Chef John Tesar is getting back in the saddle as he makes preparations to open his latest restaurant concept, Spoons. You can now get your Tesar fix by attending one of his underground dinners that will be held at an unspecified location in Dallas, April 7, 2012. The dinner can be reserved on Eventbright and 40 seats have been made available.
