EDITOR’S ITINERARY

JAIMIE SIEGLE

N E W S T O T R AV E L B Y

The Music Never Stops I'm thrilled to introduce our annual Music+Arts Issue, which highlights some of DFW's favorite spring festivals, entertainment venues, exhibitions and more. We’ve intended to capture the essence of what the local arts scene is all about—diversity, creativity and community—and invite y'all to experience it for yourself this season. GET TO KNOW:

plenty of clean restrooms, local art everywhere and an inclusive, come-as-you-are vibe. Stop in while you're exploring Deep Ellum, or post up with your crew for a quintessential "Sunday Funday." Every genre represented on the schedule—jazz, jam, hiphop, techno, bluegrass. Inside, the small gallery showcases reasonably priced works by local artists, and rotates exhibitions every two weeks.

Get going! Explore the city at wheretraveler.com.

It doesn’t get more local than this. The "Art Co." is as much an independent music venue and art gallery as it is a neighborhood watering hole, with more than two dozen beers and craft mixed drinks on tap. As passionate music fans themselves, owners John and Kari LaRue have thoughtfully designed a colorful, creative space that any concert junkie will appreciate: cheap beer and a well-stocked top shelf,

Staying Sharp

Despite his outspoken nature on television and social media, “Top Chef” alum and Dallas’ John Tesar remains content with allowing his James Beard nominations and variousculinary accolades speak for themselves. Because whether you hate to love him or love to hate him, Chef John Tesar could really care less. Interviewed by Jaimie Siegle

Q&A: Chef John Tesar Dallas-based celebrity chef John Tesar has crafted a polarizing on-screen identity that, at the very least, makes for dramatic television. These days, however, he prefers to stay out of the limelight. We caught up with Tesar, 59, at his award-winning restaurant Knife in the Highland Hotel. Gracious and polite, he exudes a calmness that’s uncharacteristic of his reality TV persona, although his candid nature remains. Tesar has arrived with a relentless hangover in tow, for which he is extremely apologetic. He sips water slowly as we discuss everything from his newfound sense of tranquility to burgers, booze and sushi.

an out-of-control industry. We all have the choice to stay the same, or to grow. I’ve reached the pinnacle of who I want to be as a chef. I want my legacy to be one of a businessman. Do you think you’ll open more locations of Spoon? There can only be one Spoon. With seafood, it’s just a lot harder. Spoon [in Dallas] was critically acclaimed and successful to a point,

You grew up in New York City, but have called Dallas home for the majority of your career. Do you consider yourself a Texan, or would you still call yourself a New Yorker? I’m somewhere in between both identities. My heart is in New York … but I like the simple nature of the south—casual, but refined.

©KEVIN MARPLE

The fast-casual concept Knife Burger recently opened at Legacy Food Hall in Plano. What’s next for Chef Tesar? We’ve got another Knife [steakhouse] opening up in Plano [at The Shops at Willowbend] later this year, hopefully by early summer. It will have a butcher shop attached. The growth up there is just insane.

You’ve been known to have a big personality, both in the kitchen and as the life of the party. How have your habits changed to allow for this new path? Passion is my addiction now. No longer is it about the consumption [of something] for me; it’s appreciation. Passion is an expression of your soul. Where do you like to eat out when you’re in Dallas? I love Japanese food; I love sushi. I appreciate the thought and intellect of Tyson [Cole] at Uchi, but I love Oishii. You can spend around $80 on dinner for two. The chef there is actually Vietnamese, and a longtime friend of mine. He makes some of the most creative sushi in town.

What did you learn or take away from your time spent at The Mansion Restaurant? I would have to say the overall tradition of the place, and respect for what Dean Fearing did for this city. There’s something cool about it; there’s so much history. Do you foresee any more TV appearances in the near future? You know, I craved that kind of publicity for a lot of my career, and I haven’t really gelled all of those thoughts together as to why. Did I need attention? Is it because we’re social animals? Maybe it’s the way I’m wired. There are two types of chefs: chefs who are like artists, and chefs (like myself) who have a great palette. It’s something I was born with; I taste and look at things differently. I’m interested in visceral truth.

ing to understand that I’m only one person. I’ve gained an appreciation for life.

As someone who’s spent a lifetime in kitchens, do you enjoy cooking at home? I cook for my [seven-year-old] son at home. He likes vegetables— broccoli, green beans, squash and carrots—but he hates melted cheese! I eat simply: I love pizza. Ever since Knife I do love steak, but typically I’m not a big red meat eater.

We’re also putting a Knife Burger in Fort Worth [in a new food hall on Crockett Row]. I’m also excited to bring back Spoon, but not in Dallas—Laguna Beach. For the most part, I’d say my chef days are behind me. I’m a restaurateur now. Really? That’s a big statement. I mean, I’ll always be a chef; when we open new restaurants I’ll work on the line, but restaurants come and go, and I’m a control freak in

but I struggled with the notion that everyone thinks Texas is all about steak and hamburgers. It’s stereotypical, yet antithetical … but at the end of the day we’re humans, and we go back to what we feel comfortable with. In your new cookbook, you write that you’re “more grounded than ever,” thanks to Texas and beef. Can you elaborate on that? I’ve gained the importance of learning to be humble, and learn-

Amidst the craziness of opening new restaurants, expanding current concepts and traveling, how do you stay balanced and maintain your “zen” state of mind? There are so many distractions in life … I always try to get back to basics. Coming here [to the restaurant] and talking to you guys, getting off my couch, drinking water. What are your thoughts on the state of the Texas wine industry? It’s progressed tremendously in the last five or six years. I’ve had some pretty good ones. I’ve also had some bad ones. Still, having gone to culinary school in Paris, the best wine comes from France. 17

[WHERE INSIDE]

My Dallas-Fort Worth

[Author, "Change Your Home, Change Your Life with Color"] A design expert and longtime patron of the arts, Moll Anderson has an eye for style and a passion for color. Her most recent book illustrates the importance of color as it relates to a particular space, and how to incorporate it into the home. We spoke to the former TV personality, bestselling author and mother of four about Pantone's 2018 Color of the Year, and picked her brain on where to find the best showrooms, art galleries and restaurants in the city. —Jaimie Siegle

How are we seeing UltraViolet in design? What differentiates this hue from the typical purple? I am so inspired and over the moon with Pantone’s choice of “Ultra-Violet” ... I've actually used a similar hue in my own home in Dallas. Violet embodies everything from spirituality, creativity and romance to wealth, pride and elegance. It’s important to understand that we have emotional connections to colors [that are] defined by our childhood memories, both the good and the bad, right up until this very moment. If Ultra-Violet speaks to your emotions in a positive manner, then you should definitely bring the color into your home and life! What other colors are you loving this season, and how are they being incorporated? I've fallen in love with daring color combinations: red and pink, burgundy

and orange, teal and emerald. There is no right or wrong way to choose; but remember, it’s all about what colors speak to you. How (and where) do you get your retail therapy fix? Dallas has become quite the fashion mecca in the past few years. Highland Park Village is such a beautiful experience for shopping and eating. I’m counting the days until Park House [opens there]. The Tot has become a go-to since our family started growing. Forty Five Ten is like art for our bodies and Neiman Marcus is my classic designer fix. Both are a deadly combination, being across the street from each other on Main Street [in downtown]! NorthPark Center has become an amazing place to shop. They really know how to cater to "family shopping"— when you have to get everything from a pair of Nike tennis shoes to a Hublot watch. Last but not least, Mecox is my home away from home. It

feels like having a hot cup of coffee on a cold day with good friends. What are your top showrooms or galleries in the Dallas Design District? Why? There's Christopher Martin— [my husband and I] love and own his work. Michelle Nussbaumer pours her heart and soul into Ceylon et Cie. I always love the moment you step in [to a place] that makes your senses go wild. I love the Design District here in Dallas and honestly I can spend days going from store to store. Springtime in Texas translates to 'patio season.' Which are your faves for lunch, happy hour or weekend brunch? I enjoy happy hour at home on our patio, but besides ours my go-to’s are Bullion, Grange Hall, Mirador, Le Bilboquet, and soon, Park House. Discover more at
