Oak Cliff’s Bishop Arts district is a cultural hub of food, art, and music. It is where local business owners have set up shop and have seen years and decades worth of success.

Bolsa Blows Out Special 10th Anniversary Fete


Bolsa – Dallas’ pioneer of the city’s farm-to-table food and craft cocktail movement marks the occasion of its 10th anniversary with a party that welcomes back former chefs and bartenders on Sunday, September 23 at 6pm to “when the booze run out”.

Looking back through the Crave Wayback Machine we have written dozens of articles on Bolsa through the years. Our Editor Steven Doyle even worked with then barman “Lucky” Eddie Campbell and Jason Kosmas for an entire day, walking through the process of setting up the bar, purchasing special ingredients which required driving across half the city, and even visited with a young Matt McCallister to learn how to make molecular pearls that would garnish the cocktails for that evening. We even recall Mr. Doyle wearing the signature Lucky hat and vest.

To commemorate this very special milestone, current executive chef Matt Balke will be joined in the kitchen by former chefs Graham Dodds, Jeffrey Harris, Andrew Bell, Eric Wolf, Joel Harrington and “Chuy” (long-time line cook who worked with every Bolsa exec chef) to create the evening’s food. Behind the bar, previous head bartenders Jason Kosmas, Eddie “Lucky” Campbell, “Dub” Davis, Kyle Hilla, Jones and Spencer Shelton will craft a collection of special cocktails. Continue reading

Laurel Tavern Burger Is The Object Of My Affection

LMPR_LaurelTavern_Interior-05by Steven Doyle

The story sounds familiar, a few guys who own a couple of restaurants in California visit Dallas and have such an amazing time one of them decides to move here and open an outpost. This was the case for one of the owners of the very new Laurel Tavern on Lowest Greenville Avenue, home to delicious burgers and interested apps and cocktails.

First, let’s get that burger out of the way. In the land of many, many, many burgers I  can personally testify it can sometimes be difficult to distinguish one from the other, much less pick out a dozen best of the pack. In the case of Laurel Tavern they have succeeded what many have attempted in the past. In the words of Jules Winnfield, “This is a tasty burger”. And indeed it is one of my favorites now in Dallas.  Continue reading
