Last evening a community gathered at 3015 in Trinity Groves in support of a local chef,Ulysses Galvan. Galvan is suffering from the affects of leukemia and currently awaiting a bone marrow transplant. The event last evening was held to help defray costs not covered by the chef’s insurance policy. Stepping in to orchestrate and plan were the owners of Fluent, a local concierge service and lifestyle management company in Dallas, Lisa Moore and Jack Son, along with Galvan’s employer and long time friend, chef Katherine Clapner of Dude, Sweet Chocolate.

Snuffer’s New Bacon-Guacamole Burger
by Andrew Chalk
Some restaurants cease being restaurants and transform into institutions. Snuffer’s, established in 1978 (that’s a year after the release of the Apple II, and concurrent with some pretty gruesome hair styles) has as much of a case as anywhere in Dallas to have made that transition.

It is here Galvan plies her talents with some perked up Tex-Mex fare. Lunada features a full bar that boasts some pretty stout margaritas, as well as beer and wine.

Henderson Tap House opened for business last night, serving up a huge menu in a very tiny space of a kitchen. That kitchen inherited a super nice wood burning oven, so the pizzas come out bubbly hot and crisp. There is a large variety of soups, sandwiches and salads, as well as a pretty spectacular prime rib and potato nacho dish that has shaved prime rib, housemade potato chips, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, and bleu cheese crumbles.
The 7,000-square-foot space houses two large bars mirroring each other and serving 24 draft beers, more than 50 bottled beers including craft selections and tall boys in paper bags, and an impressive selection of spirits with an emphasis on exceptional whiskey and bourbon. Continue reading
