I just came across a post from last August “KRLD Restaurant Week in Dallas: Love it? Like it? Hate it?” The comments were interesting, especially those that came from people who worked in a participating restaurant. I haven’t waited tables for many years but I can only imagine the chaos during that week/month. If you are a server, manager, busboy, or employee of a restaurant that participates in KRLD Restaurant Week, shoot me an e-mail. Thanks.
Former Shinsei chef and Top Chef cheftestant Casey Thompson has spent the last two years traveling Southern California learning all there is to know about wine, California farm foods, and how to pair the two. She’s finally made her way back to Texas to open a project that’s been in the works for over a year, a Southern-inspired restaurant she’s dubbed Brownstone. It doesn’t officially open until Friday, but I got the deets on the new eatery last Saturday night at the grand opening celebration. Jump for more.11 Comments »
I just popped on to Eatsblog to find out where I get some trumpet squash and ran across this dreadful news from Christopher “No E” Wynn : Samatha “Sam” Welch, one of the greatest servers in Dallas, has jumped ship. She is leaving Neighborhood Services and heading to the Green Room. Dang, now I’m going to have to think for myself.2 Comments »
When I was a little kid in Dallas, my grandfather always took me out to eat at cool places. One place I remember fondly is La Tunisia. The interior was exotic—low tables, wicker chairs, African fabric on the walls, and the waitresses wore I-Dream-of-Jeannie pants and veils over their faces. This may sound run of the mill now, but in the early 60s (?), it was over the top. There was also Ports O’Call and The Chaparral Club atop what is now the Sheraton Hotel. Anybody else old enough to remember The Golden Pheasant? Little Bit O Sweden? Lucas B&B? The Torch, Town & Country? The Beefeater?106 Comments »
