A recent trip to the YO Steakhouse in the West End in Dallas netted some fantastic beefy finds on their latest menu that includes plenty of local veggies. They are now using beef from the coveted 44 Farms in Cameron, Texas. This is the same beef that Tesar is using at Knife as well as other restaurants in Dallas. The beef at 44 is super high end with amazing marbling for an incredible finish.
Chef-owner Tony Street comes from a proud heritage of restaurant owners who absolutely know what their customers are looking for, and it shows not on;y on the menu itself, but in the execution of each dish.
Some of the new dishes include the local hydroponic fried tomatoes with jumbo lump crab and a sriracha remoulade is totally unique, is Louie’s Venison Roll-Ups which are bacon wrapped venison, jalapeño, and smoked mozzarella, grilled and brushed with molasses Dijon. There are plenty of these to an order, and enough to share. Continue reading

Our favorite adult playground is at it again, this time with giant watermelons and zero shame. The same spot off Greenville Avenue who makes the best cheesesteaks in Dallas is offering up a fun option for some end of summer love. Behold: the White Trash Bottle Service. When I first saw the headline in my email inbox I was thinking 40’s of Schlitz. No, this is so much better.
On Friday from 5pm until we run out, the Truck Yard is offering “White Trash Bottle Service.” Basically, they’re tapping whole watermelons with a pour spout and loading them up with tequila, fresh lime juice and triple sec. Combine that with the watermelon juice, and you’ve got a fruit keg full of electrolytes. And tequila. Continue reading

If you want a reasonably-priced Italian meal or a bar that is great for people watching in Preston center check out Cucina Neighborhood Italian. The cozy spot has been open under its current ownership and culinary team since May and, although we reviewed their menu for the Restaurant Week period, we had not sampled the regular menu until now. At a media event this week we got the chance to get a comprehensive look at the regular menu and get a feel for the ambiance of the place.
First, you are going to find familiar red-sauce Italian comfort food on the menu here at prices that make it viable as a regular neighborhood spot for dinner. The lunch menu is an abbreviated version of dinner, with a ‘$10 lunch’ section that features a sandwich and/or salad with a drink. A kids menu makes it family friendly, and a Sunday brunch menu departs the Italian theme for what might be called ‘Eggs Benedict Mainstream’. The restaurant features a full bar and wine list.
