Meeting friends for a 2 day "reunion" in Dallas.
Know many of the usual suspects; we are foodies who also care about atmosphere/service. Will be staying at the Anatole. Interested in lunch and dinner ideas.
Any recs for new restaurants in Oak Cliff (lunch or dinner)? Or around Oaklawn or knox/henderson? Prefer no chains. Liked Hibiscus and Parigi on earlier visit, as well as Stephen Pyle's and Hattie's in Oak Cliff. The Melrose is good for Library and for b'fast. Know there are some new ones in Oak Cliff--also maybe Deep Ellum?.
Looking for creative/interesting but also an atmosphere where we can talk. Doesn't have to be "fancy", need OK /good wine list too.
Recommendations greatly appreciated!
