El Carlos Elegante

Duro Hospitality has a way with Dallas restaurants.

“Earlier this year, we raved over the maximalist beauty of Cafe Duro on Greenville Ave,” writes Eater Dallas. “Now, our heads are turned by El Carlos Elegante, the group’s new restaurant in the Design District next to The Charles, another of its properties.”

“The menu doesn’t strictly stick to Mexico. The Duro Group calls El Carlos Elegante’s food more Mexican-inspired, mirroring Sister’s Mediterranean-inspired approach to cooking. It features Argentinian-style meats and fish, house-made tortillas, mesa, moles — hummus and ossobuco dishes also make the menu, blurring the culinary lines.”

The gorgeous interiors are the work of Corbin and Ross See of See Design.

“We wanted it to feel multigenerational and cozy,” said Corbin See. “The space has a residential feel, and we aimed for the pieces to feel collected and added over time.”

Culture Map Dallas reports on a menu that includes:

  • Surf & Turf One-Hitter: A5 Wagyu, Ostera Caviar, Crispy Shell
  • Beef Aguachile: Charred Onion, Soy, Fresno
  • Mole Negro Masa: Ricotta Tamale

Okay, okay … we’re sold!
