Wedding 360 Heads South! { Day One }

Monday, August 2, 2010

Last week, Jean and I flew to Dallas with our awesome filmmaker Andrew Hsu of Studio MSV, to begin the filming of our very first series of online courses to be released at the end of this summer. Our short two and a half day trip was jammed pack with activities with Todd + Gang of Todd Events, beginning with our first night at Todd's restaurant Tillman's Roadhouse.

We knew Todd had a vertically integrated business, but we had no idea it included a restaurant as well. Of course, a restaurant owned by Todd Fiscus would naturally be fun and fabulous, and no detail is left without a touch of Todd's creativity! I especially loved their private dining room, named the Peacock Room for obvious reasons (I wish I had better photos!). Their menu, presented on an acrylic backing, had so many great choices that it took us awhile to decide on our orders. I loved the trio of fries that we shared, which had parmesan black pepper kennebec fries, chili dusted purple peruvian fries and smoked salt scented sweet potato fries with housemade ketchup and horseradish pickle mayo. Oh, did I mention we also got truffle infused popcorn prior to the fries? What completely blew us away though, were the out-of-this-world desserts that included old childhood favorites brought back with a modern twist. The best item to me, by far, was the S'mores Table Side, which included orange, maple and coffee marshmallows, cinnamon grahams, dark chocolate bark, and we actually got to roast them on skewers at the table!

What a warm welcoming we received from Todd and his team. Definitely Southern hospitality at its best! Hey, if you don't know who Todd Fiscus is, you need to. Here's a fabulous article to read, to get to know Todd!
