Quite a few important people were born in August — our publisher Pat Martin was born on the 9th, I was born on the 20th, and fellow staff writer Sarah Bennett was born on the 15th.
While I’d like to say that Rise No. 1 is throwing a souffle party for Sarah, that unfortunately isn’t the case. The celebration is for the cooking phenomenon Sarah shares a birthday with — Julia Childs.
Make a reservation at Rise No. 1 (214-366-9900) for Aug. 15 between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to dine on some of the French dishes that Julia helped make famous. If you come dressed as Julia (inspiration here), you’ll get lunch for free. Oui, c’est gratis!
