Fat Rabbitby Steven Doyle

Driving through Uptown last evening we finally spotted progress at 2533 McKinney Avenue, or the former home to Sfuzzi. The new restaurant and bar  will be called Fat Rabbit. This name was no doubt generated by the same machine that thought up Velvet Taco. Stay tuned for more information.

Nyotaimori Night at SISU

nyotaimori_sushi1by Steven Doyle

There is plenty going on at SISU, including the fairly new cordoned off area for food trucks that appear daily, the lux pool and cabanas, a decent line up on the menu of some relaxed spa type items and pizzas, and of course the hot Texas nights which includes electrifying DJ’s and bottle service.

Last night we received a photo from a reader with a message that SISU now had “naked sushi” or nyotaimori as it is labeled in Japan. This is the practice of service sushi and sashimi directly off the body parts of a naked woman, which has been banned for health and moral reasons in some parts of the world, including China.  Continue reading

DSC03006by Steven Doyle

The latest party venue in Uptown has a bit of a surprise. So&So’s, which opened just a few short months go is a great place in the Dallas Uptown area for a good cocktail, cool bands and kicked up people watching patio, but it is fast becoming a hot spot for good food as well.

With executive chef  Nick Amoriello at the helm the kitchen has taken a turn for the delicious, far exceeding what you might consider for a venue of this type. He is making a very good burger, and one of the better pizzas in the area. But did you expect hamachi crudo or one of the best beef tartares in Dallas? I did not see this coming, and what an amazing surprise it was to sample through the menu created by the former chef at Mot Hai Ba.   Continue reading

May is National Burger Month, and today is the celebrated Burger Day, so it only seemed fitting to speak with the baroness of beef, Dee Lincoln. You may recall Lincoln from her celebrated tenure as co-founder of Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, which she resigned from back in 2010 to blaze a new trail with her Dee Lincoln’s Tasting Room & Bubble Bar in the new Cowboys Stadium. Soon after Lincoln opened a second location in Rosewood Court in Upton which proved highly successful. Then there was something called Dee Lincoln Steak and Burger Bar that hit in late 2013. This was far more appealing to the masses, and it housed many, many burger options.     Continue reading
