I have just completed D Magazine’s June 2013 cover story: The 100 Best Restaurants in Dallas. Yes, I wrote 100 restaurant reviews and ranked the top 100 restaurants in Dallas. To complete the task, I had to toss out Fort Worth, Grapevine, and the mid-cities. Maybe next time. (Which will not be in my life time.)
We’ve decided to throw a party and announce the winners on May 22 from 6 to 8 pm at Sharon Van Meter’s 3015 Trinity Groves. Owners and chefs of over 100 restaurants have been invited. I took a quick glimpse of RSVPs and I can say this is going to be an unprecedented gathering of chefs and restaurateurs from the top restaurants in Dallas. There will be food: an eclectic mix of haute cuisine, off-the-beaten-path barbecue, and a variety of dishes from ethnic restaurants. Along with the food tastings, there will be cocktails by Brugal Rum, beer by Trumer Pilsner, DJ Jose Guevara, Land Rovers on display and a See’s Candy buffet. Additional sponsors include Express Working Capital and Poggenpohl.
For $20 you can throw a pie at me. The money collected will go to the North Texas Food Bank. Click here and fasten your seat belts. It’s gonna be a blast.
