November is the capstone month for home cooks, but that doesn’t mean a moratorium on dining out. To the contrary, dinner reservations are a welcome way to show appreciation for the impending bird-thawing and casserole-prepping during this month of foliage and feasts.
Your Resy Hit List has some methods to get the party started. You could start with an afternoon holiday tea with scones and English double cream at The Adolphus’s French Room. Then, perhaps take a tour of Lockwood Distilling Co.’s facilities and bag a bottle of their bourbon cream liqueur as a host gift, or for yourself. When the home cook in you is ready to put down the chef’s knife, head downtown for cocktails and a glimpse of The Woolworth’s new facelift, or to Uptown for the beautiful cooking at Lyla.
After all, gluttony gets a pardon this month and we can bond with important people in our lives over food. So we’re grateful, whether the cooking is from grandma’s kitchen or our favorite DFW restaurants.
