Perry’s Steakhouse announced today that it is opening a new location at Stonebriar Centre on Preston Road and SH 121 in Frisco. The new restaurant will accommodate 350 guests and include design features such as a towering wine wall, four private dining rooms, an island bar, main dining with glimpses of the kitchen, and an outdoor patio.
Famous for its selection of butcher-fresh Prime beef, Perry’s is also known for its unexpected steakhouse specialty – Perry’s Famous Pork Chop, a seven-finger tall chop that is dried, cured and roasted, then caramelized and topped with Perry’s signature herb-garlic butter. Perry’s is also home to Bar 79, which offers Social Hour featuring specially priced bar menu items, wines and martinis weekdays from 4-6:30 p.m. and Sundays from 4-9 p.m. Continue reading

As the Easter holiday approaches we are reminded about renewal of the planet, fresh Spring daisies and bluebonnets, little baby chicks and bouncy bunny rabbits. It is also a refreshing time for new restaurant menus as they roll out seasonal dishes to reflect the new found bounty. We are now seeing ramps, morels and even fiddlehead ferns gracing our plates. This is a fantastic time of year.
We would love to make a list of our favorite deviled eggs, which are everywhere now and a definite taste we want at Easter. You will see a new version daily at Parigi on Oak Lawn. We also enjoy the deviled eggs at Nick and Sams where there are three versions on the same platter, but particularly enjoy the caviar topped eggs. We adore Sissy’s version as well. Continue reading

Loosen your belt and live vicariously through Joey’s mouth. Please note that all these beautiful plates are only $10, and the oysters chime in at a low $2 each. Continue reading

It seems every time I go to 303 Grill in Oak Cliff they have a new burger waiting for me to try. They sincerely go out of their way to discover new burger craziness that performs as a symphony in your mouth. The latest burger is no exception. Behold: the Cuban Burger.
Think kicked up Cuban sandwich with burger fixings, that just happened to get lost in a bacon factory. The Cuban Burger is a typical 303 burger with slices of ham and a bacon cup filled with pulled pork. Bacon cup. Filled with pulled pork. And of course there is always a side of those hand cut fries.
