American
Named Eater Dallas' 2017 Chef of the Year and one of Zagat's Top 17 Rising Star Chefs across America, Chef Josh Harmon serves bold, progressive dishes with Southern and Asian influences. Junction Craft + Kitchen was also awarded the title of Best Burger in Dallas and one of 2017's Best New Restaurants by the Dallas Observer.

How this restaurant came together is pretty special. Formerly known as Kitchen LTO, the 7th iteration of the permanent pop-up restaurant connected a seasoned front-of-house team with a rising star chef and his loyal kitchen crew. They worked as a well-oiled machine and the collaboration worked so well amongst all, Junction was formed to keep everyone together permanently.

    After we returned a meal for being burnt and requesting 1/2 a meal to be replaced bc the egg was overdone we were informed the restaurant would be closing permanently after today. I wish I would’ve known before reserving a table for my family Easter lunch 😑

    TERRIBLE! Unbeknownst to us, this was Junctions’s last day open. Also unbeknownst to us the chef who created inspired and delicious dishes left in late January. So our Easter brunch was a disaster. Half the menu items were unavailable (at 11:30AM), our waitress quit (we think) mid-service (“can’t smile my way out of this”), tables of customers were walking out, and what food there was tasted awful! Breakfast sausage was a salt brick, waffle was bizarre (we think goat cheese was used instead of cream cheese with the sage)... our Easter was going downhill fast. So we cut bait, paid up (they kindly only charged us for our drinks) and headed to the All Good Cafe for a proper brunch, and all was good. Today on Instagram we saw the message from Junction stating it had closed. It should have never taken Easter day reservations if they knew they couldn’t deliver.

    Today was apparently their last day. It was a terrible experience from the start. We didn’t finish the meal. The food came out cold and at that point we talked with management and left.

    WOW! What a fabulous dinner. Three of us went down to Undermain Theatre (Three Sisters is fabulous) and had dinner at Junction Craft + Kitchen. Southern and Asian--who's heard of this combination? But we had 3 fabulous main plates as well as a side of brussels sprouts that was the best any of us had ever eaten. KFC koi fried chicken with fermented collards, Crispy beef bulgogi with french curry pudding, Alabama red shrimp congee, ham and collards were all delicious. We loved every bite of our dinner.

    Amazing Service and Flair! The appetizer "dates" were divine combining sweet and savory flavors in an unlikely matching. Fried Chicken and the Burger were mouthwatering and devoured! Drinks were made by a fantastic bar master that took the time to explain the cocktails and beers. Every bite was an unexpected experience! Flavors were well developed and well paired. Plate presentation was ok for such explosive food a unique vessel could be used to match the trendy atmosphere. We will be back for more! and will be recommending this hot spot to others! Thank you!

    This place was fantastic! I'm not sure why there wasn't more foot traffic on a Saturday night, but the menu was inventive and delicious. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and helpful--she steered us to a few good choices on appetizers, meals and wine. The ambiance is really lovely, reminds me of a small restaurant in New York, not in Dallas.

    This is a very unique and special restaurant. The “tastes “ of the food are remarkable. I had the sea food and grits and my wife had their special beef burger. Both were so very unique in flavor that we both actually cleaned our plates, which is a rare occurrence. For dessert we had the chess pie. OMG, amazing. We met the chef and thanked him generously for his wonderful offerings. You will not be disappointed.

    This was my second visit and it was as good as I remembered! The menu is so interesting and the choices quite diverse. Everything from the appetizers to the deserts were exceptional. Our waiter was was very attentive, knowledgeable and PATIENT with our big group of chatty women. I am also a big fan of their specialty cocktails... I was inspired to try several during this visit and can't wait to go back for further sampling. Please go eat here... we need to keep these small, excellent restaurants in business!

    The only way to describe the dinner is "strange". They served us Kraft Singles in a starter with salami. We asked about why they would have this in the kitchen and the server told us it is actually not Kraft Singles but rather "house made American cheese" made with feta, goat cheese and other fresh cheese. Later the host told us it was in fact Kraft Singles. They serve mayo with everything. Popcorn mayo and fish sauce. Mayo on Brussels sprouts. Steer clear of the Junction.

    Absolutely wonderful experience all around. Brought my parents here for dinner last weekend and everyone loved it! My parents are relatively picky eaters so it's not a restaurant I would've normal chosen for them due to the unique items but they loved everything they tried. Our server was great, very knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions for wine, appetizers and main dishes. The food was very unique and so delicious. Would recommend to foodies looking for something a little outside the ordinary in Dallas. Will definitely be back!

    Overall food was poor Deviled eggs had clearly been prepared early in the day and stored in fridge. Gnocchi was more like a dough ball. Cheese board could have been from Trader Joe's. The steak special was over priced for the small portion and I couldn't identify what it was served on. Poor poor poor.

    My "small plate" -- the deviled egg -- was delicious, as was my appetizer -- the fried green tomatoes. Unfortunately, my entree -- the hand-made pasta -- was a tad overcooked and a tad oversalted. (And I am a salt abuser, so I don't say that often.) Nonetheless, I would return.

    My wife and I took a quick trip to Dallas and had to pick 1 restaurant in the entire city as our only meal out. Talk about a tall task! We decided on Junction Craft + Kitchen because of the attention they were starting to get for both their creative cuisine and handcrafted cocktails. All I can say is that if we lived in Dallas I don't know how we wouldn't be back here at least once a week. The staff was incredibly friendly, the drinks were all well balanced, and the food was just ridiculous. Order the Texas sheet cake with the cinnamon ice cream. Just do it.
