If you are a regular reader of craveDFW you know that we are super fans of TJ’s Seafood Market located on Preston at Forest Lane, and the new location on Oak Lawn Across from Al Biernat’s restaurant. The reason is simple, the proprietor Jon Alexis flies his seafood in every day, all day. He buys in quantities that sell quickly so nothing remains each day. We liked our beef aged, but not our snapper.
Alexis has teamed up with the boys at Veritas Wine Room (located on Henderson in Dallas) the third Sunday of each month to provide a lobster bake that includes a whole lobster, potatoes, corn, clams, mussels, sausage, etc. for $30. That shindig starts at 5:30 on the third Sunday of each month. There are plenty f great beers or wines t pair this dinner up with, so don’t miss that. But wait, there is a mega dinner planned or this weekend… Continue reading

The fish taco is one of the more elusive bites around the DFW area. TJ’s Seafood Market on Oak Lawn makes one of the better versions, and now there is something to celebrate. TJ’s recently announced a half price taco happy hour from 3 to 5pm each day, excluding Saturdays. You can always find a tilapia version, but there are also rotating tacos like monkfish, cobia, triggerfish and halibut to name a few.
Check out the soft shell crab tacos. These will definitely make you happy. 1/2 Price Fish Tacos Happy Hour, 3-5pm. Beat the heat with a cold beer and 50% off fish tacos.

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.

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.

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
