Tasting Notes — Dallas Voice
Design District hot-spot FT33 is really bringing attention to Dallas’ food scene. Its chef, Matt McCallister, was recently on the cover of Food & Wine magazine as one of the top chefs in the country, and reservations fill up quickly. If you wanna check it out, though, you might want to try a one-night-only wine dinner on Aug. 4 celebrating the Australian black truffle season. (The Perigord-style underground mushrooms don’t just appeal to pigs, but to dogs, pictured above.) McCallister will prepare a special five-course menu of truff-ed out dishes like scallops with black truffle and chives, and local Waygu with black truffle and heirloom garlic. And how about foie gras and truffle eclair with white chocolate for dessert? Seating starts at 6 p.m. and the price is $115/person (add $55 for wine pairing). Call 214-741-2629 for reservations.
