Dallas Late-night Dining
It seems none of the local publications list a late-night dining category (that I can find), so I thought I would pose the question here.
I enjoy going to dinner after attending various performances and events instead of rushing around to dine beforehand, but Dallas seems to be very short on late-night dining venues. Most establishments with late hours are usually extremely casual such as Snookies and Buzzbrews (and I like both of them), but are there any places that are a little more upscale to dine? Rise No.1 lists Friday and Saturday hours until midnight, so I'm looking forward to trying them out when the early buzz dies down a bit (and I live very close to Inwood Village). Anybody have favorites with serving hours in the 10 PM to midnight (or later) timeframe? Thanks!
Based on the post, I think Cafe Brazil might be the kind of place BluffViewChound is trying to avoid.
Nandina on Lowest Greenville is decent enough Thai Fusion/Sushi and it's open late, late, late.
Avanti on McKinney Avenue is open quite late Thursday - Saturday and it's quite good.
Sambuca Uptown is open quite late, but I don't know if they do a full menu.
Kenny's Wood Fired Grill
It's a bit north (Beltline and the Tollway). However, the food is really good and it's open until 1:30am on the weekends).
For sushi, Teppo is open until 11 and Tei Tei is open until 11 as well. However, I think they usually stay open later on the weekends because I went to Teppo on a Saturday at 10.30 several weeks ago and it was still pretty crowded when we left an hour later.
The Grape is also open until 11.
I don't know the hours for Shinsei, but, since you live in that area, it might be worth checking out.
I believe Sushiyama is open until 2 am. If you want a late night bento fix, they are pretty good.
