Where we chowed down this year

dallas best restaurants 2013!

Reminiscing makes us hungry. Good thing 2013 gave us an abundance of restaurants, bars, and coffeehouses to satisfy most any craving that came our way. Here’s where you spotted us.

Supporting a trend with the best kale salads in the city.

Sipping artisan coffee with a side of taxidermy at Mudsmith.

Doing our best Jackie O over cocktails at Kennedy Room.

Digging into BBQ, hot dogs, and beer at the earliest Trinity Groves spots — checking out the first incarnation of Kitchen LTO.

Drinking single-origin java or swirling a glass of malbec at Ascension Coffee.

Traveling to Thailand by way of Pakpao (which just launched brunch, BTW).

Letting our pooch get some exercise while scarfing a burger at Mutts.

Taking in a blockbuster and dinner at Look Cinemas and Alamo Drafthouse.

Using our noodle at Tanoshii Ramen + Bar (now open for lunch).

Rewarding ourselves after a run around White Rock Lake with a cheese plate and bottle of chard at Urban Vines.

Flashing back to the days of the five-and-dime at The Woolworth downtown.
