Editor’s note: Another week has come and gone, and there’s a lot we all probably missed. But we’re looking out for you, kid. Here are the most popular stories from this past week:
1. Top 100: The very best restaurants in Dallas. There are lists, and then there is the list to top them all: The Top 100, in which we rank the very best restaurants in Dallas. It reflects what’s happening in Dallas dining right now — a mix of great new places and classics that never go out of style, a combination of cuisines and atmospheres, thoughtfully ordered from 1 all the way down to 100.
2. Behind the scenes at a photo shoot with 6 Dallas style authorities. We’re down to the final six in our third annual CultureMap Stylemaker Awards, in which we celebrate the most fashionable men and women in Dallas. (And you should vote again, this time to determine the readers’ choice winner.) We interviewed all six during a photo shoot at Weld.
3. Cool then-and-now photos of downtown Dallas take us way back in time. What a difference 100 years makes — especially when it comes to views of downtown Dallas. If you don’t believe us, then just take a look through these then-and-now images that offer a rich glimpse into the city’s past.
4. 5 Dallas-Fort Worth coffee spots join national homage to Gilmore Girls. As a ramp-up to the Netflix revival of ’00s TV show Gilmore Girls, five coffee shops across Dallas-Fort Worth hosted one-day pop-ups on October 5, briefly re-creating the spirit of Luke’s Diner.
5. HG Sply Co. owner spreads Greenville Avenue restaurant magic to Rockwall. Called Standard Service, the restaurant is conceived as a casual neighborhood spot serving Texas cuisine, cocktails, beer, and wine. It opens October 10 at 760 W. Ralph Hall Pkwy.
