STIRRing Up The Love In Deep Ellum

stirrby Steven Doyle

Deep Ellum is fast becoming a hotbed of  culinary fashion with the advent of new openings that seem to be increasing in speed. The latest opening that gives us cause for a bit of reverie is STIRR located on Main in the space formerly known as Club Clearview. 

Cheffed by Chad Bowden, who made a transition from Culpepper in Rockwall, fits into this concept which implements fire as a component in his cookery. There are some familiar flavors that many in Dallas have never sampled but was part of his arsenal in Rockwall. Having Bowden on this side of the bridge is as welcome as plum pudding on a Christmas morning. For those that have never met chef Bowden, you are in for a playful treat.    Continue reading

Resto Gastro Bistro to Host 44 Farms Dinner October 29th

44 farmsby Steven Doyle

It has been about a year since I last visited the people at 44 Farms. You most likely recognize the name from the many top quality menus that feature their beef. They feature the beef for good reasons. Such as the fact that 44 Farms refuses to use hormones for their grass fed beef, and have strict quality control over their herd. It is also important to know where your food is grown and how it is handled. The transparency makes a world of difference.  Continue reading

Knife Has a Bacon Sampling You Won’t Want to Miss

baconby Steven Doyle

The meat Mecca of Dallas is without a doubt, Knife located in the Highland Dallas located just off Central Expressway at Mockingbird. This is the love-child of chef John Tesar who has elevated the steak experience, and the results are precious.

The menu is dotted with a whole host of steaks ranging in price from the very affordable, to the more exotic and a bit pricey. However, the latter comes in giant slabs and sliced for easy sharing, so the cost per person is actually as easy to swallow as the dry aged beef.   Continue reading
