Fork Fight is a bracket-style battle between the soon-to-open restaurteurs in Trinity Groves, ten in all. The first few battles were meaty and furious, with tight but decisive victors who have moved up the line for a future competition. The last two Fork Fight battles were sold out, and the next fight will sell out very soon.
This Thursday a new battle is being waged between LUCK and Resto Gastro Pub. The evening begins at 7pm at 3015 in Trinity Groves and will feature beer, wine and cocktails, along with four courses times two for a total of eight dishes that you will sample in order to judge who moves up in the bracket challenge.
We just received an exclusive notice on a menu change and a highlight of the beverages that will be served that evening. Get your credit cards handy, you will want to buy a few of these seats. Continue reading
Another edition of Trinity Grove’s Fork Fight battle is under our belts, all eight courses of it. Last night 282 hungry fans showed for a taste of the fun and witness the action between chefs Uno Immanivong (Chino Chinatown) and Norman Grim (Kitchen LTO). Both of the restaurants will open soon and if the crowd count is any indication, both will be wildly successful.
The evening started with a few fresh cocktails from Chino partner Adrian Verdin. One was a Latin play on a classic Sazarac using mescal and infused with chocolate. These were powerfully delicious and a perfect way to begin the night. Continue reading

More news from the folks at Trinity Groves, and this time there is competition in the air. Look for an NCAA bracket-style throw-down between all the restaurants starting July 11 (tentative), and continue each week until the last restaurant standing will face off Sharon Van Meter, owner and chef at 3015. The competition is called the Fork Fight Battle.
The events are still being finalized, but the group should meet each Thursday with a head-to-head competition that includes cocktails, and a wine paired four course meal from each restaurant. Continue reading
This weekend we checked out the Trinity Groves area just beyond the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in West Dallas to find construction proceeding towards opening. Many of the new shops and restaurants were slated to open early summer, but instead will be delayed until September. This will give newly signed tenants a chance to work through their construction without interference. Once the building is complete the businesses will begin opening on a staggered schedule.
The main pavilion has been accounted for with much of the front facing spaces that overlook Singleton will be restaurants, while the north side facing the 3015 facility are a majority of retail space.
A walk through on Sunday revealed more information on what we might expect starting this September. Continue reading
Last weekend we were invited to stop in and enjoy the festivities at 3015 in Trinity Groves where chef Uno Immanivong and her cocktailing biz partner Adrian Verdin hosted an evening that previewed and highlighted the menu from Chino Chinatown, their Asian-Latin fusion restaurant that should be rolling out in August 2013.
Guests were delighted by the marvelous service, and colorful and flavor-packed dishes prepared by Uno and her pop-up staff. The beautiful “pho”zole was single handedly an enormous hit, and how could she miss with her bone marrow broth, braised oxtail and hominy for a true fusion win. The flavors meld together so wonderfully. Continue reading
