After spending more than two years in Israel, Chef Avner Samuel returns to the Dallas culinary scene with his evolved restaurant concept. Nosh Bistro is set to open at Hillcrest and Northwest Highway in the late summer.

Nosh Bistro will open for lunch and dinner with rotating specials and a diverse menu that offers a unique chance to experience a fusion of Mediterranean, American and Asian cuisines.

A few noteworthy dishes include the Wagyu Kobe burger, seared diver scallops and a black Maine lobster ravioli.

Nosh Bistro’s brunch every Sunday will reinvent classic dishes, such as eggs Benedict with beef tenderloin, French thin crepes and steak and eggs.

The future is bright for Samuel, renowned for his award-winning restaurants Aurora and Nosh, as well as his four-and a half-year occupation as executive chef at The Mansion on Turtle Creek. Already spotlighted in major publications including The New York Times and Time Magazine, Samuel looks forward to reinstating himself and growing his presence in the Dallas food scene. 

“Going back to Israel and immersing myself in the environment where I was first introduced to the art of cooking brought an edge back into the way I look at food and the guest experience I aim to create at Nosh Bistro,” Chef Avner Samuel says. “Some of my most fond memories involve time spent in the kitchen and seated around the dinner table, and I hope to gift that to everyone that comes into the restaurant.”

Located at 8611 Hillcrest Road, Nosh Bistro’s mid-century modern architecture will foster an inviting atmosphere through its 12-seat chef’s table, an aesthetic patio, bar-top dining that offers a chef’s tasting menu overlooking the display kitchen and cooking classes for adults and children on Saturdays.
