OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 14 W ith the beach-y design details inside Malibu Poke — turquoise chairs, a surfboard propped against a distressed- wood wall, and fisherman's netting — one might expect to see a Malibu seascape beyond the windows. The recently o pened restaurant in Turtle Creek Village is a collab between nearby TJ's Seafood owner Jon Alexis, Dallas-based entrepreneurial brothers Ben Kusin and Eric Kusin, and FT33 executive chef Matt McCallister. Catering to our evolving obsession with the raw-fish salad dish known as poke, Malibu Poke offers classic bowls for lunch and dinner, such as red miso salmon and yellow curry hamachi, plus the option to build your own from a base (sushi rice, massaged kale, a seaweed blend), protein (tofu, salmon, tuna), sauce (garlic ginger, spicy chile, bonito aioli), and copious toppings, including avocado, orange, Asian pear, and mango. Opt for a kombucha or sparkling rosé, depending on the time of day. Malibu Poke, 3888 Oak Lawn Ave., 469.250.7074, Linden Wilson I t's a busy week: dozens of deadlines, three events to attend tonight, and an early-morning flight for a long weekend with family. As I answer e-mails with one hand, the other is getting manicured, all within the confines of my office. I'm cherry picking — I've successfully used the new Cherry app to book a manicure. The brainchild of Texas entrepreneurs Amber Venz Box (rewardStyle; and Whitney Wolfe Herd (Bumble; Bumble BFF; Bumble Bizz), who have both secured spots on Forbes' 30 Under 30 list, the Cherry app is simple: Book your mani-pedi service (regular or gel manis and pedis; manis and pedis tailored for gents), location, and time for on-demand grooming that eliminates the salon. Gloves and booties filled with a cleansing, moisturizing solution take the place of water, and Essie's most beloved polishes — Ballet Slippers, of course — make up the roster of available colors. From $15 for a hand or foot massage; from $35 for a classic manicure; from $45 for a classic pedicure. Available in select Dallas zip codes; free download through iTunes. Christina Geyer Wild for Poke CHERRY- Picked "F ewer, better things." That's the credo of San Francisco- based clothing and accessories brand Cuyana. The result is an impeccable collection of clothing — classic silk crepe de chine blouses, a lamb-leather wrap skirt, baby alpaca capes — and elegant handbags in Italian leather. Co-founders Shilpa Shah and Karla Gallardo started Cuyana six years ago as an e-commerce operation. Today there are locations in San Francisco, L.A.'s Abbott Kinney Less, Luxuriously MORE neighborhood, Boston, and now Dallas' NorthPark Center. Here, the full collection is housed in a sleek, minimalist environment. You won't find much color at Cuyana; muted tones of blush, gray, and cream are prevalent, with glints of emerald and plum.
