Tish Around Town in USA Today!

Hey TAT Family!

I just want to drop you a quick line to share some fun foodie news! Earlier this month, I traveled to Aspen to attend the Food & Wine Classic. The entire weekend was nothing shy of amazing to say the least. I attended some great events, enjoyed great food, took in the sites of Aspen, and I met some amazing people. I also had a chance to meet some of my favorite celebrity chefs and foodie influencers.

But the biggest highlight of the weekend was seeing pictures of me in USA Today! As a blogger, getting photographed in a national publication is definitely a check in the win column.

Here is the LINK to the full article in USA Today.

I title this pic, Food Festival Focused! I was trying to figure out my next foodie move 🙂

Until next time…See you around town!

Chat n’ Chew with Tish Featuring Nikki Lee Brown

Hey TAT Family!

In this episode of Chat n’ Chew with Tish, I’ll be featuring Nikki Lee Brown, founder of Urban Prosperity.  I had the pleasure of breaking bread with Nikki at Sixty Vines while discussing her career journey, from teenage mom to starting her own company, Urban Prosperity, and becoming a heavy hitter in financial services.

Nikki Lee Brown, Founder of Urban Prosperity

Nikki launched Urban Prosperity in 2018 with a focus on developing critical financial foundations for women of color to increase their net income and net worth.  Nikki’s vision is for the organization to help women achieve financial prosperity via content development, financial coaching, courses, and community engagement.  During our interview, Nikki’s passion shone through with the way she spoke about her desire to build a brand that can benefit women that look like her. She was very informative and stated that; “Urban Prosperity is my love story to black women.”  This one statement, which summed up her ‘why’ for starting Urban Prosperity is quite powerful and gave me ‘chills.’

Nikki is currently preparing a financial empowerment conference for women, tagged ‘Permission to Prosper Conference.’  In fact, my interview with Nikki is leading up to the conference, scheduled for Saturday, April 27that The Westin Galleria Dallas. Nikki describes the conference as a one-day experience focused on exploring the various ways, tools, and resources women can use to obtain financial wellness across multiple industries.  She is creating an environment that is beautiful and social, yet informative and inspiring.

When I looked at the conference topics, and guest panelists, I was quite impressed. Some of the top nationally known experts in beauty, fashion, real estate, finances, digital media, and marketing will be in attendance.  There are so many fabulous panelists to name, but some of my favorites are, Claire Summers of Fashion Bomb Daily, Fashion Buyer & Designer Nichole Lynel, and Supa_Cent of The Crayon Case.

Permission to Prosper Conference
Saturday, April 27th at The Westin Galleria Dallas

Nikki expressed during our interview that she’s most excited about the entry courtyard décor and the interactive activations at the conference.  This is because, besides providing a financial content packed event, she also wants to create an environment that is inviting and fit for a BOSS.  Over the years Nikki has attended a lot of women empowerment conferences, but her favorite is ‘Create & Cultivate’, which is founded by Jaclyn Johnson.  She loves the content, informative guest speakers, and most of all the interactive activations, which inspired the activations that will be at the ‘Permission To Prosper Conference.’

See below Q&A to learn more about Nikki Lee Brown (NLB):  
Tish:  Where are you from, and how long have you been living in Dallas?

NLB:  I’m a Proud New Yorker, who relocated to Dallas in 2007, so after 12 years it’s my adopted city.

Tish:  Tell me a little about your background in the financial services industry.

NLB:  I started in the financial services industry right out of high school and have held various leadership positions across Sales, Operations, and Wealth Management over the past 19 years.

Tish:  What inspired you to start Urban Prosperity?

NLB:  Since I’ve built my career in financial services, family and friends would come to me personally when they were making financial decisions. Over the years, those interactions have grown to include friend referrals, and I noticed a pattern, especially among women. Women, in particular, women of color did not know how to improve their financial situation. And, I validated my problem statement with industry data, which forecasted a dire story for women of color in particular. It was at that point that I knew I had to start a company to help women achieve financial wellness.

Tish:  Will the ‘Permission to Prosper Conference’ be an annual event?

NLB:  At this time we plan to keep the conference annual with smaller community events throughout the year.

Tish:  Are you planning any other upcoming events?

NLB:  Building community is one of our company’s four critical pillars, and as such, we will have an on-going event series to inform and improve the financial landscape for women.

Tish:  We ask all our Chat n’ Chew guests, what is your favorite restaurant in Dallas?

NLB:  Hmm… I’m an extreme foodie, so that’s hard. I would say my favorite restaurant for food is Ocean Prime, but my favorite for dessert is Kona Grill, as their butter cake is amazing!

About Sixty Vines
The Chat n’ Chew took place at Sixty Vines in Plano, and we had a light dinner and wine.  This is one of my favorite restaurants when I’m in the mood for trying a new wine, and I love their food.   Sixty Vines have over 40 wines on tap (yes on tap), so you have more than enough wines to pick from.  You also have the option of getting 2 oz, 5 oz, or 8 oz pours, or a bottle.  The 2 oz and 5 oz pours allow you to build your own wine flight, which is always a fun option when you want to try some different wines.

Sixty Vines Wines on Tap – 40+ Wines on Tap

Meatballs – pork & local wagyu, san marzano tomato sauce, pecorino romano

Crab Louie – gulf jumbo lump crab, tender bibb, marinated tomatoes, cucumbers, breakfast radishes, chopped free range egg, asparagus, classic louie dressing

I had a fabulous time interviewing Nikki, and I enjoyed hearing about her journey.   I left the interview inspired, and excited about attending the conference.  I leave you with some final words from Nikki about her commitment to women.

“My commitment to helping women achieve financial wellness is what drives me to do the work on a daily basis. My daughter is watching, and this foundation is her future.”

See you at the ‘Permission to Prosper Conference’ on Saturday, April 27th.  Get your tickets on Eventbrite.  Also, make sure you follow Urban Prosperity on Instagram for financial tips and news on upcoming events.

See you around town!

TAT Event Recap ~ SWIG + NOSH: Texas Style Wine Pairing & Tasting

Hey TAT Family,

I had my first SWIG + NOSH event in Dallas over the weekend, and it was a total success! I am overwhelmed with joy to have my first event sell out. I planned the event to be a private and intimate wine pairing & tasting, centered around Times Ten Cellars Texas wines.

The event took place in the beautiful Tank Room at Times Ten Cellars, and it featured four tastings and food pairings, thoughtfully put together by Sommelier Cait Maxwell and Chef Joey. Both Cait & Chef Joey explained each wine and food pairing in detail. Cait also did an excellent job with educating the attendees on the history of Times Ten Cellars and how to taste wine properly. In the end, the attendees had learned the 4 S’s of wine tasting – SEE, SWIRL, SNIFF, and SIP, and were able to score each taste based on the appearance, aroma, body, taste and finish.

Here are the wine and food pairings served during the event:

SWIG #1 2017 Chardonnay
Pairing: Mediterranean Assortment (stuffed grape leaves, peppers stuffed with feta cheese and olives)

SWIG #2 2015 Red Blend X
Pairing: Pimento cheese with paprika on crostini

SWIG #3 2015 Grenache / Syrah
Pairing: Roasted beef on polenta with balsamic glaze

SWIG #4 2016 Muscat Canella
Pairing: Cheesecake with macerated berries

There was also a discussion on the current state of the Texas wine industry, and at the end of the event, attendees received a parting treat from one of our sponsors – The Cupcake Experience. The treat was a cupcake infused with Times Ten Cellars Rose´wine, individually packaged for everyone at the event.  There were also some fun giveaways and prizes given throughout the event.

The next Tish Around Town event in Dallas will be in May. Get ready for THE BATTLE between a popular spirit and wine. Are you #TeamBourbon or #TeamRose´?

Stay tuned to Tish Around Town for the details on upcoming events and trips hosted by yours truly.

Big THANKS to everyone that attended, the sponsors, Times Ten Cellars, Cait, Chef Joey, and my brother, George, for taking amazing pictures of the event.

What’s Next for Tish Around Town…

Hi TAT Family!

It’s been a minute since I’ve reached out to you via the blog.  I apologize for the eerie silence, and I promise I’ll make it up to you.

Over the last year, I’ve been traveling to some of my favorite cities and simply enjoying life.  I’ve also been focused on exploring the Dallas social scene centered around food and wine.  However, in the last couple of months, I took some time off to reflect on the next steps for Tish Around Town and see precisely where I would best fit in the industry.

Tish Around Town has always been about sharing my thoughts and experiences related to food with my family, friends and followers.  But now, I’m at a place where I want to take Tish Around Town to another level by hosting events and trips, with a focus on exploring and learning more about food and wine across different cultures around the world.

The plan is to host a variety of fun events and trips that’ll take your taste buds on a cultural and culinary journey while being educated by some of the best in the industry.  I will be hosting wine & cocktail tastings, supper club style dinners, food & wine festivals, and some other unique interactive events in Dallas and other cities…as well as out of the country. Tish Around Town is now going Around The World, so pack your bags and get ready to go on some tasty trips with me.  First stop on the international journey is South Africa March 2020 (more details coming soon).

DALLAS, make sure you SAVE THE DATE for my 1st SWIG + NOSH:  Texas Style Wine Pairing & Tasting scheduled for Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 2:30pm.

Tish Around Taste of the Cowboys 2018

Hey TAT Family!

So, I had the pleasure of attending Taste of the Cowboys 2018 fundraising event benefiting the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB). The event was held at the impressive Ford Center at The Star in Frisco. It was a great night of delicious food and amazing live entertainment, all in support of raising money to fight hunger in North Texas. It was a perfect event for Cowboys fans, as there were past and present players and Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders in attendance, and what’s a Cowboys’ event without Rowdy.

Hanging with Dallas Cowboys’ Mascot Rowdy….For the record I’m still an Atlanta Falcons fan ☺

The event was set up like a tailgate on field with 30 gourmet food stations featuring some of the best chefs around North Texas. There was a large variety of food and drinks to enjoy, as we were being entertained by two great bands. Big Joe Walker gave the crowd some bold Texas-style country music, and Jordan Kahn Orchestra kept us dancing to all the top 40 hits.

There was a silent auction with a lot of nice items to bid on during the event. A live auction, and football toss that benefited the NTFB’s Child Programs was also held. The live auction was a fun experience, with some unique items to bid on, and the football toss had people donating money, in return for a football signed by some popular Cowboys.

I had so much fun at the event – supporting a good cause, and of course tasting different food and drinks. I’m, definitely planning to attend next year’s event, and you should too.

Here are some of my favorite bites from the night.

Shinsei/Lovers Seafood & Market – Citrus Soy Braised Brisket Steam Bun with Green Mango Slaw

Legends at AT&T Stadium – Shrimp & Grits

Bulla Gastrobar – Chicken Paella with Mushroom, Artichoke, Carrots & Peas

Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille – Pork Chop Bites

Tish Around Town is now an advocate for local food banks, and I hope you will join me in contributing to the fight to end hunger in the United States. Make sure you stay tuned to Tish Around Town for details on how you can be a part of this movement.

For more information or to make a donation to the North Texas Food Bank, visit their website. If you are outside of Dallas, and would like to find your local food bank, go to Feeding America and search by your zip code.

By the way, Tish Around Town’s newsletter is coming soon! Yaay! I’m so excited for you to see what I have planned. But, for now, make sure you subscribe to the blog to stay in the loop on foodie news and what’s happening around town.

See you around town!

Brunching Around Town – Bolsa in Bishop Arts District

Hey TAT Family!

I’m re-launching a series I started on Tish Around Town called, Brunching Around Town. Brunch is my favorite meal of the week, so I try to make sure brunch is on my radar a few times a month. In the Brunching Around Town series, I will share some of my favorite brunch experiences locally in Dallas, Atlanta, and around the world.

I decided to re-launch Brunching Around Town with Bolsa, a restaurant in the Bishop Arts District, which is located in one of Dallas’ most unique neighborhoods in Oak Cliff. The district is a close-knit community with several independent restaurants, coffee shops, bars, boutiques, art galleries, etc., that’s always buzzing morning, noon and night. So, I had the chance to choose from several restaurants offering brunch. I ended up choosing Bolsa and enjoyed every minute brunching there.

Bolsa is a farm-to-table restaurant located in the western corner of Bishop Arts District. The restaurant offers healthy and appetizing meals made from the freshest ingredients sourced from local farmers and ranchers, and their dishes and cocktails are seasonally inspired.

The restaurant building is quite unique – a renovated old garage with indoor and outdoor seating, and had a laid-back and rustic feel. In addition to its parking lot, the building is surrounded by plenty of street parking, so you won’t have to stress about looking for a parking space.

My dear friend, fellow foodie and travel buddy, Kanika was in town visiting me for the weekend, so I was under a little pressure to pick a good spot for brunch. I yelped around, read a few articles, and then I settled on Bolsa. We made reservations early Sunday morning for noon, and we were seated as soon as we arrived. Our server, Andrea greeted us promptly, and she was fun and quite attentive through the entire meal. There were a variety of foods with numerous options to pick from on the menu. They had it all, from classic brunch dishes and original dishes to brunch cocktails, soups, salads, and flatbreads.

I usually start off my brunch with one of my favorite brunch beverages; a Bloody Mary, Bellini, or Mimosa. This time, I had a mimosa. Bolsa’s mimosas come by the glass or by the bottle. The glass is priced at $5, and the bottle of Sparkling Wine is priced at $15 with your choice of juice orange, grapefruit, pineapple & cranberry. I usually enjoy the bottle option mimosas over bottomless because I can mix my own drink to my liking.

Grapefruit Mimosas

We had a few others join us for brunch so we were able to try a few entrees off the menu. We ordered Steak and Egg Hash, Iron Skillet Quiche, Beet Salad and French Toast “Cakes”.

Steak & Egg Hash – potatoes, peppers, onions, shishitos, fontina & s.s.u. egg

Iron Skillet Quiche – spinach, mushrooms & chèvre

Beet Salad – local greens, candied Texas pecans & goat cheese vinaigrette – paired nicely with the Iron Skillet Quiche

French Toast “Cakes” – seasonal berries & maple syrup

Bolsa has an open kitchen concept, which I absolutely love because it gives me the opportunity to engage with the chef, as well as see what looks good before ordering. At Bolsa, I had the opportunity to see them prepare the steak hash, so I knew what I was having before I sat down.   We loved everything we ordered and had a lovely time brunching at Bolsa. I will definitely be back for brunch, and I’m also planning to come back to try their prix fixe dinner.

Chat n’ Chew with Tish at Zaytinya – A Staple for Mediterranean Food

Hey TAT Family!

In this episode of the new series, Chat n’ Chew with Tish, I’ll be featuring Washington, DC Blogger, T-Mac from Fat Girl N’ Motion, who I met up with when I was on vacation in DC. I had a chat with her over dinner at Zaytinya, and it was an absolute delight. Fat Girl N’ Motion was gracious enough to let me select the restaurant for our blogger meetup, and I chose Zaytinya because it came highly recommended by a few of my fellow foodie friends and bloggers. I also wanted to try it out, before they opened their new location at The Star in Frisco, Texas.

Food Bloggers – Tish from Tish Around Town & T-Mac from Fat Girl N’ Motion

Zaytinya is one of Chef José Andrés numerous restaurants scattered all over the US and Mexico. Chef Andres is an internationally-recognized chef, culinary innovator, and owner of the ThinkFoodGroup. He is known for championing the role of chefs in the national debate on food policy and has a non-profit organization, World Central Kitchen, which empowers communities and strengthen their economies using the power of food. Chef Andrés was named one of “Time’s 100 Most Influential list” and has earned several awards including the “Outstanding Chef” award by the James Beard Foundation and the 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award from International Association of Culinary Professionals.

Zaytinya, which opened in 2002, is a Mediterranean restaurant, and I love Mediterranean food and the culture. I usually go to more casual Mediterranean restaurants, so Zaytinya was a nice change for an upscale dining experience. The outstanding restaurant offers innovative food, which is inspired by Greek, Turkish and Lebanese cuisines. It is considered one of the top restaurants in Washington, consistently ranking as a Top Dining Destination in the city, and has earned numerous great reviews from the Washington Post and other publications.

When we arrived, we decided to sit at the bar, and we were immediately attended to by the bartender, Camila, who was attentive and delivered impeccable service. She walked us through the menu, gave us great suggestions and helped us pick our meal. The menu featured excellent cheeses and spreads, seafood, poultry, beef, vegetables, creative desserts, and more, as well as unique Mediterranean wines, cocktails, coffee and tea. We settled on the Kabob Tasting Sampler, Crispy Brussels, and Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie), all of which were delicious.

Kabob Tasting Sampler, Crispy Brussels & Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Kabob Tasting Platter – lamb, kofte, chicken, adana, tomato, onion, garlic toum, harissa

After dinner, we asked Camila if we could meet the head Chef. I was secretly wishing that we would luck up and Chef Andrés would be around and available as well, but no luck. Anyway, Chef Michael Costa, the head chef of Zaytinya in DC, was available and was so gracious to come meet us. He also gave us a dish to try from his private six-course dinner he was preparing that night – a one of a kind six-course meal with a 90lb Tunis Sheep featuring meat from the entire sheep and paired with wines selected by Master Sommelier Andy Myers.

Food Bloggers Tish & T-Mac with Chef Michael Costa

Tish Around Town Tip (#TATTip): Zaytinya is popular with the locals and travelers, so if you are planning to go during the peak dining hours, I strongly suggest you make reservations.

Dinner with Fat Girl in Motion was utterly fun. Our conversation flowed seamlessly, as though we were old friends catching up. We chatted about how she got started blogging, the DC food scene, favorite foods and restaurants, and so on. See the below Q&A to learn more about Fat Girl N’ Motion.

Tish: Where are you from, and how long have you been living in DC?

Fat Girl N’ Motion (FGM): I’m a native of Washington, DC. I’ve lived here for over 30 years.

Tish: How long have you been blogging?

FGM: I’ve been blogging for a couple of months – 6 months. I started in July 2017.

Tish: What inspired you to start your blog?

FGM: I was inspired to start a blog by my fellow foodie friends, who often asked me several foodie questions like, “Where did you get that meal from the other day?” or “Where can I go for the best brunch/happy hour?” I tend to keep this level of detail to myself depending on who’s asking. However, I came up with the idea to create a blog, so my foodie friends can stop asking these questions and alert restaurateurs/owners/staff of the industry the diner’s experience, either good, bad, or indifferent!

Tish: When did your love affair with food start?

FGM: My love affair with food started post-college years.

Tish: What is your favorite restaurant in DC and why?

FGM: My favorite restaurant is Matchbox, which opened in 2006 and now has nine locations in the DC metro area. Consistency is key when running a restaurant, and Matchbox has been able to stay consistent. Although they’ve changed their menu countless times, their authenticity has remained the same since they opened years ago. I, especially love their juicy Porcini Rubbed Ribeye entrée. You can check out my blog for the delicious details of my experience at Matchbox.

Tish: Tell me a little about you, and your blog.

FGM: Okay. My blog name is Fat Girl N’ Motion, and I’m just a fat girl who loves food, not a cook or critic. Watching a lot of Food Network programs inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and start to try out several dishes. I used to just post about my food experience on my social media profile until I started my blog. My blog helps me document and share my foodie experience. When I go to a new restaurants or try a new foods, I try to understand what/why I like the food while enjoying its comfort and then document it on my blog. I also have reviews of my favorite restaurants on my blog.

Thanks Fat Girl N’ Motion! See you next time I’m in DC for another fabulous dining experience!

Make sure you check out one of Zaytinya locations in Washington, DC, and now open at The Star in Frisco, TX.

See you around town!
