Located in a strip mall off of Forest Lane, Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant has been serving Northeast Dallas delicious cuisine for over a decade.

Mangos Hookah Bar and Night Club opened its doors in 2012 and is popular for their shisha specialties which range from the traditional to modern concoctions.

Since no drinks are served, you can bring your own alcohol. You can either dance the night away or enjoy a hookah in Mangos.
Located in the Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre, Crockett's is the perfect place to have a fun-filled dinner with the family, a nice romantic dinner, or even a solo evening out on the town. The menu is versatile and has something to satisfy everyone's tastes.

Do not forget to try the savory signature desserts.
Located at the popular lifestyle center, Village on the Green, Maximo: Cocina Mexicana & Margarita Lounge is the place to head to for Mexican cuisine, whether traditional or of the Tex-Mex variety. At this restaurant, you will get to savor dishes from all over Mexico, right from East-Central Puebla to Southeastern Yucatán.

Happy Hour is between 4p and 7p, Monday through Friday, only in the lounge.
A phrase like upscale Tex-Mex may seem like an oxymoron, but one of Dallas' more successful restaurateurs, Gene Street, produced another interesting dining concept in this upscale Tex-Mex restaurant. The decor is art deco/Southwestern with a dash of Spanish mission. Specialties include the Botanas Platter pork-filled tacos al pastor and grilled shrimp, and Chicken Tampico, grilled breast with artichoke hearts, mushrooms, spinach, sour cream sauce and melted jack cheese. The fully-stocked bar offers beer, mixed drinks and wine, and caters to trendy singles as well as affluent retirees.
The chef's choice meals and the cosseting service mark the beginning of your culinary voyage at Ino's. The high-ceilinged room is decorated in black, white and gray, with the sushi bar dividing the room. Japanese prints and art dot the walls. The service and casually elegant setting attract clientele from throughout Dallas. House specialties Sashimi and Sushi are truly from an artist's hand. The special Omakase dinner featuring Kobachi (a sweet dollop of persimmon and tofu sashimi, seafood soup and rare matsukate mushrooms in a delicate broth) is majestic. A full bar is available to complement your meal.
As is made obvious by its name, this is a bistro and bar located on the second story of the Westin Galleria Dallas. At The Second Floor, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of the week, there are a number of European-American dishes for you to gorge on. Appetizers like reuben sliders and house mustard crab cakes start off a meal that comprises delicacies like fire roasted chicken, grilled sea scallops and brick oven pizzas. The bar menu features signature martinis like the basil lemon drop and chocolate bliss, in addition to wines and beers. Privé, the private dining room, can be hired for events of up to 83 people.
The Forestwood Antique Mall Garden Tea Room is a great "ladies do lunch" place. Enjoy sandwich trios and fruit cups as you browse the antiques that surround the tearoom. Here, you'll find a quaint lunch atmosphere with simple cafe tables. Lunch hours are quite busy, but the delicate foods are worth the wait. The chicken salad and soups are homemade and wonderful. Also enjoy desserts which are made from scratch.
Although there's steak, salads, seafood, prime ribs, sandwiches, desserts on the menu, G.F. Prime tries to create a space that is different from the regular "steakhouses". An effort has been made to infuse it with light energy and dynamism. Professional musician and owner Tim Georgeff has paid attention to intricacies and used contemporary artwork, lots of red oak, clever lighting, and stained concrete floors for the decor. A visit here is a waste if you don't opt for steak, but if food is not on your mind, then head to the bar - resplendent with three plasma TV screens and a seating area studded with a fireplace.
If you want to have fresh and top of the line bakery products, this would be the cafe to come to. This place offers delicious bread foods, such as sundried tomato foccacia, asiago, sourdough, pumpernickel, and whole wheat bread, all baked fresh on a daily basis. The bakery cafe has three different menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there is an interesting take out menu as well. The cafe also serves gourmet coffee, which is definitely worth a try.
Less than two years old, Soho joins just two other Dallas restaurants in providing live jazz. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights a band crowds onto the postage-stamp-size stage and turns out delightful jazz. The open ceiling creates favorable acoustics, while the blue and steel grey interior is offset with a combination of Asian and Italian decor. Italian and Asian flavors dominate the menu as well, and although the dishes are not traditional, the two tastes are never fused into a single menu item. Lightly seasoned Sea Bass served over Tuscan-style white beans is a house favorite.
