Coming back for the first time since 1970. (Yeah, it's been a while.) All my restaurant knowledge has long since passed my conscious memory, though I do have vague recollection of some dive bar on the second story of a building in Ft. Worth called "The Cellar" -- WTF?!?!?!? -- that featured waitresses walking back and forth in front of the band in leotards. Oooohhhh, the horror . . . .
OK, be that as it may, I've flying in with a handful of other California chowhounds for a law conference.
How's this list for three nights of dinner suggestions?
-- Lonesome Dove Bistro, Ft. Worth.
-- Abacus, Dallas
-- Stephan Pyles, Dallas
Any other ideas?
Also, is there anyplace in North Dallas to get a decent espresso? I'll be at the Omni West off the LBJ freeway, and Cafe Gachet is some 13 miles away. Anything closer, or do I have to haul an espresso machine in my luggage?
