Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
This week is the Dallas Art Fair, and the launch of the 2017 edition of Whitewaller Dallas. We’re 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 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 Terri Provencal, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of PATRON Magazine.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP
I love Julian Barsotti’s newest hot spot, Sprezza, a Roman restaurant and tavern –– do try the Maine lobster gnocchetti. A visit to Dallas Farmers Market offers a nice foray. Make a stop at Mudhen Meat and Greens for locally sourced vegetables. Flora Street Café is a must for anyone who wants to experience the ingenuity of our esteemed chef Stephan Pyles.
WHERE TO SEE ART
Agustín Arteaga, the new director at DMA, is bringing Latin American art to the fore with “México 1900–1950.” Nasher Sculpture Center offers the finest modern and contemporary sculpture in the world amid its extraordinary garden and Renzo Piano–designed museum. NorthPark Center is unlike any other mall with its museum-worthy collection. Gallery hopping is a must: Dragon, Monitor, Levee, and Payne streets; and outliers Kirk Hopper, The Power Station, Talley Dunn, and Valley House.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX
We don’t have mountains or oceans in Dallas, but we do have great parties, and plenty of them. From late nights at our museums to gallery openings and soirées of all kinds, the people of Dallas love to open their doors to new friends. And do stop by Highland Park Village for an al fresco all-luxury shopping experience steeped in local history.
