Patrick Kennedy files a story about Urban Acres in the March issue of D Magazine. It’s an in-depth look at former-chef-turned-thoughtful grocer Steven Bailey and his venture Urban Acres. Here’s a snippet of Kennedy’s story:

When filmmakers, fans, and celebrities need a breather — or a few drinks and fine dining — in Dallas, they flock to Victor Tango’s, Hibiscus, The Porch, and Robert De Niro’s personal favorite, Fireside Pies. We’re thinking this year’s “go-to” fine dining destination will be Alma. The newly-opened trendy Mexican eatery features concoctions from chef Michael Brown of Red O restaurant in Los Angeles.

Alma is located at 2822 N. Henderson Ave.
