Quite a few of the food trucks are starting to take their winter holiday. They’ll use it as a time to add menu items, tweak the truck/trailer, and most importantly for these small businesses, spend time with family. Quite a few of the food trucks are also booked for private holiday parties.
This week, we are adding Unforsacon Bacon and Simply Dosa, an Indian point-of-view truck.
Update: The Village Apt. popup Tuesday event is cancelled through the Winter.
Popup events include Tuesday at the Village Apartments, Wednesday’s Food Truck experience at Sigel’s/Greenville, and a Wednesday night Christmas Concert at the Vitruvian in Addison.
Here is your schedule for the week. Remember to always check Facebook and Twitter feeds. Jump. Continue reading "December 17 Food Truck Schedule and News for Dallas/Ft. Worth"
Whether you are shopping for your in-laws, your boss, your sweetie, or giving yourself a great holiday prize, these will pack an impressive punch and please any palate. Here are a few of my favorite wines ideal for pairing with everything from the holiday ham to crown roast to a gorgeous beef tenderloin. A few selections were sent for editorial consideration.
Raise a hat to winemakers who hail from our great state, though may not make their delicious juice with in Texas. Like Dallasites Craig and Ambassador Kathryn Hall of Hall Wines in Napa Valley. Year in and Year out their Cabernet Sauvignon consistently delivers great taste, style and elegance with just the right balance of fruit with leather and cedar notes. Another winery from Dallas residents Dr. Clay and Brenda Cockerell continues to grow their portfolio, creating interesting, balanced and beautiful wines from Calistoga, CA in their Coquerel Family Wines portfolio. They recently introduced a plum and spice filled Merlot and steely Chardonnay into the portfolio, already containing Bordeaux style Sauvignon Blanc, Petite Sirah and Verdelho. Texas natives Adam and Dianna Lee, owners and winemakers for Siduri in Sonoma Valley continue to rake in the ratings as each bottle of their varietally correct Pinot Noir from fruit sourced throughout California and Oregon packs an incredible punch of fruit forward and balanced flavor. On a recent visit to Willamette Valley a visit to Alexana, the sister winery to Napa Valley’s Revana and owned by Houston based cardiologist Dr. Revana proved to be one of the high points of the trip, tasting earthy, layered and mineral rich Pinot Noir from Oregon’s Dundee Hills. I expected nothing less as Dr. Revana’s Napa Cabs are also some of the best around. Continue reading "What To Drink Now: Wine That Is Guaranteed To Impress"1 Comment »
It’s never slow in the restaurant world, is it? Nope. No wonder Santa is always chubby year-round. I don’t know how that makes any sense logically, but it does. In my head, at least.
Craig Collins, a longtime majority owner of Red Hot & Blue, is bringing South American comfort food to northeast Dallas. Entrees include a fish ceviche (made-to-order with red onions jicama, and cucumber) and an Argentinian-style hangar steak served with Yukon gold mashed potatoes. The interior of Collins’ Nazca Kitchen promises to be a stunner. He hired Hatsumi Kuzuu (whose recent work includes Matt McCallister’s FT33) to design the inside of his restaurant.
Check out the rest of the menu here. It offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.

I was with some friends on Saturday who recently moved to the Southlake area and we discussed restaurants and one question they had was where to find good Peking Duck. I told them Steel very well might do a good job but wanted to get your take. They love Asian food and try to find new spots in the Richardson area when they are in that part of town.

I am looking for a bed & breakfast or inn that also offers a cooking school class or a foodie experience within 1-3 hours (ideally 1-2) of Dallas. I know of some in the Hill Country area but I have been there and want to stay a little closer to home. It can be cheese making, or a cooking class, or something else fun to do for the weekend.
