Winston’s Supper Club is opening in the old Star Canyon space at the Centrum.

The Landmark, inside the historic Warwick Melrose Hotel, used to be the hottest spot and the prettiest dining room in Dallas. Hopefully, they will be back as such again soon. They are closing for a “facelift.” The remodel should be finished in time for Thanksgiving.

This dinner event may be too groovy for words, but I’ll give it a shot. Our favorite forager Tom “Spiceman” Spicer is teaming up with Chef David Anthony Temple (aka underground chefDAT) and Artizone.com to present “Dinner in the Garden.” The event, benefitting the Family Place, takes place on Sunday, October 30 at 5PM. The food, paired with wine, will come from Artizone supported local farms and vendors or, if you speak DATspice: “Chef DAT will compose a one of a kind dinner concerto in 5 movements, to be performed in Spiceman’s urban garden with an orchestra of wines to match.” Oh, yeah. Get down on it for $100 per person. Tickets here . Phone answered here: 214-325-4642.
That little boy in the picture is my nephew James. He is almost three. He loves the Texas Rangers and tells anyone who will listen that Michael Young is his best friend. (He kinda is!) James is psyched for tomorrow night’s World Series game in St. Louis between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals (7:05PM).
Another Disher is excited about the game. So pumped that he is flying to St. Louis for the Games 1 and 2 (Thurs.). He wants your help.
I’m headed to St. Louis for the games. Any suggestions on where to eat.

D Magazine intern Carol Shih prowls Dallas in search of the best Asian cuisine. Recently she tried using sign language to speak with a Korean woman. Didn’t work. People are suspicious of writers these days.
When my college buddy Hannah visited last weekend, she dragged me to Super H Mart in Carrollton to find her favorite Korean snack, bungeoppang (literal translation: carp bread), a rare treat in her home state of North Carolina. It took only a couple minutes for Hannah to spot the black appliance most street vendors in South Korea use to make this toasty fish pancake filled with red bean. Our stop: a little shop on the edge of the food court that spells out “Toreore” in red letters and sells “Chicken & Joy.”
