Legendary Downtown Dallas Hotel Debuts Holiday Events with new TXGiving at The Fairmont, Thanksgiving with a Texas Flair by Executive Chef Jared Harms 


DALLAS (November 12, 2018) - The Fairmont Dallas, the luxury Dallas hotel destination in the exclusive Arts District, announces “TXGiving at the Fairmont,” kicking off several new signature experiences this holiday season. Open to both hotel guests and the public, “TXGiving at The Fairmont” offers three special ways to celebrate Thanksgiving including a Thanksgiving Brunch Buffet, Thanksgiving Dinner at the Pyramid Restaurant and even “Turkey to Go,” a four-course chef-prepared dinner for four or eight people, ready for easy pickup. 


Designed by Executive Chef Jared Harms, the trio of Texas-inspired events plays homage to his roots of growing up in South Texas and learning dishes from a  a “true home chef, his mom,” while marrying all the regional cuisine influences of Texas as well as his own culinary adventures in North Texas.
