Restaurant operators have changed constantly since the coronavirus swept north Texas and shut down dining rooms on March 17. Since then, the rules have been repealed, regulations put in place, and the status of the facilities seems to change daily.

Our goal is to keep you informed about which restaurants are open and closed. But now we have an even broader list with our new Dallas Restaurant Directory.

This new page lists your preferred dining destinations, which can be searched by neighborhood, cuisine, name and / or take away, delivery or dining options.

Each restaurant in the directory lists how it serves food and the precautions it takes for its guests and staff.

The best part of this list is that it is far from finished. It’s a living guide that business owners can update themselves to have the most current information available in this one place.

Information changes daily – as we know from the beginning of this idea through to the actual rollout – and if guests see outdated information, they can also let us know. (On a restaurant’s information page, just click the flag next to “Options change frequently. It’s best to call the restaurant to confirm this. Did we do something wrong? Please message us.”)

The goal is for this to be a landing spot anyone can come to when looking for their next meal to support local restaurants.

You can find this directory here or on the homepage. Click the drop-down menu on the left, expand the Food & Drink section and select Dallas Restaurant Directory: Take-out / Delivery / Dine-in.

We call on Dallas chefs, restaurant owners and managers to action: try the directory today and see if your business is listed. Then use the submission form to add or post updates.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us directly.
