Best of Park & Palate 2016


In its second year, Park & Palate delivered even more delicious treats and exhilarating libations. Taking place on one of the nicest days in 2016, the sunny and warm weather provided the perfect setting for their Grand Taste. Featuring small plates from the top 30 restaurants and chefs in Texas, one of our favorite DJs, and a few exotic cars (for photo ops of course), P&P delivered a perfect day of eating and drinking. We took the daunting task of finding some of the best dishes, but in our bellies all were equal.

Klyde Warren Park's annual fundraiser, Park & Palate, hosted some of the best chefs and wineries in Texas. Check out our experience at the fundraiser, and we hope to see you there next year!
