It’s perfect picnic weather outside, dontcha think? Not a cloud in the sky and not a hurricane on the horizon (good luck with that today, Republican National Convention). Do your stove a favor and leave it alone tonight. Instead, pick up this three-course “Dinner for Two” at Bolsa Mercado made by Chef Brian Luscher at The Grape; he’s incorporated some produce grown in the Dallas County Youth Village’s garden. Proceeds benefit Cafe Momentum.


Toby Haggard’s Texas arugula & mizuna salad, charred corn, pickled onions, Texas tomatoes, Vital Farms egg, hand-torn croutons and fresh herb buttermilk dressing


Dry-rubbed local beef flank steak, roasted yams with pole beans, Caprino Royale goat feta & flat leaf parsley and black pepper-lemon butter


Black plum cornmeal butter cake with spiced rum anglaise
