3.5 Days in Dallas, Trimming the Itenerary

uhockey | Jan 12, 2014 04:06 PM

Hello all,

Heading to Dallas in March to check another NHL arena off my bucket list - and of course, to see the local culture and restaurants. Have put together a decent sized list but wanting to trim it down to the 'best of.' As you'll see, dinners are focused at the upper end with the rest a bit of everything from BBQ to gastropub to fried chicken. If there is a place that is terribly not worth it, please say so, and if there is a glaring omission I'd be happy to hear. Keep in mind that I travel largely for food and sports, so the point is mostly to experience the best of what there is, or the most authentic. Will be in Austin for 4 days after Dallas, as well.

Sunday Brunch/Lunch: Bolsa vs. Tolbert's?

4 Dinners: Fearing’s, Stephan Pyles, Mansion at Turtle Creek, Lucia (Open to others, possibly)

3 Breakfasts: Oddfellows, Bread Winners Café & Bakery, Ellen’s Southern, Smoke (Need to eliminate one)

3 or 4 Lunches: Hattie’s, Cane Rosso, Avila's, Babe's Chicken Dinner House, Pecan Lodge, Chicken Scratch (Need to eliminate 2-3)

Meddlesome Moth - good as a pre-hockey game spot (5ish?)

Snack/Pastry Spots - Jaram’s Donuts, The Village Baking Co, Glazed Donut Works, Society Bakery, Hyponotic Donuts.
