New bar and grill alert for those living in uptown Dallas. Soon the weight of half pound cheeseburgers will send the uptown properties into a spiraling sinkhole as the bars nearly outnumber the residents. It’s all good, we enjoy the vast selection and know that the cream always rises to the top in a survival of the fittest sort of way.
The new restaurant is called 6th Street Bar and Grill and is located at 3005 Routh Street in the former Manhattan Pizza location. Continue reading

Primebar has been calling my name ever since I checked out their brunch last month. The modern Ale House offers 40 taps including plenty of local brews. The sales monkey at Deep Ellum Brewsky’s needs to call on these guys for sure.
The menu is diverse and includes small plates such as deviled eggs and BBQ chicken flatbread to entrees that include items such as horseradish-crusted salmon, beer-battered fish and chips, pork tacos and the fried egg burger. Eggs on anything is super hot right now and for a good reason. Continue reading

A graduate of California Culinary Academy in San Francisco, chef Dan Landsberg first moved to Dallas in 1996 when we was sent to open Fog City Diner, the stand-out building where Truluck’s now operates from.

There was a pub crawl, and there was a birthday boy and there was a street called McKinney in a neighborhood called Uptown. It was the end of the world… and I was dancing with Sally Bowles and we were both asleep…
To the two people who got that reference: Facebook me because we will be the best of friends. Translation: I wore my new cowboy boots, spent most of the day drinking domestic beer, I rode a mechanical bull, and we ended up… well, you guess.
What more is there to say, really? For all participants it was a blast. For a new Texan it was quite the experience. That I wasn’t bundled in three layers with snow boots spending my Saturday afternoon at a Laundromat in Queens was a plus. Continue reading

As the famous lyrics from Queen’s “I Want to Ride My Bicycle” play in my head, I recall this past sunny day Saturday when I strolled the West Village streets looking for the promised flash mob of bicyclers. I was sorely disappointed at its absence but quickly charmed back to my jolly mood after chatting with the two head bikers from Dallas Cycle Style, sisters Tracy and Amanda Popken. Continue reading
