Here is your chance to hear from some of the most prominent Hollywood writers, producers, directors, creators and film makers in the industry.

While researching new restaurant listings in the Dallas-Fort Worth area I noticed that another chapter of the Texas buffet Zorro’s was opening in Hurst. This might not be typical fodder for the average craveDFW reader, but since George Hamilton is in Dallas through April 22 while on tour with La Cage Aux Folles, I thought it might be befitting that the star of the riotous film Zorro the Gay Blade check out the small restaurant chain known for daily buffet sirloin steaks.

As the Easter holiday approaches we are reminded about renewal of the planet, fresh Spring daisies and bluebonnets, little baby chicks and bouncy bunny rabbits. It is also a refreshing time for new restaurant menus as they roll out seasonal dishes to reflect the new found bounty. We are now seeing ramps, morels and even fiddlehead ferns grace our plates.

We also enjoy the deviled eggs at Nick and Sams where there are three versions on the same platter, but particularly enjoy the caviar topped eggs. Neighborhood Services also makes a mean egg as well.

Yesterday we discussed the goings on at Bailey’s Prime Plus. This is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Dallas, and I predict with the new changes it will improve to a level that it may be difficult to score a seat in prime time. Besides the physical beauty and interesting menu, one of the best features can be found in its sommelier, Jennifer Jaco.
Jaco is one of the new generation sommeliers that will speak in simple terms (or geek-speak if you so desire) about the wines you drink while dining with her. It has been her personal mission since joining the Bailey’s staff to improve the list and bring interesting by-the-glass choices at easy price points. She also scours the city’s reserves to find that might have been thought unavailable and snags them for our pleasure. I sat with Jaco in the past and witnessed her blind-tasting ability, and the woman is uncanny. Continue reading
