Execucelebrichefs Kevin and Kent Rathbun will appear on The Early Show (CBS 11) tomorrow morning sometime between 7 and 9:00 AM. On your mark, get set, program your DVR. (Wolfgang Puck. Sorry, I’m still miffed.)

This place just moved into the same shopping center that I work in and it is AMAZING! I feel like we just found the best kept secret in Plano. I’m not normally a tea drinker, but every single drink they have there is beyond explanation. Doesn’t taste like tea – tastes more like a blend of fruits, juices, smoothies.
Yes, I heard about that place. I’m not overly inspired to drive to Plano for a virgin cocktail. Then again it’s a great excuse to break out my old silver flask. I love a good challenge.1 Comment »
The New York-Las Vegas-Yountville-centric nominees for James Beard Foundation awards just came over the wire. And again most of Dallas’ talent was overlooked. Fearing’s is nominated for Best New Restaurant and York Street’s owner/chef Sharon Hage is nominated for Best Chef in the Southwest. New York design firm Mucca Design is nominated for their work at the recently opened La Condesa at Victory. Fearing’s is up against Anthos (New York), Central Michel Richard (DC), Osteria Mozza (LA), and Osteria (Philly). Here is the whole list. Read it and weep. Wolfgang Puck, murmur.
It may not be the Pulitzer but in the world of wine and wine blogging it’s a big deal. Especially when your name is Alfonso Cevola, the Italian Wine Director at Glazers, and your name is being tossed around with the likes of Eric Asimov for two American Wine Blog Awards (Best Writing and Best Graphics). His enchanting blog, On the Wine Trail in Italy, is always listed on our blogroll so I’m sure you’re familiar with his tales from the trails. If not, get hooked today. Chances are that he’ll win and he’ll go all suave bolla on us. Ya think? Naw. So vote here and vote often.3 Comments »
