Before I moved to Dallas, I had a hard time finding people to join me for upscale meals. Most of my friends just didn't "get it". However, when I moved to Dallas, I discovered meetup and a particular dining group. I now get to host groups dining at some of the finer restaurants in town.
I don't mean this to be an advertisement and it isn't since I get no benefit from this other than getting to meet other people who enjoy fine dining. However, I wanted to see if there were others in the situation I used to be in.... wanting to go to fine dining, but no one to do it with.
I have a group going to The French Room to do the grand tasting menu on Feburary 7th. We always have a blast when we go with lively conversation and (sometimes) dancing afterwards. Some are married, some are single, ages all over the place. Some have extensive experience with food, others are just starting their exploration. In other words, everyone fits!
If you're interested in joining us this time, or maybe in the future. Pop me an email and I'll point you to the place to RSVP.
