Noted by publications like Bon Appetit and Southern Living, Abacus opened in 1997 and continues to be a popular place for Uptown Dallas notables. Chef Kent Rathbun, an Iron Chef America champion and nominee for several James Beard awards, serves contemporary global cuisine in a fine dining setting. Atmosphere is established by dark wood beams stretching across a low ceiling and leather chairs set around a flawlessly set table. Entree options range from lobster and scallion shooters to six or nine-course tasting menus that are offered Monday through Thursday.

Insider Tip:

Chef Rathbun himself dines at Abacus frequently, so don’t be surprised if you see him enjoying a meal a few tables away.
