Chef Bruno Davaillon, who earned national acclaim at Mix in Las Vegas, now calls Big D home. He graciously fed a small group of hungry guests at the latest installment of 48 nights in Oak Cliff.

A little birdie told us several chefs from 48 Night's past will cook for a group of 60 people the second week of August. This finale event will take place in the dairy mart next door to the current buliding where 48 Nights takes place. Tickets will cost $200 and unlike past dinners, it won't be BYOB because vino will be served. Delish!
Possibly as a result of a Davaillon food-induced coma, the diner shown here (wearing the white and red checkered Burberry shirt) set himself on fire. Luckily there were a couple of lovely doctors in attendance who graciously left their seats to attend to him. He wasn't terribly hurt, and only expressed concern over having singed his designer duds. Guerilla-style dining, indeed!
