Perry’s Opens a Big-City Steakhouse in Frisco

Perry’s Famous Pork Chop

Perry’s Famous Pork Chop

by Andrew Chalk

Frisco is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, predicted to outsize Plano in the 2020s. One needs little confirmation of the big-city intentions than a visit to the new Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille just opened in Stonebriar Centre (on the east side of Parkwood just south of Gaylord Pkwy. Google maps wrongly shows it north of Warren Parkway for some reason). Continue reading

YO Ranch Steakhouse For A Slice Of Texas

DSC00159by Steven Doyle

Last week we checked out YO Ranch Steakhouse in downtown’s West End. This nearly forgotten side of Dallas actually has a few remaining and decent restaurants. Recently we had a lovely dinner with out of town guests at The Palm for a larger than life lobster dinner, and Ellen’s Southern Kitchen, all nestled together as if they were protecting one another.

The fact is these restaurants stay quite busy without an influx of local traffic. These are frequented more by visitors to Dallas and conventioneers. Gone are the crazy days of the 90’s where hoards of locals and visitors alike trafficked the streets in search of frozen margaritas and giant haunches of beef, but instead the area is walk-able, quiet and safe.

This is why YO Ranch does so well exactly where it resides. They do an enormous job of providing the weary traveler a slice of Texas and a nicely grilled slab of cow. They also host plenty of parties, both wedding and corporate in the adjacent barn. Yes, YO has a real barn reassembled from the actual 69,000 acre Texas Hill Country YO Ranch.    Continue reading

Why You Should Order The Spinalis At SĒR Steak + Spirits

DSC05532by Steven Doyle

Last night I attended a little fete at one of my favorite steakhouses in Dallas, SĒR Steak + Spirits. If you read craveDFW very often you have seen our discussions on the type of beef (Wagyu) and the chef (the impressive young Anthony Van Camp). Sēr is tops our beef charts for a few reasons; the unpretentious wine list, the fantastic bar, and a breath-taking view of the city. Oh, then there is the food.

I suppose we should always keep our eye on the prize, and last night we blazed through a few incredible dishes, including some plump and briny Wellfleet’s and a beautiful charcuterie and cheese board. We also shared with our table an incredible plate of foie torchon. The torchon had a delightful cognac character that made the evening so very special and festive.  Continue reading

A Preview For The Sēr-Curious

by Steven Doyle

Last evening I was an invited guest of the Hilton Anatole to sample a few of the dishes that might be making the Sēr Steak+Spirits menu when the restaurant opens for business this October. On hand was Anatole’s executive chef Thomas Welther and Sēr executive chef Anthony Van Camp who served dinner to a group of local writers and Hilton brass.

Due to construction on the 27th floor where Sēr is located the staff created a makeshift kitchen and dining room in the hotel’s rotunda, including a searing 800 degree grill just outside in view of the guests. Welther noted that he started working for the Anatole 2 years before Van Camp was born thus he was able to stay inside and engage the guests while the young executive chef labored in the heat and prepared dinner on the grill.         Continue reading

Interview With Bailey’s Team On What Will Become Of The Steakhouse And Chesterfield

by Steven Doyle

Obviously there is plenty blooming over at Bailey’s Prime Plus. The owner Ed Bailey owns the handful of restaurants scattered across  both Dallas and Fort Worth. We know about the recent brouhaha over at Chesterfield which Bailey has an interest along with celeb-barman Lucky Campbell, plus a slew of Patrizio’s (and a new one on the way in Southlake). Then we grab news that Bailey is the new owner of Uptown Bar and Grill.

So Bailey has plenty of restaurants in the area, but the flagship steakhouse really hasn’t taken off the way he would have liked.  The concept is different than your usual steakhouses. Bailey’s was actually created to be an upscale steakhouse that would attract women. So why hasn’t the concept worked?    Continue reading

Sneak Preview of the Anatole’s Sēr

by Steven Doyle

We know that Chef Anthony Van Camp has taken the lead toque at the Anatole’s Nana, which will soon be on the receiving end of a fresh scrubbing and a multi-million dollar face lift. The restaurant plans to close Nana Grill for good in July and re-open in October 2012 as it’s latest incarnation, Sēr.  Sēr will be billed as a steakhouse, and that decision has met with mixed reviews.     Continue reading
