Sharon Hage, best known for her culinary innovation at York Street, brings her rare talents to My Private Chef for two special evenings. Chef Hage will showcase her ingredient driven mentality in two underground dinners at this popular Deep Ellum kitchen and showroom in late February. With a sustainable, farm to table product focus Sharon will prepare a once-in-a-lifetime meal for 30 people each of the two evenings. Guests who make their reservations will only be privy to the the underground dinner location and await Chef Hage to reveal their dinner menu with each of the 5 courses.
We are now tracking 23 food trucks in our weekly schedule and it is getting more and more difficult. Not all of them report every week, so you won’t always see all 23. This week we add Lee’s Grilled Cheese, serving mostly Denton county, Dos Paisanos, and Eat Jo Dawgs, serving dinner and late night in Ft. Worth.
We don’t have them in our schedule yet, but we did get a chance to try out the new Little Vessel Grill. Based on our one-item limited experience, and most importantly based on other food truck owner’s comments, this is a must-try new food truck.
Charity rolls: Trailercakes is donating 10% percent of all shop sales this week to the Ovarian Cycle Fund in honor of Helen Gardner, on Team Cancer Sucks. So-Cal Tacos asked us to give a shout-out to their customers, who donated $550 last week in support of a man who needed help to transport his recently deceased father back to Mexico. City Street Grille will be out tonight, Monday, in support of a Paws in the City event in Plano.
As always, be sure to check Facebook and Twitter feeds when the weather is this ominous. Here is your food truck schedule for the week of February 13, 2012. Continue reading "Lots of New Food Trucks Rolling, Plus your February 13 Dallas/Ft. Worth Food Truck Schedule"
Kinky Friedman showed up for his gig last night at AllGood Café with comedian Ruth Buzzi. Yes, the Ruth Buzzi from Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In. Buzzi lives west of Fort Worth on a 220-acre ranch where she and her husband raise cattle and quarter horses. Here is a brief note from Allgood Café owner Mike Snider:
In the course of a 1 hour + show, Kinky referenced: Zorro, Batman, Johnny Cash, Willie, Lone Star Cafe in NYC, albinos, Rick Perry (of course), Molly Ivins, Barbara Jordan, Jim Nabors, Muhammed Ali, Townes Van Zandt, Ira Hayes and so many more I can’t remember. He brought Ruth Buzzi onstage from the audience to tell the story of how she once cut Kinky’s hair back in the 70s.
Kinky is in town promoting his Man In Black tequila. SideDish reporter Haley Hamilton is meeting with him at 2PM for a tasting. Good times.
Given its Campbell Road address you might expect Kinado to be easy to find. Not so. It is tucked away an inside tract of the strip shopping center that occupies the southeast corner of Campbell and Central. Once you find it, you’ll discover a fairly dramatic dining room with chic, modern design elements that would not be out of place in any of the most fashionable parts of town. On one wall is a well-stocked bar that takes a stab at the current cocktail craze. On the other, there is an open sushi kitchen surrounded by seats for those who want to see the show. Subdued light helps to make the large space more intimate after nightfall.
