Chef's tasting menu help

Looking for suggestions for a tasting menu on Friday next month. Have done Abacus, Stephan Pyles in the past (2 years ago) and wouldn't mind repeating either but was wondering if something else on the same caliber has come up in the interim.

    Fuego at Stephen pyles is really good, particularly for Dallas, or the tasting at the Mansion at Turtle Creek are your best options in my opinion. Can't go wrong with either

      Nothing but right for the tasting menu at Salum.

        couldn't find the tasting menu on the website. Do you have to request it when making the reservation?
        I heard it's really affordable

          I'd call them to inquire.

            I requested a tasting menu on my Open Table reservation. We spent about $130 for 2. It was a delight.

          Nana at the Hilton Anatole is also worth the consideration. That and Abacus have been my favorite so far (when you count service, inventiveness, uniqueness, etc).

              Was curious about Salum, but would like to get an idea on cost before reserving. Also, saw on SP website that
              Fuego will be available for two seatings at 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. on the following dates:
              •September 23rd & 24th
              •September 30th
              •October 1st
              •October 7th & 8th
              •October 21st & 22nd
              Unfortunately, we'll be traveling mid November on a Friday (so Abacus tasting is out also). Do they do another chefs tasting, or is Fuego it?
              We enjoyed Nana (can't beat the view) as well but felt culinary experience wasn't quite on same level of the others.

                There is a thread here somewhere that claim Salum tasting menu is about $120 for 2 person, which if it's true, then it's a steal

                  I'm the person who wrote about the $130 tasting for 2 at Salum. They didn't have one published, nor were they offering it. I made a special request on my Open Table reservation, and they offered it to us when we were seated. We had no idea what they were going to bring us or charge us. We had a really nice sampling of the entire menu, and this remains one of my very favorite meals I've had in Dallas. Give them a call and see what they say.

                    Called SP and they have extended Fuego into November- absolutely fabulous experience, quite unlike their regular tasting menu. Chef Stephen was very personable, explaing the intricacies of every course. Seating is for four only, well worth the price (125), wine pours (75)were a bit on the over-generous side, cab or DD might be a good idea especially if you had cocktail before dinner. Would definately reccomend this as best tasting menu we've had in Texas (hope Andrew Weisman forgives me)!

                  I'm very fond of the tasting menu with wine matches at Bijoux. It's classical French technique (very well done, incidentally) with fresh seasonal American ingredients. The restaurant is not overly formal, but quiet and lovely. Service is impeccable.
