Feast on the flavors of Dallas’ toniest enclave

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.    

Whether you’re looking for a casual lunch spot or a high-end dining experience, the Highland Park area offers a little something for everybody. Here are the top ten options worth seeking out.
