Dallas chef Avner Samuel sets opening date for his Nosh Bistro redux

Longtime Dallas chef Avner Samuel says he plans to open a reincarnation of his well-regarded Nosh Bistro for dinner service beginning August 13. 

Nosh, you will recall, occupied a choice spot in the Shops of Highland Park in the space that is now Tulum.

During its brief life, Nosh offered some of the best cooking in town. Chef Jon Stevens worked the range and Samuel primarily ran the dining room.

Stevens, of course now owns and operates two Dallas restaurants of his own, Foxyco and Stock & Barrel, while Samuel returned to town after a prolonged absence from the dining scene. Now he’s bringing new life to the former Dish restaurant space at Hillcrest and Northwest Highway. His big financial backer? The same lead investor behind the Dallas Statler Hotel.

Samuel hasn’t revealed Nosh’s complete menu yet, but snippets he’s posted to social media show him and another notable culinary veteran, chef Lori Finkelman, refining dishes such as beet- cured salmon in Nosh’s gleaming, new, stainless steel kitchen.

On the sweet side of the kitchen, Samuel has tapped pastry wiz Jill Bates to help, so that’s an extra bonus. (Bates recently split from a long run at Fearing’s.)
