A few months ago, I interviewed bearish TV chef (and recent Emmy winner) Tom Colicchio, who was in town for the third anniversary of Craft, the restaurant chain he co-founded. It was a rare appearance here for Colicchio, who doesn’t make it back to Dallas often enough.

Well, not so rare now. For the second time in three months, he’s back, cooking alongside the Dallas team (which he touted as one of the best with his brand) for dinner Monday night and Tuesday. True, he didn’t make it here in time for Dallas Pride, but we’re still hoping he keeps his pledge to ride on a bear float in L.A. Pride next year. It’s the least he can do for Dallas after purloining our Craft’s pastry chef, Shannon Swindle, for his L.A. shop.
