1. The Mansion 2505 Pacific, Dallas, TX 75219 (Deep Ellum)

One of Dallas's finest restaurants, the Mansion's been serving up good ol' American fare with a French twist for decades. Brunch with bottomless mimosas packs a punch for your brain, your belly, and your wallet, but it's all worth it thanks to buttermilk biscuits and gravy with jalapeno sausage, eggs, and hash browns. If you're aiming to impress, the Brunch Tasting Menu culminates in the Dessert Buffet, a behemoth that features goodies like French macarons and pistachio financiers. Lunch and dinner boast savory items like Wagyu Strip sided-up with smoked duck fat fries (it's no wonder it's called the Mansion).

3. Hotel St. Germain 2516 Maple Ave, Dallas, TX 75201

If you consider wearing a jacket to dinner similar to dining in a cage, at least you'll have plenty of company in said cage, as men are required to wear a coat and tie at the restaurant at Hotel St. Germain, mostly because the place is pretty class, like, bedecked with crystal chandeliers, crystal glasses, and candles classy. Dinner is an $85 prix fixe and the menu rotates monthly, like when-it's-in-season Maine lobster tail on pasta they whip up in-house, with some olive oil-poached fennel and Sauce Americaine. For dessert, you might be lucky enough to snag the Paris-Brest with praline mousseline and hazelnut semifreddo in a chocolate cage, so, come to think of it, maybe being stuck in a cage isn't so bad after all...

Frenchican?) weekend midday hybrid-meal dining.
