The name sneakily says it all: fried chicken from scratch. In addition to the perfectly cooked chicken, either skillet fried or rotisseried, Chicken Scratch is especially well known for its physical space. The restaurant is home to a huge, enclosed outdoor space making it perfect for nice days or for kids to run around in. Make sure you try some of their made-from-scratch sauces like the homemade ranch, tejano red and traditional fried chicken gravy.
Eno's is a niche when you don't want fast-food or high-end dining. Appetizers include Lemon Pepper Calamari featuring anchovy dipping sauce and a House Salad with provolone, Maytag cheese, peppered pork belly, chopped enpe and roasted lemon vinaigrette. Entrées include selections like Northside Kitchen Sandwich with Italian beef, sport peppers and pickled vegetables and Southside (White Pie) with garlic, basil, anchovies, tomato and ricotta. The meal is complete with Eno's Sundae featuring house-made spumoni or cannolis. The handsome casual interior makes this a great place to relax for the evening in the trendy Bishop Arts District. - Raine Devries
The Old Monk has bagged the 'Best of Dallas' title, by the Dallas Observer, for three consecutive years. The decor is based on a monastery concept - wooden walls, wooden floor and wooden plank tables. The beer list is not what you can call extensive, but do try the Belgian beer on your visit to the place. Charming waitresses bring you large portions of anything that you order (Mussels Fritas are highly recommended). The place attracts a sophisticated crowd and is the best venue to catch up on old friends over a few glasses of beer.
A restaurant from which patrons expect nothing but the very best, Ferrari's Italian Villa is the place to head to for truly scrumptious Italian fare. No matter which dish you choose, you can be sure it will be prepared in a delicious, traditionally Italian sauce that will give it a wonderful flavor. PEI mussels in spicy tomato sauce and flash-fried calamari are the perfect way to begin your Italian meal. The pan-seared salmon, sautéed chicken breast with prosciutto and sage and filet mignon with red wine peppercorn sauce that follow manage to exceed your expectations. You can complement your meal with something from the extensive wine list.
