It’s A Bad Week To Be A Reality Chef And A Critic

Pepinby Steven Doyle

This might be a bad week to be a chef, or a chef’s critic, depending on which side of the kitchen stadium you are sitting.  The week began with a column penned by Jacques Pepin where he took a major chunk of reality chefs to task. Although not mentioned directly, much of the hullabaloo seemingly took Gordon Ramsay, king of the F-Bomb, to task.

The information that Pepin laid out was lined with a heart-felt indignation over the fact that on these programs chefs demoralize their staff, something that is hardly done in reality. Pepin went on to say in his article, “For the good of his or her restaurant, the chef should be a role model, an educator who probes and advises his cooks”.    Continue reading

The 2014 Definitive List Of The Best Hot Dogs In Dallas

dogby Steven Doyle

It has been a year since we revised our best hot dog list, and the list changed dramatically. Today we have bigger and better options when it comes to the reliable tube steak. Check out our list of favorites and enjoy all these dogs during National Hot Dog Month:

Luscher’s Post Oak Red Hots:  You might know Brian Luscher; chef, charcuterie maven, owner of The Grape. Just last year he moved into a new arena when he devised the Post Oak Red Hot. This snappy and delicious rendition is part of a full line up of dog related bites that includes an oak smoked hot dog made with locally raised meats. You can also find hand-made accouterments  to devise your own Chi Dog including sport peppers, spicy brown mustard and sweet and hot cucumbers. The dog is sold by the chef at the White Rock Local Market at Green Spot  on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, 8am to 1pm, and the White Rock Local Market at Lakeside on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays, 8am to 1pm. For take home goodness try checking out Bolsa Mercado and the Green Grocer.  Luscher’s is the Holy Grail of Dallas dogs. Continue reading

Nyotaimori Night at SISU

nyotaimori_sushi1by Steven Doyle

There is plenty going on at SISU, including the fairly new cordoned off area for food trucks that appear daily, the lux pool and cabanas, a decent line up on the menu of some relaxed spa type items and pizzas, and of course the hot Texas nights which includes electrifying DJ’s and bottle service.

Last night we received a photo from a reader with a message that SISU now had “naked sushi” or nyotaimori as it is labeled in Japan. This is the practice of service sushi and sashimi directly off the body parts of a naked woman, which has been banned for health and moral reasons in some parts of the world, including China.  Continue reading
