Reader Reviews: DFW Restaurant Week 2014

DAY FIVE: Hello? Is anybody out there?

DFW Restaurant 2014 is officially underway. If you haven’t made reservations, here is the list of participating restaurants.  In case you need a refresher: DFW Restaurant Week (almost a month for some restaurants) offers special three-course prix fixe dinners for either $35 or $45, or the Cadillac Lunch Experience which features three-course lunches for just $25, at select locations. Twenty (20) percent from each meal purchased will be donated to one of the charity partners Lena Pope and the North Texas Food Bank. Some will participate until August 31.

Each day you will find a DFW Restaurant Week 2014 Reader Review post on SideDish. Please share your various restaurant experiences. I also encourage you to tip your servers generously and if they go over and above their normal duties, which they are doing already, take down their names, snap a photo and send them to me. Each Friday, I will post SideDish Server of the Week.

    Went to Dishon Wednesday! The RW menu included “Chef’s Whim” which was shrimp and grits. Delish!

    Went to the Mansion. GREAT meal…. would go back in a second. Branzino, short rib, watermelon salad, smoked salmon dish was incredible….

    Winner – Nonna! Best meal I’ve had in a while. Looser – Javier’s – Horrible food. Has turned into a place for trust fund babies to drink and be seen

    wow, only 3 comments ahead of me? Guess folks were too busy eating. Now it’s all over: we went to four, Chamberlain’s Fish Market, Roy’s, Arthur’s, and Dish. Fave: Dish. What an attractive space, and great flavor complexity, friendly and efficient staff…oh the food was so nice! The one place, out of the four, that I will gladly pay “retail” for. 4th course was warmed brie with ham “jam” in a little cast iron skillet, with toasted sourdough for spreading. Roy’s was uneven (3 waiters looking after our section, yet somehow my iced tea glass was empty more often than acceptable; food was oversalted, starting with the edamame and continuing into our entrees…pity); Arthur’s was very old school, but very well done; and Chamberlain’s was, sorry to say, a bit lacking in food quality, though service was excellent (best/most memorable thing we ate was the hot sourdough bread with industrial strength garlic butter). It was a pretty good Restaurant Week year!
