Possibilities for Valentine's Meal (Triangle, NC)

You should check out Jujube..great food and great atmosphere. Not sure if they are serving the full menu, but worth a look.

Arriving in Dallas this Friday for business and this is our first time visiting....

For food and atmosphere you can't beat Stephan Pyles or Fearing's. Both have as good of food as you will find in Dallas...Fearing's probably has the best atmosphere of the two, but it has a horrible parking situation as it is located inside the Ritz Carlton and their valet system is terrible. Both restaurants food style is New American with a Southwestern flair.

Abacus is another restaurant with the same quality food as the restaurants above, but lacks a little in the atmosphere department.

For steak, Dallas has some good options. Nick and Sam's is my favorite for food and atmosphere, followed by Bob's Steak and Chop, Pappas Bros. Steakhouse and Al Bernait's.

If you can provide more detail as to type of food, I can give you more suggestions...but what I have given you represents my favorite restaurants in Dallas.

Dessert and/or drinks post theatre?

Are there any good restaurants to stop in for a late dessert and a couple of drinks after going to the theatre? I should mention this will be on January 1st...which I assume will mean a lot of places will be closed?
