If there was ever a way to explore the DFW Metroplex, this is it. We often look forward to the food on our vacations, but seldom do we think of our own home as a food touring destination. Food is a way to experience an entire culture, the people that surround it, and what makes it special.
Get outside while the weather is still mild and visit these restaurants with an outdoor patio.
When you have the best ingredients, the experience becomes elevated. Skipping the salt and pepper to enjoy local homegrown flavors is a part of the journey of Farm to Table cuisine.
