Austin CH Looking for Dallas Pointers
Headed up to Dallas next week and looking for something that we might have missed in the past. Something nice but not super fancy. Headed up for the All Star game and don't want to have to pack anything just for dinner (read tie). :-) We'll be downtown but would go a little out of our way. We've eaten at all of the "well known" great places but are looking for something new or something we wouldn't know about not living in Dallas.
I don't know if it's well known or not, but I'd go to Local in Deep Ellum. Excellent food, but funky enough atmosphere no tie is needed. Get your reservation now (although walk-ins can eat at the bar). Amuse on South Lamar is also worth a try. Both of these are a short ride from AAC.
La Duni on Oaklawn!!! East Wind in the Quadrangle!!! Truluck's on lower McKinney!!! Living in Dallas I don't get near downtown all that often. Anyone know if there is ANYTHING good left in the West End???
