Celebrated Michelin-starred restaurant Carbone has opened its doors in the heart of the Design District of Dallas. Known for its delectable pasta and Italian dishes, the restaurant officially opened its doors on March 31. Located next door, its sister restaurant Carbone Vino opened on April 7.
All of their classic dishes are on the menu, like: spicy rigatoni in vodka sauce, veal chop parmesan, octopus pizzaiolo, a charcoal-grilled porterhouse steak for two, and linguini vongole.

“Carbone is known for serving the best versions of dishes that everyone knows and loves with unforgettable energy, style, and professionalism. For this amazing city, we not only want to meet these expectations. We plan to exceed them,” says co-founder Mario Carbone.
The space combines the grandeur of an Italian palace with midcentury vibes and a serious attention to opulence and luxury, all of which was designed by acclaimed designer Ken Fulk. A huge amenity includes an exclusive intimate lounge, the “private grotto”, that was designed especially for the Dallas location.
“Crafted with an old world elegance, it’s utterly glamorous and filled with big doses of high style. Soon to be the spot to see and be seen, it’s the perfect match for a city that’s known for grand gestures,” says Fulk.
Carbone’s first location opened in New York City in 2012. In just ten years, the restaurant has garnered praise for its pastas and exclusive dining experience and has since expanded to include locations in Hong Kong, Las Vegas, Miami and now Dallas.
The opening of Carbone also marks the second luxury location opened by Major Food Group (MFG) in Dallas. MFG was founded by Mario Carbone, Jeff Zalaznick and Rich Torrisi, and the group now operates 30 properties, including luxury clubs, bars, hotels and restaurants, around the world. Recently in Dallas, the group opened New York-favorite deli Sadelle’s on Wednesday, March 16 in Highland Park Village.
