Well, things haven’t improved much since last week’s snooze fest. The producers tried to spice things up this week with a pea puree bandit and a “romance” between our girl Tiffany and Ed. Puh-lease. I really could’ve used some of the toothpicks from the QFC to prop open my eyelids. Let’s discuss anyways. Jump for it.5 Comments »
Nick Badovinus has silently opened the doors to his new Neighborhood Services Bar & Grille in Preston Royal (southeast quadrant). The interior is a knockout—it seems smaller than the original perhaps because the space is divided into two separate dining rooms with a long 14-seat communal or large-party table in the back. The seating at the bar is basically in the kitchen which is cool if you like to watch. I slipped in and tried the French cut pork chop (fat cap on and on the bone) topped with bourbon caramelized Texas peaches served with cheddar cheese grits garnished with bacon. I would return and eat it again tonight. No resos but you can call ahead and get on the list. 214-368-1101. Go. Eat. Report.
UPDATE: Lunch service will start in mid-September. No take-out service at this time.12 Comments »
Blame it on the full moon. Blame it on the bossa nova. What. Ever. A few gals from the office went to dinner last Saturday at Horne & Dekker and one slipped part of a centerpiece into her purse. It wasn’t an elaborate candle or flower arrangement, the centerpieces at Horne & Dekker are a trio of house-labeled peas, carrots, and whoopass wrapped in kitschy H &D labeling. On their way out, one eagle-eyed darling spotted a lonely can of Whoopass on the patio and couldn’t contain herself. She had to know what was inside. (Full story here.) I sent a note of apology to owners Shawn Horne and Flynn Dekker and they replied:
I thought we were a little light on the Whoopass around here. We forgive your associate, but ask that she please return the silverware and fine china. Just remember that opening the can of Whoopass may cause harm…serious harm.
For the record, no china or silverware was swiped from the restaurant—just one No. 303 can of Whoopass. We asked you to guess what was in the can and we had a few bets going on around the office. Watch The Whoopass Mystery for the reveal.13 Comments »
