My friend Jenny and I went to the Neil Gaiman reading/signing in Dallas this week. I simply can't say enough wonderful things about that man. (More photos and info here at my book blog, The Rhinestone Bookmark.)
We took a few hours to stroll around the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff, a Dallas neighborhood that's really thriving with art stops, restaurants, and shops. (More Gaiman tidbits: Neil Gaiman worked on his book at the Bolsa Mercado coffee shop last year while his wife Amanda Palmer mixed an album at a studio in the Bishop Arts District.)
Greek Cafe & Bakery was delish. A sweet Greek Grandpa seated us and made menu recommendations. The baba ganoush and hummus were fabulous-nice and garlicky. We'll definitely be back. Next time, we'll try the dark chocolate baklava. It looks like a little hole in the wall, but don't miss it!
Unfortunately, we went on Monday, so almost everything was closed. Make your visit Tuesday through Saturday. Check the Bishop Arts District website to see which places are open Sundays.
