“This is certainly an upscale neighborhood restaurant, but the ambiance is sophisticated without a hint of snobbery. Small details like orange slices in the water and a complimentary bowl of crisp shoestring sweet potatoes add to the charm. All the seafood entrees we’ve tried have been outstanding.”

“This breezy timeless enclave is as appealing today as it was 25 years ago when the owner first opened the door.”

a bird in the hand..... how the largest US urban forest became a Dallas Jewel by Shelly Rosenberg.

Our fair city is evolving. Citizens are eagerly anticipating a shift in attention toward South Dallas. Marked by the notable turnout for the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge celebration, Dallas seems ready to forge a new path and to embrace an area of our community that has received little attention. The Trinity River Forest is an unusual 120-acre site considered to be the ecologic "crossroad of North America." A unique intersection of grassland, prairie and wetland, this area is considered by naturalists to be the largest urban forest in the United States.

For decades the area was ignored and riddled with illegal dumpsites, accumulating 1.5 million tons of trash. A virtual treasure sat unnoticed and unappreciated. But, consistent issues like increased flooding and erosion finally got the ball rolling. A decision was made to rescue this dying landscape. The pioneering project was the Trinity River Audubon Center. A consummation of the Trinity River Cleanup Project, led by the City of Dallas, the resulting center became a symbol of the restoration and progress we are enjoying today. 6 Key Magazine • July 2012 • keydallas.com


Our local parks department solicited bids from around the world and selected the venerable Antoine Predock as the designing architect and a relationship was forged with the local architectural firm of Brown, Reynolds, Watford and an impressive 21,000 sqft, LEED-certified sanctuary was born in 2008. This reclaimed landfill now hosts one of the most impressive, and cutting-edge, examples of modern architecture in Texas. Paul Fehlau, Executive Senior Associate at Antoine Predock, explains the “landscape-driven project” delivers two essential components to the concept’s success: “An event space that allows the public to relate to, and observe, nature and a gateway in which to explore and interact” with that natural habitat, connecting to an extensive network of hiking and biking trails. The very structure, does, indeed, foster an immediate interest in, and kinship with, the landscape.

Three distinct portions of the building literally represent the three main topographic areas. A wing jutting towards a re-created pond references the wetlands. A second portion, clad in native Cypress siding, represents the timber forest. And an innovative living rooftop of local grasses embodies the prairie. An area rendered almost lifeless is now a dynamic and animated community hub. The old city dumping ground evolves into a celebrated, modern masterpiece. And for our distinct purposes, natch, the ugly duckling becomes a swan. The Trinity River Audubon Center is a must see. If not for the sheer architectural genius, or to truly experience the wonders of nature, then to publicly support additional, and responsible, expansion of the next great Dallas development. for information to visit and explore: Trinity River Audubon Center trinityriver.audubon.org Key Magazine • July 2012 • keydallas.com 7

Find Your Niche and get your caffeine fix! by Kerrie Sparks // food-sparks.com

We’ve been exploring Dallas niches lately, and we sure do love the digs over at The Pearl Cup. Two lovely ladies who hail from Austin, Rita Davis and Carlene Saelg, are making their dreams come true—and garnering quite a fan base—as they make their stake in Dallas. We sat down with our Mexican Hot Chocolate on a chilly December morning and pondered a few questions for the gals.

KS: How did the concept of The Pearl Cup come about? PC: Upon moving to Dallas, we wanted to create an environment that was a hip, but comfortable, coffee-centric gathering place for the community. KS: You’ve made a name for yourselves with The Pearl Latte™, but I have to say your Mexican Hot Chocolate is pretty kickin’ – and it’s pretty! What items on your menu do you gravitate to most? PC: We both love our Italian cappuccino! It's hard to choose a favorite because of our routines that involve coffee. For Rita, Pearl Cup Blend or single origin drip in the morning and cappuccinos later in the day. For Carlene, Italian cappuccinos all the way! We also have several fabulous teas. We use Sterling Tea out of Rockwall, their teas are delicious! Rita drinks it hot or cold!

KS: Where are your beans are sourced ? PC: We do use a local roaster, Eiland, for our house blend, espresso and some tasty drip coffees. We also use Cuvee, out of the Austin area. We also have a guest espresso which changes every few months.

KS: Your interior space is very community and user friendly, and I love the use of mix-and-match tables and chairs, both modern and retro. What was most important when deciding on the ambiance you wanted the shop to onvey? PC: As far as the ambiance, it needed to be welcoming; modern but not too sterile or cold. Rita has dealt in antiques for decades and has always appreciated the warmth and character that is found with an older piece of furniture or accessory. The shop is dynamic, always changing in some subtle way.

And there you have it. Hitch up your MacBook, grab a book, or maybe those stacks of magazines collecting dust on your dining room table, and visit Rita and Carlene at The Pearl Cup. They’ll be nice to you, I swear. You can while away the day sipping your addiction of choice as you “work from home” (read: updating FaceBook and LinkedIn), and they won’t even kick you out! Mi casa es su caffeinated casa! Errr, whatever, you get it. The Pearl Cup | 1900 Henderson Ave, Ste B |Dallas, TX 75206 thepearlcup.com |M-F: 7am-9pm | Sat/Sun: 9am-9pm
