We wish to congratulate our friend Farah Fleurima on her first day on the job with he Dallas version of Zagat. Farah is most famous for her work as the Dallas Diva, and has written for many publications including Belo and the Dallas Morning News.  We have been fortunate to have Farah contribute at craveDFW as well.

We find it important for the Dallas food scene to continue garnering positive, well thought out attention as with this national forum. We notice at her first day on the job Fleurima showcased the poutine at the Village Kitchen in Highland Park, and had a look at the Wine Poste.

Congratulations to our favorite Diva.
