Fat Rabbitby Steven Doyle

Driving through Uptown last evening we finally spotted progress at 2533 McKinney Avenue, or the former home to Sfuzzi. The new restaurant and bar  will be called Fat Rabbit. This name was no doubt generated by the same machine that thought up Velvet Taco. Stay tuned for more information.

The Ivy Tavern soft opened a week ago, with the grand opening this past Saturday. Owned and operated by Lisa and Tom Georgalis, former owners of Inwood Tavern, can usually be found waling the tavern and the bodacious patio area which is decorated with a firepit, picnic tables and a variety of entertaining games such as man-sized Jingo blocks and darts.

Eat Me: Bolsa’s Baby Artichoke & Goat Cheese Gnocchi

It is almost that time of year when we all think of bikini’s, beach and sun. The weather is starting to be a more consistent breeze with a splash fun, and many are turning to lighter fare. Most restaurants now have at least a vegetarian option, and almost all can do a vegan plate of some sort. The truly interesting restaurants can make either of these options a delight even for the most committed omnivore. Bolsa succeeds at the latter.

Look no further than the Baby Artichoke & Goat Cheese Gnocchi which is served with heirloom tomatoes, spinach and a  tomato-mint sauce. This dish is amazingly light and refreshing – and addictive. Pair this with one of their wonderful signature cocktails, and you will have a meal that transcends nature itself.    Continue reading

2014-02-06 13.32.35by Steven Doyle   photos by Robert Bostick

For the past month we have been fielding rumors that Club Schmitz would be closing this summer. In a panic we sent ace photographer Robert Bostick out for a photo shoot a few weeks ago. We both have been getting mixed stories, so we chose not to run with anything at that time. Today, Robert Wilonsky at the Dallas Morning News came up with his version of the story that points to a large possibility that Schmitz has seen its final year.     Continue reading
