burger 303by Steven Doyle

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.

And of course there is always a side of those hand cut fries.   Continue reading

boulevardier1by Steven Doyle

One of our very favorite brunch spots is in Bishop Arts. Now you can enjoy Boulevardier’s brunch on Saturday, too. It is difficult finding a decent Saturday brunch in Dallas, one that is not just a lunch menu with mimosas.

After viewing this photo of today’s beef ribs at Lockhart, unless you are infirm or out of state, there is simply no decent reason not to join them for lunch today. I chewed half way through my USB cable lusting after this one.

Brew Riot 2013 Video Recap

DSC07836The 2013 version of Brew Riot was held once again in the Bishop Arts District in Oak Cliff. This is where over 60 home brewers gather and sample out their finest.

We splashed our way through the event, and enjoyed some pretty terrific beers. Several of the home brewers will be announcing that they will join the ranks of nearly 20 breweries that opened in North Texas within the past few years.   Continue reading
