Abacus, a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant from chef Kent Rathbun, is located in the Uptown neighborhood of Dallas. This area has its fair share of hip dining destinations that each go by one exotic word — think Taverna or Sangria, or for that matter, Abacus — all within a few hundred feet of each other. But Abacus stands out from its oh-so-cool neighbors, and other fine Dallas dining destinations, with its its induction into the Nation’s Restaurant News’s Fine Dining Hall of Fame and its imaginative menu featuring Pacific Rim by way of Texas cuisine. The man behind it all, chef Rathbun, is a local celebrity who can boast of beating Bobby Flay on the Food Network’s Iron Chef America.
