McCormick & Schmick's offers the finest seafood, flown in daily, aged steaks, and hand crafted cocktails. Our menus are printed twice daily, based on availability, freshness, and quality.

"Since the closing of the Dallas location I've missed this restaurant's meals. Reasonably priced and consistently good is what you can expect. Nothing too edgy but still interesting preparations in right-sized portions. Perfect date night establishment. Just wish I didn't have to drive to Austin to enjoy it!"

Centrally located between the West Village and Knox - Henderson areas, Salum is a casual yet elegant and comfortable space composed by Julio Quiñones, one of Dallas’ most progressive young designers. The spacious dining room displays a welcoming palette of brown, green and beige, with a sleek open kitchen as the focal point. Salum combines the intimacy of a neighborhood establishment with the quality of a fine dining restaurant with an atmosphere that is approachable and distinctive yet unpretentious ~ a marriage of vision, passion and skill with the goal of providing its visitors with an extraordinary dining experience. Owner and Chef Abraham Salum offers an array of contemporary American cuisine that combines the highest quality seasonal ingredients with a nuanced use of contrasting and complementary flavors to create a vibrant and visually inviting menu. Menus change once a month. Parties of 5 or more are not available on line.

"Salum never disappoints. Whether a special occasion or just a nice evening out you will find great food with attentive service. There is enough selection in each category that everyone will find something to satisfy. I never hesitate to recommend this restaurant."

Casa Rubia at Trinity Groves is the new modern tapas restaurant from Chef Omar Flores and Jonn Baudoin. Chef Omar's menu will spotlight seasonal ingredients taking classics, putting a spin on them and making them with his flair. Catalonia is a favorite area in Spain for Chef Omar so the menu utilizes a lot of seafood. Paellas is a signature dish at Casa Rubia which changes daily. A full Spanish wine list, nice selection of sherries and Spanish / South American beers compliment the tapas menu.

"It killed me when Chef Flores left Driftwood as that was my favorite Dallas restaurant. At least he didn't leave Dallas!! This new venture is excellent, as one would expect from someone as talented as he. There are plenty of sizes of dishes to fit all appetites. The choices seem limitless with veggie, seafood, beef, fowl all represented. You won't go wrong with any choice but be sure not to miss the crispy artichokes nor the quail. It's a seasonal menu so it may be different when you go."

Located on Main Street in the heart of downtown Dallas, CBD Provisions is a spirited Texas brasserie that evinces the growing vitality of the central business district. Developed by Consilient Restaurants, this urban-rustic eatery features modern interpretations of Texas tavern fare from Executive Chef Michael Sindoni, who employs an artisanal sensibility and strong commitment to local and sustainably raised ingredients. CBD Provisions is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week, and serves a complete menu until midnight on the weekends. The Sunday brunch is not to be missed. Menu items range from buckwheat pancakes with local berries and bourbon barrel aged maple syrup for breakfast to BBQ gulf oysters with absinthe whipped lardo for dinner. The interiors, conceived by New York-based design architect Claudia Woods, are equal parts rich and raw-historic brick walls, bronze cabinetry, rustic wood beam ceilings, tufted leather banquettes and antique mirrors.

"The purpose of this meal was to try the Pig Head Carnitas. It was a popular choice as 2 others were visible from our table. While I would caution the squeamish over the visual aspect, this is truly a taste treat one needs to enjoy. It is extremely tender and flavorful, but VERY rich as well. Best to have it as a meal for 4, or better, as an appetizer for 8 as a neighboring table did. The accompanying tomatillo salsa was especially good. They tend to sell out so best to reserve one at the time you reserve your table. It's not to be missed."

"Hostesses were unable to keep up with the 7:30 onslaught. Huge backup at the door. Even with a reservation and checked in still had to enlist a manager to get seated. That aside, the food was great as always. Had the Pollo Budin Azetca…the best dish I've ever had there. Also, their salsa can't be beat!"

"I'll chalk it up to ordering the wrong dishes. I was looking forward to Easter Brunch as my 1st experience. My oyster taco 1st course came topped with runny cole slaw that almost spoiled the dish; the oysters were excellent though. Dining companions ordered carnitas and were very pleased. 2nd course was Gulf Catch Hash. Fish over quartered potatoes with cold crab salad atop a poached egg. Each part was ok, but the parts didn't work together to make a whole dish. The crab/egg part was unpleasantly tepid due to the cold seafood on top of a warm egg. Companion had chicken fried steak that was excellent. Dessert was butterscotch pudding..ok. Companion had lemon tart that was excellent. Didn't win the lottery with this one."
