CultureMap, the Dallas lifestyle blog describes Canary By Gorji as having "gracious service and an exotic "new Mediterranean" menu that's as impressive as it is unexpected. Dedicated chef-owner Mansour Gorji uses novel ingredients such as pomegranate on dishes that incorporate a swath of influences, including French, Greek, Italian, Spanish and North African. You'll feel like this is your special discovery."
Food Lovers Guide To Dallas/Fort Worth says " Intimate dining at this 10-table retreat means a relaxed evening of inspired food. Chef-owner Gorji has won legions of devout fans who are utterly bewitched by his food and honest, warm smile."
Gorji, an engineer-turned-chef, a restauranteur and creator of Gorji Gourmet Foods has lived on three continents, and has just passed a quarter century calling Texas home, twelve of those as chef-owner of the acclaimed, intimate, 10-table Canary By Gorji restaurant in Dallas. A working chef, he nightly cooks his signature New Mediterranean cuisine that is detailed in his Zing! By Gorji Cookbook. Often going against the grain of traditional culinary practice, his creative take on cooking philosophies mixes science and old world hot and cold theories to create his unique recipes. About Chef

We are very small with only 10 tables. We believe dining should be pleasureable 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.
