Vendor Information

Symphony of Flavors will be held at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas, Texas on August 28, 2021 from 12pm-3pm. We expect up to 1,000 guests for the Grand Tasting session and we require you to remain at your table during the hours of operation. The Event will allow restaurants to prepare a sampling of a dish representing their culinary philosophy. At the Meyerson, there will be tables featuring restaurants, food purveyors, wineries, artists and other exhibitors. All participants will benefit from exposure on our website and in the program.

Submission of the registration form does not constitute approval to participate in this event. The DSO reserves the right to deny any registration form for any reason.

Restaurants

Parking will be available in The Hall Arts garage.

The event will be the tasting type event, with the chef, owner or representative of the restaurant serving the food. The type of setting gets the public close to the chefs/owners of their favorite restaurants and allows them to meet the individuals responsible for the great food and experiences that they have had and to discover new ones. People will have access to the different stations where small samples of one or two of that restaurant’s signature items are available.

The table is also an opportunity for you to market your restaurant. We suggest that you provide menus, wine lists, critical press, or anything else that will promote your restaurant. We also suggest that you decorate your table with flowers, glassware, china or anything else that suggests your aesthetic.

Please bring your mise-en-place as possible, as well as whatever equipment you can carry. Because of the numbers involved, it is suggested that you choose your dish carefully. Terrines, roulades, ballotines, or poached mussels work well in this situation because they require very little onsite preparation. You will be provided a prep area, but extra equipment and space for storage and prep work will be very limited.

Each restaurant must provide a list of representatives who will be attending the table(s).
