dallas high end

so i'm looking for a high end meal in dallas (not ft. worth), basically the absolute best restaurant. some names i've picked up from skimming this board are Potager and York St. Price not an object, style not an object, i just want to see the finest dallas has to offer.

  1. Hands down - tasting menu w wine pairing at Fearing's. Nothing else comes even close.

    1. York Street, Rosewood Mansion, French Room, Nana, Bijoux, Stephen Pyles and Fearings.

        ok, between fearing's and rosewood mansion, what would it be?

        1. re: IrnScrabbleChf52

          York Street. Actually, between the Mansion and Fearing's, I prefer the Mansion. But I know others would disagree. Tough call.

      2. We had a fantastic meal at Fearing's during the holidays. All in my sizable party enjoyed every single course.

        1. I like Cadot and Local myself.

          Potager is in Arlington and is not high-end.

          1. You can't leave out Craft. Regardless of what you think about the Colicchio empire, the food is outstanding.

              I agree 100% with sike101 about Craft.

              1. re: bhoward

                i don't think i'm going to go to craft for a variety of reasons, including that i live in manhattan where colicchio has a pretty strong presence

                1. re: IrnScrabbleChf52

                  Understandable. In that case I would probably head to Fearing's.

            2. I think Bijoux is a real contender here. Very, very good food. Great technique in the kitchen. Very good vision in creating the dishes, etc. A bit on the classical side without a huge emphasis on local styles. But the food can stand toe to toe with Fearings' any day of the week.

              York Street would be on my short list, also. More use of local ingredients, and just as much emphasis on what is seasonal as Bijoux. Less fussy a cuisine, but still very well done.

              Among the bigger, kitchens, I think Fearings and Charlie Palmer are the best ones in terms of quality of foods, with Craft nipping at their heals.

              That would be my short list. If wine is important, Charlie Palmer has the best, and best priced wine list of this group.
