Beau Nash For A Lovely Repast

beau1.jpegby Steven Doyle

For me Beau Nash in the late 80’s was a siren song, a sultry tune tapped out on a grand piano. The cavernous room with hideaways and a bar that left no secret untold. A perfect perch to gaze on the beautifuls that ran rampant in Dallas. The stories are best kept secret, although there is no shame. It was a time of caviar and champagne, celebrated to full contempt in a cherished manner.  Continue reading

An Innumerate Baker’s Dozen of Interesting Wines

There is still shopping time before New Years Eve. Here are a couple of budget sparkling wines to help you celebrate.

First,Zardetto Prosecco (SRP $16) from Italy is made from Glera grapes from vines planted almost 20 years ago. Owner Fabio Zardetto has made wines since 1969. I tried this wine last night and it left a distinct impression. It has a tartness and clay minerality that makes it suitable for accompanying a meal as well as the traditional uses of Prosecco for toasting, mixing into a Bellini, and quaffing. Try it with turkey, ham or pasta dishes with cream sauces. Definitely a distinctive example.   Continue reading

Ser Steak+Spirit+Bubbly = Good Times

P1010908by James Davidson

Steven couldn’t make the Veuve with a View at Ser Steak+Spirit dinner, so the burden of eating amazing steak and sipping fine champagne fell on my shoulders.  You have to be a team player here at CraveDFW.  Below is how my dutiful evening went.

Mahogany aromas greeted me when I stepped off the elevator on the 27th floor of the Hilton Anatole.  The area I was seated had an intimate feel like the rest of the restaurant.  Stephanie a superb waitresses served me a glass of the Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut as I appreciated the Dallas skyline.  Lights from commuters on 35 reflected of the atrium of the hotel as I enjoy my appley champagne.  It’s going to be a good night.    Continue reading
