Zagat’s best restaurant in DFW is …
Not one we would have picked.
Zagat's 2013 America's Top Restaurants guide officially launched Wednesday, and it named its best restaurant in Dallas-Fort Worth.
The winner: Saint-Emilion in Fort Worth.
Here's what Zagat wrote: Bernard Tronche’s “fantastique” “jewel” in the Cultural District is “always tops,” proclaim fans who vote it No. 1 for food in Dallas-Fort Worth, a tribute to the daily blackboard menu of “exquisite” fare from the South of France complemented by a “fabulous” wine list; “impeccable” service and a “quaint old house” setting are more reasons why it’s a “favorite destination” of many.
Wrote DMN restaurant critic Leslie Brenner in 2010: "Saint-Emilion's not perfect. But when it's good, it's very good. And it's reassuring to know there's something that feels so frankly French in Fort Worth - even down to service that, though wonderful sometimes, at other times can be as inhospitable as you might find in the most authentic auberge in Gascogne."
