Swim Into Sea Breeze For A Fantastic Seafood Selection

DSC05797by Steven Doyle

The seafood revolution in Dallas continues strong and we are particularly happy to see this strong trend continue to grow. With more restaurants sourcing amazing oysters from all coastal waters in the US, the selection has never been greater. Many restaurants can serve up fish selections like tilapia and salmon, but these can be the most uninteresting selections when so much more is being brought into our city.

One of the bright stars in this trend is Sea Breeze in Plano. What started as a small market and an even smaller restaurant with counter service, Sea Breeze recently expanded to a full-sized concern with table service and even more room for fresh fish to take home.   Continue reading

In preparation over 70 coconuts lost their tops, making these the perfect vessels for cooling tropical cocktails prepared by lead barman Sean Conner.

Conner wrangled Barcardi’s 151 into drinks such as classic Zombies that made the gathering revelers not only smile, but put them in the island mood.       Continue reading

Sip And Savor For Plenty Of Flavor

New Spring Menu at Seasons 52

by Steven Doyle

Seasons 52 is known for their bright and low fat cookery. As bikini season fast approaches this can be a good thing. But how do you cook without copious amounts of butter? Evidently quite well based on the new menu that rolled out last evening. We were invited to stop in and sample some of the new fare that is rolling out as part of Season’s new Spring menu, and found much of this fresh approach packed with flavor.      Continue reading
