Newcomer Brian Zenner opened the Belly and Trumpet in the Uptown neighborhood last year. Once the site of a gourmet hot dog eatery, Zenner offers affordable, globally-infused and tres chic small plates with a Mediterranean bent. An early darling of critics, Belly has weathered that treacherous first year to be named one of the top restaurants in Dallas.
Peeky Toe Crab Beignes and Wagu Beef Tongue are a few appetizers that are both interesting and flavorful with Kimchi Omelet and Roasted Duck Breast heading up the main course offerings. The wine list is eclectic while remaining approachable. Definitely worth the trip to Uptown to see if the critics are right!
