We have maintained CraveDFW for quite a few years now, and have enjoyed serving the Dallas restaurant community on a small budget. We have written thousands of articles with millions of views. Many of the articles I have written myself, but we have encouraged the community to publish articles as well. We particularly love it when a chef, a bartender, a winemaker or another expert shares their expertise, and we have actively promoted those articles. Continue reading
Dallas Design District gallery, Laura Rathe Fine Art (LRFA), announces a solo exhibition featuring new works by celebrated porcelain installation artist, Lucrecia Waggoner. LRFA will be hosting an opening reception on Saturday, May 11th, from 5-8pm with an artist talk at 6:45pm, moderated by gallery owner, Laura Rathe.
Waggoner’s impressive installations are intricately mapped to suit their surroundings and are inspired by forms found in nature and abstract visions of landscapes. She incorporates various materials in her work, including precious metals, such as 22k Gold, palladium, and bronze, which add depth and illuminate each individual vessel. Waggoner harmonizes organic forms and geometric patterns to create compelling compositions that distinctly transform any space. Continue reading

A visit to the old Fat Rabbit location, now home to a very upgraded and very stylized adult restaurant PL8 that seems to wish to break the pub feel of Uptown that appears to be adulting more and more with each new concept that moves in. PL8 is a dizzying malange of menu items that may have you questioning the direction of the restaurant until you learn that the imported chef Long has worked across the globe and is adept at cuisines such as Malaysian, Indian, Mediterranean and much more. This reflects on the menu and once tasted you will get it.
The atmosphere is grown up and we were told that they are no longer open late nights, so this fits in with the very bright look of the white wood floors and emphasis on local art, which all is for sale. Think of Pl8 as a galleria with a cool menu. Continue reading
