Hi, I'm in Dallas for one night next Monday. I've been searching threads, but haven't found "the one" yet. I'll be with my mother and aunt and am looking for a semi-casual, fun place for dinner. I'm pregnant and will adore just about anything on a plate, but my family is a little picky. I was thinking about Samar, but didn't know if it would be a little too out there for my mom. Has anyone been there with a "meat & pots" companion, if so, did they like it? Thanks for any suggestions!

    I've not been to Samar yet, but nothing I've heard has led me to believe it's a meat and potatoes place. I'd suggest calling them and asking what they can do for your M&P people. Might be something on the menu, or maybe they can go off menu for you. http://www.samarrestaurant.com/Dinner... I see they have coffee-rubbed hanger steak with fenugreek mashed potatoes and roasted cauliflower. If that sounds too exotic, I'd call. And don't be afraid to play the pregnant lady card ;) I'm craving the candied rose petal sauce on the menu at Samar ... It does everyone good to venture outside their comfort zone and try something new, is what I believe :) Btw, I've found Bolla at the Stoneleigh to be on the mediocre side.

      You could try the new Del Frisco's Grille. I'd probably go for Salum, though.

        Ditto Salum.
