If you are a regular reader of craveDFW you know that we are super fans of TJ’s Seafood Market located on Preston at Forest Lane, and the new location on Oak Lawn Across from Al Biernat’s restaurant. The reason is simple, the proprietor Jon Alexis flies his seafood in every day, all day. He buys in quantities that sell quickly so nothing remains each day. We liked our beef aged, but not our snapper.
Alexis has teamed up with the boys at Veritas Wine Room (located on Henderson in Dallas) the third Sunday of each month to provide a lobster bake that includes a whole lobster, potatoes, corn, clams, mussels, sausage, etc. for $30. That shindig starts at 5:30 on the third Sunday of each month. There are plenty f great beers or wines t pair this dinner up with, so don’t miss that. But wait, there is a mega dinner planned or this weekend… Continue reading
