Remembering Dallas Restaurants: How Far Back do You Go?

By Nancy Nichols |

When I was a little kid in Dallas, my grandfather always took me out to eat at cool places. One place I remember fondly is La Tunisia. The interior was exotic—low tables, wicker chairs, African fabric on the walls, and the waitresses wore I-Dream-of-Jeannie pants and veils over their faces. This may sound run of the mill now, but in the early 60s (?), it was over the top. There was also Ports O’Call and The Chaparral Club atop what is now the Sheraton Hotel.  Anybody else old enough to remember The Golden Pheasant? Little Bit O Sweden? Lucas B&B? The Torch, Town & Country?  The Beefeater?
