holt

Suerte Tequila Sponsors Epic Cinco Fiesta at Industry Alley on Friday, May 5th, featuring $5 Suerte cocktails, serving $5 taqueria style pork tacos by Justin Holt, mariachis, and piñatas.

One of the many legends surrounding tequila is that it was originally discovered by luck. Well, actually it was by a rabbit. Or rather by a farmer’s wife who noticed the rabbit getting tipsy on fermented agave. Suerte, which means ‘luck’ in Spanish, would like to share their luck with you to celebrate Cinco de Mayo at Industry Alley.  Continue reading

The Hunt For The Millionaire Pie Of My Childhood

mill3by Steven Doyle

While pondering pie yesterday afternoon, and that is something I do on occasion, I flipped through the Rolodex of my mind and stumbled upon the elusive Millionaire Pie. My first entry of this pie in my mind was when I was a wee lad and attending Dallas public schools. This was before I was yanked out when my parents were horrified by the busing situation and sent to a school which had a lackluster cafeteria. This was also back in the day when Dallas public schools had honest-to-goodness cooks whipping up freshly baked yeast rolls, and homemade beef enchiladas every Wednesday.

Fire back to a day when if you were not relegated to a sack full of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, smashed for your dining pleasure, you would enjoy real food created by the hands of the lunch ladies who I considered at the age of seven my second and third mothers. This was before the time of bastardized Sysco boxes filled with frozen food-like trinkets dumped onto a sheet pan and turned out at 400 degrees.  Continue reading

Review: Roux Bistro

DSC00858by Steven Doyle

You have most likely seen the new restaurant at 4218 Lemmon Ave in Dallas, and caved to caution with thoughts of the unfortunate restaurants that preceded Roux Bistro. And there were some unfortunate concepts that occupied that space such as Tallywackers. Or Lolitas. Or how about Cafe Cancun. Some spaces just have a difficult time with their tenants until something truly wonderful comes along, and that is Roux.

Owned by veteran restaurateur and delightful Greek Theodore Koutsogeorgas Roux has a unique niche in the Dallas market. Call him Theo, his surname might be a bit of trouble for some. And you will see him roam the floor, attending each guest with aplomb. He has been doing this since his days at Goldfinger. I recall Theo from his management work at Beau Nash, and the gentleman has owned his fair share of delightful restaurants, and still owns the Greek spot at Collin Creek.   Continue reading
