Taking my own recommendation, I joined a band of merry diners at the newest of the underground chef dinners offered at the not-so-secret location in Deep Ellum on the corner of Malcolm X and Elm. There a small group of food enthusiasts gathered with their own bottles of wines served by the staff of chef Ryan Barnett.
