Dallas Dining

Picture yourself savoring some amazing barbecued food, or perhaps sipping a cool Margarita after a strenuous day of shopping. In Dallas you’ll enjoy award winning restaurants and authentic regional cuisines. It’s simply a haven for serious food lovers.

Elegant
Enjoy a night of dining in Dallas the way Texas oil barons do. Head to Dakotas Restaurant and request a table by the waterfalls. If the weather is not to your liking, the interior offers an opulent setting with rich wood paneling, marble floors and decadent chandeliers. The food is as magnificent as the stylish décor. Fresh seafood and game are prepared over slow burning fires.

If you prefer a different type of setting but just as elegant try the Bay Leaf Restaurant. Soft lights and live jazz accompany American style cuisine. Filet Mignon and grilled trout are among the favorites.

Dining in Dallas boasts critically acclaimed restaurants. The most renowned is La Duni serving Latin cuisine. Traditional ropa vieja (shredded beef) is prepared in a nouvelle cuisine style.

Barbecue
The word is out that barbecue is a must for dining in Dallas. This method of preparing food is not just about placing items on a grill. Texans use native woods for fueling the fire and cook everything slow to perfection.

Pappas Barbecue is famous for the smoked brisket and ribs. Bring your appetite because the side portions are as generous as the main courses.

Another must is Sonny Bryan’s Smokehouse. It has served mouthwatering dishes since 1910. It’s ideal for a luncheon. The smoked brisket sandwiches are delectable.

An icon among Dallas locals is Nikkee’s BBQ. They barbecue everything you can imagine including lamb.

Tip: Leave room for the traditional Southern desserts. These are all prepared home-style. Try the peach cobbler or bread pudding drizzled with whisky sauce.

Mexican and Tex-Mex
Vast immigration has resulted in an array of authentic Mexican restaurants in the Dallas area. Visitors from around the country frequent Ciudad Restaurant. Its sophisticated atmosphere and superb cuisine has made it an award winning venue of Yucatan food. Seafood and smoked cheese fondues top the list of favorites.

Other great Mexican restaurants include El Ranchito. Young calf and sweetbreads are the chef’s forte. A Mariachi band keeps the place lively until 3:00 a.m.

The Iron Cactus boasts 80 varieties of Tequila as well as superbly prepared fajitas. Vegetarians can enjoy sizzling vegetable fajitas.

And for Tex-Mex, El Fenix is said to be among the best. It’s a family owned eatery boasting mouthwatering guacamole. A waiter comes to your table and prepares it right before your eyes while you munch on nachos and quesadillas. Dining in Dallas is truly fun.

International
Dining in Dallas is also varied. You can find authentic cuisines from several parts of the world. III Forks is well-liked by business travelers. French food is served in an atmosphere of understated chic. Everything is good, from the Steak in green pepper sauce to the lobsters in champagne butter.
