Dallas’ restaurant scene is back at it with new spots opening just in time for 2021. For those who’ve been anywhere near the AT&T Discovery District lately, you’ve probably seen groups dining out on one of the recently opened restaurants’ heated outdoor patios, or families staring in awe at the massive screen showing Wonder Woman 1984 ads. It’s pretty incredible. Next weekend, the district’s flagship restaurant, Hawthorn, is finally ready to open its doors, along with a couple of other promising new restaurants in the city.
Here are the newest Dallas dining destinations to know.
Hawthorn (Opening January 15)
208 S. Akard Street, Dallas
The newest addition and flagship restaurant of downtown Dallas’ AT&T Discovery District, Hawthorn is an upscale spot that will serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The new restaurant will have a raw bar, as well as full menu of seafood and steak. You’ll also be able to choose from starters like wagyu meatballs and shrimp gyoza, or opt for the sushi menu which includes a signature “Hawthorn Roll” with caviar, lobster, akaushi beef, and more. Hawthorn is currently taking reservations on OpenTable beginning on January 15.
Crisp & Green (Opening January 12)
6565 Hillcrest Avenue, Suite 140
This Minnesota-based fast casual health food spot is expanding into Dallas this month with its first Texas location at Hilltop Plaza in University Park. From salads to grain bowls, there will be a lot of healthy options to try, as well as free outdoor community workouts taking place at the location. You can swing by for a fitness class and a smoothie or just stop by to try out Crisp & Green’s newest seasonal items.
Vidorra Addison (Now Open)

A Deep Ellum favorite and Mexican-inspired restaurant has expanded to Addison. The second location of Vidorra offers a spacious, 2,000-square-foot patio, as well as delicious cocktails, tequilas, and Mexican-inspired dishes that the first location became popular for. Enchiladas, quesadillas, tacos, and more are available for brunch, lunch, and dinner seven days a week. And happy hour is Monday through Friday from 3 pm to 6 pm.
