Dallas can be a great place to spot celebrities, from Kevin Hart playing the bartender to Beto O’Rourke ordering a pastry at a trendy cafe. Join editor-in-chief Erin Booke and food writers Sarah Blaskovich and Claire Ballor as they chat about other celebrities. Next, Sarah sits down with chef Julian Rodarte, the young new CEO of Trinity Groves, about his journey as a restaurateur (and how Phil Romano went to his first birthday party). We also share our favorite hangout spots (kids menus are not allowed!).

In this episode

OK, so we saw Kevin Hart at Happiest Hour, Beto at Window Seat, Mark Cuban at Sweet Tooth Hotel, and Dirk at Homewood. Where have you seen celebrities? And don’t forget to write down what they ordered.

RIP Antoine’s, with its long history and super-affordable sandwiches, and prayers for Restaurant Rye in McKinney, which is closed after a fire.

Do you remember Cozymel’s? Hearing Julian Rodarte of Trinity Groves talk about his family’s early days of restoration takes us back in time. But then he talks about his new spot, Lexy’s.

Where are you going for a date? A listener likes RM 12:20 Bistro, but needed more recommendations. Claire loves Lounge Here and Parigi, while Sarah loves Sachet (which has an impressive wine list), Meridian, Terilli’s, Lucia and the new Caterina’s in Fort Worth.
