I am a new-to-Dallas line cook at a small restaurant downtown. Being from Chicago, I'm used to hitting up a joint at quitting time to get some good (but simple) food, a cold drink, and some conversation with like-minded souls. Unfortunately, my co-workers all have kids or other addictions that they would rather tend to after work.
Does anyone know of a good "industry" spot? Preferably one that stays open (and serving food) late.
