We visited Ida Claire this week, which just opened recently in their beautiful location in Addison, and we will share our first look in tomorrow’s edition of craveDFW. But we are still ecstatic about the desserts prepared by corporate pastry chef Sarah Lewis.

Chef Lewis prepares all the pastries for the company that owns such restaurants as Whiskey Cake, Mexican Sugar, The Ranch in Las Colinas and even Velvet Taco.  Ever had that Red Velvet cake at Velvet Taco? That is a Lewis cake.   Continue reading

I was the very first customer at Al’s Italian Beef when it opened in February. First bite of the true Chicago dreams to get that taste in their mouths again from back home right in their backyards here in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Al’s Italian beef proved to Texas how many Chicagoans miss their favorites when they ran out of food the very first week in February. Folks coming in from all over the metroplex and buying everything they could, cooked or not, I was told. They just bought all the tamales right from the freezer.   Continue reading
