HELP Dallas recommendations needed!

n

I will be in downtown Dallas for 3 days and will NOT have a car. Although I have been to Europe over 100 times, this will be my first to Dallas and would like to try Tex Mex or something Texan (not a steakhouse) even tho I do not eat meat.

I am looking for suggestions of restaurants whose chefs use high quality fresh local ingredients somewhat creatively and preferably with some authentic local character.

Any help will be appreciated!

    Downtown Dallas:
    Stephan Pyles Restaurant or his sister restaurant, Stampede 66. Both Texas themed but Stampede 66 more so.

    Mexican and Tex-Mex downtown:
    Meso Maya. Mexican with Tex-Mex.

    El Fenix. Strictly Tex-Mex.
