Bishop Arts District
Lucia has long been known as one of the hardest reservations to come by in Dallas. After closing at COVID’s onset, the beloved Bishop Arts haunt has just reopened, so pardon us if we’re happy to say that’s still the case: Now housed in the former Macellaio space, tables are even tougher to score, as the new dining room is set up for social distancing.
But expect the same pre-pandemic array of delicate handmade pastas, plus a spring chef’s-choice salumi plate with capicola, mortadella and their kin, and some of the best chicken liver mousse around. Even better: There’s no bucatini (with guanciale and spring onion) shortage here!
Dining status: Indoor and patio seating, to-go paused while the restaurant reopens.
