Next week is the Dallas Art Fair, where the 2017 edition of Whitewaller Dallas will debut. We’ll be there to guide you through the must-see and be-seen-at spots around town as well as the top exhibitions, restaurants, shops, and more to check out. This week and next we’ll share the “Insider Tips” from those in-the-know on what to see, do, and consume in Dallas during the fair. Next up is Howard and Cindy Rachofsky, philanthropists and art collectors.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
The best place for lunch hands-down is Grange Hall, where, if you are lucky enough to be there when they serve it, you should order the caviar pasta, and if not you will dream forever after ordering the Snob Sandwich. The recently opened Mirador at Forty Five Ten on Main, where you can have a Cindy’s Margarita (yes, that Cindy). For late night we head to Americano in The Joule Hotel for their Guanciale pizza. For brunch, it’s Toulouse to indulge in their great French fries.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Of course the Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher Sculpture Center, and the Modern in Fort Worth. As for private exhibition spaces: The Warehouse, The Power Station, The Goss-Michael Foundation, Dallas Contemporary, and the Karpidas Family Collection. The Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium art collection is not to be missed. And the newest members of the Dallas gallery scene, Galerie Frank Elbaz, Conduit, Holly Johnson, Barry Whistler, Erin Cluley, Talley Dunn, Galleri Urbane, and Chris Worley Fine Arts.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
For us it is anywhere you are surrounded by friends, great art, great food, and a good red burgundy.
