It is a perfect day in Dallas today. Sunny, warm and not a cloud in the sky. And if you happen to be anywhere near the Dallas Centurion lounge you can swing by and check out a brand new menu that has debuted today! I was told by the manager, Michael they intend to rotate every two weeks now.

If you find on your travels you will frequent airports with Centurion Clubs either of these cards can be a real value to you for access to the clubs. You will need a same day departing or arrival boarding pass and ID to enter.

- Corn and poblano chowder with Tabasco sauce and green onion cream.

- Spinach roasted poblano peppers caramelized queso enchiladas.
- Maple and malt vinegar braised collard greens with smoked bacon.
- Jalapeno cheddar cheese grits.
- Charred tomatillo and poblano salsa.
- Charred tomato salsa.
- Sweet potato and maple glazed pecan parfait.
- Mexican rice pudding cajeta
- Chopped salad with corn, tri colored peppers.
- Sweet Tomatoes smoked bacon crispy BBQ spiced hominy.

This really is a nice way to spend a few hours between flights or even to daydream away half a day before you go searching for Texas BBQ. Well, at least that is my plan for the day! – Rene
