The crowds during the days, especially on the weekends, are a bit more "seasoned"...no green hair, no banger music, no security concerns. This is a funky neighborhood that is a restaurant destination for me. My all time favorite Dallas restaurant (a Yankee Not Going Home, I've been here since 1977) in Deep Ellum is Cane Rosso on Commerce...REAL pizza and the Caesar salad has silver anchovies, and they have an outdoor patio where you can bring your dog. Hunt for your Birkenstock's and your laissez faire attitude before you go to Cafe Brazil for monster breakfasts/excellent coffee or to have a truly amazingly loaded veggie sandwich on artisan bread for lunch. Want a white tablecloth and all that goes with it (not commonplace in this neighborhood) ? Try The Lemon Grass; you will not be disappointed. This neighborhood has morphed over the last 35 years. There are now a few interesting galleries and it helps that there is quite a bit of condo and townhouse residential, plus pricey apartment rentals in the hood and around the fringes. Night time music genre tends towards a younger crowd. Best time to go is around 11 a.m. on a Saturday or Sunday. This is not a slick, chic neighborhood; go to Knox Henderson or Uptown or Turtle Creek if that is what you are looking for. This is very laid back trendy with an edge.
