Empty cocktail glasses remain on the table. Water glasses and coffee cups, wanting for refills, are ignored by our server and her student.

Desserts, listed as "Indulgences," are heavy but unremarkable. The peanut butter pie is shaped like a hockey puck—a hard chocolate shell surrounding a creamy peanut butter center. It looks tempting but tastes...like nothing at all. Just cold and sweet. Ten-layer carrot cake is the calamari of desserts, sopping under an over-ladling of toothachy pineapple syrup.

The see-and-be-seen crowd gathers at Ocean Prime, though you’d think they’d prefer better-tasting fish.

Meal over, we linger a half-hour longer, gazing at the rich folks gliding in and out of Ocean Prime with their good handbags and well-made suits. There's a sense that important deals have been made at other tables, that those parting handshakes we witnessed probably set in motion big things we'll never be a part of. We pay the check (gulp!) and head out past the waterfall, through the revolving doors and down that pretentious red carpet. We may not swim with the sharks of Dallas high society, but we can dine among them.
