Wine List Checkup: The Centurion Club at DFW Terminal D


by Andrew Challk

Time was, you went to the airport to catch a flight. Now, people may make the treck to DFW just to spend time at the American Express Centurion Club. AMEX has made a move that is at once brilliant and simple. Seeing the dumbed-down, emasculated concept of a club being run by the major U.S. airlines, it has set out to replicate what seasoned international travelers are used to at first class lounges in Asia or the middle east. There is the expected upscale decor, the bar, work areas, comfortable lounges and friendly staff. But there is also a spa where you can get a massage or a manicure. The first-class food menu is created in conjunction with Dean Fairing.

At the bar is Balvenie 12 year Doublewood, Herman-Marshall Texas Whiskey, Belvedere, Fernet-Branca, Tito’s, Hendrick’s and Jonny Walker Black Label. The cherries are maraschino. And best of all, there is no charge for anything.  Shrewdly, AMEX hands out free memberships to Platinum and Centurion members. Gold and Green Card members can get in for $50/visit.  Continue reading

Stephan Pyles expands his empire by adding Sky Canyon to his growing list of restaurants. Located in Terminal D at DFW Airport, Sky Canyon seems to take elements from all the Pyles concepts including fried chicken from Stampede 66, and plenty from Samar which is currently under a major renovation.

The new restaurant is a collaboration between Pyles and Gina Puente. Puente openedLa Bodega,  the first winery to be located in an airport, and opened Frullati Café and Bakery in 1996. Puente also introduced Nrgize Smoothies, Cereality (a breakfast cereal bar), UFood Grill and Urban Taco at its airport locations in 2008. In late 2009 Puente opened UFood Grill and Urban Taco restaurants at Parkland Memorial Hospital.    Continue reading
