Dear Lord baby Jesus, I thank you so much for this bountiful harvest event held at the always delicious Taco Bell Central 214. Get all jacked up on Mountain Dew while watching Will Ferrell flicks on Central 214′s comfy patio. Chef Blythe Beck will create pocketbook-friendly dishes and cocktails inspired by movies such as “Talladega Nights” and “Old School.” I’m thinking Shake ‘N Bake Chicken served with a side of Fig Newtons and a Mystic Mountain Blueberry Powerade Martini. Movies will start at approximately 9 p.m. on Sunday evenings. Entry is free, so get there early if you want a good seat. Go here for show times.
Sutra, the new restaurant by former Samar chef Vijay Sadhu, isn’t scheduled to open in The Shops at Legacy until November at the earliest. However, I’ve procured a rendering of the interior design. Sutra will be next to Sambuca and feature modern Indian cuisine.
The restaurant, designed by Robert Romano, features an open kitchen where guests can view the Tandoori master preparing kabobs and Indian breads. Décor is modern with Indian accents. In contrast to most Indian restaurants around town, Sutra will feature an active bar scene with a line of house-developed cocktails such as Sutra Martini, Bollywood Margarita, and Rajasthan Lassi Samplers. Indian wines (a booming industry) will also be available.
The menu is still taking shape but we can exclusively reveal menu specialties to be served the first time in Dallas. Jump for them! Continue reading "Former Samar Chef Vijay Sadhu Gives us a Sneak Peek at Sutra in Plano"
Tip of the toque to Lisa Petty for turning me on to this link, which led me to this link, that led me to this psycho foodie highly caffeinated twitter- holic who allegedly “invented” the term foochebag. Until I found this link to Brandon Smith, an intern for ABC 7 Chicago’s food reporter, Steve Dolinsky. (Hi, Steve!)
Foochebag: “foodies who are categorized by “attention-seeking, elitism, and superficiality.” Basically, arrogant food bloggers and Twitter users.
Wow, it’s a new day. Are you a foochebag? I guess I am because I know Steve Dolinsky! You are if you are the “mayor” of any restaurant in Dallas. Step forward and let thyself be known.
Update: Mister Foochebag claims he learned the term from Michael Nagrant.
Update: Phaedra in Houston is claiming the rights. I am a douche canoe for calling her a psycho foodie.23 Comments »
