East Hampton To Open In Snider Plaza

by Steven Doyle

Look for a new sandwich shop to open in Snider Plaza in the former Jiang’s Cuisine location. The name should be East Hampton and will open this summer.

For those keeping score at home, this as the spot John Tesar wanted for his Spoon’s concept that will now be located in Preston Center.

Wicked Po Boy Opening This Week

by Crave Staff

Inspired by the distinct flavors of New Orleans cuisine, husband and wife team, Joey Le and Lan Chi Le will open their first fast-casual concept, Wicked Po’Boys, in Richardson this Wednesday, June 27th.

After moving to Dallas, Chi realized how much she missed the authentic, hole-in-the wall po’boys during her college studies in New Orleans. The couple began working on recipes and sketching ideas for a restaurant.

Post Card From Nola: The Alibi

by Dorothy Hernandez

Bar food doesn’t immediately bring to mind gourmet, or even edible, food. Its purpose is utilitarian, whether you’re trying to soak up the booze or prep for a night of heavy drinking. The choices are pretty standard: fries, nachos, any heat and serve product that you can take out of a bag and dump into a deep fryer.

At The Alibi, 811 Iberville in New Orleans, there are mysterious dollar bills pinned to the ceiling. Even at 1 p.m., it smells like Bourbon Street at 3 a.m. It seems like a bar this dive-y would have food only fit for the inebriated but The Alibi is one of those serendipitous vacation finds.

Weinberger’s Delicatessen Celebrating Tenth Anniversary

by Judy Chamberlain

Dan Weinberger may well be the King of Sandwiches. The Earl of Sandwich may have invented putting some meat between slices of bread, but Dan’s perfected it. A third-generation sandwich maker celebrating the tenth anniversary of his homey Grapevine deli, Weinberger learned to make sandwiches from his Dad in Chicago. The family’s first eponymous Weinberger’s Deli was founded in the Windy City in 1952.   Continue reading
