It’s been open for less than 24 hours and this already feels like old news, but allow me to add my two cents. Unless you have been living under a rock, you don’t need to be told that some place called Dough opened yesterday. In fact, I’m pretty sure there were some people there last night that do live under rocks, but they still managed to make it.
And in case you haven’t heard them yet, here are two words you better get used to, as I am sure within the next week they will be smattered across every food blog within a 50 mile radius of Dallas:15 Comments »
Mark Wootton, the cook as he prefers to be called, at Garden Café says Garden Café is back up and running. Last night he emailed this note.
We have been struck by lightning twice in the last couple of years. What are the odds? So, we have been instructed to buy lottery tickets… and we will!
Mark was the cook before and after the lightning. OH NO. That song.
Meso Maya opened tonight. The “simple modern Mexican food” restaurant is located in the former Chic from Barcelona space in Preston Forest Shopping Center a couple of doors down from Dough. The 4,800-square foot space is owned by Mike Karns, president of El Fenix. The chef is Nico Sanchez, formerly of Consilient Restaurants (The Porch, Hibiscus). The house specialty will be Budin Azteca, sort of a Mexican lasagna or tortilla pie if you will, along with sopas such as sopa de lima and posole de puerco.
