Tonight I went by the Monkey Bar at Mi Cocina in Highland Park Village to celebrate a milestone for Dallas entrepreneur and concept king Jeff Sinelli. His company, Which Wich, just opened its 100th store in Edinburgh, Texas. The popular sandwich chain is now in 18 states–and still expanding. You may also know that Sinelli is the man behind Burguesa Burger, and rumor has it that he’s putting in a Burguesa in the downtown tunnels. Oh, goody! More La Monumental burgers for me! Looks like I’ll have to put that try-not-to-be-a-piglet resolution on hold. IJS.4 Comments »
High tea, royal tea, afternoon tea. Whatever you call it, it most likely conjures up images of prim and proper society folk gathering to sip exotic teas, nibble on finger sandwiches, indulge in scones and clotted cream and discuss the latest town gossip. Or maybe you picture kings and queens taking a break from their royal duties to discuss the latest comings and goings at court. Well, if you love those images as much as we do (we being myself, Style Editor for D Weddings and Raya Ramsey, D Magazine’s Web Producer), then we hope you’ll enjoy our upcoming reviews of Dallas-area tea services. Stuffy girls, we are not. Some might even say we’re quite the opposite. But you don’t have to have the decorum of aristocracy to enjoy an afternoon in the same manner as Queen Elizabeth and her ladies. So check back for our first reviews of The Adolphus and Fearings which are coming soon. And let us know about any tea services you’ve enjoyed or would like us to try out.12 Comments »
About a month ago Flames Grill opened on Trinity Mills in North Dallas. Over on PegHed, Teresa Gubbins reported the big news. She said the owner was Dine “Dino” Rraci and the menu was “steakhouse-style.” SideDish spread the vicious untruth. Last night a brave Disher ate at Flames Grill. He/she files this report:
Well, I ate at Flames on Trinity Mills last night. Nice place; I had it to myself the entire meal. Pasta with Vodka sauce. Nothing special, but good. Since it was just me, the waiter, and the chef, I got to talking with the waiter. He said he owned the place – along with a few other restaurants – and he isn’t Dine “Dino” Rraci as was previously reported. I mentioned I’d heard about the place on SideDish – he wasn’t familiar with SideDish. So I pullled it up on my iPhone and he read it. He didn’t understand why it was written up to be a steakhouse; the place is Italian that serves steaks. Then he told me he was going to put in a dance floor where the salad bar used to be (when it was a Brazilian steakhouse). Oh, and no plans to sell get a liquor license; I got a beer with dinner but he didn’t charge me for it. Weird. Very strange place indeed.
So, Flames Grill is the new old Tre Amici?8 Comments »
