  1. Well coming from NY, if you want something "Texas-y" that is downtown or close by....Stephen Pyles' probably fits best, although it's not super fancy/formal, if that's more what you're looking for. Fearing's is another alternative although it's more uptown and I haven't been there quite yet so I can't make a definite rec...

    1. Stephan Pyles: southwestern food, great menu, fun place, trendy.

      Lola: More refined, great but more limted and sophisticated menu.

      Nobu: great asian fusion, fantastic desserts, fun, trendy, sometimes loud.

      French Room: very sophisticted, fine dining, some of the best food in town.

      Abacus: varied menu (sushi to southwestern to asian to steaks), great bread, fun.

      Palmer's: trendy but sophisticated

      Bijoux: sophisticated french not as formal as french room but just as good, perhaps better.

      These are all in, or 10 minutes by cab from, downtown. You cant go wrong at any of these places.

      1. I would add Fearing's in the Ritz Carlton. It's Dean Fearing's (Mansion on Turtle Creek Fame) new place. It would give you a real look at Southwestern Fusion Cusine. I would pick it over Stephan Pyles in a heartbeat. John Mariani picked it as America's best new restaurant. It ain't cheap.

          1. Stephen Pyles, for sure....
