Haven't been to Dallas in years and have no idea where to begin to plan our food itinerary. Will be there next week for a conference and bringing along two teenage boys. Last time I was in Dallas Del Frisco's was the big place to go and get a steak, but I haven't seen it mentioned lately. Is it still good? What about the restaurant at the Mansion at Turtle Creek?
I have those on my list, but am wondering if are other places that have surpassed them over the years.
We are staying in downtown at the Hyatt Regency and will have a car.
For lunch, we only have limited time, so we need some places that are close by. I think one day we will try Pecan Lodge ( and probably two days since everyone love BBQ). Any other suggestions for good BBQ, tex-mex, or burgers for lunch in downtown area?
Dinner is up in the air. As I mentioned, we had planned on Del Frisco's and the Mansion, but I am not certain about these. Someone else mentioned the restaurant at the Ritz-Carlton?
We'd like a nice (aka fancy) dinner one night and the others don't necessarily have to be so. Also, are there any gourmet food stores downtown where I can get some take-out and/or snacks?
Thanks so much for any help you can offer! :0)
