A Visit to Little Katana

DSC00064by Steven Doyle

Nestled on the corner Travis and Knox, Little Katana quietly serves up sushi and Korean dishes to neighborhood patrons who pack the house all through the week. Monday is the perfect day to acquaint yourself with this little gem as it is half price sushi rolls and bottles of wine and sake. For the uninitiated, you may wish to start your dinner with the sampler platter which includes Crab Tempura, Seared Ahi Tuna, Shrimp and Lump Crab Cake and Coconut Shrimp Tempura served with an Asian Slaw.

You may have also heard the name Little Katana bandied about with regards to the new addition of restaurants at Dallas Omni downtown. Let us chat about this little sushi wonder for a bit:

Particularly enjoyable on the appetizer side of the menu are several hot rocks where the guest becomes the cook, sizzling bits of Kobe steak or thin slices of Maine lobster. Both are served with a spread of delicious sauces.  Other apps you may wish to check out are the Shumai which are steamed and packed with flavor. Often you will find these dumplings rubbery, but Katana’s version are soft and supple.    Continue reading

First Look: Patrizio’s in Uptown

DSC07441by Steven Doyle

Just a few moths ago Patrizio’s vacated their historic location in Highland Park Village. They quickly secured their new location at 3232 McKinney Avenue in Uptown where they have set up shop and opened for business yesterday. Although they are still in soft opening mode we were able to nab a sweet spot at the bar for a look at the new, and updated menu.

You will find many familiar favorites on the new menu, items that if removed would cause yet another earthquake in the Dallas area, such as the grilled chicken salad that is souped up with hearts of palm, artichokes, bacon red bell peppers and so much more. However, one thing you will notice, and not necessarily with the menu, is that the food has taken on a revamp. The food is actually quite good.   Continue reading

PS App Ahi Tacos_lowby Steven Doyle

Class is almost in session at the West Village’s newest gastropub, Public School 214, which will be opening doors to the public on Thursday, January 29th at 11 AM. In additional this opening news, they have announced Public School 972, which is headed to the Addison area in fall 2015.  This past weekend we had a chance to sample much of the fare at PS 214 at a pre-opening dining event hich gave us some perspective in what you have waiting for you when you come in to try the new restaurant, and you will want to come in for a tasting.

The menu at Public School exploits only the hottest trends in food and booze. So you can be sure to find a crazy good version of  chicken and waffles, with their tower high plateful secured by several  waffles made in house using a cornbread batter, with bits of corn, cheese and green chiles. This was served with a side of red-eye gravy for an extra kick.   Continue reading
