If you missed craveRADIO this Sunday we have the replay below for our readers and listeners. This week we invited chefs Richard Chamberlain (Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House and Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill) and Jim “Sevy” Severson (Sevy’s).

Chamberlain discussed some of his tips for the upcoming Kaboom Town, his favorite dishes at his restaurants, and his love for hunting and fishing. Sevy discussed his start in the restaurant business working at McDonalds that lead to attending the Culinary Institute of America. Continue reading

Probably not a week goes by that a reader asks where to find a good haunch of beef. We invariably tell them one of the many steakhouses across the Dallas skyline depending on where they live. We love Nick and Sam’s. It could be that they pass out caviar like it was candy, and sincerely… isn’t it? We also love Pappas Brothers in all their wine goodness.
Tonight several craveDFW staffers will be at Del Frisco Double Eagle for a wine dinner. We love somm Jennifer Jaco and never bypass a moment where we can visit with her even for a few minutes. Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House also is a staff favorite, and we love his cigar room. Plus you get Richard Chamberlain, and that always makes for fun evening. Continue reading
