Last night in Trinity Groves we experienced the latest chapter of Fork Fight. This is the bracket-style throw down between all the new restaurants that are soon to open in the area. Last night we enjoyed the hard fought battle between LUCK (Local Urban Craft Kitchen) and Resto Gastro Bistro.
Each restaurant presented four courses and paired each of those with beer, wine and cocktails. On the Resto side of the bar they included a ringer in Eddie “Lucky” Campbell, who is known in circles to be one of the better barmen in Dallas. Last night the man did not disappoint as he concocted some tasty libations including a version of an Old Fashioned that was hard to resist.
We will go ahead and toss out a spoiler as you soak up the food porn from last night, the guys from LUCK won the battle in a narrow defeat. Be sure to nab your seats for next week as they take it into round two, narrowing the victors to the ultimate win. The contestants next week include Chino Chinatown and Souk. This should be an amazing evening. Tickets are on sale now here.
The best part about Fork Fight, besides all the great cocktails and eight courses, is that we are able to experience the coming restaurants going into Trinity Groves. What an amazing development filled with young and eager restaurateurs that have these amazing skills.
Resto: Tempura Rock Shrimp Wraps, Bibb Lettuce, Vermicelli noodles, Black Truffle Aioli, Ponzu Vinaigrette
