Fine Continental Fare in Dallas' Most Luxe Restaurant
With a stunning interior tucked into downtown's Adolphus Hotel, this venerable crown jewel of Dallas dining towers above so many restaurants in reputation and quality. From starters like the crispy pork belly with white chocolate polenta (!!!) and the much-revered butter-poached lobster, to stellar mains like Colorado lamb chops and sumptuous diver scallops, each bite is a journey. The gilded dining room with majestically painted, soaring ceilings adds to the luxury that arrives on the plate. The French Room is famed for its souffles, so definitely leave room for varieties like chocolate, white chocolate or Grand Marnier. And be prepared to dine in fine European fashion, with attentive service, a super-knowledgeable sommelier ready to suggest sublime wine pairings, and never-rushed food delivery. The restaurant takes care to maintain that air of finery, too: Note that The French Room has a strict dress code: Jackets are required for gents, and jeans are prohibited for all. So put on your Sunday best and indulge in one of the most luxurious dining experiences in all of Big D.
