A Beefy Excursion To The YO Steakhouse

A  recent trip to the YO Steakhouse in the West End in Dallas netted some fantastic beefy finds on their latest menu that includes plenty of local veggies. They are now using beef from the coveted 44 Farms in Cameron, Texas. This is the same beef that Tesar is using at Knife as well as other restaurants in Dallas. The beef at 44 is super high end with amazing marbling for an incredible finish.

Chef-owner Tony Street comes from a proud heritage of restaurant owners who absolutely know what their customers are looking for, and it shows not on;y on the menu itself, but in the execution of each dish.

Some of the new dishes include the local hydroponic fried tomatoes with jumbo lump crab and a sriracha remoulade is totally unique, is Louie’s Venison Roll-Ups which are bacon wrapped venison, jalapeño, and smoked mozzarella, grilled and brushed with molasses Dijon. There are plenty of these to an order, and enough to share.    Continue reading

Eat Me: Pyramid’s Bone-In Rib Eye

DSC01491by Steven Doyle

Texas is beef country, and Dallas sits directly in the heart of all things steak related. We love our beef, and have plenty of options when it comes to dining on giant haunches of cattle. Recently we dined at the Pyramid Room located in the Fairmont and tackled the 32 ounce bone-in rib eye, which is anything but subtle. But table-side, the chef can make an easy mark on the steak and allow sharing so you can also enjoy other aspects of the new menu.

Check this out, and go eat one for yourself.    Continue reading

Discovery Zone: Mac and Cheese Burger at 303 Grill

DSC09649by Steven Doyle

We have written plenty of burger stories in the past, and have penned a few top burger lists for the Dallas area. It seems these lists are outdated as quickly as they are posted, but that is what make this whole thing fun. You never really find the ultimate burger, but rather journey through pastured beef and freshly baked buns. Face it, we are all simply beef tourists.

This past weekend I stumbled upon another incredible burger that at first horrified me, but after a large chomp I was convinced I found something uniquely delicious. The Mac and Cheese Burger at 303 Grill in Oak Cliff should be knighted, or at least given an MBE.    Continue reading

Give Dad The Gift Of Beef This Father’s Day

fiorentinaby Steven Doyle

Jimmy’s Food Store owner Paul DiCarlo wants beef for Father’s day. Not just any beef, but instead he wants to be flown to Tuscany for a Bistecca Fiorentina made by Dario Cecchini, ‘the Butcher of Panzano’. The DiCarlo sons won’t be flying their father to Tuscany this Sunday, but we have it on good authority that the boys will be grilling that very slab of beef here in Dallas for their dad.

A real Bistecca Fiorentina comes from an ancient Tuscan breed, the Chianina cow. It is one of the world’s largest breeds; tall and alabaster in color. The cow is generally used as a beast of burden due to its strength and stature, but the meat is prized for its succulent flavor.   Continue reading

Why You Should Order The Spinalis At SĒR Steak + Spirits

DSC05532by Steven Doyle

Last night I attended a little fete at one of my favorite steakhouses in Dallas, SĒR Steak + Spirits. If you read craveDFW very often you have seen our discussions on the type of beef (Wagyu) and the chef (the impressive young Anthony Van Camp). Sēr is tops our beef charts for a few reasons; the unpretentious wine list, the fantastic bar, and a breath-taking view of the city. Oh, then there is the food.

I suppose we should always keep our eye on the prize, and last night we blazed through a few incredible dishes, including some plump and briny Wellfleet’s and a beautiful charcuterie and cheese board. We also shared with our table an incredible plate of foie torchon. The torchon had a delightful cognac character that made the evening so very special and festive.  Continue reading

Lockhart Smokehouse Swims With The Fishes

by Steven Doyle

It’s no secret that Will Fleischman at Lockhart Smokehouse has an amazing beard, or that he is cranking out some kick-ass BBQ in Bishop Arts. He is legend for his brisket, ribs, and sausages. Mid-week Fleischman cranks out his Flintstone-sized behemoth beef ribs, and sometimes the man entertains us with his now legendary rib-jam. Not to mention the smoked and silky prime rib suitable for a fine Sunday dinner outing with the family.      Continue reading
