    City Tavern

    1402 Main St, Dallas, TX 75202

    Definitely a good place to go for drinks (and food) when you're downtown, either with friends or when you're out to make new ones. The seating area spills out into the street, and it's usually a hotspot of activity. Bring some friends!

    Nasher Sculpture Center

    2001 Flora St, Dallas, TX 75201
    9 reviews

    The Nashers of Dallas are such devout arts patrons that not only have they installed a number of art pieces from their personal collection at NorthPark Center, they built an entire museum in the Arts District to house both works from their collection and feature traveling exhibits. The grounds and even the building itself are a work of art as ...

    Saint Ann Restaurant and Bar

    2501 North Harwood Street, Dallas, TX

    Arguably the best outdoor patio in Dallas. I love going to Saint Ann for happy hours or Sunday brunch. The art museum on the second floor is a nice touch, too.

    Rosemont, a modern diner located in the Deep Ellum nightlife district just east of downtown, has a breakfast and lunch menu as straightforward as its clean and simple interior. Chef Tracy Miller’s American fare features waffles, chicken salad sandwiches, and powdered doughnuts.

    The Cedars Social

    1326 South Lamar Street, Dallas, TX
    2 reviews

    Super-cool bar located just south of Downtown that is really worth the wait on the weekends. Better yet, make a reservation. The farm-to-table menu changes regularly and the drinks are prepared by top-notch mixologists. These guys care about their craft. The place has great ambiance (reminds me of a sweet basement apartment) and a firepit on the back patio.

    Taco Borracho

    300 N Akard
    1 review

    I just finished a fish taco, and it was super cheap and extremely tasty. The kitchen is out in the open, so you can make eye contact with the person cooking your food. I'm positive I'll be going back...often.

    Mi Cocina

    11661 Preston Rd, Dallas, TX 75230
    4 reviews

    #BeStuffed #BeTipsy It would be foolish to visit Dallas without sampling the food at this Tex-Mex institution and sampling their frozen margaritas. You probably were unaware that the frozen margarita was in fact born in this very city!

    Best breakfast in Uptown. Could be walkable from the house. Traditional breakfast menu. Gets busy, and doesn't take reservations. They serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Focus on breakfast. Great patio.

    Eatzi's Market & Bakery

    3403 Oak Lawn Ave, Dallas, TX 75219

    I love the eclectic-ness and varied selections of this joint! Reminiscent of Central Market's deli area. And I do like the fact that my ADD goes haywire in here! :)

    Pappasito's Cantina

    10433 Lombardy Ln
    4 reviews

    There are better places than Dallas to get your Tex Mex on, San Antonio in my opinion has better. But they do a good enough job and give you enough options to keep things interesting. For a chain Pappasito's is doing some great things. The Houston based franchise works hard to create a better than average Tex Mex experience. Using ...

    Every city has one. Ours is just ok.... Its a quick car ride, or 1 mile walk from house.

    In the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff, a neighborhood southwest of downtown recently gentrified by artists, designers, boutique owners, and restaurateurs, Oddfellows riffs on Mexican, Italian, and American classics. Dishes range from gingerbread pancakes to lamb and mint sausage Bolognese.

    614 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208
    5 reviews

    Another great restaurant in the Bishop Arts area. Here you will find great, fresh and mainly local fare here. If the weather is nice you'll want to enjoy a seat on the patio. In keeping with the green theme, this building was recycled from a gas station into a hip restaurant.

    Twisted Root Burger Company

    2615 Commerce St, Dallas, TX 75226
    5 reviews

    The burgers here are very good. Mine was a bit overcooked, well to medium well versus medium, but still packed quite a bit of flavor. They also brew their own root beer, which was fantastic!

    Key Lime Pie! It's the biggest serving of dessert I've ever seen. (And it's good.) Their servings in general are sizeable, and it probably won't help your svelte figure to finish off a plate, but a starving gal (i.e. me, after being on a plane all day) can definitely polish off their briskett - and yes, it's good. It saddens ...

    Mexican restaurant in West Village. Trolley ride, or short drive, or cab. Try the frozen mambo taxi, the mambo taxi is Dallas Institution. Great patio, great people watching, super trendy. Saturday and Sunday lunch is a total scene. Dinner Wed-Sun night is also a scene. Must go to west village while you're in town!
