This weekend we checked out the Trinity Groves area just beyond the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in West Dallas to find construction proceeding towards opening. Many of the new shops and restaurants were slated to open early summer, but instead will be delayed until September. This will give newly signed tenants a chance to work through their construction without interference. Once the building is complete the businesses will begin opening on a staggered schedule.
The main pavilion has been accounted for with much of the front facing spaces that overlook Singleton will be restaurants, while the north side facing the 3015 facility are a majority of retail space.
A walk through on Sunday revealed more information on what we might expect starting this September. Continue reading

Yesterday proved that all the months of planning craveRADIO was well worthwhile. The two hour broadcast on 1190 AM went by extremely fast. When we completed our inaugural program there were still many callers left hanging, and one very special guest we were not able to speak with. Overall we deemed the first show success, but that is certainly for the public to determine.

Mark has a keen insight into restaurants, and for phase one of Trinity Groves he is on the selection committee and develops the new concept along side Phil Romano. Continue reading

Savor Dallas is one of the premier food and wine events in Texas, and enjoyed each year by literally thousands of enthusiasts. The event seems to be growing at a quicker clip each year with more interesting and exciting events to get people out of the house and exposed to our wonderful restaurants, and of course the wine.
Jim White is Dallas gem and has planned for even more this year with events spreading out over an entire week. Look for a huge event at 3015 in Trinity Grove, and we just learned of another new event at the Dallas Arboretum that will be a lot of fun. The Arboretum explodes in the Spring and on Sunday, March 17, 2013 you will be able to stroll the grounds and enjoy premium wines, beers and spirits. You will also find some nice restaurants and caterers on hand to help make the evening even more delicious. Continue reading

It’s no secret that we like pie. We like good pie in virtually every delicious flavor. This is why when we stumbled into Donna’s Pie House Café we were happily met by Jim and Donna Benedict who offer up not only delicious, and beautiful pies, but also some really good burgers, salads, soups and sandwiches.
Originally called Rosebud’s, the couple rebranded their restaurant to avoid confusion that they might be a tea room. Gone are all the nifty gifts in the front display. The total revamp now features what Donna does best – pies. Continue reading

Come this Thursday night, it’ll be nigh impossible not to find a party associated with Fashion’s Night Out, that evening of soirees that kicks off New York Fashion Week. Dallas happens to go all out for it, with every shopping establishment worth its salt throwing a cocktail-soaked mini-fete in honor of, well … shopping. But you need energy for the hours on end of high-heeled revelry, so here’s a little guide to where to feast (or nibble) pre-FNO, depending on your circumstance (call ahead, as most of these spots require reservations). Aimed at ladies, ’cause, let’s face it … you kind of own the night. Continue reading

Starting today and extending through the month of April, Sullivan’s Steakhouse will be running a Steak and Cake special where you can get an 8 oz. filet, a 4 oz. crab cake and either a wedge or Caesar salad, all for $39. I was invited to come check this out.
Sullivan’s is more like 3 different establishments under one roof: a bar/patio, a dining room and a lounge called Ringside. I showed up a bit early so I could get a feel for the restaurant and the bar was popping. Their signature cocktail is the Knockout, a martini made from Smirnoff Orange Vodka infused with fresh pineapple with an orange twist. I was worried that it would be too sweet but it tasted exactly like fresh cut pineapple with a punch. This will go great sitting out on the patio, listening to the live music. But I am here for the food. Continue reading
