Last week on craveRADIO we had in studio the bodacious Bob Stephenson from FnG Eats in Keller. Chef Bob was gracious enough to bring the crave staffers a bountiful feast of Habanero Peach BBQ Ribs, El Comal Baked Beans, a little Mac a J.A.C and Texas Sweet Tea. Needless to say, we need more guests like Bob.
We discussed the menu at FnG, which happens to be fun plays on a lot of familiar dishes, and the good chef enraptured us with a poem. You see, Bob is what they call a Poetry Slammer. He travels across the country to participate in poetry events, and if you listen to the show you will be able to see why he does so well. Continue reading

We spent the better part of the morning checking out a few new restaurants in the DFW area. One of the better finds was in Keller and run by the former chefs of Cool River, Bob Stephenson and Carlos Arevalo. Both chefs have an illustrious background; Stephenson alone has opened nearly 40 restaurants, but this would be his first to actually own.
FnG Eats is in the former City Hall restaurant space in Keller that was run by season two Top Chef contestant Otto Borisch. The space has undergone complete revamp and is now much more comfortable and easily managed by Stephenson, who said that he can see pretty much everything going on in the restaurant from any vantage point. He will be able to sauté a few veggies and seconds later greet guests as they file into the door. And file they will. This restaurant is good. Continue reading

Melody and Daniel Fitzgerald, who also own the nearby Sugar & Frosting cupcake emporium, have opened Southern Breeze Market Café in Old Town Keller.
Inspired by restaurants along the Carolina coasts, this Breeze offers seasonal “Carolina Chic,” comfort food enlivened by a modern-day culinary flair. The Fitzgeralds bring an understanding of incorporating farm-fresh ingredients into their offerings, and bring an impressive combined culinary pedigree to their newest endeavor.
“We wanted Southern Breeze to be all of our favorite restaurants, rolled into one,” says Melody Fitzgerald, who served as pastry chef at The Mansion on Turtle Creek, working directly for of James Wagner and Dean Fearing. Her husband Daniel, who honed his high-end fine dining skills working at luxury hotels in Maine, Colorado, North Carolina and Texas, agrees. Continue reading
