Chef David McMillan is in charge of this charming dining room, which overlooks the fountain at One Arts Plaza. Dip a firm fried green tomato in a spicy Creole cream sauce, sip a mint julep served in a cold pewter cup, and watch the sun set over the Dallas skyline. The menu is full of tricked-up Southern specialties and some of McMillan’s latest concoctions, such as seared foie gras in a Southern Comfort reduction and served with grits or the barbecued beef marrow bones. Pre-theater three-course dinner for $35 from 5 to 7 PM.
