Re: Great restaurants near DFW

That's a tough one. Trying to come close to Fearings within a cab ride of the airport. I'd lean towards the steakhouses: Bob's Steak & Chop House (my preference) in Grapevine or Old Hickory Steakhouse inside the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine. You could just stay at the airport and catch the DFW Skylink...

Re: Why do Americans eat cheese before a meal ?

Don't know where you're getting your intel on American dining habits but most of the multicourse meals I've had for years had the cheese course at the end. Only exception would be an appetizer that contains cheese.

You might want to chastise Italians for antipasto plates while you're at it.
