Eat Me: Quail “Wings” at Bowl and Barrel

quailby Steven Doyle

Chicken wings will always be all the rage in bars because they are so easy to make as they are to eat. Flavor delivered on its own natural stick, if you will. Somewhere there are a ton of quail scurrying about without the use of their legs, and we are all the better for it. These are very meaty and spicy specimens found at Bowl and BarrelContinue reading

What do you do when you have a super cool kicked up bowling alley which turns one today? You celebrate with some delicious cocktails. Stop by Bowl and Barrel today for some tasty fun including $1 Franconia Drafts,
$1 Barrel-Aged Manhattans, $1 Hot Dogs, and at 9:30pm they break out the Birthday Cake. What better way to ease back into work mode after a four day holiday turkey romp.

Bowlounge Open in Design District

A new bowling alley/ restaurant opened in the Design District. Bowlounge is located at 167 Turtle Creek Blvd, giving you an additional reason to frequent that burgeoning side of Dallas. The new business has been in the works for quite some time now, but has finally come to fruition. The restaurant portion of the bowling alley is not complete, so it is just bowling and booze for now.

Unlike counterparts popping up in Dallas, Bowlounge is considered a ‘retro blue collar’ hangout.  Continue reading

Review: Bowl And Barrel

dsc04315by Steven Doyle

What an exciting time to enjoy to be living in Dallas. There are so many cultural advances and unique restaurants popping up across Dallas and Fort Worth. Bowl and Barrel is certainly one of the more unique restaurants to hit Dallas running. While the food is not exactly haute cuisine, it is fun, brave and unique due mainly to the chef who crafted the menu, Sharon Hage. We are fortunate to have her brilliant talent seeding these new restaurants with her very special touch.

Bowl and Barrel is the bowling alley with terrific food in a separate restaurant area and features the largest community dining  table  I have seen in Dallas. On a recent visit a guest explained that she was new to the Dallas area and came to Bowl and Barrel not knowing anyone, and left with a handful of friends that she met up with nights later. This is the power of dining with strangers. For those wanting a more private setting there are plenty of seats available in the more traditional sense.    Continue reading

Q&A With Bowl and Barrel’s Owner Kyle Noonan

DSC04336by Steven Doyle

Bowl and Barrel opened wide this past week and has already enjoyed a bit of success. The new restaurant implements a small bowling alley to combine the owners love for food and recreation. This fantastic concept is tucked away in a massive space to the rear of The Shops at Park Lane in North Dallas. Conceived and operated by Josh Sepkowitz and Kyle Noonan, both SMU grads, they decided to leave their steady 9 to 5’s to venture into the world of restaurant management.

The team has already experienced some success with many corporate holiday parties booked, the future for Bowl and Barrel seems bright. The pair have also taken duties at the newly re-opened Sunset Lounge on ross Avenue in Dallas as operating managers. Look for a few new concepts that they have rolling around in their heads, but for now enjoy the 15 world class lanes and the restaurant chef-imagined by Sharon Hage.

For more a more in-depth look at Bowl and Barrel jump further for this week’s Q&A where we sat with Kyle Noonan over a few pretty special hot dogs and cold beer.    Continue reading
