Here is the release just sent to us. Notice it is for men, women and children with an open bar. We also heard they are flying in a warehouse full of clothing from New York just for this sale.   Continue reading

Gilt City Dinner at the Mansion

by Steven Doyle

In March of 2010 Brooke Hortenstine, editor-at-large for local Paper City, did a clever piece with Mansion Restaurant executive chef Bruno Davaillon and cooked together for a day. This past weekend they reprised their kitchen tête-à-tête for Gilt City Dallas  and prepared a special dinner for a handful of people that virtually sold out in minutes.

As a last minute invited guest I was at once grinning and excited to see what the duo of Davaillon and Hortenstine might prepare. The menu was not created until the day before the event.

Stick with me on this, you have a chance to win a very special prize at the end of this read. Continue reading

We are particularly interested in the Lemon Drop, but Snickerdoodles bring back fond childhood memories.            Continue reading

Gilt City Launches, Fosters More Cravings with Foster the People

A large city such as Dallas inevitably carries the clichéd paradox of letting me feel lost amongst a crowd of people when I go out. It was thus with definite curiosity that I accepted an invitation to check out the Gilt City Dallas Launch Party at House of Blues on Wednesday evening, featuring a live performance by Los Angeles’ Foster the People.

It was an exclusive party for members of Gilt City, not to mention that Foster the People have already played a few sold-out shows in Dallas. The scene was predictable at the House of Blues, a venue that cannot seem to recover from its poor acoustics, but nonetheless an iconic staple that can solidify any band’s reputation in this city.     Continue reading

Are You Gilty, Dallas?

by Steven Doyle

Last night I attended the kick-off party for Gilt City Dallas, the steroid version of Groupon that entices its users with promises of exclusive menus prepared by top chefs, tickets to sold-out shows, and A-list pampering at luxury salons — all at mega discounts.

Although I didn’t get any new information from Gilt about the new Dallas venture last evening, I will be hunting down more details in the coming week that should prove beneficial to craveDFW readers.  Continue reading
