In the words of Andy Williams, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”

From August 11-17, DFW’s most elite fine dining establishments welcome patrons to dine at a much diminished cost from what is normal. It’s the once-a-year-opportunity for Dallasites to be fancy and try out spots their finances typically wouldn’t allow them to indulge. Given that “the DFW metroplex has more restaurants per capita than any other metropolitan area in the United States,” this week of feasting has become something the residents of North Texas look forward to every year. 

As of now, restaurants are already taking reservations. Ones of highest-profile stature – Stephen Pyles, the Mansion, and others – will fill their reservation slots sooner than later; so book early if you want to get a table. Something new this year is a 
First Course DFW Restaurant Week Kick-Off Partyon August 7th in Fair Park, an event designed to spur excitement for the gluttonous week ahead.

Below is the list of participating restaurants. Look over their online menus, read some Yelp reviews, then head to OpenTable or call directly to make a reservation. Bon Appétit!
