Sorry, Oak Cliff. Sorry, Rob Shearer. East Dallas is starting to look a little more hip than Oak Cliff these days.
Cane Rosso announced last month that it’s planting its second location there, and now word comes that Houndstooth Coffee, a coffee-serious bar and shop based in Austin, is opening a 1450 square foot space on the southeast corner of Skillman and Oram.
Dallas native Sean Henry opened his first Houndstooth Coffee in Central Austin, but now he’s bringing his carefully curated coffee selection (which includes Cuvee, Counter Culture, and Madcap Coffee), at least two espresso options, and three brewed-by-cup coffees offered any given day to his hometown. Houndstooth also offers muffins and croissants, along with a beer and wine list for those of you not into coffee. We’re pretty sure that you will be, though, especially with the Houndstooth baristas guiding you through a special customization process that’ll ensure your becoming one of their patrons forever and ever.
Anybody been to Bowery for a hot dog? Todd Johnson has eaten most of them and he files this report.
It looks like gourmet burgers have moved aside to make room for hot dogs as the next comfort food to get its trendy haute cuisine moment in Dallas, as evidenced by a number of planned openings by restaurateurs such as Phil Romano (Hofmann Hots) and Sarah Lombardi of Lombardi Family Concepts (Dog House). Add Tiffanee and Richard Ellman of Oak and John Paul Valverde of the recently shuttered Campo Modern to that list. The threesome partnered to open Bowery Uptown in mid-July. The original menu was dominated by dogs of all kinds, from the Chicago style to a savory beer-braised bratwurst to a duck sausage topped with seared foie gras. That last one cost $18.
The holidays are sneaking up on me. Really. I haven’t even put up a Christmas tree or gone shopping for presents. This is terrible. Everyone’s tree photos and holiday blahblahblahs are making me feel awfully behind. But then I remember it’s only December 7, not December 21. I’m not behind. Everyone else is just early. I think.

I received an Waring Pro FS155 electric meat slicer as an early Christmas present and am considering returning it. But first, I thought I’d check with the SideDishers to see if anyone has any good uses for it other than the obvious. Is it worth keeping?
