WORLDY PURSUITS

It’s a busy summer ahead around the globe as the social season in Texas takes a rest. Here, our ardent purveyor of cool Jonathan Spindel recommends some top favorite recommendations to pursue. 

GOLDEN DAZE

The hottest restaurant in Dallas is, by far, Bullion. Helmed by Michelin star-awarded Chef Bruno Davaillon, it boasts a range of classic and contemporary French dishes with an ambiance, buzz and feel of a brasserie. Architect Martin Brudnizki knocks it out of the park with this futuristic design. At BullionRestaurant.com

TEA’S PARTY

English tea at 4 o’clock in the afternoon is serious business in England. May we recommend a glamorous twist with tea and champagne at the Skylon restaurant at the Southbank’s Royal Festival Hall when next in London? Pass the scones. At Skylon-Restaurant.co.uk
