York Street is a cozy, intimate, chef-owned café. You will find yourself drawn into the romantic atmosphere of York Street, a small, traditionally furnished haven-where you can have an intimate conversation and enjoy an elegant meal.

Authentic Middle Eastern cuisine is what you'll find at Cafe Izmir, voted one of the "100 Best Restaurants in Dallas." The Nazari family maintains a high standard of excellent service and exotic cuisine. Part of the Izmir experience is the anticipation of what meal you will be served. The only decision you'll need to make is the type of meat you prefer, or you can go vegetarian. You might want to make reservations, since this place can get pretty crowded. Izmir provides an upscale, casual environment that highlights the sights and aromas of the Iranian culture. Several dining tables are available for large groups, as well as a patio for outdoorsy types. The eclectic crowd is a source of entertainment in itself. If you're not adventurous enough to let the cook create your meal, take baby steps and start with Tuesday Tapas Night, when you can choose from a wide variety of Middle Eastern appetizers.
Located near the trendy Quadrangle area of Dallas, The Gingerman was one of the first microbreweries to pop up in the area.

The usually large crowd ranges in age from early twenties to late fifties. The back deck is a great place to enjoy that hard-to-find-beer while milling around with the eclectic patronage. The Gingerman is a converted neighborhood house with a homey feel to it.

You will thoroughly enjoy seeing a play in this beautiful Dallas Theater Center. It's the only one in America designed by the famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Both lifelong residents and visitors to the city appreciate the diversity of performances that range from a lighthearted Oscar Wilde or Neil Simon play to a thought-provoking historical drama. If you are planning to visit the city in late March, be sure to catch the annual Dallas Video Festival. The center is actually a complex composed of the Kalita Humphreys Theater built in 1959 and the barn like Arts District Theater (located at 2401 Flora Street), which was built in the 1980s.

The fish choices are inventive and delightful and the margaritas are potent.

Also enjoy desserts which are made from scratch.

Since 1946, Campisi's has been serving award-winning Italian food-a family-owned favorite among Dallas residents. One half of the restaurant has a sports bar/pizza cafe ambiance. The other half is dimly lit with traditional booths and tables. The oval-shaped pizzas are so popular that on some evenings the line to get in is wrapped around the front of the building. The salads, lasagnas and breads are also outstanding selections.

Italian dining in a restaurant that will make you think you are in New York. This small, narrow restaurant is a terrific choice for intimate Italian cuisine.

Favorites on the menu are lasagna, Chicken Aristocrat (a grilled chicken and fettuccine dish) and scrumptious wood-fired pizzas. Truly a food lover's delight!
