Eat Me: Victor Tango’s Lamb Lollipops

vt lamb lollipopsby Steven Doyle

Victor Tango is located on Henderson Avenue, and has always been synonymous with amazing cocktails. Look no further than the gallon-sized punch bowl that feeds 5 to 10 of your closest friends. You will most likely want to chow on some very good bar bites, and what is better than a humongous plate of extremely meaty lamb lollipops. Set on a parsnip puree and drizzled with a yummy mustard balsamic, the plate is large enough to share, or to make a meal for one.    Continue reading

Dallas’ Best New Restaurant May Be An Old Restaurant

IMG_4168Hibiscus’ Crispy Lamb Ribs. One of the best dishes I have had this year

by Andrew Chalk

With interesting restaurants opening at a pell-mell pace in Dallas over the last year or two it is a halcyon time for media types without any better ideas to put together “best-of” lists, usually over a couple of drinks. They may want to ponder that the active ingredient in “new”, insofar as restaurants is concerned, is the identity of the chef in charge of the kitchen. By that measure, Graham Dodds accession to the execuchef position at venerable Hibiscus has created a restaurant that is ‘new’ in the operative sense of the word. His task was complicated in following in the path of very capable predecessors.      Continue reading

The month old Henderson Tap House is serving up a huge menu in a very tiny space of a kitchen.The kitchen is outfitted with a wood burning oven, so the pizzas they offer come out bubbly hot and crisp. There is a large variety of soups, sandwiches and salads, as well as a pretty spectacular prime rib and potato nacho dish that has shaved prime rib, housemade potato chips, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, and bleu cheese crumbles.    Continue reading

Husband and wife restaurant duo, Allison Yoder and Stephen Rogers opened Gemma on Henderson Avenue December 26th in 2013, nearly one month ago today. The couple were warned of the location in a strip center where many restaurants had failed in the past due to high rents, but the property had been taken over by a new management team that felt that the fresh menu and cozy digs were ideal for that tract of Henderson which is soon to be taking on a new life of its own with many new additions in coming months.      Continue reading

Austin’s Houndstooth Coffee Making Its Way To Dallas

Austin-based coffee shop Houndstooth is finally set to open in Spring 2014 on Henderson Avenue. Houndstooth Coffee announced last year that it would open a shop in Dallas at a different location but has since decided that the Henderson spot was better suited for the café.

“Henderson has developed a wonderfully supported food, beverage & retail scene here in Dallas. We’re excited to watch the pattern of coffee and people weave into the vibrant cultural fabric here,” said owner of Houndstooth Coffee, Sean Henry. “We can’t wait until the new year when we begin weaving moments between coffees, guests and baristas.”

It’s been a big year for Henry who not only opened his second Austin location earlier in 2013 but also his own roastery and line of whole bean coffees, TWEED, which is also based in Dallas.   Continue reading

Gin Mill Celebrates the Repeal of Prohibition with a Winter Beer Dinner

gin millby Melissa Robert

With over 100 chairs filled with anxious patrons, The Gin Mill threw quite a dinner to help locals revel in their food and beer loving ways. The true guests of honor would have to be Franconia and Stone; breweries that is. I was lucky enough to be directed to one of the last parking spots by none other than owner, Peter Kenny. When we got a chance to chat inside, he was excited to be commemorating the one year mark for The Gin Mill, located on Henderson Avenue. Kenny, who also owns Capitol Pub and The Dubliner, has added reason to celebrate given the successful run of 5 and 18 years respectively. Continue reading
