With September comes the first whispers of fall, and all the season’s fabulous offerings. To kick things off, we’re spilling the tea on the city’s latest and greatest, from new shops and restos to wine tastings and online galleries galore.

Trova Wine + Market

Wine and dine in style at Preston Center’s newest vino venture, Trova Wine + Market. Touting a vast library of fine wines helmed by former Sachet sommelier Cameron Cronin, this airy outpost is the perfect spot for sipping a glass of bubbly or testing out a new Bordeaux blend. Snack on charcuterie and small plates while enjoying your libations, and be sure to check out the market for a curated selection of locally sourced goods. Also on the docket are winemaker-led tastings, classes and private events. 4004 Villanova St.,

La Perla

Italian luxury brand La Perla has officially taken residence at Highland Park Village. In addition to La Perla’s Dallas debut, 2020 marks 25 years of the brand’s iconic Maison collection. To celebrate this milestone, the fashion house has launched the Maison Rainbow collection, a line of embroidered silk lingerie in delicate pastels that pays homage to the original bestsellers. Shop Maison Rainbow, along with other timeless designs, at the newly opened boutique. 42A Highland Park Village,

Culture Place

Founded by Dallas Art Fair in response to the pandemic, Culture Place is a digital platform that allows contemporary art lovers to discover, connect and buy from galleries across the region. From the comfort of home, you can now expand your art collection, tour artist studios and enjoy virtual chats with your favorite makers. With artworks rotating every two months, September brings pieces from McClain Gallery, William Campbell Contemporary Art, Conduit Gallery and more.

Palmer’s Hot Chicken

The Nashville hot chicken craze has hit the D-Town crowd, with the latest concept settling in Lakewood. Palmer’s Hot Chicken is the brainchild of Palmer Fortune, whose namesake joint boasts a made-from-scratch menu centered on poultry perfection, with dishes available in four spice levels: naked, novice, Nashville and napalm. Savor a selection of Southern staples, like pimento cheese grits and banana pudding, from a shady spot on the restaurant’s spacious covered patio. 6465 E. Mockingbird Lane, Ste. 316,
