Located in the Arts District, Stephan Pyles derives its name from its chef, Esquire Magazine's 2006 Chef of the Year and the "father of Southwestern cuisine." The walls of the dining room feature terra-cotta bricks from the original 1963 building, as well as artwork from local Dallas artists, but the glass-enclosed open kitchen is the real focal point. Light appetizers like mini-BLT's (made with heirloom tomatoes, arugula, and pig's belly) provide a counterpoint to hearty main courses like grass-fed, Texas beef tenderloin with cocktail crab legs.
