Visiting DFW... Need some Recs.

I'm kinda new to this, but figured having read a lot about the food and what's supposedly good, I'd ask the folks on here to comment on where I was thinking of going.

Will be in town (mainly for work) for a week (M-F) and looking to eat out the whole time. Money's not really an issue (but no crazy expensive places).

I've already been to Nana, Abacus, Bob's, Nobu, Reata, and places like that and am not looking for French or Sushi dishes. I'm probably more into upscale Mexican and Southwestern cuisine and something a bit different.

From what I remember of the area (and what I've been told), I'm looking at the following places which I've not been to in Dallas.

Catalina Room
Luna De Noche
Stephen Pyles
Lanny's (in FW)
Hector's on Henderson
Fireside Pizza

I know, it's a mixed bag and I'll have to split it between lunch and dinner, but are there any not worth going to (where for example there have been chef/ owner changes and standards have slipped).

I know most these are sort of high end, but I'm not opposed to anything really. It's just the big ones, I want to "fix" and work everything else around them.

Looking forward to what ya'll have to say about my shortlist.
