Isaac Rousso To Open Fast Casual Cuban Restaurant In Dallas

fairby Steven Doyle

I didn’t want to bury the story that Isaac Rousso gave us on yesterday’s craveRADIO show. While discussing his many ventures, including the State Fair, his food truck, and now the Draught House during Addison’s Oktoberfest, he leaked out the fact that he will actually be opening a fast casual Cuban restaurant and is currently looking for a space somewhere in Dallas.

Soon you will have those amazing Cuban sandwiches every day.

God bless you, Isaac.

If you missed the craveRADIO broadcast this past Sunday you missed a lot. In studio this week we enjoyed all the interesting stories Gene and Julie Gates shared about opening their restaurant Battuto Italian Kitchen in North Dallas.  Gene also shared his history of working, managing and owning restaurants in his past, before Battuto and before their radio history.

The pair of restaurant owners also discussed their opening chef Gustavo, and all the work that went into the opening menu. They have since hired super chef Joel Harloff who has a beautiful history working with Italian and other cuisines. Harloff is working on a new lunch menu and sends out daily specials that we hear are terrific.    Continue reading

Addison Oktoberfest Has Some Big Changes This Year

Oktoberfestby Steven Doyle

With a mere three weeks away the Addison Oktoberfest has some changes in the program worth noting. As in years past we will continue to keep our readers informed about one of  our favorite events in the area.

Here are the changes we have noted so far:

Chamberlain’s Brau Haus:  Richard Chamberlain takes over the VIP dining experience with a new tasting menu, special gifts and more. This is huge news.

The all new Draught Haus:  This replaces the former SportHalle (inside and around the Conference Centre) and will be designed and operated by State Fair fried food king Isaac Rousse (he of the fried Pop Tart and this year’s Fried Cuban Sandwich.)

Kaffee und Kuchen Haus update:  The team at Polk A Dot bakery takes over this favorite with an expanded bakery menu and more treats all weekend long.    Continue reading

Enjoy Addison’s Oktoberfest

by Steven Doyle

Last night Addison kicked off their Oktoberfest at 6pm to a large crowd of hungry and thirsty people. Mostly thirsty from many accounts.

You won’t want to miss the Yodeling Competition and Spelling Bee tonight, or the Bier Barrel events on Saturday. The Sunday Dachshund races are a highlight for many. Watching the stubby legged pups run for the gold is a sight to be seen.         Continue reading
