Stuffed Avocado with Endiveby Jennifer Thomas

Sundown at Granada, a lower Greenville Avenue neighborhood restaurant and beer garden has launched a new menu that is 70% organic and 99% non-GMO. Co-owner Michael Schoder says, “The entire reason we decided to launch a new menu was to move towards an organic and non-GMO menu and promote eating seasonally.  We are finding ways to increase our organic options even more everyday.”

Executive chef Patrick Stark delivers an American menu with global flavors that is uniquely approachable using high quality local ingredients.  He explains, “The Sundown menu is an equal opportunity one supporting vegan, vegetarian, omnivore, carnivore, gluten-free and paleo diets.”  All of Sundown’s meat, dairy and eggs are organic.  All the fish on the menu is wild-caught.   The buns used are non-GMO (with gluten-free options) and gluten-free flatbread crust is also available.  All fruits and vegetables are non-GMO. The menu also includes super foods like kale, quinoa, Swiss chard and more.

Pat Snuffer Responds to FRG Court Action Barring Opening of Pat’s Burger and Cheddar Fries

cheesefries1by Steven Doyle

You may have seen Robert Wilonsky’s story over at the Dallas Morning News concerning Pat Snuffer and the controversy surrounding the opening of Pat’s Burger and Cheddar Fries that was scheduled to open the 16th of December. As we reported Firebird Restaurant Group took over the Snuffers brand through the bankruptcy court late November of 2013. The same hour, actually almost to the minute, both Firebird and Pat Snuffer’s agencies fired off a press release in what looked like a harmonious and orchestrated effort. Firebird announced the take over, and Snuffer announced his new restaurant on Greenville Avenue at the same location where the original Snuffers stood before it was demolished earlier this year.

A tipster sent word at noon yesterday that Snuffer, along with his partners Steve Cole and Patrick Snuffer had been served an injunction that would prevent the opening of Pat’s. Specifically, the 159 page document (see below) asserted “the defendant is operating a copy-cat version of its restaurant on Lower Greenville called Pat’s Burger & Cheddar Fries”. I called Snuffer and spoke with him just before he was to appear in court. He promised a call afterwards with the results. Early yesterday evening Pat Snuffer told us that the judge did not rule, instead issued a temporary restraining order and set a hearing for December 19, 2013.

Today, Snuffer issued the following statement to craveDFW:   Continue reading

Snuffer’s Changes Ownership And Pat’s Burger & Cheddar Fries Is Born

cheesefries1by Steven Doyle

Big news shot down the intertubes late yesterday with the announcement that the Bankruptcy Court found it was appropriate for Firebird Restaurant Group to take over operations of all six Snuffer’s Restaurant & Bar locations. You may know Firebird from their other ventures,  El Fenix, Meso Maya and Taqueria La Ventana. Firebird acquired the Snuffer’s bank  note back in March and was positioned to take over the concept through the bankruptcy rather than watch Snuffer’s close its doors.

Minutes after Firebird rattled off their announcement, Pat Snuffer sent word that he was opening Pat’s Burger & Cheddar Fries at 3526 Greenville Avenue. This is the site of the original Snuffers that was demolished and is currently being rebuilt. Pat Snuffer is joined by his son Mike and long time associate, Steve Cole. Snuffer said that the new restaurant will be a casual neighborhood spot offering traditional burger joint fare. Consider this a Snuffer’s reset.   Continue reading
