Remember chef Christopher Short from Bella? Or theHotel Crescent Court? Or the Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek’s private dining program? He was the execuchef at Artin’s but according to our waiter last night, Chef Short “left about a month ago with some investors to look at space north of here.” The north he was referring to was in the Shops of Legacy.3 Comments »
I have been to wine tastings where the room was so large you needed a Segway to get from one end to the other and its hard to hear questions. One might “hear” “do resuperitdatur og wiggly cadaver on toast?” However foggy the question, the authoritative speaker replies loud and clear to your ear, “Yes, absolutely. Remember that point.”
Huh? I rarely hear the question so how am I to integrate the answer.
Fortunately, that’s not the case at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek’s Wine Chat. The cozy but carefully structured wine tasting is is held every Thursday evening from 6:15pm until 7pm in the cozy Mansion bar and led by Mansion Wine and Beverage Director Michael Flynn.
Flynn has been nominated for The James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Wine Service Award three times and, at his previous gig at Kinkaid’s in Washington D.C., was described as the “Washington D.C.’s best known, best loved sommelier” by The Washingtonian. Last Thursday, there were several wine beginners in attendance and they all enjoyed tasting four wines from southern Rhone.

D Magazine has an immediate opening for an assistant editor. The job entails writing pithy descriptions and reviews of restaurants and bars across North Texas, using a web CMS to wrangle the large database of listings that feeds our online offerings and our iPhone app. The successful candidate (hereinafter called the “SC” to avoid that thorny “he or she” gender issue) needs to be unafraid of computers and telephones. The SC needs to give a damn about the local dining and bar scene. The SC needs to be of legal drinking age. The SC might not have any journalism experience but might just perhaps already have a blog on which the SC writes about food and/or drink. The SC will be meticulous, because in this brave, new digital world, copy editing and fact checking aren’t going to be done by anyone other than the SC in most cases. The SC, in other words, will know the difference between “everyday” and “every day” — and, while we’re at it, that “whipped chick peas” on a fancy menu really just means hummus. The SC might be able to tell us who cooked at Aurora without having to resort to Google. And, finally, the SC will be happy to work long hours for short money. Just being honest here.
