I will be in Dallas towards the end of the month for 4 days for a conference. We will be staying at the Fairmont Hotel (1717 North Akard St) and the conference will be there as well.
A number of my colleagues and I are always in search for some good eats. We are open to all types of cuisine, but coming from DC we would all appreciate something that particularly has a Texas taste to it. Walking distance would be great, although we would also be willing to take a short cab ride if need be.
Lunch and dinner spots is probably what we need. Affordable in price---nothing too expensive, cheap eats and moderately priced are all good. Also if there is a fun bar nearby, please let me know.
