Woodfire Kirby’s Closes Tonight

DSC08240by Steven Doyle Woodfire Kirby’s, located at 3525 Greenville directly across from the Granada Theater will shutter tonight after its last service, which is anticipated to be a full house of long time regulars. Woodfire Kirby’s is kin to Kirby’s Steakhouse but has roots that date back to 1921 in Oak Cliff with a then innovative Pig Stand. We will follow up this story with one that regales the historic Pig Stand, but the latest incarnation opened in October of 2009 so this marks a sad day in restaurant history.   Continue reading

Eat Me: The Cheeseburger at Remedy

20150301_154237_1by Steven Doyle

The hunt for the best burger is never ending, and most usually pleasurable. The latest burger sampling was this past weekend at Remedy, that wonderful new restaurant on lower  Greenville Avenue, next to its sister restaurant, HG Sply.  Besides having a fantastic cocktail program, Remedy makes one of the best renditions of fried chicken in this city. Seriously, Confit Amish Fried Chicken? Yes, it is spectacular. Yesterday was our first chance to taste the burger, which I have been hearing so much about. The taste definitely lived up to the hype.  Continue reading

We spoke this week with the owner of Clark Food & Wine, the very Texas restaurant located on Greenville Avenue that features smoked meats, interesting charcuterie, and flatbreads and so much more. Monday, February 2nd the chef-owner Randall Warder opens his second restaurant, C’Viche which will actually be located next door to Clark, and share the same patio separated only by a few potted plants. C’Viche will feature, of course, ceviche, tacos, and a few appetizers that are interesting like elotes en vaso and smoked brisket stuffed jalapenos. The new fast casual restaurant also hosts a fantastic bar with a good assortment of tequilas. Continue reading

Pints & Quarts Set To Open Mid April

burgerby Steven Doyle

I reached out to Brooke Humphries (owner of Mudsmith, Barcadia, and It’ll Do) about her new burger resto, Pints & Quarts that will be located on the southwest corner of Ross and Greenville Avnue. This is a tiny building that formerly hosted a small tire shop.

If you drive by the corner you can see that construction has begun on the building, and Humphries is looking at mid April to open this burger stop that will have a “vintage gas station vibe”. Humphries said, “it will be as period correct as we can get it. You know I love that.”  Look for solid fast casual burgers, flat top dogs with a good all-in price point below $10.  Continue reading

Kolache Loving Bohemian Cafe To Open On Greenville Avenue

bohemianby Steve Doyle

In the not too distant past 1905 Greenville Avenue was the home to Ali Baba. There you were able to sit down in the smallish digs to a nice plate of kabobs and a hummus. Since then the restaurant has turned over a few newer restaurants, including Jack’s Southern Comfort who was not able to make the space work either due to its size, or parking concerns.

There is no doubt that within two or three blocks north of 1905 there is a hot bed of action going on, with the anchor of Trader Joes, The Truck Yard, and beautiful restaurants such as Nora and Teppo Yakatori. We love the food and rooftop at HG, and everything about the Blind Butcher. There is promise of more to come, even for that lone space at 1905. In a matter of weeks Bohemian Cafe will open in that spot, with the promise of Texas and Czech, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner from east Dallas resident Jason Horne.   Continue reading
