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 James Cope, Director of AND NOW.
WHERE TO EAT AND SIP Tei-An is our go-to for stellar sushi and soba. The Lounge Here is a new spot owned by my friend Tony Barsotti—it has excellent craft cocktails and the deviled eggs are amazing. The Belmont is the hippest hotel in Dallas for drinks, music (lots of musicians to be spotted), and an incredible view of the city.
WHERE TO SEE ART The Nasher and The Power Station are my favorite places to view art in Dallas. And if you have a free afternoon, the short drive to Fort Worth is worthwhile to visit the Kimbell Art Museum and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
WHERE TO HAVE FUN AND RELAX The Dallas Arboretum is the most underrated place in Dallas and a must to get away from the daily grind.
