Our latest find in Indian cuisine comes out of Plano and Fort Worth with a tiny restaurant called Maharaja. The very tidy and well appointed restaurant serves up a very fine version of both Northern and Southern Indian cuisine. That means the restaurant is strong for both vegetarians and omnivores. For the latter you will find beef, seafood, lamb and chicken dishes to satisfy those meaty urges, all in your favorite comfort sauces which is perfect for the turning weather. The dishes will definitely warm you up on a breezy Fall evening.
You will want to start your evening off with a cup of madras soup, the coconut-tomato soup with a hint of spice. This is definitely the ultimate in tomato soup. Also the raita salad is particularly cooling when set against some of the spicier dishes. This is made with fresh yogurt, whipped and blended with shredded cucumber, tomatoes and chopped cilantro.

This week, Del Frisco’s Grille in Fort Worth’s buzzing downtown threw a celebratory “plates and pints” dinner with brewery founder Fritz Rahr in attendance to regale a packed room of happy Rahr fans (Rahrites? Rahrians?) with just some of his extensive mental inventory of tales from the first ten years. Continue reading
Try the The Fon-Duuuude burger at the Swiss Pastry Shop in Fort Worth. Here you will taste a half pound Wagyu beef patty with Hen of the Woods, King Trumpet and Brown and White Beech Mushrooms smothered in Swiss Fondue. This might possibly be the most insanely well constructed burger we have seen in a while. And believe me, we see them all.

From the world of press releases we find this in our in-box today. Pegaso has been reported as Monica Greene’s new restaurant, but in actuality Miss Monica is consulting partner on the project. As a fast casual concept it looks mightily like BEE (Best Enchilada Ever) in Oak Cliff was. You remember BEE, the fast casual build-your-own burrito bar. Miss that place, because thy were pretty damned good enchiladas. Anyway, on to the press release business. Continue reading
