Celebrating 15 Years of Culinary Adventure
Innovative Food and Policies Keep the Focus on Canary By Gorji’s Guests
DALLAS, Feb. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Canary By Gorji celebrates its 15 year anniversary in March 2018. Beating the odds for success as an independent chef-driven restaurant in a major metropolitan area, especially one as competitive as Dallas-Fort Worth, is not an easy task. Instead of a “bigger is better” outlook, Gorji has kept it simple at his 8-table restaurant.
“Less is more—and—definitely more sustainable,” says the chef.
With this philosophy in mind, Gorji has been continually upgrading, evolving and refining his cooking and dining concepts. Canary’s intimate and upscale vibe reflects the bold steps taken in pursuit of keeping the focus on a pleasurable dining experience. Canary was rated #1 in food, #1 in hospitality and #3 overall in Dallas in 2017 by Renzell, the new national restaurant rating system. Eater says, it has “reliably been the best restaurant in Addison for over a decade.”
