I was e-mailing a friend about a web site I found that catalogs indie-coffeehouses (i.e. not Starbucks) around the nation. He replied that it would be great if there was a similar web site that catalogs small, local bistros that use local, in-season ingredients and have entrees for $18 or less. I agreed, and it got me thinking. There are a few places like this in Austin (e.g. Eastside), but does such a restaurant exist in Dallas?
Bonus points if it is not in a strip center.
