My wife and I went to this beautiful and elegant restaurant over the Christmas holidays. We went on a fixed menu night so their regular items were not an option. This is a big splurge for us so we were concerned initially that we would not get the full experience because of the fixed menu options...boy were we wrong!
First you are greeted with a beautiful bar that alone would be worth the visit to this place. Remember you are in the lobby of a Ritz Carlton in downtown Dallas, so unless you dress to impress you will feel out of place! Then the staff take you to your table and you are met with staff in fairly common dress...the nosh items come to the table (awesome cracker type items and a basket of bread that includes a cornbread muffin I would walk ten miles for)
The chef himself makes an appearance and is a very charming person...you feel special from the time you walk in to the last bite of food! We are going to put this place on our "frequent" category!
You will not be disappointed by the menu! Try to get a seat by the window...the views of the restaurant inside and out seem better from there!
