As hundreds of Dallas establishments jostle to find their place in a finicky market, Celebration, Dallas’ original farm-to-table restaurant, approaches its 45th year in business. Though the eatery has expanded over the years, it still occupies the same tree-shaded location on Lovers Lane between Lemmon and Inwood. They now offer full-service catering and an on-site market with a selection of to-go meals and local food products. Founder Ed Lowe and his partners have succeeded by offering simple, fresh foods served family style to hungry diners. In November, 1973, Texas Monthly’s review of the restaurant described it as offering “really good home cooking as practiced by long hairs, who also run the leather shop next door.” Mr. Lowe, who was the leather maker in residence at the time, joined us for a Q&A to offer his opinions on then and now.
