Fun/Trendy Downtown Dallas Dining Option
I'm a foodie that has traveled across the country making my first visit to Dallas next weekend. I'm staying at the Magnolia hotel downtown, and am looking for a fun/hip/fusion restaurant to have my first meal there around 4pm on a Fri afternoon (early dinner!). I also love ethnic food or a good pizza/pasta/wine place and can take that over trendy or fusion. Fuse would fit the bill perfectly but I'm going there on Sat. And I also have plans for Iron Cactus already. Any other options to check out? I will have access to a car!
I wouldn't bother with Iron Cactus either except for drinks. A popular downtown option for Tex Mex is San Miguel's (akard - near Elm. it's just by the Dart rail (akard station) so u can't miss it. If you go after midday, there's always a line.
Scene is great! they have a 3 course prix fixe for only $42 ($38 if you go early).
Also Dallas Fish Market is a good choice. Lurve the modern decor.
I'd also try Charlie Palmer's (main). they have great steaks there and yummy desserts.
