In August we got a sneak preview of this year’s Park & Palate that tempted us with hamachi, sweet desserts by pastry chef Julie Vorce, and plenty of bubbles. Chefs and barmen gathered to let the media know about the annual fundraiser for the park and all it would entail this year.
Fast forward to October 22
Then the real day came and we got to frolic in the park with cocktails in hand and plenty to taste. The decor was gorgeous, the day was warm but not too warm and the people-watching was fab. There was just so much to taste, see and sip!
Here’s a bunch of photos I took:
Recap: Dallas is serious about its food and its drinks.
Honestly, Park and Palate is just as inventive, fun and delicious as any big food event in another city, whether it be FEAST Portland or Austin Food and Wine. It can truly compete with the best of the best. If you’re into food, you’ll want to get into P&P next year. Plus, it helps support the park, and that’s a cause we can all get behind.
