Farm-fresh produce at the Dallas farmers market.

When my friend and Barefoot Eatery co-founder Jon Bourne told me about his real-food restaurant concept coming to Dallas, I could not have been more thrilled!

Barefoot Eatery, a real-food, fast casual restaurant, plans to open its doors near University Park in 2014. Its founders developed the idea with the goal to provide busy professionals, families and health-conscious individuals with nutrient-dense, real food options that are locally sourced, organic and pasture-raised.

The menu will have different offerings each season. Plus, if you follow a vegetarian, vegan, or Paleo diet, Barefoot will have plenty of options to choose from. They use traditional food preparation techniques, such as soaking and sprouting, to maximize nutrient availability (so you get the most out of your meal), and everything on the menu is made from scratch.

A few of Barefoot’s planned offerings include:

  • Grass-fed beef burgers with or without sprouted buns
  • All-beef hot dogs
  • Beef stew made from bone broth
  • Quiche made with free range, organic eggs
  • Salads with raw milk cheese

To support its opening, Barefoot Eatery launched a crowdsourcing campaign via Kickstarter. I encourage all of you to check out Barefoot’s video and consider donating to help make this restaurant a reality! We need more nutritious real-food options here in Dallas 🙂
