Brunch Notes: Mesero

mes1.jpgby Steven Doyle

It is time we make the rounds for brunch once again and there are so many options in Dallas which seems to be the brunch capital of our nation. We certainly take those long, leisurely hours sipping mimosas and bloody marys very serious in our city. It is a fine way to catch up with friends, shake of the revelry from the previous evening, and push the reset button from the previous week. Continue reading

Brunch could very well be the best part of a weekend. It is lingering, it is friend-filled, you may day drink without despair and the food. The food is definitely a central focus since it is unusual fare from what we dine on throughout the week.  I am not trying to convince you that brunch is amazing, you already know this.

To point we transport you a day or two in the future to this weekend’s brunch with Rob Olvera who is the Neiman Marcus chef at NorthPark. We first met him at his gig at Cool River and he has been plating some amazing food, besides this crazy good brunch. Continue reading

Dangling below a beautiful Matisse at le Bilboquet, the latest entry in French cuisine in Dallas, you will find immaculate starched table cloths, doting waiters and plates of foie gras terrine, apple tarte tatin and this crazy good Cajun chicken dish.

The restaurant itself is a New York transplant which has been in service for nearly 30 years at its original location on the Upper East Side and has been labeled as the snobbiest restaurant in New York, if you can imagine that.  Continue reading

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
