Located just five minutes north of downtown, the affluent town of Highland Park not only boasts exclusive boutiques and some of the highest-dollar residential real estate in the country, but it's also home to quite a few of Dallas' most beloved eateries
Take Café Pacific, a Highland Park Village mainstay that has been serving fresh seafood and steaks to a loyal following of dedicated regulars for over 35 years. There's also Mi Cocina, which draws in locals and A-list celebrities alike for its Tex-Mex fare and legendary margaritas.
In the mood for Italian? Then head to Taverna, a rustic Italian restaurant that specializes in pizzas and risotto. This place is so popular that there's usually a line to get in the door. Another must-try is Nonna, a tiny trattoria that turns out some of the city's best house-made pasta. Speaking of local favorites, most everyone will tell you that a trip to Dallas should always include a stop at Javier’s Gourmet Mexicano– where the modern Mexico City cuisine is always in high demand.
