View Comments ()


    Samar is on the edge of downtown Dallas.

    The Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex has yet another reason to celebrate. (As if the Rangers beating the Yankees, again, was not enough.)  Esquire magazine has named Dallas restaurant Samar by Stephan Pyles as one of the Best New Restaurants 2010. 

    Located minutes from the Dallas Art District, Samar serves small international plates inspired by Indian, Spanish, and the Eastern Mediterranean cuisine.  Translated as ‘late night conversation spoken softly between two lovers,’ Samar offers intimate and spacious seating areas including a red room, white room, tandoor bar, and outdoor-tented terrace with hookah lounge.
