Nice, celebration dinner in Dallas???

Jump to last reply

Next month, I will be traveling to Dallas with my wife when she takes her medical boards exams. This is a rather stressful test for her and she has been working towards it for over a year now, so I would like to take her out to a nice dinner after she is done with it.

It does not need to be super-luxury but I would obviously want it to be nice. We do not like Italian, but enjoy seafood, Mexican, Oriental, or trying local cuisine. We also like places like The Melting Pot, but would prefer not to go to a chain while traveling. Something fun or out of the ordinary could be a good treat, too.

If it helps, I saw Reata in Fort Worth mentioned in another thread and it looked like the exact type of place I was looking for. Seemed pretty nice with some cool decor and a nice menu with seafood and local dishes. Since we are staying at the Warwick Melrose in Dallas, however, it seemed like a 45 minute drive to Reata in Fort Worth and I assume I can find a place just as appealing in Dallas.

I welcome any and all suggestions... and I thank you in advance for all of them!
