About Tastemaker Awards

The CultureMap Tastemaker Awards are an annual celebration of talent in Dallas-Fort Worth's restaurant and bar community, as selected by their peers. Our mission is to shine a spotlight on the people making the city's restaurant scene special and honor their innovation, energy, and creativity. 

In March and April, we'll feature all the nominees in a special editorial series. Then join us on April 20 at Sixty Five Hundred for a swanky tasting event and awards ceremony, emceed by Tim Love, where we'll celebrate the nominees and unveil the winners. Join us to mix and mingle with the city's top culinary talent and fellow foodies.
