Oddfellows, which will serve breakfast and lunch, weekend brunch, and will be BYOB, promises dinner service sometime this winter.
“The food will all be classic, fresh, and local. And we’ll have an excellent coffee program,” says our friend Stacy at Eno’s, who tells us that Oddfellows has decided to serve Cuvee coffee out of Austin. Last week Oddfellows received delivery of a La Marzocco Strada Espresso Machine, one of only four in the US.
Expect to spent somewhere in the $8 to $12 dollar range for breakfast and lunch. The restaurant’s Facebook page is suggesting an opening date as early as this Thursday.
Seeing how I was already in love with Eno’s craft beer selection, thin square-cut pies, and Perfect Picnic plate of cheeses, olives, pecans, and salami, you know I’ll be ponying up for a seat when Oddfellows opens later this week.
On Sunday, intern Meredith Stein attended Chefs For Farmers 135-person long-table dinner at Times Ten Cellars. Tell us all about it, Meredith…
Yes, they’ve done it again. Matt and Iris McCallister, the mastermind duo behind Chefs for Farmers, welcomed yet another packed house Sunday evening. This time, the shindig was at Times Ten Cellars in Fort Worth and guests quite literally rubbed elbows with one another as they crammed into the three long tables set up for the feast. Prior to the six-course meal, Times Ten kept the wine flowing as the 135 guests snacked on pizza creations by Jay Jerrier of Il Cane Rosso.
A Matt McCallister original — a roasted sunchoke soup shot — served as the amuse bouche and was followed by a gazpacho with blue crab and a hint of white truffle from Jon Bonnell of Bonnell’s Restaurant. Five of the six wines paired by Grace sommelier Ryan Tedder were products of Dunham Cellars (mighty fine work, Mr. Tedder!).
