This popular destination for tourists and fishermen is about a 6-hour drive from Dallas and houses dozens of restaurants featuring fried fish, BBQ and burgers. Over the last few years, however, it’s become a town where chefs from all over have made their home and brought with them award-winning dishes and concepts that rise above the “fried seafood platter”. The area also hosts several food festivals each year such as “Coastal Flavors Weekend” and “Oysterfest”. So next time you find yourself as one of the lucky ones relaxing, fishing, swimming, or boating, head over to one of these gems and enjoy a fine meal and a glass or two of wine. Continue reading

Check Out The Establishment’s Food Porn

Interiorby Steven Doyle   photos by Joey Stewart

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 Friday Isn’t Just For Catholics

A COVER PHOTO FOR REPORTby Joey Stewart

Fish is an integral part of a healthy diet. While our good Catholic friends have a commanding reason to eat it today, so does everyone else. The FDA recommends that we each eat a minimum of 2-3 servings per week. You can knock out two of them today at lunch and dinner at these fine options here in Big D.   Continue reading

Masami Establishes Itself As One Of The Premiere Destinations In Dallas For Quality Japanese Cuisines

It’s like Ford vs. Chevy and Coke vs. Pepsi. Try to tell someone why your favorite sushi bar is better than theirs, and you are bound to enter into an argument just this side of Roe vs. Wade.

I began eating sushi 20 years ago when a friend took me to Royal Tokyo on upper Greenville. Legendary sushi chef Hiko-san turned me into an addict almost immediately. When it burned down and was forced to seek out a new favorite, I became a regular at a couple of Dallas’ darlings. Since then, I’ve resisted trying other sushi bars. Why get your drug of choice elsewhere when you are already getting the best?     Continue reading

TJ’s Collaborative Lionfish Dinner At Driftwood

Whole Lionfishby Joey Stewart

TJ’s Seafood and Driftwood held Dallas’ first ever Lionfish Dinner on Monday night, treating guests to five courses paired with wines. This invasive species, which is native to the Indo-Pacific, has found its way to the southeast coast of the U.S., Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico.

TJ’s owner and seafood guru, Jon Alexis, started off the evening informing diners of the issues surrounding the fish. “Lionfish have no predators, can lay up to 40 thousand eggs every three days, and eat anything and everything they can fit into their mouths. However we can become its predators. By eating them!”    Continue reading

White Truffles Have Arrived At Nonna

white truffleby Joey Stewart

Combine one of the best foods on the planet with one of the best restaurants in Dallas and what do you get? One of the best dishes in the city made by one of our best chefs.

Chef / Owner Julian Barsotti’s shipment of Northern Italian White Truffles arrived on Wednesday, and he wasted no time incorporating them into a rich, decadent dish of handmade, delicate pasta. His “Tagliolini with White Truffles” includes a sauce made from Fontina cheese, butter, milk, and egg yolks, along with a “red cow” parmigiano, or Parmigiano Vacche Rosse, which has a higher butterfat content than the typical white or black coated breed. At 36 bucks, the price stings a bit, but so many establishments in Dallas price their best dish at $45 and above that it doesn’t feel unreasonable. Especially since you get a full 3 ounces 3 grams of the shaved fungus on each plate. Get it while you can.    Continue reading
