Food is an interesting part of the American culture because it is something that can be both familiar and alien at the same time. As we grow and mature our taste in food expands. This expansion of tastes spawns creativity in how our food is crafted and consumed. Due in large part to their creativity, Deep Ellum Restaurants have emerged as a favorite of Dallas foodies.
While the idea of a foodie is a national trend, the Deep Ellum neighborhood is certainly a prime target for a generation of diners that seek an adventurous experience. Driven to explore, Instashare, and Yelp! review, the foodie is an unique eater how descending on the area. At HIDE, we welcome food lovers of all kinds and we believe that at heart, we are all foodies. Let’s take a deeper look at why the Deep Ellum area is a food mecca that holds the key to any foodies’ heart and how HIDE fits perfectly into this foodie culture.
Eateries in Deep Ellum Throughout the Past
Even though Deep Ellum is known for its extremely popular bar scene and local music, it is also renowned for having some famous restaurant landmarks. The 1920s through the 1950s gave the thriving neighborhood the opportunity create a number of successful cafes. Mixed in with the musical boom and hopping night clubs were these original cafes and restaurants. Although time has erased the names of many of these original food establishments that fed amongst others the array of visiting musicians, history does repeats itself, and over time, a new breed of restaurant has been written into the Deep Ellum history books.
It is important to note that regardless of the period of time in Deep Ellum’s history, there is a sense of community that draws restaurant owners, bars, and crowds as if the neighborhood itself wields a magnetic force. So, the present just like the past, is a good time to explore the tastes that make Deep Ellum restaurants so appealing and unique.
