Best Mediterranean 2017
Brothers Adam and Jalal Chanaa first hit the restaurant scene in Dallas with Ali Baba Mediterranean Grill. It quickly became popular, and they opened two more locations in Dallas. But when it came to expanding in Fort Worth, they went with a new name. Terra offers staple Mediterranean dishes such as falafel, gyros and tabouli that’s both made to order and also served during lunch buffet.

Having built a loyal following at its first location in Arlington, Istanbul Grill expanded west, opening its second location in The Cassidy Building at Sundance Square. The restaurant offers a perfectly seasoned array of shish plates like lamb, beef and chicken, as well as a flaky, buttery baklava to finish things off. And if you’re wondering whether the weekend belly dancer that visits the Arlington location will make her way to Fort Worth – the answer is yes, eventually, Istanbul Grill says.
