In 1999 Abacus swung open its doors and changed the Dallas dining scene. The primary goal was far simpler than sparking a food revolution. It was simply to focus on returning to polished, unpretentious service. Executive Chef Christopher Patrick’s aspiration is to reintroduce been-there-ate-that guests to the basics—fresh, local ingredients, prepared to perfection and served with style in an elegant space. If Abacus is the flagship for anything, it’s for epitomizing relaxed, fine dining.
Today, we hold true to our original concept with a reputation for signature menus, extensive wine list and custom-crafted cocktails, plus a James Beard nomination for service. At Abacus, we cultivate an environment that revolves around people and their relationship to food. It’s a culture of celebrating the uniqueness of ingredients, guests and staff—from the valets, hosts, servers and chefs alike.
Together, we transcend the average dining experience to truly remarkable. Maybe it’s a special occasion for two or private dining party. Or no particular reason at all… Whether you’ve dined with us once or one hundred times, you’re a part of the Abacus family, always welcome, always appreciated.
