About to make my 1st of many visits to the DFW/Denton area and need some help

onrushpam | Feb 28, 201103:03 PM     13

My twin sister just moved to Denton and I'm going to visit her in a couple of weeks.
I've been reading lots of the previous posts and have a list of places to try... Babe's, Amici's, the Thai place in Denton and others. I've been cutting/pasting into a list. But, I need a little more specific help...

My sis just bought a new house. She sold most everything before moving, so we'll be doing lots of SHOPPING all over the suburbs North of DFW... Plano/Carrollton/Lewisville/etc... We need more ideas of good places for both lunch and dinner in those areas, as well as close to Denton. On this trip, I'm not really looking for upscale, though we might do that one night. We are both adventuresome eaters, both omnivores, but tend to like more fish/veg and not so much heavy meat. I really wanted to try Loft 610, but see it has closed and maybe reopened as something else?

I 'll be arriving at Love Field 7 pm on a Saturday night. We need a good place to stop for dinner on the way back to Denton. My 20-something musician nephew will be with us that night. So, we'd like something casual, but good food, relaxed/fun, not stuffy.

Ideas for us??? Bring it on! I'll be visiting the area a lot in the coming months/years.

I promise to post a recap after my trip. :-)
