Oak Serving Lunch And You Won’t Want To Miss A Bite

by Steven Doyle

We announced back in November that Oak, that fabulous Design District restaurant, was back to serving lunches under executive chef Brian Zenner. Zenner is the chef responsible for for honing the restaurant that opened in 2011, but sort of lost balance over the past year. Zenner had originally been hired at Oak, but was later sequestered to that beautiful little Uptown hot spot, Belly and Trumpet as their execu-chef. There Zenner rocked our world with innovation unlike anything that has been seen on that section of McKinney Avenue, and possibly never will see again due to the lackluster enthusiasm or superior cuisine in Uptown.

Chef Zenner has this wonderful background that lends itself to a canvass such as Oak.  He was born in Thailand, but also lived in Dubai and London, giving this chef a well rounded perspective on how we should be dining. The chef developed his skills working in Portland and in Austin before making his way to Dallas where he had a stint at the Mansion on Turtle Creek just before being recruited as Chef de Cuisine at Oak under opening chef Jason Maddy.    Continue reading

Lunching At Chino Chinatown

chinoby Steven Doyle

By now most of you have heard of the Trinity Groves project located just over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge (affectionately known as Large Marge). I know this because most evenings require a reservation to beat the growing population that are clamoring to dine on the boardwalk that contains seven lovely restaurants. But what most don’t know is that nearly every restaurant is open for lunch and they are spreading great deals on the same cuisine you find in the evening. That means if you work downtown you can make a 3 minute drive (including the free parking) across that beautiful bridge and dine like kings.    Continue reading

Tesar Gives You A Knuckle Sandwich For Lunch

IMG_2915by Steven Doyle

I know we recently chatted up the lunch service at Spoon Bar and Kitchen, but after a visit this afternoon just before the rains drifted in and out of the area I relished with a few friends at the beautiful little restaurant in Preston Center.

There were a few items I needed to taste, and one I wolf a full portion. The last time I was in was for a media tasting and one of my table mates ordered the ramen, so I went in a different direction. As we discussed at our table today, there can be no wrong orders since everything is perfectly delicious. But I wanted a whole bowl of that ramen. Continue reading
