Cool Deal On Some Cool Lobster This Weekend At Sea Breeze

Maine-lobsterby Jennifer Thomas

Any time the temperature tops 100 degrees, I like to pretend I’m somewhere else.  Like really  far away.  But this year, a trip to the Hamptons is out of the question.  But Plano-based Sea Breeze Fish Market & Grill is offering the next best thing.  This Sunday, June 30, Sea Breeze is hosting a New England style Lobster Bake.  Continue reading

sea breezeBy Steven Doyle

Rick Oruch at Sea Breeze Fish Market & Grill sends word that he received his first wild Alaskan Halibut of the season – days ahead of the rest of the market. Sometimes it’s all about connections I suppose. Rick and the team just cut into this big boy .. They have it in the fish market for $32.99/lb, and should have Halibut and chips on the menu for $21.99 by tonight. Sea Breeze is our go to Seafood Market in Plano, and they always have a nice selection plus some tasty fare on the menu.

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

TJ’s Goes French For A Night

10 Jon starts off the night with a lovely Pepiere Muscadetby Joey Stewart

Ever since opening his Oak Lawn location in 2012, TJ’s Fresh Seafood Market has been hosting specialty dinners that feature seafood prepared in worldly ways and paired with wines of that region. Tuesday evening owner and purveyor Jon Alexis threw a French Style seven-course dinner to an excited and eager full house.

For each course Jon described the wine pairing, while Executive Chef Scott Hoffner discussed the ingredients and execution of the dish.  A main supplier of TJ’s, whose Red Grouper was featured in the 3rd course, was on site to tell the diners how Jon decides what fish to select (Jon can be quite picky), the state of sustainability in our oceans today, and the unique fish that often get thrown away in the U.S. while it is considered a delicacy (and pricey!) overseas.  Continue reading

Back Away From The Tex-Mex At Lazaranda

lazarandaby Robyn Folmar

I’ve stated before that Texans like their Tex-Mex two ways, orange & brown. We will eat a slab of beef for breakfast and wrap anything in a tortilla and call it a meal. However, this leads to some problems when you are a bona fide Mexican restaurant and want to serve… seafood.

People get confused, agitated. “Where are the fajitas?” “I don’t understand why this rice is white.” “Can you fry this?”  Continue reading
