Old-School Dallas restaurant changes name, implements no-tipping policy


Much like Oprah, Cher and Beyonce, Gorji is a first-name celeb. Gorji has a cookbook. Gorji also has a line of gourmet sauces and a restaurant. Now, Gorji’s tying it all together by renaming his Canary by Gorji restaurant to … Gorji (maybe because too many of us wondered WTH does a canary have to do with eating). So out with Canary, in with Gorji. New name, new look, new menu, too.

Gorji says his seven-table restaurant is more intimate now, thanks to a recent renovation. He’s initiated a no-tipping policy, which a release says “reduces high pressure sales tactics and equalizes pay between front and back of house, providing a livable, steady income for staff. ” And that Gorji  is “dedicated to safety and health” and “has received a score of 100 on Health Inspections two years in a row.” (I’m guessing they’re referring to the restaurant and not the man here).

I’ve never visited Gorji the restaurant nor have I ever met Gorji the chef, author and restaurateur, but I probably should. Sounds like some positive things are happening for both Gorjis.

5100 Belt Line Rd., Dallas, 972-503-7080.
