Hey there. I've only been in Dallas for a day, but my past three meals have been at Red Lobster, IHOP and the Olive Garden. Anyone have any suggestions for non-chain restaurants in north Dallas, heading towards Plano? I'd be eternally grateful ...

    I love Cadot at Preston Road and Frankford and, Lavendou a little further North on Preston Road. Both are French provincial cooking.

      Thanks! I actually found Lavendou through a Google search -- maybe we'll try it tonight (if my boyfriend and I can convince his family to branch out a little...) Appreciate the help!

      If you are looking for ethnic food Afghan Grill on Preston just north of Campbell is great. I love their Kadu Buranee (a curried pumpkin dish) and the Aush (a heart vegetable soup). They have a pretty diverse menu so you can choose what you like.

      Further up north into Plano on Preston at Spring Creek is Sea Breeze an excellent seafood restaurant. I have never had a bad meal there. Prices are reasonable and the fish is fresh and seasonal.

      For a pretty reasonably priced sushi restaurant you can head to Sushi Robata on Frankford and the Dallas North Tollway.

      I have heard good things about India West in Addison. I have not been there personally but the digs look nicer than most Indian eateries.

      Let us know if you would like some into Richardson (just east it sounds from where you are). Richardson has some great Chinese, Indian and Persian/Lebanese

        Have you also tried Giovanni's? A Persian friend recently recommended it (but stay away from the Italian), it's near Preston/Frankford.

        This is all great info, thanks so much! My last two meals were homecooked and delicious -- but I'll be back soon and look forward to trying all of these suggestions. Thanks for coming through, fellow Chowhounds!
