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

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

Del Frisco is definitely a Dallas institution and they have been on our radar since the playful sommelier Jennifer Jaco started working there just over one month ago. But before Jaco’s arrival we alwayed enjoyed chatting with chef David Holben who’s home kitchen is the Dallas location on Spring Valley.
Holben has come up with a summer promotion that should bring most beef lovers into the restaurant and it is a steal. They call this the Power Couple menu and there are more than a few great choices in sides and such, but always includes a filet and crab cake. For $99. Continue reading

Starting today and extending through the month of April, Sullivan’s Steakhouse will be running a Steak and Cake special where you can get an 8 oz. filet, a 4 oz. crab cake and either a wedge or Caesar salad, all for $39. I was invited to come check this out.
Sullivan’s is more like 3 different establishments under one roof: a bar/patio, a dining room and a lounge called Ringside. I showed up a bit early so I could get a feel for the restaurant and the bar was popping. Their signature cocktail is the Knockout, a martini made from Smirnoff Orange Vodka infused with fresh pineapple with an orange twist. I was worried that it would be too sweet but it tasted exactly like fresh cut pineapple with a punch. This will go great sitting out on the patio, listening to the live music. But I am here for the food. Continue reading
