Darna Market. Where Santorini meets Dallas.

When we learned about the opening of Darna Market at Legacy West in Plano, an authentic Mediterranean eatery, I knew we had to go and not just because I love Mediterranean cuisine– Darna sources premium ingredients, making key staples, like dough and hummus, in house.

While it may not have been the trip to Europe I was hoping for this summer, the experience did not disappoint.

Darna Market is well worth the trek to Plano.
