The way to the heart is through the stomach

Too many restaurants in Dallas that you can never seem to try them all? With Taste of Dallas: Valentine’s Special, you and your significant other can try top dishes from many of the fan favorites in Dallas. It also makes a great first date, especially if you are trying to get it in before Valentine’s Day.

Or, if you are single you can take your stomach on a Valentine’s date – we won’t judge (out loud).

The event will be broken down into various categories:

  • Hot New Restaurants: 6 of Dallas’ most popular restaurants.
  • Rising Stars: Best new pop-ups, food tucks, and restaurants in Dallas.
  • Fresh From The Oven: Dallas’ hottest pastries, and dessert chefs.

  • Historic Margarita Trail: Sample an array of margaritas in the city that created the first frozen margarita.
