Eat Me: Nordstrom’s Crab Mac and Cheese

baz2by Steven Doyle

Most probably do not consider department store dining to be all that exceptional, when in fact we have several hot restaurants tucked away in the back of some of our finer purveyors for skirts and shoes.  We have written about Neiman’s Zodiac more than a few times and they have been treating Dallasites to delicious fare for over 62 years.

Located in NorthPark Center at Nordstrom find a hot little gem called Bazille, which otherwise is known as the grill. There you will find delicious sandwiches, soups, pizzas, roasted fish, steaks and hearty pasta dishes. There are also delicate spa foods to be found for those with lighter appetites.  Continue reading

We enjoy our brunch at craveDFW almost as much as we love our seafood, so when we checked out Water Grill for early Saturday we were excited for a meeting of two of our favorites.

The Water Grill brunch menu features Southern classics with a seafood twist such as the Crab Benedict prepared with jumbo lump blue crab, poached organic eggs and grilled asparagus, the Farmed Atlantic Salmon Hash served with sunnyside eggs, feta and mustard hollandaise, and the Poached Salmon Rillettes featuring creme fraiche, mustard, dill and tobiko. The Rillettes are reason alone for enjoy this brunch and is a perfect sharable item. This opens up more possibilities for entrees, and we are looking at you Crab Benedict.   Continue reading

Maggiano’s Offers New Brunch Items

magg1by Trey Moran

I had the pleasure of sampling the upcoming brunch menu at Maggiano’s Little Italy at Northpark this past weekend and from what they presented it should be a hit.  I’m not much for the big chain restaurants but I have always enjoyed Maggiano’s. The food is always on point and there is always an energetic atmosphere.  And it is always a good place to end up after hiking Northpark all day.   Continue reading

The Brunch At Top Knot Will Cure All

top-knotby Steven Doyle

Brunch is an important meal which should be considered carefully; one wrong choice and your entire week will need a reset. This was not the case when we recently chose Top Knot, the younger sister restaurant to Uchi, for our brunch of the week.

The experience is one that is serene yet engaging all at once. We expected the food to be first-rate, and of course it was, but the clean lines of the restaurant take on  a different experience with the day streaming through the windows with discretion, the wood invites, and the staff is understanding that perhaps wrong choices might have been made the night before and are eager to ease any suffering.   Continue reading

Brunch Magic at Toulouse

by Steven Doyle

So I’m writing this stuff and some of you are reading. I know because when I am out waiting on a cocktail you will ask me if I am going to order a Manhattan. Or on a Saturday you will ask me where I am heading to brunch  the next morning. Busted. I am an avid brunch-a-holic.

It’s not so much the food. Yes, I have a not-so-secret love affair with the egg, securing breakfast or brunch as a top favorite meal. But the conversations that take place at brunch are so much more livelier than at dinner. Perhaps inhibitions drop after a night of revelry. Whatever the case may be, brunch is king.           Continue reading
