A Few Of Our Favorite Eggs In Dallas

eggby Steven Doyle

There has been this terrific trend in past years of adding an egg to most anything to make a more supple and delicious. The burger is a prime target for this unabashed egging, and always a welcome garnish on any style of tartare. The egg, if prepared correctly, provides a silky self-saucing thrill that ups the ante to sandwiches, pasta and salads. Eggs are not just for breakfast. Today we explore a handful of primo examples of how the egg has enhanced many dishes in the Dallas area.    Continue reading

Eat Me: Orange Glazed Duck Drumettes at Blind Butcher

duckby Steven Doyle

It was just weeks ago that we were extolling the virtues of Blind Butcher’s  executive chef Oliver Sitrin and his Tripe and Tails dish. It is always good to stop by his deli case pass through for a brief visit to see what he has cooking up that particular day. Last night he suggested the boudin, which was hella good. He hand makes his sausages, as a good chef should, and gives it the grilled treatment.

The sausage was served up with some terrific greens laden with shards of subcutaneous fatty bacon. I am sure the chef calls the bacon ‘lardon’, because it is so much more of a refined way of saying bacon chunks.   Continue reading

Eat Me: The Tripe and Tails at Blind Butcher

blindbutcherby Steven Doyle

It is most assuredly known that Blind Butcher is one of our top favorite pubs in Dallas, with a massive choice of taps, cocktails, decent wines and the best bar food in the city.

Executive chef Oliver Sitrin has created a menu that will change often, depending on what is in season and available, and use as many local ingredients as possible.  Sitrin says, “I have an old-school view on things. The flavors in my dishes are not to be confused, and I don’t believe in waste.  I try to not over think or over do it. I grew up eating these things and playing around with their ingredients – pate, hand-cranked sausages and charcuterie.  It’s fun and creative food that pairs well with our cocktails, beer and wine.”    Continue reading
