Master list of Dallas restaurants opening May 1 for dine-in service

The party's back on, wheee — but with gloves, masks, social distancing. Mi Cocina

Good idea or bad, dozens of restaurants around Dallas plan to reopen for dine-in service on Friday, May 1.

In the face of the largest single-day spike in COVID-19 cases in Dallas County, the state of Texas has given permission to restaurants, movie theaters, and malls to reopen, as long as they limit occupancy to 25 percent.

It puts operators in a real dilemma: Do you follow the advice of health professionals and remain locked down, or do you live on the edge and try to squeak out a few bucks?

This list is about the second group, who in order to open must follow a set of regulations that includes no parties larger than six, and seating at least 6 feet apart; no valet parking, no salt shakers, and contactless payment is preferred.

Restaurant employees will wear masks and gloves. Customers are encouraged to wear face coverings when they're not eating.

This list includes independently owned restaurants as well as some chains, most locally owned. It does not include big national chains or fast-food restaurants.

(Many other restaurants in Dallas are open for takeout and curbside but have opted not to open for dine-in at this time.)
