Admittedly, we miss Samar and that glorious, glorious naan served with three different dipping mechanisms. (Still dream about it, sometimes.) Stephan Pyles, though, has already moved on with his newest restaurant venture, San Salvaje, at 2100 Ross Avenue. He says it’ll be open sometime next week. Probably Thursday, May 1. The interior’s not finished yet, but that didn’t stop the Southwestern chef from hosting a media lunch today, which we were invited to join.Full Story
Friends, it’s happening.

I’m a big fan of Jessica Jones, the managing editor of D Home/D Weddings. What a crafty lady. She made these beautiful edible Easter egg nests (pictured above) that are surprisingly easy to accomplish. Just five ingredients (including chow mein noodles) and BOOM, you’re done.

I once watched a Freaky Eaters episode of a 20-something man addicted to pizza. Bread, cheese, and tomato sauce was all he’d eat. No veggies, no nothing. His health suffered, his personal life went down the drain, and he was throwing up some weird gunk every morning.
I finished watching that episode and wanted to eat pizza immediately.
Here’s the thing: You can’t hate pizza. There are all sorts of pizzas, so it’s impossible to dislike. Hate Cane Rosso’s? Go to Zoli’s. Want to dine in? No. Fine. Do take out. Or better yet, sit on your couch and watch the Mavs lose by one point and drop to the eighth seed, while you order a 16-incher and swallow your woes with gobfuls of cheese.
That’s the way we do it here in the Big D. We order for delivery.Full Story

My friend and co-worker Raya has been bugging me about a sparkling wine taste test for ages.
This week, after battling my desire to do bubble tea, I finally caved in.
Unfortunately, the only Texas winery I know that makes sparkling wine is completely out of stock. Maybe next year, McPherson Cellars. Maybe next year.
Cristina Daglas, our editor, hates hot sandwiches with deli meat in them. (Nancy wrote about this last week in her post, “Let’s Talk about Bizarre Food Aversions!”)
I think she’s cuckoo.Full Story
Happy hour. Sushi. Sake.
My three favorite words in the English and Japanese languages.Full Story
Some people say the best fried bird in Dallas is Babe’s. Others say Pecan Lodge. I’m personally a big fan of Sissy’s and Rudy’s Chicken. (It’s impossible not to love a place with the tagline: “So good you’ll slap yo mammas mama.” Am I right?)
If you don’t agree, do something about it. Flap your wings, make your voice heard, and cast your vote.Full Story
When Jonn Baudoin and Omar Flores decided to open a little seafood restaurant in Oak Cliff, their partnership, as Todd Johnson describes it, went “swimmingly.” In 2012, Driftwood became an instant hit. And it’s been one of the best restaurants in Dallas ever since.
Now Baudoin has decided to sell his portion of Driftwood’s ownership to co-partner Sal Jafar II.Full Story
