Modern Fine Dining

Chef Gorji puts the emphasis on flavor, not tradition at Canary By Gorji, one of the best fancy restaurants in Dallas for upscale mediterranean specialties, acclaimed steak and creative seafood. This small, fine-dining restaurant is designated one of D Magazine's Best Restaurants.

Gorji cooks from around the mediterranean basin, inter changing ingredients and techniques creating his signature upscale New Mediterranean menu. The changing menu includes prime cuts of tenderloin, Texas wild boar, pork and lamb t-bone as well as creative seafood dishes such as poached rainbow trout with yogurt and elephant garlic or the surprising mediterranean style gourmet catfish .

The wine list includes Mediterranean and international offerings. Boutique wines from Turkey, Israel, Lebanon, Spain and France and some luxurious high-end domestic wines complete the menu in this small, upscale restaurant in Dallas (Addison), TX.
