The February 1987 D Magazine cover story is a guide to the most romantic dining establishments in Dallas.

“A neurologist once explained to me (after I had ordered two desserts rather than choose between them) that the desire for food and the desire for sex emanate from the same pan of the brain,” writes Liz Logan. “At the time, I though it was a pretty weak come-on. But it turns out he was right…These are restaurants for lovers who are as serious about food as each other.”

The list includes Cafe Royal, The Mansion, and Beau Nash. Click the images below to take a step back in Dallas dining history.
