What? Food on a fashion blog? It’s not unheard of. Many a fashionista moonlights as a foodie. Just look at Atlantis Home’s fabulous author Judy Aldridge. Not only are the rare furnishings of her home decadent yet inviting, but she also manages to capture the same mood with the recipes she posts. You can find recipes for dishes that are healthy and hearty, like zucchini fritters or red bean chili, to those that satisfy the sweet tooth (mixed berry pie and orange chocolate chippers, anyone?)
In the spirit of food and fashion, I am excited that KRLD Restaurant Week is upon us again. Presented by Central Market, guests can order gourmet, 3-course prix-fixe dinners for only $35 at participating restaurants in Dallas/Fort Worth (tax, tips and drinks not included). Proceeds go to benefit North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home.
In Fort Worth, I personally enjoy Cast Iron at the Omni hotel and Ferre Ristorante e Bar but I’d also like to try out Top Chef Casey Thompson’s Brownstone, located in Fort Worth’s quaint but posh West 7th development. In Dallas, you can’t go wrong with Dakota’s Restaurant, Samar by Stephan Pyles(get the black rice with fried squid or the potatoes and chorizo!) and Nobu.
So once again, here’s an opportunity to look good, eat good and do good for others. Bon appetit!
For reservations, call the restaurant directly or book online through Open Table.
