Soon to Open 18th & Vine BBQ Partner with Chef Scott Gottlich

scott

Husband and wife duo Matt and Kimi Dallman announce a partnership with acclaimed chef, Scott Gottlich for 18th & Vine BBQ.  The Kansas City barbeque full-service restaurant and bar will open this fall 2015 at 4100 Maple Avenue in Dallas across from Crow Holdings’ Old Parkland business offices.

During the 1930’s and 40’s, the cross streets of 18th & Vine was the heart of the Kansas City jazz district and barbeque. Historically, Kansas City provided the perfect culinary melting pot for barbeque, bringing together Texas beef and Southern Pork through the railroads and stockyards. Pit master Matt Dallman explains, “Barbeque, cooked low-and-slow became the perfect entrée of choice for all-night jam sessions.” He grew up in Kansas City with a deep love and appreciation of barbeque.   Continue reading

I Like Pie: Key Lime at Rex’s Seafood

rex'sby Steven Doyle

A recent visit to Rex’s netted us some pretty wonderful seafood dishes, great wines and one of our favorite pies, the slightly sweet, tart and creamy key lime.

The big specials at Rex’s are the lobster roll on Friday’s and the lobster club sandwich on Saturday.  Currently you may take advantage of the salmon that is swimming in from Alaska, and one of the many offerings such as a crab topped redfish with a beurre blanc, or the meaty swordfish that is served simply with sea salt and pepper.   Continue reading

Best Restaurants For Fried Chicken In Dallas

chickenby Steven Doyle

We love our fried chicken, and have been seeking out the very best Dallas has to offer. We scoured the streets and found some with an ethnic twist, others are straight forward crispy fried and juicy.

We had to eliminate a few that didn’t qualify as traditional, such as Bon Mua’s fried Cornish hen, which is still worth making the drive to Carrollton.  In making our list we were shocked at how many plates of fried chicken we had sampled over the past months. Col Sanders would have said he was too drunk to taste that chicken after just a few of these places.

A Visit to Little Katana

DSC00064by Steven Doyle

Nestled on the corner Travis and Knox, Little Katana quietly serves up sushi and Korean dishes to neighborhood patrons who pack the house all through the week. Monday is the perfect day to acquaint yourself with this little gem as it is half price sushi rolls and bottles of wine and sake. For the uninitiated, you may wish to start your dinner with the sampler platter which includes Crab Tempura, Seared Ahi Tuna, Shrimp and Lump Crab Cake and Coconut Shrimp Tempura served with an Asian Slaw.

You may have also heard the name Little Katana bandied about with regards to the new addition of restaurants at Dallas Omni downtown. Let us chat about this little sushi wonder for a bit:

Particularly enjoyable on the appetizer side of the menu are several hot rocks where the guest becomes the cook, sizzling bits of Kobe steak or thin slices of Maine lobster. Both are served with a spread of delicious sauces.  Other apps you may wish to check out are the Shumai which are steamed and packed with flavor. Often you will find these dumplings rubbery, but Katana’s version are soft and supple.    Continue reading

In the past year with the new menus introduced by chef Cody Sharp dining at this now famous Dallas bar has reached heights unknown to any bar in town, and certainly rivals that of most restaurants.    Continue reading
