Sure, you're excited to see Sarah Jessica Parker on Sunday during her personal appearance (alongside her new SJP Collection) at the Nordstrom at NorthPark Center. But ever wonder what the mega style-setter thinks of Dallas, and more importantly, where she likes to visit when she's here?

Well, ponder that no more. SJP is pinning her cross-country adventures on Pinterest, but she's given Racked Dallas a preview of her Best Bets in Big D.

1. Urban Crust Wood Fired Pizza

1006 E 15th St
Plano, TX 75074
“My friend John Benjamin Hickey says this is a real destination in old downtown Plano," Sarah Jessica Parker says. "According to John, the delicious food and great environment have helped to completely revitalize the area. I hope I have a chance to make it there!”

2. Urban Rio

Copy Link
1000 14th St.
Plano, TX 75074
“Another downtown Plano recommendation...I think it’s great that these two restaurants are credited with changing the neighborhood.”

3. Mr. Wok

Copy Link
2600 14th St
Plano, TX 75074
“My friends that are former New Yorkers/Dallas transplants claim this is some of the best Chinese food they have ever had. It’s family owned and operated and you ‘have to taste the Peking duck to believe it.' You also have to order it a day in advance.”

4. Casa Milagro

Copy Link
1403 E Campbell Rd.
Richardson, TX 75081
“Yes, it’s in a strip mall and off-the-beaten path, but it’s good ol’ fashioned Tex-Mex with wonderful food and great margaritas.”

5. Keller's Drive-In

Copy Link
6537 E. Northwest Hwy
Dallas, TX 75231
214-368-1209
”This old school drive-in on Northwest Highway has been there forever and has the greatest burgers.”

6. Nasher Sculpture Center

Copy Link
2001 Flora St.
Dallas, TX 75201
“This one-of-a-kind indoor/outdoor sculpture museum is a serene, perfect place to look at art. Feminine and practical, my Manhattan skirted trench in navy will complete your look for a day spent marveling at the sculpture garden.”

7. The Sixth Floor Museum

Copy Link
411 Elm St.
Dallas, TX 75202
“For obvious reasons (the horrible history of the place, the way Dealey Plaza has remained unchanged and the simple, unadorned quality of the space), this is such a fitting tribute to our former President and his life. And it goes without saying, but this is the only place you can experience it. An essential part of the Dallas experience.”

8. Truck Yard

Copy Link
5624 Sears St.
Dallas, TX
469-500-0139
“On lower Greenville, this laid-back area is surrounded by food trucks, booze and music. I love a food truck; they remind me of New York! The Inez is perfect for an afternoon at the Trunk Yard. The single-sole wedge will never sink into the ground, and it still gives you a little lift.”

9. Pecan Lodge

Copy Link
1010 S. Pearl Expy
Dallas, TX 75201
“This award-winning BBQ joint is one of Dallas’ best! Open Wednesday to Sunday, it closes when the food sells out. The line starts forming at 10 am so get there early! The Alison is for the girl who doesn’t want to wear a traditional ladylike heel, but wants a bit of height. She is ready to take on anything, even the BBQ pit!”

“Enjoy a day a NorthPark Center when I visit Nordstrom this Sunday!"
