Some Good News From Goodfriend

stephanieby Steven Doyle

It has been nearly two years since Josh Yingling and Matt Tobin (Goodfriend, Blind Butcher) announced that they would open a package store across the street from Goodfriend. The new store would carry cool beers, and offer prepared food. The nameless shop would be located in the laundromat.

The few months it would take to open obviously took much longer due to the City of Dallas, and a large reel of red tape.    Continue reading

Bunnies And Springtime Refresh The Plate

DSC01110by Steven Doyle

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 gracing our plates. This is a fantastic time of year.

We would love to make a list of our favorite deviled eggs, which are everywhere now and a definite taste we want at Easter.  You will see a new version daily at Parigi on Oak Lawn. 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.  We adore Sissy’s version as well.     Continue reading

Check Out The Establishment’s Food Porn

For more than two years there was a promise for the space at 4513 Travis, formerly Trece. The Establishment opened just over one month ago, and since there has been mention of a dozen types of oysters, our friend and photographer Joey Stewart happily volunteered to buzz in a few times to check out the new menu. Loosen your belt and live vicariously through Joey’s mouth. Please note that all these beautiful plates are only $10, and the oysters chime in at a low $2 each.  Continue reading

Seafood Shack For Lent

seafood-shack1by Steven Doyle

I am not Catholic or Lutheran so I do not fully grasp the whole Lent concept. I know from an outsider’s point of view that there is some fasting and penance going on, so that would pretty much leave me out of that whole business. There is also  something called Joyous Saturday, but aren’t all Saturdays joyous? Mine certainly are.

Then we have all these pre-Lenten activities which is an opportunity for excess. This makes the whole season seem much more appetizing for those of us on the outside of things. Mardi Gras could create converts, to be sure.

Catholics over the age of 14 are required to abstain from meat and from food made with meat. With that, this is the busiest time of year for our local fishmongers.    Continue reading
