A Visit To The New Twenty-Seven

For more than a few years David Anthony Temple, or Chef DAT as he is sportingly known, has been the undisputed king of the underground dinner party. The chef has been mixing up long weekends of these intimate dining excursions featuring only what is local and fresh to the huzzahs of an ever-growing following. More recently DAT has taken that concept and formed it into a more permanent restaurant in the very digs where he often dabbled. Twenty-Seven is a culmination of those years of development, and I am personally pleased with what we found this past weekend.     Continue reading

Writing about Pecan Lodge has sort of become this low hanging fruit. Everyone knows it is some of the world’s best BBQ. The Hot Mess isn’t so much messy as it it sublime with it’s pulled pork goodness perched on top of a giant sweet potato. The brisket is superb, and you should always ask for fatty pieces because those are simply the best.

The ribs at Pecan Lodge are huge and meaty, especially when they switched over to spare ribs. If you want a giant haunch of meat, the beef ribs weigh as much as a small child and are as tender as anything you will ever put in your mouth. And the house-made sausages are not to be missed, especially the jalapeno version.
