First Look: Clark Food & Wine Company

DSC05158by Steven Doyle

What happens when you combine a five star chef with one of the funky new spaces on lower Greenville? The child would definitely be called Clark Food and Wine Company, and the chef giving birth would certainly be Randall Warder. Chef Warder has an auspicious resume, working with the Dean Fearing regime at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek as executive sous chef for nine years, and more recently as chief concept officer at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.

The cuisine at Clark is more tapas-style, but hearty and more giving than any shared menu in the city. In addition to the shared plates, you will find a great selection of flatbreads, artisan sandwiches and smoked meats. This is definitely how we are enjoying our meals these days. It is a far more interesting date to enjoy a smattering of foods, chef-driven cocktails and a well appointed wine and beer menu with friends and family. Continue reading

With all the heartache of selecting which can stand alone as the very best, we humbly submit in no particular order sandwiches that we enjoy. Tell us your favorites and we will run out today and sample one. Continue reading

First Look: Henry’s Majestic Opens Tomorrow, Oct 21st

henry'sby Steven Doyle

Henry’s Majestic has a funny, quirky name, but starting tomorrow guests will enjoy some serious eats and drinks from this new restaurant that will be cheffed and managed by Roe DiLeo. This New Jersey native created a name for herself locally as the chef at The Libertine Bar and was most recently at Boulevardier in Bishop Arts, and also is currently appearing as a contestant on TV’s Hell’s Kitchen.

The rustic interior gives off a relaxing feel, much like it has in its past incarnations at 4900 McKinney Avenue. But this is a fresh start for the building with some pretty amazing talent that has been assembled to operate the restaurant including Alex Fletcher who is managing the bar program. Fletcher is a recognizable name on the Dallas craft cocktail scene and his work at Victor Tango’s earned him the reputation as one of the best bartenders in Dallas. Fletcher also crafted his skills at The People’s Last Stand.

Just sample his Headless Manhattan made up of pumpkin infused whiskey, amaro, bitters and pumpkin seed. You will be convinced. Fletcher also offers a very well rounded brew selection.
