What are your favorite restaurants in Dallas?

I have three favorite places in Dallas: Parigi, the restaurant at the Mansion, and Fearing’s at The Ritz. Parigi is so sexy and super cozy, which I love. Also, the name is Italian for Paris and, as I spent years living and training in Paris, any restaurant that reminds me of my old home is an instant hit for me. The Mansion has that old-world elegance that is so hard to come by nowadays. I automatically feel like a Lord of the Manor when I walk in. It’s heavenly. And Fearing’s is just so fun — chic and nouveau.

What are your favorite shops in Dallas?

I hold Neiman Marcus very close to my heart. Obviously, the downtown Neiman’s is the home of my salon, but I really feel like it’s the ultimate store for luxury. And with my store discount, I love it even more! I also really like Forty Five Ten — they really know how to create the finest boutique in Dallas. And finally, Barneys: it carries unique labels that I can’t find elsewhere.

What are your favorite hangouts in Dallas?

The Bar at the Ritz and the Mansion. The lobster sliders at the Mansion and the truffle French fries are to die for!

What are your favorite venues in Dallas?

Mostly I go to friends’ homes, social events and openings, but it’s hard to find the time to really enjoy all that Dallas has to offer. My work is the most important thing, then I go to a social event, and then home or the airport. I can be seen a lot at Dallas Love Field Airport, as I constantly hop between Dallas and Houston!
