What’s Eating Your Phone?

Food-photoby Steven Doyle

Not a day goes by where we don’t spot a handful of people in restaurants snapping photos of their catch of the day. It has become a national obsession, and as our phones become better integrated with superior photographic abilities, our handiwork becomes increasingly better. Last week we started a new feature called “What’s Eating Your Phone” where you send us your favorite food shots, and the response was simply amazing. We literally were sitting on hundreds of your photographs within the first hour. If you have an original photo taken by your phone’s camera, please feel free to send it to us for consideration at steven@cravedfw.com. A brief description is always helpful.   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

The New LTO Chef Eric Shelton Shakes Up Trinity Groves

DSC09671by Steven Doyle

Kitchen LTO is now in full swing motion and in its second incarnation. You recall the restaurant in Trinity Groves that reinvents itself every four months, and the public chooses the chef. That chef brings along different flavors and a menu that is uniquely theirs and runs the restaurants as their own for a quarter of a year. The latest chef is Eric Shelton who most recently was the executive chef for the M Dining at the State Fair Music Hall. We have chatted with Shelton many times in the past and you can find some of our conversation here , but the chef comes to Dallas with a wonderful CV and an excellent culinary education.

You may also recall Shelton recently from the Food Network’s Cut Throat Kitchen episode where he cooked from a tackle box that was bestowed upon him. We love an inventive chef.   Continue reading
