Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Southlake officially opened Nov. 27 – just in time to celebrate the holiday season. The eagerly anticipated hotel is at the intersection of State Highway 114 and White Chapel Boulevard in Southlake.

Not long ago we ran into chef Jill Bates, the recently former pastry chef at Dean Fearings eponymous restaurant located in the beautiful Dallas Ritz-Carlton.
