This Thursday, we escaped the NYC storms just in time to make it down to sunny Dallas, Texas. As if that wasn’t reason enough to celebrate, we got together with some of Gilt’s fabulous Dallas members for dinner at one of the city’s top restaurants, Fearing’s. The private Sendero Room was a perfectly beautiful space with floor-to-ceiling windows, complete with a view of the fountains outside.
Gilt founder Alexandra Wilkis Wilson welcomed some of the best dressed of Dallas (our members, of course!) and introduced Chef de Cuisine, Eric Dryer, and Wine Director Paul Botamer, who spoke about the curated menu and wine pairings. The very special menu featured Dean Fearing’s famous Tortilla Soup and his signature Buffalo dish—the cuisine was definitely not for the timid! We never knew that you could pair wine with Tortilla Soup, but Thursday night changed our minds forever.
But you never know what to expect in Texas—a storm appeared out of nowhere and dazzled the guests with a lightning show. We loved coming to Dallas and had the best time meeting all of the warm-hearted people who now feel like family—see you soon, y’all!
