Childrens book about men and boys herding cattle that end up in Texas in the 19th century needs a restaurant to celebrate the author. Theme appropriate place somewhat near convention center or Hyatt regency would be best. what say you Dallas hounds?

        YO Ranch in the West End is the first western atmosphere type place that comes to mind...

          I thought of that as well, but I have no idea if it's any good any more.

          You might want to look at Dakota's on Akard. It's not a theme place, but they have great steaks and it's a pretty place.

          Frankly, if your budget allows I would go to Fearing's at the Ritz. The Rattlesnake Bar is pretty Texan and Dean is one of the pioneers of Southwest cuisine (granted, both he and Stephen Pyles have moved a bit away from that, but you still see hints). The other suggestion is the aforementioned Stephen Pyles.

          Not really close to the Hyatt, but the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine has a couple of restaurants that may fit the bill.
