Whether you’re a foodie, cocktail connoisseur or looking for something new, we’ve served up some of the best places to go.

BEST BAR FOR PEOPLE WATCHING

Al Biernat’s Offering exquisite fare and impeccable service, Al Biernat’s is truly a Dallas institution, but another thing that sets it apart is the bar scene that is a voyeur’s delight. From actors to star athletes to top brass CEOs, the gang’s all there. Snag a seat, grab a drink and have some fun. albiernats.com

BEST PLACE TO INSTAGRAM WHILE EATING

Te Deseo Upon entering the buzzy Harwood spot, guests are transported to an exotic environment full of colorful decor, chic design and, of course, bold flavors for the tasting. Better yet, the 14,000-square-foot-space offers a wow-worthy backdrop at every turn. From the floral wall on the outdoor patio to the signature blue tree in the main dining room, there are photo-ops to be had by all. tedeseodallas.com

BEST PLACE TO TAKE A SHOT

BEST PLACE FOR A MARTINI

Inwood Lounge For nearly 30 years, this jewel box watering hole has been a neighborhood staple.
