Far removed from the hot Texas days when we would bust out the sprinkler, or walk to the local creek-side watering hole to cool off, which usually ended with a cold Popsicle treat.

Chef Brian Zenner has opened another bar/restaurant in what will be a string of casual concepts in and around the downtown Dallas area. On Premise opened in Deep Ellum this week in the former Lemongrass location at 2711 Elm. Zenner hired his former Oak sous chef, Ann Marie Romero, as the On Premise executive chef. Romero also worked with Zenner at the Mansion on Turtle Creek.

Drawing inspiration from Belgian and local mythologies, Lakewood Brewing Company every so often releases another limited batch brew in its ever-popular Legendary Series. On June 1, Lakewood will introduce its sixth release in the series, a very personal creation by Lakewood’s founder Wim Bens, that pays homage to the Belgian legend of Saint Dymphna expressed through the sweet, complex characteristic of a Belgian-style Tripel brewed with linden flowers.
Saint Dymphna will be featured on tap at the Lakewood Taproom during taproom hours beginning on Saturday, May 30. Come by and taste the goodness before it hits the market. Beginning June 1, the beer will be available on draft at local bars and restaurants across DFW and in 22 ounce bottles in retail stores that carry Lakewood beers. Continue reading
