Can someone suggest a good restaurant in Dallas for dinner?

Asked by shilolo (17998points) May 26th, 2010

Traveling for business to Dallas and would like a recommendation for a nice (can be fancy) restaurant that won’t break the bank. I’m not on a particular budget, but I need to submit receipts, so nothing too expensive.

Whatever restaurant you decide on, if you like Hefeweizen, make sure you ask for Live Oak Hefe. If it is a good restaurant they should have it, and you will be quite pleased. I dare say.

It is in Fort Worth but great. Joe T Garcia’s Sit outside by the pool and enjoy a margarita. It’s near the stockyards.

A friend of ours owns Salum you can check the menu I think on the website. Food is very good, in a very nice area north of downtown (I think it is called Highland Park area). If you think you would like to go I will give you my name and you can drop it. He is a very old friend of my husband’s, we were there just a few months ago.

Oh, and for dessert the bread pudding is not to be believed if you like that sort of thing.

I lived in Dallas for 4 years. The absolute best local chef is named Steven Pyles, and I believe he has a new restaurant under his name. Ask the concierge at whatever hotel you’re staying at or google it.

Update: We asked the people we were meeting with the day before for a recommendation, and one of them also said Stephan Pyles, so we went there. It was a fantastic experience. The next day while touring the city, we also ate some BBQ at Dickie’s. It was also a delicious meal. Thanks for all the suggestions.
