As we have reported in the past, the very legendary Club Schmitz will close its doors for the final day June 1, 2014. The iconic bar and grill has endured the test of time, 68 years to be precise. This past weekend the Schmitz family invited us to join another piece of history, the Schmitz family reunion. There the family laughed and enjoyed cold beer, the iconic burger made by the 25 year veteran cook Tony Lee, and played shuffleboard.

Recently owners Bob and Larry Schmitz sold their plot of land and it will soon become a Race Trac gas station.    Continue reading

For the past month we have been fielding rumors that Club Schmitz would be closing this summer. In a panic we sent ace photographer Robert Bostick out for a photo shoot a few weeks ago. We both have been getting mixed stories, so we chose not to run with anything at that time.

Several Restaurant America Restaurants Closed In Dallas *Update

th1by Steven Doyle

Restaurant America seems to be pulling up roots in Dallas. The Chicago based restaurant group came to Dallas in a storm opening up restaurants across the city with promise of even more. The first casualty was the Mockingbird Taproom, which we found a bit sterile. That restaurant closed just months of opening and was located in Mockingbird Station.

Local food blog Side Dish reported last Friday that the Townhouse Kitchen + Bar in the Galleria was locked out for an apparent non-payment of rent. Then a flood of reports came to us about the very new Boca Chica closing. We actually had a report that was to run on Boca this week.       Continue reading

Acme F&B To Become Beer Garden

acme2by Steven Doyle

Acme F&B released their wunderkind chef Norman Grimm as they begin to re-concept the brand into a more casual beer-centric bar with food.  I confirmed the news with Brooke Humphries this morning and she said that she wanted to get back to her roots and do what they do best.

The space will indeed be a beer garden. “We have 36 taps, a great patio,” Humphries wrote to us, “we will have good food with a lower price point. I’m not a sea bass person, I am more a Waygu burger bacon jam and redneck cheddar or flatbread kinda bar person, ya know?”  Continue reading
