1. Bistro Babu-san 102 Prairie Rd, Fairview, TX 75069 (Dallas)

Babu's a fast-casual concept from two resto vets (Bengal Coast/Zinsky's, Genghis Grill) that mashes up fare from India, Thailand, Japan, China, Korea, and Vietnam into sub-$10 dine-in/takeout dishes; the warmly hued space melds the modern (sleek triangular bar, interactive flat-screen menus) with the antiquated (giant potted reeds, elephant statues) around an open kitchen and a transparent wall displaying colorful spices sandwiched in acrylic, which still tastes terrible even with the spices.
