Flashback Friday: The Food of Dallas

Take a step back in Dallas dining history.
By |

The March 1993 issue of D Magazine serves as a shopper’s guide to the best food in Dallas. “When it comes to food, Dallas is like one big supermarket” the author writes, “its aisles stretching out across the city, through individual neighborhoods and into the suburbs, its shelves stocked with vegetarian tamales, thyme pies, crawfish ravioli, sashimi, free-range chicken, Black Forest ham, ancho chilies and fresh baguettes.”

The 11-page feature highlights the best wine stores, ethnic markets, caterers, takeout, bakeries, and more.
