Everything is bigger in TEXAS, and today we’re dining in Dallas with Tamra Byrd, Personal Shopper and Founder of Southern Maze (Recently featured in ESSENCE magazine).  Tamra is a girl about town, from shopping, culture to dining. Follow her sizzling food journey below.

A really chic place to grab a delicious but healthy breakfast? 

Coffee House Café. I live in North Dallas so it’s not too far from me & I love the feel of this place. I usually go for the Parfait, Shrimp N Grits or Flatbread.

For a power lunch meeting, I’m most likely reserving a table at…

Iron Cactus. Texas is known for its Mexican food & I try to get it as often as possible. This place is trendy, chic and the food is aMAZEing. 

I could dine at Whiskey Cake everyday and be happy.

Best place to grab a cocktail with girlfriends is at… 

Taco Diner. Give us a good margarita and a patio and we are good to go!

My cocktail of choice is….

Anything with Jack Daniels or Hennessy. Tennessee Stud from Whiskey Cake is my favorite right now. 

 I’m a regular at Whiskey Cake and Brad knows my order.

The last restaurant I dined at was Edoko Sushi, the food was aMAZEing and the ambiance was perfect for a first, second and third date..

Brunch at The Common Table happens to be a go-to of mine. The Blackened Chicken is nothing short of a amazing.

 A really good wine bar is Cork, I’m a Cabernet kind of girl. Their selections there are pretty good.

 My guilty pleasure are COOKIES. Some have called me Cookie Monster, because I just love warm, fresh baked cookies. Creme de le Cookie never lets me down!

 My next dinner reservation will be at Yard House, because it’s a new to the Addison area and I’ve heard rave reviews on the food and ambiance. My next date night will be there! 

A perfect night in for me is take out from Palios Pizza Cafe with a chocolate brownie from Chili’s and a bottle of Cabernet. My choice of entertainment is a good movie from Netflix or HBO.

 My best food memory is dinner at…

Cyclone Anaya with my girlfriends at my last bday celebration. I had the Jumbo Lump Crabmeat Nachos and they were BOMB! The crab meat was so soft but still spicy and my inner thick girl was jumping up and down and dancing with excitement with every bite! Hmmmm they were so good, licks lips. 

If I could have dinner with one person dead or alive it would be….

Diane Von Furstenburg at Whiskey Cake. Would love to talk fashion and entrepreneurship over a savory meal at my new favorite restaurant.
