Most hotel restaurants are mere guest conveniences, but Texas Spice and Bob's Steak & Chop House inside the convention center hotel are delicious destinations for Lone Star cooking at its finest. The hotel recently added four more restaurants, each with their own patio space to enjoy Downtown Dallas.
This iconic Downtown Dallas restaurant has opened at a new location. Patrons descend 18 feet underground in a canopied glass elevator, accessed from street level, for a culinary experience unlike any other. The American Steakhouse offers an expansive subterranean courtyard allowing patrons to dine al fresco and enjoy a New Orleans-inspired exterior space. Happy hour is offered on weekdays 4-6p.m.
Enter into a chic, modern blue-and-white restaurant for Neopolitan-style pizzas, panini, pasta & cocktails. Love pizza so much you want to make it yourself? Look at Partenope's website for pizza making classes on Saturday. Enjoy an authentic Italian experience!
This new American spot is a Dallas-based restaurant, a culinary training facility, and most importantly, employs at-risk youth to not only help out in the kitchen but also learn culinary skills that will help them integrate into the local workforce. Try the smoked fried chicken or the sweet potato ricotta ravioli. Cafe Momentum is only open for dinner Thursday-Saturday.
Need a pizza fix? Stop by Campisi's, one of the oldest restaurants in the area and one with a deep history to the city. Right in the heart of downtown Dallas, you can find the Elm Street location next door to The Joule Hotel's garden, which features a stunning, three-story Giant Eyeball. The menu features all types of pizzas, pastas and salads, so take your pick!

Ellen's Southern Kitchen
Located in the West End, Ellen's Southern Kitchen is the place to go for brunch when in the area. The menu features originals that you won't find anywhere else like the Grit's Benedict.

Bright colors, fresh ingredients and a thirst quenching horchata makes Salsa Limon a must-taste lunch spot. Choose your favorites among their street tacos, quesadillas and burritos, and leave room for to taste all their homemade salsas. Need a late night bite? They're open until 3 am on the weekend, so ask your Uber driver for a taco stop on the way back home.
Sip a delightfully crafted cocktail before dinner in this former five-and-dime space. Start with the nitrogen jalapeno margarita before digging into caprese lollipops and truffle fries.
This restaurant at The Joule Hotel showcases bold flavors and exotic presentations. The pig's head carnitas and BBQ pig tails are among the most memorable. Make sure to take a gander at the 30-foot Eye sculpture by Tony Tasset across the street.
