Burger of the Day: Half Pound Burger at Lee Harvey’s

leeharvey2by Steven Doyle

There is a place, a hidden place, where you can find cold beer, great burgers and incredible live music. This is the place many know as Lee Harvey’s. In its own compound surrounded by barbed wire and a double gate to prevent happy pets from either getting in, or escaping, you will find nothing but great camaraderie and smiles at this hot spot in the Cedars area of Dallas.

The food at Lee Harvey’s is nothing short of splendid, and is made out of a kitchen  much smaller than your own at home. The food comes out quickly and perfect every time for a place with such adversity as this small workspace. But that is the only thing small about the bar. The burgers are enormous, clocking in at a half pound and topped with as many ingredients as you might care to savor. The meat is juicy and hand formed, and even though the bun is sturdy the juices make fast play with your ability to manage this monster.   Continue reading

Eddie Campbell Buys Standard Pour

standard3by Steven Doyle

When the investors of Standard Pour decided to turn over the keys to their bar, the name that topped the list to sell to was Dallas’ perennial barman, Eddie “Lucky” Campbell. His own bar is situated just feet down the road, the very successful, but tiny, Parliament. The actual transaction took place January 1st of this new year and Campbell has big ideas to take the extremely popular uptown restaurant/ bar to the next level.

The thrust of these ideas begin with happy hour, something Campbell is quite good at. Look for a new happy hour cocktail menu that will no doubt tantalize and includes 13 new drinks, plus beer, wine and champagnes. The happy hour food menu will also be half price, making Standard Pour an excellent destination for those who live and work near uptown to grab a few cocktails and dinner on the cheap.  Continue reading

If you are familiar with Lekka in Far North Dallas on Preston Road you might be excited to hear that there is a new outpost on Henderson in the space that was once Gin Mill which closed suddenly one night in 2015. Since then the building sat quietly in wait of the new owners who have livened up the space with a fresh menu, slap-happy cocktails and all those pastries that make the original location so inviting.

For those unfamiliar with the 1921 N Henderson digs it is surrounded by Beauty Bar, Barcadia and Louies. The north side of Henderson that is spirited and romping.  Continue reading

high fiveby Steven Doyle

A fun hot spot that is a wee bit hidden on McMillan and Henderson is High Five. We gave them some love when they first opened and have continued to enjoy this tight atmosphere that is neither pretentious or self-indulgent.

June 8th High Fives celebrates two years on the grid and will feature live music and a DJ, a tot eating contest ($250 for the victor), a dunk tank and much more fun and high jinks. There will also be complimentary high fives given for those in need of positive affirmation.

To enter the contest please email Marc@highfivesdallas.com, this should be fun.
