Does the image of sitting on a porch swing on a spring evening with a cool glass of iced tea conjure up happy memories of a time gone by, somewhat like you stepped into a scene from “To Kill a Mockingbird?” One sip of Belvedere’s new Lemon Tea Vodka will take you there with intense flavors of green and black tea mixed with a bit of chamomile, fresh lemon, ginger and honey. Last night in another picture perfect setting, the pool on the 10th floor of The Joule Hotel, Claire Smith, Head of Spirit Creation and Mixology, introduce the latest flavor in Belvedere’s vodka portfolio just introduced at the beginning of the month. I was an invited guest to the event. Continue reading "What To Drink Now: Belvedere Lemon Tea"

Alejandra Arreguin, a 23-year-old student of the Politécnico de Guanajuato, is one of five students who traveled all the way from León, Mexico to Dallas last week for the 3rd Annual Savor Mexico (a collaboration between Desperados, the Consulate General of Mexica, and Politécnico de Guanajuato). Arreguin and the other 1st place winners from their respective categories prepared award winning dishes for a large crowd that gathered at The Milestone Culinary Arts on Friday. Desperados provided margaritas and mojitos as traditional Mexican music played throughout the evening, creating a festive ambience for the Yucatan-inspired dishes.

I feel like we’ve answered this before, but I can’t find it. So, I’ll throw it out there again. A boy loves a girl and wants to make her his bride. He’s toast:
Hey Nancy! I know you help a lot of people find places so I was hoping your people could help me. I am a hopeless romantic. I have basically spoiled my girlfriend with flowers, special dinners, romantic trips and the like. I want to ask her to marry me and I want it to be perfect. Is there a restaurant in Dallas that specializes in marriage proposals? I may hire a violinist so we will need some privacy.
Well, this isn’t my area of expertise. Anyone out there with a thought? Or ten?28 Comments »
This week Malai Kitchen, the Thai-Vietnamese restaurant in Uptown, held the first of their public “Thai Me Up” dinners: Five-course meals with beverages for an affordable $55. I attended as a guest on behalf of SideDish.
When construction began on Malai Kitchen in 2010, I was filled with a mixture of excitement and skepticism. Excitement that I would be living within walking distance of a restaurant serving food from one of the most exciting culinary areas of Asia, but skepticism that they would put out an eatable version. The spot was already jinxed: The previous occupant, Tom Tom Noodle House, did not make it.
A quick email exchange with chef Tracy Miller of Local confirms she is opening Restaurant Rosemont at 2912 Elm Street (@Malcom X). The kitchen will serve breakfast, lunch, and brunch. The fare is “simple American.” She hopes to be open in mid-May. “I’m working on the menu now,” Miller says. “There will be nothing over the top – very simple. And hopefully refreshing in every way!” She also says there is a huge parking lot adjacent to building that is for Rosemont’s guests only. No parking meters! Outdoor seating! Beer, wine, and Champagne!
Hours, etc. below.
UPDATE: Sorry, the name is Rosemont not Restaurant Rosemont. Continue reading "Chef Tracy Miller of Local to Open Rosemont in Dallas"
