One of my good friends recently got married and his registry was already bought out. He's been in Dallas for a few years and undoubtedly already been to most of the top places in town for work dinners (high roller business guy). However, his wife is new to Dallas, so may not have hit too many.
Another friend and I will likely go in on this together so that we can make it more of a blowout occasion. So, I'm looking for a place that is between $300-400 for dinner for two, and would be a great experience.
I can't give a ton of guidance on cuisine, except to say that the couple are in their mid-30s and adventurous as far as eating goes. New and hip would be preferred over old and stuffy... something like a "welcome to Dallas" experience for someone new to town to knock their socks off.
I had looked at the Dallas observer and some other reviews, and was thinking that Local, Lola, Aurora, or Bijoux may fit the bill...but I need a local to weigh in on some good ideas.
