Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Second Helping


Even though there are no drag queens in sight (although we swear there was one little old lady with an Adam’s apple) , the new DISH Preston Hollow is every bit as fabulous as the Cedar Springs original.

If you haven’t yet made it to the new DISH, it’s worth a trip to Northwest Highway and Hillcrest Avenue. (Feel free to pop upstairs to Equinox and say hello to us on the elliptical.) The massive restaurant features one of the nicest enclosed patios on which we’ve ever dined pseudo al fresco. It’s so nice to enjoy the breeze without the bugs.

Much of the menu will look familiar, but there are some fantastic new dishes, like Ahi tuna crudo. The chunks of fresh fish look almost identical to the cubes of watermelon, so it’s another fun episode of “What are we putting in our mouth this time?” Luna’s corn tortilla chips are a great addition.

Speaking of, flights of cocktails ranging from Manhattans to vodka flagships (Grey Goose VX, Absolute Elyx and Stoli Elit), there’s indulgent variety at every turn.

Here, you won’t have trouble eating your veggies because dessert is your reward. We recommend the chocolate peanut butter trifle.

Or just drink in history with a flight of Grand Marnier.

Because everyone knows, Grand Marnier fills in the cracks.
