With beautiful and artful leaps into fantasy, Cirque du Soleil returns once again to the Dallas area with the traveling production of Varekai. The show begins with the Greek myth of Icarus, picking up where the myth leaves off, re-imagining the story of what happened to Icarus after he flew too close to the sun and fell from the sky. In Varekai, rather than drowning in the sea below him, Icarus lands in a lush forest full of exotic creatures.
Varekai is a critically-acclaimed production that has wowed over 8 million people worldwide since it first premiered in Montreal in 2002. Since then, Varekai has visited more than 72 cities in 20 different countries around the world. Now it has landed in Frisco. Continue reading

Kenny Bowers is one bad ass chef. You would have to be in order to create the El Jefe Grande burger, the one he serves up at Kenny’s Burger Joint in Frisco. The El Jefe Grande consists of a 3-pound beef patty topped with french fries, chili, queso, jalapenos, a half pound of bacon, onions, pickles, lettuce and tomato. It’s all sandwiched between two giant slices of Texas toast, and tips in at more than 7,000 calories. It is a true beast of burden. Continue reading

Nearly one year ago we broke the story of the enormous gun club opening in Frisco. The private membership club was said to offer luxury amenities and fine dining. They held true to the promise in every way, and is scheduled to host a grand opening December 6 and 7, 2013. More recently the Frisco Gun Club announced that they secured mega-chef Scot Romano as executive, and he has been working on his menu since.
On the new executive gig Romano said, “This feels like the right fit for me. It’s all about balance. I look forward to impressing our VIP members daily in an intimate dining atmosphere and still being in contact with everyone else in a sophisticated casual cafe… as a chef and a hunter, it’s like a dream job.”
Today craveDFW secured a sneak preview of the menu Romano has been working on along with a few tasty photos.

I finally stumbled into Pizzeria Testa in Frisco on a recent Sunday night to see what all the fuss is about. Being a skeptical New Yorker (and pizza expert, due to the thousands of slices consumed as a child) I was anxious to see what Michele D’ Amelio has created out of the two 7,000 pound Stefano Ferrara pizza ovens imported from Italy.
It’s Sunday Night in Frisco (ghost town) and this place is packed. We actually had to wait for a table. Once seated our server Allison was on the money. A true foodie and her passion for the product came through immediately. Continue reading
