Chef Avner Samuel makes his way back to the Dallas culinary scene with another Nosh Bistro, this time in Preston Hollow.

Set to open in late summer 2019, Nosh Bistro is a revamped concept from the original restaurant of the same name.

Samuel has had quite the culinary career in Dallas over the last three decades. He has had more than 20 restaurants, including three previous iterations of Nosh. His last post was at Neiman Marcus in Plano.

Chef Samuel’s new menu will have Mediterranean, American and Asian cultural influences that were inspired by his recent stay in Israel, along with an emphasis on fresh ingredients in every dish. Guests can expect items such as eggs Benedict with beef tenderloin and French thin crepes with his own unique twist, he says.

“Nosh Bistro will serve dishes that people know and love, but they will have an elevated look and taste that you cannot find anywhere else,” he says.

Something on the menu that may be familiar to patrons that dined at his previous restaurants is a dish called “My Mother’s Salad.”  Samuel says it was a staple in his childhood.

The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner daily, and brunch every Sunday. A 12-seat chef’s table, an outdoor patio surrounded by green foliage and bar top dining that overlooks the display kitchen are some of the features. He is also adding children’s cooking classes.

“I have grandchildren of my own and cooking was something that I developed a passion for in my youth, so I hope to foster the same in today’s children,” he says.

People should expect meals made with fresh ingredients that don’t break the bank, he says.

“I hope that Nosh Bistro changes the way people dine in Dallas,” Samuel says.

Nosh will be located at 8611 Hillcrest Road. noshbistrodallas.com.
