What are your favorite restaurants in Dallas?

Nosh: Escargot fritters are the bomb, and the warm chocolate souffle cake doesn't look like much, but wow! Bolsa: Love the vibe and cannot go wrong with the bruschetta tasting. State & Allen Lounge: A solid standby. I'd starve if it weren't for S&A. If I'm not dining in, I'm taking out. Fireside Pies: There was a time when a pie was the only thing I wanted to eat. And the cozy atmosphere makes it perfect for friends or a date.

What are your favorite shops in Dallas?

Nordstrom at NorthPark Center: shoes shoes shoes. Saks at the Galleria Dallas: I buy most of my dresses for events there. L.Bartlett and Epic Apparel: Fun, trendy picks. Melanie Gayle: Love their dresses, though it can be hard to find my size.

What are your favorite hangouts in Dallas?

Park: A restaurant AND a bar in back. Love that! Get a change of environment without having to reclaim the car from the valet. Nodding Donkey: Great place to watch a game. The brisket and ribs rock! Sfuzzi: Blueberry mojito and meatball sandwich, please. Can't get enough of the patio on a Friday or Saturday night in the summer. Mi Cocina: People watching and brisket tacos. Done and done.

What are your favorite venues in Dallas?

Angelika and Magnolia theaters: I'm a huge fan of foreign and independent films, plus both offer a glass of wine. Theatre Three: Community theater at its best. Haven't been disappointed yet. Dallas Summer Musicals: I've seen a lot of Broadway shows, but hadn't seen Wicked till I saw it there. Loved it.
