Dallas :: Part 2 :: Top Chef Style

Dining in Dallas was definitely a treat...a delicious latin meal at La Duni our first night and then, because Callie and I are such big fans of Top Chef, we decided to hit up the restaurant of one of Dallas' contestants- Tre Wilcox. Marquee Grill is situated in one of Dallas' most wealthy neighborhoods and the drive there was almost better than the food. The food was good, not great...but we enjoyed the company of one another and NW friend, Katie, who recently moved to Texas. The highlight of the evening was meeting Tre...though most of us were a bit mortified by the whole process of asking for a photo...he was charming and delightful...so worth the humiliation!


Unfortunately Katie isn't in the photo as she asked if she could take it so we quickly got a photo of the 4 of us outside...in the amazing 90 degree weather. Seriously, it was so foreign to me to not have to worry or think about a coat, let alone a cardigan...I never used one once...and I'm a NW girl for sure...I brought 3!

 After dinner we decided to explore the neighborhood and soak up all the incredible homes...I am still dreaming of biking through Highland Park...so flat, so warm, so much to see.  Callie told us Ross Perot and George Bush live in this part of town, to name a few.

How fun, Jenny! ;) I know exactly what you mean when you write about how nice is to don't worry to bring a coat or a sweater...I am a fan of that kind of warm weather, but living in the Alps is like NW climate (the only exception are a few summer months...) ;)

This is fun to see you went to Dallas! I lived there for a year and LOVED Highland Park. I lived on the other side of the freeway from it but went there often to cook for a family who lived in the most gorgeous home ever! When Graham would come visit, we would spend hours walking/driving through the neighborhood and dreaming about those homes...
