“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.”

Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea Chilton Galleries ends August 22, 2010

Duck Island, 1906 - Childe Hassam, American, 1859 - 1935 Oil on canvas Overall: 20 1/2 x 31 1/2 in. (52.07 x 80.01 cm) Dallas Museum of Art, bequest of Joel T. Howard, 1951.41

Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea, an exhibition of over 50 paintings, photographs, and works on paper, explores how visual artists of the modern period (1850–present) have represented coastal landscapes. Drawn from the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art and from local collections. The exhibition unfolds in several thematic groupings that bring together diverse works of art to explore a particular idea or question. Impressionist paintings, for example, will be shown alongside contemporary photographs, and the landscapes depicted in these images will include those from Maine to North Africa, Cape Cod to Martinique, and beyond.

Key Magazine • August 2010 • keydallas.com


Some of the DMA’s masterpieces featured in the exhibition include Berthe Morisot’s The Port of Nice, Childe Hassam’s Duck Island, and Yasuio Kuniyoshi’s Bather with Cigarette, along with Edward Hopper’s Lighthouse Hill and photographs by Frank Welch, Paul Cadmus, André Kertesz and Hiroshi Sugimoto. Organized across time, thematic groupings of artworks in the exhibition include the geographic dialogue between land and sea; the representation of coastal economics, including tourism in the visual arts; the emergence of a new and modern image of the bather; the symbolism of the coastline; and the coastal landscape as a purely visual phenomenon rather than a tangible place.

Chipotle

"because it's the right thing to do" by Kerrie Sparks // food-sparks.com.

When standing in your local Chipotle, starving, staring at the steam table of components, you may not be thinking about the LED lighting in the bathrooms, the Energy Star equipment in the kitchen, or even the fact that Chipotle holds the title for the number one restaurant seller of naturally raised meat…in the world. You’re probably just really hungry for an exceptionally great burrito that’s the size of a muffler. And you’re probably right there with about two-thirds of the nation. But, would you love that burrito even more if you knew that the meat came from a local sustainable farmer, a derivative of Chipotle’s ‘Food With Integrity’ mission? Or that the walls are dressed in low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) primers and paints? Like the artwork on the walls? It’s made from everyday items you can find at your local Home Depot, like corrugated metal, plywood, and steel, artfully arranged by Bruce Gueswel of MayaTek.

Since launching their mission to source food products locally, specifically sustainably raised meats, Chipotle has set the trend among ‘fast food’ eating establishments. They apply those sustainable initiatives in their building materials and choice of location as well. For instance, the West End Dallas location is a rehabilitated a space, taking up residence in the historic district known as the West End Marketplace. The rich honey color of the original hardwoods, expansive plate glass windows, and exposed rafters lend a soft, yet industrial look to this location.

Key Magazine • August 2010 • keydallas.com


Chipotle’s Director of Design, Scott L. Shippey, LEED AP, agrees that location was a benefit when rehabilitating the West End location, saying, “It was an opportunity to enter a dense downtown market. The challenges come once you start demo and turn up hidden conditions that you didn’t plan on. But in the end it’s well worth it. These historic spaces have a richness of character that you can’t duplicate in new construction.

Traveling with your pups and still want a burrito? The West End location offers dog-friendly outdoor dining, so Fido can have his tortilla and eat it too!
