My friend and I will be coming to town for a conference in early Feb. We'd like to go out to a couple of good restaurants while we are in town, perhaps one casual and one nicer. If there is some good (but not wild - we are kind of past that stage of life!)nightlife, we'd love that recommendation too. We are staying at the Dolphin and will have no children with us -- kid-friendly is not a requirement. We are from Dallas, so have many chains here already. If there is something good that is not a chain, that would be our first pick. We haven't yet decided whether to rent a car. Will we need/want one? We haven't figured out what to do with the week-end before the conference starts so would love any suggestions on that too. Are there any inexpensive breakfast places near our hotel?
Thanks for your help, chowhounds!
