A buzzy, clubby place with a handsome interior that looks like an arcade of a Mexican village and a guest list that often includes many of Dallas' boldface names, Al Beirnat's is quite the scene. On weekend nights, you'll have to use your elbows to get a martini at the bar, so it's always a good idea to get reservations well in advance. What you get for your efforts—beyond the fun of gawking at the city's wealthiest denizens—is tender, juicy beef. Lots and lots of it. In truth, the menu goes well beyond steaks and it even offers up some pretty good Mexican food and seafood dishes. But aficionados come here for the well-aged, expertly seared cowboy cut ribeyes, bone-in filets and even Waguy steaks (priced at a hefty $69). Come dressed to impress (which in Dallas means high end designer duds), you'll fit in better that way.
