The Mansion Restaurant
The Mansion is a Dallas icon, and dining there is like sharing a meal with a grande dame. The menu changes with the seasons, but tortilla soup is a year-round staple. The clubby bar is a treat of its own, with wine chats, live music on weekends, and the unshakable feeling that you might meet some rich someone who could sweep you off your feet (and take you upstairs to one of the fancy-pants rooms).
