Her reality show, The Naughty Kitchen, may have garnished her some national celebrity, but it’s her innovative dishes at Central 214, inside Hotel Palomar, that have made her famous in Dallas. Stop by for dinner, where southern sides are served family-style, or perhaps brunch on the weekend for brûléed Texas grapefruit. Either way, a specialty cocktail is a must.
