Dallas, day 2... with more coldness (and wind)

Day 2 in Dallas. A cold front came through, we were not prepared for cold weather. We started the day by visiting our favorite cheese shops

We had lunch at a fancy new restaurant hidden in an upscale gift shop, The Grange Hall (restaurant). I was nervous about the kids playing with the table settings, but I got over it.

Gruner Veltliner helped ease my anxiety.

All fueled up by a good lunch, we caught some interesting culture at the DMA.

so we did what we needed to stay warm... ducked into Savor

We had dinner at FT33 (no pics, food was good enough). One thing I observed at FT33, fine dining restaurants are filled with a much older crowd in Dallas than they are in Austin. (old money town and new tech money town?)

and still one of our favorites in Dallas, the Meddlesome Moth. I think this was the highlight of the evening.
