Cooking from around the mediterranean basin, interchanging ingredients and techniques, Gorji puts the emphasis on flavor, not traditions.

D magazine calls this small, intimate restaurant in North Dallas "one of the most underrated in town. Chef Gorji’s brand of mostly-Mediterranean-with-a-touch-of-Texas-style food is distinctively different from other global menus." The review goes on to say that ".. Gorji’s food, is clean and naturally delicious."

Even though he specializes in Mediterranean Cuisine, Gorji is the two time winner of the Texas Steak Cook-off Championship. He often hears "one of the best steak restaurants in Dallas" from his guests. In addition to his award-winning steaks, the menu includes dishes such as wild boar tenderloin and lamb t-bone as well as creative seafood dishes like Mediterranean Spearfish and watermelon and octopus appetizer.

Boutique mediterranean and international wines complete the menu in this charming 10-table upscale restaurant in Dallas, Texas.
