonal angle: best places to outdoor dine in DFW.

Food critic Pat Sharpe dishes out the top Texas patios for the spring/summer season in her “The Best Places to Dine Outdoors in 2022” package feature (there’s a few that may surprise you), and she even gives her recommendations on what to munch on, too. See below for who made the list:
