There was a bit of fervor in the office when we heard there was a second Nazca Kitchen in Dallas. The new location in Uptown is a much larger and fanciful version of its original on Walnut Hill and 75.
South American cuisine can mean so much, especially with its European influences. This allows for a broad and interesting menu. The beautiful interior was designed by Hatsumi Kuzuu who also designed FT33. Continue reading
The nonprofit AT&T Performing Arts Center today announced that it added another “Kids’ Night On Broadway” to the run of Finding Neverland, which will be this Thursday, July 20.

Last week we were talking about some pop-up dinners, and one in particular was a bit secretive. A group of fifty took the bait and were joined with chef Kent Rathbun at his beautiful home in North Dallas for an evening under the stars.

An open bar included cocktails made with lush blackberries, and beer was provided by Four Corners Brewery. Guests were kept spirited by a musician who played quite literally everything you could imagine, and so well at that. Continue reading
