With chef J Chastain in charge of the kitchen, Stephan Pyles’ flagship has evolved into one of the best restaurants in Dallas. Formal and focused, his plates dance around the edges of Modern Texas cuisine with originality and aplomb. This year will be its last, so don’t delay if you want to check it out. Next year Pyles will open a new flagship up the block, also with Chastain in charge.

After a few years of ups and downs, Stephan Pyles’ flagship restaurant in the Dallas Arts District has come roaring back. Its new executive chef, J Chastain, turns out thoughtful, vibrant, seasonal plates whose flavors dance around the edges of Modern Texas cuisine, with South American and Mediterranean influences tossed in the mix. Ceviches are better than ever. Pastry chef Keith Cedotal’s desserts are terrific, too. The restaurant will close at the end of the year in advance of relocating, so now’s the time to go. Closed Sunday. Full bar. Leslie Brenner/Guide
