Erin French’s highly acclaimed restaurant receives over 20,000 postcards for only a few slots, and all must arrive within a two-week period. No Opentable, phone calls, emails, texts, Facebook or any other ways of requesting a reservation. Snail mail only. The rumor is they’ve singlehandedly kept the local post office afloat.

The meat Mecca of Dallas is without a doubt, Knife located in the Highland Dallas located just off Central Expressway at Mockingbird and in Willowbend. This is the love-child of chef John Tesar who has elevated the steak experience, and the results are precious.
