Visiting from Dallas, got some questions!

air | May 17, 2011 07:03 AM


I'm coming into town this upcoming weekend and I've found a lot of good ideas for food, but I'd love to hear some additional input from locals on a few particular things:

Tsukushinbo's ramen on friday sounds interesting. Good ramen definitely can't be found in Dallas, so would coming here for lunch on friday be a good use of my time? I am also considering Kaname Izakaya and Fu Lin.

I am also looking at doing a lunch at Paseo (which I am ashamed to admit I missed last time around). When would be a good time to get in line?

I saw that Din Tai Fung opened a location up there and I could use some good XLB too. Are there any other good contenders apart from them that I should be considering?

I'm interested in trying out three cocktail bars in a single night crawl which would likely be on friday. I am eyeballing Zig Zag Cafe, Tavern Law (especially if I can pull off getting upstairs - how does this work?), and Knee High Stocking Company.

So, is it feasible to attempt stopping through all three of these in one night. or should I trim this downt to two due to potential brutal waits? I will probably be alone for the first stop, but may meet up with another friend along the way. I plan to start at happy hour, do dinner at the second stop, and then a post-dinner drink at the third. I'd really like to hear some ideas on what order I should hit these bars. I'll be on foot and traveling by bus/cab, so I'd also appreciate insight on transportation around the area! Lastly, are there any particular drinks that are unique to each of these bars (should probably note I'm a fan of gin and whisky, really like Aviations and Manhattans/Old Fashioned)? Thanks!
