Although it has roots stemming from the 1960's hippie culture, the modern farm-to-table movement really started taking off in the early 2000's.
A focus on direct lines of supply from local farmers to the plates of restaurant goers was the heart of the movement from the start. Sustainable agriculture, ethically raised livestock, and organic farming methods have also become priorities associated with this food trend.
This guide features three upscale dining experiences near our Dallas, Texas apartments that combine chef curated cuisine and top-notch fresh and local ingredients.
FT33 | 1617 Hi Line Drive
Chef Matt McCallister has designed this haute cuisine experience for those looking to experience a truly gourmet interpretation of the farm-to-table movement.
The menu is prix fixe which allows you to chose one dish from each of the 4-course menus. Expert staff will help you pair wine or spirits to enjoy with your dinner.
Ranked as one of The Best in DFW in 2015 by the Dallas Morning News, no gastronomic tour of city would be complete without a visit to FT33. Be sure to make your reservation well in advance of your visit since this popular destination is often booked up.
Texas Spice | 555 Lamar Street
Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, this casual-chic dining experience is the brainchild of Swedish chef, Jan Loov. The rustic interior has a warm and inviting ambiance full of depth thanks to reclaimed woods that give the space a rich yet casual feel.
Don't miss the breakfast buffet from 6:00am - 10:30am daily for a sampling of brunch style offerings perfect for entertaining clients. The menu showcases traditional homestyle Texas morning favorites such as brisket hash and huevos rancheros.
For a more romantic getaway, book an evening reservation to enjoy local foods cooked to perfection such as the house made jalapeño sausage or the gulf shrimp. Or, enjoy signature cocktails with delightful starters like the local cheese and sausage board before enjoying evening entertainment in the heart of Dallas.
Bolsa | 614 West Davis
You can find this gem tucked away just west of the Bishop Arts District, making it an excellent location to cap off a day of boutique shopping at its finest. Although the ambiance is casual-chic, the food and libations are modern and sophisticated.
The menu (and cocktails) are constantly shifting to make the most of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Lean meats from local Texas ranchers are the focus of many of the main courses.
Fresh fruits and herbs infuse the many signature cocktails. Enjoy Killing Time after a long day of shopping. It features thyme, Falernum, cucumber, and lemon muddled with gin for a refreshing drink that pairs perfectly with the wide selection of farm-to-table appetizers on offer.
