Dinner for 40 in Dallas
I'll be attending a conference in Dallas and I need to arrange a dinner for 40-50 on a Sunday night in March. We'll be staying at the Hilton Anatole. I'd be willing to arrange for bus transportation to move this many people to an amazing place to eat (most will not have cars). Probably the easiest place to go would be to stay in the hotel and go to Nana but I do not want to overlook some of the other amazing places I've read about on this board so I need some assistance narrowing down this list. Which would be your top two places to eat from the following list that would truly show off the best of Dallas:
Mansion at Turtle Creek
York Street wouldn't be able to hangle that kind of capacity, but it's my 2nd fave in town.
For a group that large, I would lean Stephen Pyles or the Mansion.
I'd go with Stephan Pyles, although a downside of that is for a group that size they'll put you in the private room, which requires a minimum $$ and a special, more limited menu.
The Mansion and Nana are the best choices for what Dallas can offer at its best. If only York Street were a little larger, they could close for your group. Fearing's needs more time and growing up before they can truly show off Dallas' finest dining experience.
But don't forget The French Room. They should be able to accommodate a group that size. Nearly anything that comes out of the kitchen is incredible...I haven't tried it all yet! Plus Greg Cheval does a great job at pairing just the right wines for each course.
