Where did you decide to stay? I remember your query of several weeks ago.
Definitely Stanley Korshak, which is a 5 minute taxi ride from the downtown NM (if even that). If you're going to have a rental car, then you could head north a bit (another 5-10 minutes) to Highland Park Village, where you'll find Pockets Menswear, Hermes, Beretta, Robert Talbott (if you want to pay $225 for 7-fold ties
), etc. It's in the middle of Dallas' most upscale neighborhood, Highland Park, and is considered "America's First Shopping Center", although it is actually a pleasant outdoor "strip center", here
BTW, good luck on the interview!!
Oh yeah, if you're shopping at the Crescent around lunchtime, snag a quick bite at Palomino. If you find yourself in Highland Park Village at mealtime, then get the grilled chicken salad at Patrizio. Mmmm. Makes me want to run across town just thinking about it! Cafe Pacific is good there, too, if you're travelling on "expense account". Otherwise, get a genuine Texas burger at Who's Who.
