Pecan Lodge Moving To Deep Ellum

brewbq2by Steven Doyle

I had a pretty good conversation with Justin Fourton, co-owner and BBQ Magistrate at Pecan Lodge,  last week at the conclusion of Meat Fight. We discussed the possibility of Pecan Lodge moving out of its current location at the Dallas Farmers Market. He asked where I thought he was moving to and I said good money was riding on Deep Ellum. He confirmed off the record, and said that it made the most sense. He wanted a venue where he could host large parties and do more with the brand that just shovel out delicious BBQ.

Today we were sent a release from Diane Fourton (Boss Lady), and the cat is now officially out of the bag. Deep Ellum is indeed where Pecan Lodge will move to, making that section of Dallas even stronger. Don’t forget, these guys also make some of the best fried chicken in the state.  Continue reading

Two Hot Dallas Burgers Being Delivered To Lakewood

libertyby Steven Doyle    photo by Robert Bostick

As the Lakewood community continues its growth a few new and familiar Dallas area restaurants have staked claim on some highly visible real estate. Interesting enough the new restaurants are being careful to keep things interesting enough for the neighborhood, and even giving the new spots a warm enough feel that will give an impression that the restaurants have always belonged to their new digs.

There are two particular burger outlets that will give pause to the local fan. Liberty Burger should be open very soon and co-owner Mariel Street is staying clear of any semblance of being a chain. Even though there are currently only two of the burger restaurants, we know there are plenty on the way including the Dallas Farmers Market.   Continue reading

Friends of Dallas Farmers Market Hoedown Lowdown

by Steven Doyle

Last night I checked out the Friends of the Dallas Farmers Market Hoedown which took place at the Food and Fiber Building at Fairgrounds. The evening is an annual event to raise awareness and funds for the Dallas Farmers Market. The friends are a group of local people that take great interest in supporting the market and use the money raised throughout the year to take care of needs that go unfinished by the city due to budget restraints.

One of the city’s outspoken leaders for many projects in the city, Ida Paper, set her sights on the farmers market and was a founding member of the Friends. It was Ida, along with cheese-making pal Paula Lambert, who began the chef classes at the market. She recruited Jim Severson who for many years lined up the talent for each of the classes. These classes helped the Friends turn a profit and brought in folds of interested people to the market each week.    Continue reading
