D Magazine 100 Best Restaurants | We Are In Dallas 'Improper' And We Cook From The Heart
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.
In Canary By Gorji cooking classes, the emphasis is on cooking techniques. The class is followed by a three course dinner with wines where everyone gets to enjoy the dishes they learned earlier in Chef Gorji's kitchen. Participants report that they have used the tips and techniques that they learned to make gourmet meals just like in an elegant, fancy restaurant, but in their own home for family and friends.
Nation’s Restaurant News named Canary by Gorji among the top five Dallas restaurants that give diners a "personal touch". In their Trending Tables report which surveys establishments in 10 top food cities across the country, their Trending Tables report called the food "imaginative, unusual and highly personal, as evidenced by the constant and buzzing presence of Chef Gorji himself."

We are very small with only 7 tables. We believe dining should be pleasurable and relaxed, so we do not rush you through your dinner to "turn the table" to seat more people, we do not have televisions and unfortunately cannot accommodate young children. We thank you for your understanding of these matters and hope you enjoy your time with us when dining in Dallas.
