The Celebrity Guide to Dallas
We invited some of our favorite faces from North Texas to weigh in on where to go and what to do locally.
What are your favorite restaurants in Dallas?
I love seafood, and my husband loves steak, so we enjoy eating at restaurants like Bob’s Steak & Chophouse, Ocean Prime, Al Biernat’s, and Nick and Sam’s. I am also crazy about the grilled chicken salad at Patrizio. I know it doesn’t sound very exciting, but I think it is the best salad in town. We live in Plano, and one of my favorite new restaurants is Seasons 52 at the Shops at Legacy. It is delicious and very healthy – all of their entrees are 475 calories or less. Speaking of healthy, I also love the vegan restaurant Spiral Diner in Oak Cliff and Fort Worth. Their nachos are addicting!
What are your favorite shops in Dallas?
There is no question that my absolute favorite store is Neiman Marcus. They have the best selection of clothes, shoes, and accessories. I am a beauty junkie, so I end up spending lots of time in their cosmetics department. I am also a frequent shopper at Barneys. Their cosmetics area features lots of interesting, lesser-known brands that are truly spectacular and worth checking out. Barneys also has the best selection of Christian Louboutin shoes. My wallet wishes I didn’t know that! Vince recently opened a store in Highland Park Village. I am crazy about their warm, cozy sweaters. There is a great boutique in Frisco called Sussie’s. They have a great selection of clothes from designers like Milly and Ella Moss and fun jewelry. I enjoy working out, and the best workout clothes are available at lululemon at NorthPark Center and Galleria Dallas. Their workout pants are magical! They make your rear look half its size – love that!
What are your favorite hangouts in Dallas?
My favorite hangouts tend to be restaurants and malls! But when I want to give my credit card a break, I enjoy walking and running outdoors. The Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano is less than a mile away from our house. It is such a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon. There are wonderful walking and running trails. Another great place to spend the day is at the Shops at Legacy in Plano. There are lots of retail stores and restaurants and perfect people-watching from several of the outdoor patios.
What are your favorite venues in Dallas?
I have reviewed movies on television and radio for more than 10 years in DFW, so more often than not, you will find me at a movie theater catching a press screening of an upcoming film. If you haven’t seen a film at the AMC NorthPark theaters yet, you are missing out on a great movie experience! I am also a big sports fan and an even bigger Cowboys fan (even though it’s been tough to be one this season!) I have been out to the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington for games and concerts several times. That place truly is incredible.
