I can only envision how chef Brian C. Luscher sees the world. I am sure it is bacon lined, sausage filled, and burger-fied. This is a good thing. The man sticks with what he does best, and that is to bring a slice of Chicago to the good people of Dallas, Texas. He makes simply the very best hot dog in the state, and has a few updated tricks up his sleeve at his new restaurant, Luscher’s Red Hots located in Deep Ellum. The amount of media coverage has been so overwhelming that he apologized to his fans on Facebook. No apology necessary. Just keep doing what you do best, chef. Continue reading

A Dallas institution for nearly three decades, Lucky’s has been a go-to spot for both classic diner fare and breakfast favorites. Now, the restaurant is testing a substantial change in its menu, by incorporating local and regional farm offerings.
The menu update has been a collaboration project between newly appointed Lucky’s chef Adrianna London and Chef Billy Caruso, the Executive Chef at III Forks in Chicago. London comes to Lucky’s with a long history with Consolidated Restaurant Operations, Inc., the parent company for Lucky’s. She started with the company in 1989 at El Chico, and later traveled internationally to train cooks for the company in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Cairo and across the US. The collaboration with Caruso is particularly fitting, as the CIA alum had been tapped by the noted 24Diner in Austin to formulate its farm to table menu. Continue reading

It is most assuredly known that Blind Butcher is one of our top favorite pubs in Dallas, with a massive choice of taps, cocktails, decent wines and the best bar food in the city.
Executive chef Oliver Sitrin has created a menu that will change often, depending on what is in season and available, and use as many local ingredients as possible. Sitrin says, “I have an old-school view on things. The flavors in my dishes are not to be confused, and I don’t believe in waste. I try to not over think or over do it. I grew up eating these things and playing around with their ingredients – pate, hand-cranked sausages and charcuterie. It’s fun and creative food that pairs well with our cocktails, beer and wine.” Continue reading
