Dallas: looking for a restaurant for party of 10-15

I think Penne Pomodoro (Lakewood location) fits the bill of what you're looking for. If you like Matt's, I think you'll equally enjoy Mattito's. I've never been to Bangkok House, but Royal Thai on Greenville is something to consider. La Calle Doce is a tasty Lakewood option. Cafe Izmir or Gloria's on Greenville could be fun, too.

Birthday lunch in Dallas

Rise No. 1 is the perfect place for you young ladies to celebrate this momentous occasion! Aurora and Seventeen Seventeen would be great options, too. I think there are more options in Dallas, but Loft 610, Cadot, or Jasper's are places consider in Plano.

Vietnamese Cajun

There are actually a number of them in the metroplex. The two I most frequent are The Boiling Crab and Cajun Corner. I believe these two originated in CA.

good, fun, cheap in Addison for a gaggle of teenagers?

Granted you can get burgers anywhere, but Jake's could be an option.

Buffalo Wild Wings runs a special on Tuesdays. I think it's $0.45 wings. They might enjoy this place, too.

[DFW] Best French Fries in the Metroplex [DFW]

The neighborhood can be a little questionable, but my favorite fries are at The Boiling Crab. They offer cajun fries and sweet potato fries, which are both really tasty.

Best coffee shop in the Carrollton/Dallas area - even if I have to drive 30 min.

You would love Crooked Tree. It's housed in a house and is filled with couches and comfy seating--lots of character. They have great chai lattes to boot!

The Pearl Cup is one of my favorite coffeehouses. They also offer french presses. Drip is good, and probably the most sleek and modern looking coffeehouse I've been to.

Restaurant for guy's night out?

Al Biernat's and Nick and Sam's are solid choices. Out of the two, Nick and Sam's is the better option for Guys' Night Out.

I would pass on Trece and Oceanaire. The food at both places is very mediocre. Side note: If you want to try Trece, go on Customer Appreciation Monday--free two course meal. Mediocre food becomes good when its free. Their sister restaurant, Villa-O, runs the same special.

Ocean Prime is the new kid on the block for the see and be seen crowd. The food is pretty decent, but there is something to be said about the bar scene--it is fun and lively. Another great option.

Dragonfly and Charlie Palmer are worthy mentions as well. You can come for dinner and stay for the night life. I prefer Dragonfly over Charlie Palmer.
