Food Truck Park to Open in West Dallas

by Steven Doyle

The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, which has often been referred to the Bridge to Nowhere certainly has redeemed that notion. As Mike Hiller broke over in December, there will be a multi-acre restaurant wonderland called Trinity Grove. Trinity Grove will encompass over 50 acres and will host restaurant incubations from some of the top chefs of Dallas, plus many springing out for the first time.     Continue reading

Four Lounge Celebrates With New Cocktail Menu

by Steven Doyle

We have been keeping a close eye on the work of Keith LaBonte, owner of Four Lounge located at State and Allen in Uptown. The barman has been making crazy good drinks at the tiny lounge and recently announced a new cocktail menu.

We featured LaBonte  on craveDFW a few months ago and the man does a superb job, especially at the molecular cocktail thing which can be so fun to watch.   Continue reading

Chesterfield’s Opens Today for Lunch

by Steven Doyle

We checked out the new Chesterfield’s which opens its doors today and is owned by Eddie “Lucky” Campbell and Ed Bailey (of Bailey’s Prime Plus). The small, but plush lounge is located at 1404 Main Street in downtown Dallas. The look and feel will take you back to Prohibition times. The waitresses even have a flapper-ish look about them at the new bar.

While sampling a few of the small plates offered by chef Michael Ehlert we were also able to taste some of the superb cocktails . The food we were able to try had a Middle Eastern flair and were extremely flavorful and well executed by Ehlert. Think kabobs and falafel. We were also able to sample a foie torchon, so the menu is not just simple bar fare. Early press releases mentioned flat breads and heartier dishes such as braised short ribs. Continue reading
