Gorji Celebrates 20th Anniversary on March 1st!

Chef Gorji at restaurantDALLAS, February 2023 – Gorji restaurant will celebrate its 20-year anniversary March 1st. Throughout the month each table receives a choice of a complimentary dessert or one of Gorji Gourmet’s Pomegranate Vinaigrette, Dipping Oil & Marinade, Pomodoro or Arrabiata sauce in appreciation of dining with us on this occasion.

Gorji features New Mediterranean Cuisine including sustainable steak and seafood. The emphasis is on food, flavors and guests enjoying their evening. They are open three nights for dine-in and have 5 tables. One seating per night allows guests to not feel rushed and the staff to perform at their best. Texas Steak Cook-Off Champion, Chef Gorji cooks each meal. This format provides time for him to personally shop for ingredients which leads to inspiration for new dishes.

The past 20 years have been full of ups and downs – thankfully mostly enjoyable ups! We’ve gone through our share of name changes, but our dedication to the quality of food and hospitality has remained consistent from Canary Café Japanese By Day/ Mediterranean By Night, Canary by Gorji and now simply Gorji.—Chef Gorji
