If last nights Catalog Preview Party is any indication of what is to come at the upcoming 20th Anniversary Cotes du Coeur International Fine Wine Auction and Chef Celebration Dinner we are in for a fantastic event. In the posh setting of the Samuel Lynne Galleries, surrounded by artwork from a variety of artists including none other than Dallas Restaurateur Phil Romano, the catalogue for this years event was revealed…and wow….there are some great items up for auction this year!
Over King Estate Pinot Gris and Acrobat Pinot Noir guests flowed through the gallery noshing on bites provided by Central Market, viewing the art and perusing the big ticket items for the auction, including a wine get away to Australia, an incredible Yountville wine experience with dinner at The French Laundry, a fly fishing get away to Jackson Hole with Chef Richard Chamberlain, and perhaps the best lot of the year – a 34 bottle donation in honor of David White.

I’ve been told the best restaurants are found in the worst places. You know, those old hole-in-the-wall joints that always seem to have lines stretching down the street. Who knew I would happen upon one such place today in my quest to try the cinnamon roll at the Mecca restaurant?
So far I have done just 10 of the Things Every Dallasite Must Do, so I set out to accomplish No. 11: consuming the aforementioned breakfast treat. Among the tire stores, carpet warehouses, and gentleman’s clubs on Harry Hines Boulevard, I couldn’t help but worry that I had chosen the wrong adventure.
