#BishopArtsDist #BlvdierDallas

Don and I recently met another couple in the Bishop Arts District for drinks and appetizers. I love the unusualness of this area. It looks like no other place in Dallas in which I am familiar. Located in North Oak Cliff, it is the home to many shops such as restaurants, art galleries, coffee shops, bars and boutiques. It's a fun place to visit, dine, shop, and people watch! I especially love the chocolate shop, Dude, Sweet Chocolate and Eno's Pizza!

The couple that we met chose Boulevardier as a location to meet and talk about paper, wine, and food! Chris is from England, so he was quite pleasant to listen to during the visit. Chris is very passionate about his family tree and a business his family had during the early 1900's. He and Don were cooking something up for the creative center at Clampitt Paper which sounded pretty interesting. We have visited their home in Lakewood and have seen the history and art that was passed down to Chris during the last century. Some of it will eventually be on display at the creative center.

While dining at Boulevardier, Chris and Don ordered a bottle of wine by Bret Brothers. The 2012 vintage is a white burgundy from France rated highly by critics.

This is a great Chardonnay that has aged well. Drink until 2016+ ($46).

Love the tees the servers wear at this restaurant!
