Hi. I may be moving to Dallas from New York by way of Seattle (long story). My husband would be working at UT Southwestern Med Ctr and I'll probably try and get a job at the same place. I'm a food person and I love to cook. I am also an bike riding urbanite that loves walkable neighborhoods with lots of character and good food options (dog friendly, i.e. sidewalks & parks is also a must).
My question to you is what are the distinctive neighborhoods in Dallas near UT SW Med Ctr that you would consider living in and what great food options (stores, markets, specialty shops and restaurants) are nearby? The lesser the commute the better.
