Greenville Avenue Pizza Company Celebrating 8 Years of Pie

DSC08525by Steven Doyle

Pizza is big business in Dallas, as it is across the country. This is something that Sammy and Molly Mandell, owners of Greenville Avenue Pizza Company are all too familiar with. They have taken their small pizza concern started eight years ago and taken it to be one of the top producing restaurants of its kind in the nation. From the looks of the building, which stood the test of time through renovation and gentrification of the lowest Greenville area which is now engulfed in some seriously good restaurants now, you wouldn’t know that they have over fifty employees and sell a ton of dough each year. Well, more than a ton.   Continue reading

First Look: Remedy on Greenville

DSC06014by Steven Doyle

When the concept of Remedy was first suggested to me I was told it is a bit of Southern cooking like your mother might make. Now my mother was a fantastic cook, and we come from a restaurant family. My grandmother was an amazing cook, and this cuisine is a lot like what she might make; if my grandmother even knew what the word confit meant she might be able to duplicate the Remedy chicken. Not to take anything away from my family matriarch, but executive chef Danyele McPherson is pretty splendid in her kitchen.

First let’s get the best thing on the menu out of the way. Confit Amish Fried Chicken is something you definitely want to try first. Not only tender, but juicy with a crust that holds tight to the bird, and is seasoned with a deft hand and a keen eye. For this dish alone I want to hug and hold tight to our favorite cooking ginger, Danyele. I think I did. I forget the words to the teary-eyed speech, but that is not important.  Continue reading

Brunch At Clark Food And Wine Is A Relaxing Change Of Pace

20141207_141951by Steven Doyle

Brunches in Dallas are almost ritualistic, with copious amount of eggs served unceremoniously atop English muffins and drowned in a bright yellow hollandaise. Do not forget the requisite pitcher of mimosas that set off even the dullest Sunday Funday. But Clark Food and Wine has taken a different look at how a brunch should be served. You remember Clark, which opened its doors just months ago on the lucky side of Lowest Greenville Avenue and is owned by chef Randall Warder, the former exec sous at the Mansion during the Fearing era. This is a pretty serious restaurant that is easy on the pocketbook, but serves up huge flavors with many items touched by the house pizza oven or smoker.   Continue reading

First Look: Clark Food & Wine Company

DSC05158by Steven Doyle

What happens when you combine a five star chef with one of the funky new spaces on lower Greenville? The child would definitely be called Clark Food and Wine Company, and the chef giving birth would certainly be Randall Warder. Chef Warder has an auspicious resume, working with the Dean Fearing regime at the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek as executive sous chef for nine years, and more recently as chief concept officer at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.

The cuisine at Clark is more tapas-style, but hearty and more giving than any shared menu in the city. In addition to the shared plates, you will find a great selection of flatbreads, artisan sandwiches and smoked meats. This is definitely how we are enjoying our meals these days. It is a far more interesting date to enjoy a smattering of foods, chef-driven cocktails and a well appointed wine and beer menu with friends and family. Continue reading
