Cadillac is a proud sponsor of the 15th annual KRLD Restaurant Week, presented by Central Market happening across North Texas August 13-19 with extensions through August 26 or September 2. It’s an ideal time to explore restaurants at the top of your “must try” list. Or enjoy old favorites at special prix fixe pricing. More than 125 restaurants will offer three-course meals for only $35 for dinner and $25 for lunch (at select spots) – tax, tip and drinks billed separately. For every bite taken at participating Tarrant/Parker/West Denton County restaurants, a portion ($7 from each dinner and $5 from every lunch) goes back to help support Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth.
Little Miss Snitch has a keen eye. She caught sight of this Dallas Business Journal article which lets on that the 1400 Hi Line Tower is negotiating a lease with Sfuzzi. The tower, located in the Design District, has already signed on with Restaurant America for the gastro pub concept Central Standard Time. We’re still not sure what a gastro pub concept means… but we’ll let that one slide for now.
Restaurant America’s other gastro pub Park Tavern (at the Shops at Park Lane) is opening officially to the public on August 3rd, but just 48 minutes ago, it posted on Facebook that it’s hosting a mock service for anyone who can send a FB message:
If you would like to come by for our mock service tonight please send us a message with your full name, number of people in your party and a good contact number for a reservation. Mock service will be from 6-8pm tonight!!
Tuesday Boozeday, anyone?
Jump for savings and the official press release. Continue reading "Sfuzzi to Open in Dallas Design District; Park Tavern Has a Mock Service Tonight"3 Comments »
In conjunction with July’s Best Suburbs issue, I’m traveling to 10 different ‘burbs in the DFW area for a semi-weird cross-city food tour. I’ll be documenting all my finds in these ‘Burbalicious posts that’ll be peppered throughout June and July. If you feel like your suburb deserves a shot at some SideDish love, email me and I’ll ask my Magic 8 ball if I should go. Last week, I went to Sunnyvale.
A coworker caught me giggling to myself the other day and asked why. I pointed to a photo of a Texas-shaped waffle and kept laughing. I don’t know what it is, but something about a Texas-shaped waffle cracks me up. Off to super-south-of-Dallas Mansfield I went for a breakfast of champions. There the tumbleweeds grow, and waffles that look just like Texas are served on red platters big enough to fit a gorilla’s dinner. Continue reading "‘Burbalicious: What I Ate in Mansfield"
Less than a week after Cedar Food Park’s opening, the organizers are already making smart moves to change the hours. No more lunch service until further notice and evening service times are different from before. Read below:
“Cedars Food Park at Dallas Heritage Village, Dallas’ first food truck venue in a park setting, will postpone lunch service till later this year due to the extreme heat, and will begin regular service on Thursday, August 16 from 5pm-10pm and will continue every Thursday evening thereafter. Beginning Friday, August 31, the park will begin Friday evening service. Friday service will also be from 5pm-10pm and will continue each Friday evening thereafter. Cedars Food Park at Dallas Heritage Villages’ evening service represents the beginning of a unique collaboration between food trucks and Dallas Heritage Village, and will feature many of Dallas’ best gourmet food trucks, offer live entertainment, and sell beer and wine from local establishments. Food prices range from $2 – $10 with a portion of the proceeds going to Dallas Heritage Village. Always free admission and pets encouraged.”
CFP’s media guy Brad Friedman also tells George, our food truck scheduling man, “We already decided to have at least 3 beer stations at the next large event. The Saloon was a bit cooler and might have been a better spot to get beer. We’ll get it right. We will also add more signage for parking, etc.” CFP is all about improvement.1 Comment »
Here’s more reason for you to never leave the wonderful, full-blasting A/C in your car: Artizone, the online market where you can by local goods and get them delivered to your door, is starting a free downtown pick-up service every Thursday from 4:30 to 7 p.m., and you don’t even have to turn off your engine.
A concierge service makes it easier for you to pull up, show your ID, and get your trunk filled.
The pick-up service takes place at 555 Ross Ave. behind the Spaghetti Warehouse starting on August 2. There’ll be a chill party with Artizone people from 5 to 7 p.m. that night with free drinks, giveaways, and free food from some of your favorite local vendors (Kaurina’s Kulfi, La Duni, Scardello, Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters).1 Comment »
We live in a strange world with strange food fads. First, there was edible dirt, which birthed out of Copenhagen’s Noma. Then, in 2011, London had its own scary bout of breast milk ice cream called “Baby Gaga” that sold for $22 a scoop. According to a WSJ article that came out yesterday, now that it’s the height of barbecue season, some chefs are getting all kinds of crazy with edible ash made from hay and several kinds of burned vegetables.
Boston chef Frank McClelland, for instance, coats his food in ash and “sees potential for vegetable ash as a kind of breakfast spread—a wake-up call that could work better than jelly atop a buttered English muffin. ‘You need a little caveman in the morning,’ he says.”
Ashes on top of English muffins and bagels?? I’d rather eat my jelly and cream cheese. Ashes belong at the bottom of barbecue grills and in David Bowie songs.3 Comments »
The guys from Ava (Randall Copeland and Nathan Tate) and Veritas (Brooks and Bradley Anderson) have come up with a French bistro concept, Boulevardier, that’s soft opening tonight in the Bishop Arts District at 408 N. Bishop Avenue. Boasting an extensive wine list and dashing cocktails (like the Belle Femme), the menu (via Thrillist) is all rustic French favorites with a twist. Crawfish beignets, roasted bone marrow, and beef tongue pastrami are just a few of the brave offerings this neighborhood bistro is serving to a conservative Dallas crowd. Go big or go home, right? Boulevardier has certainly captured our attention.
