Dough Dallas Closing Tonight, Opening in Plano

doughby Steven Doyle

One of our very favorite pizzerias is closing its door after tonight, and not due to any horrific market turn or extreme lease hikes. Dough will be moving their operations to Plano into a smaller footprint to match a similar set up as the new San Antonio location opening soon near the historic Alamo.  Continue reading

Fat Rabbit Swooning Us With New Menu

DSC00771by Steven Doyle

A recent visit to Fat Rabbit netted a whole table of interesting twists on some old familiars.

Looking to take a change for a more comfortable surrounding and perhaps less on the less sustainable party scene Fat Rabbit upped their game recently with a snazzier menu. Fat Rabbit is part of the group that is soon opening Circo exactly across Routh from the back patio of Fat Rabbit.   Continue reading

San Antonio Hot Joy Making Its Way To Dallas

hot joy4

Some restaurants have “it.” Hot Joy has it in spades, though defining exactly what “it” is can be a little mind-bending.

Hot Joy burst onto the San Antonio dining scene in 2014 and immediately threw convention out the window. Owner Chad Carey describes the menu as “a wild mash-up of China, Texas, Vietnam, Japan, Louisiana, Thailand, Mexico, Malaysia and anything else that lights up our brain.”   Continue reading

Bunnies And Springtime Refresh The Plate

As the Easter holiday approaches we are reminded about renewal of the planet, fresh Spring daisies and bluebonnets, little baby chicks and bouncy bunny rabbits.  It is also a refreshing time for new restaurant menus as they roll out seasonal dishes to reflect the new found bounty. We are now seeing ramps, morels and even fiddlehead ferns gracing our plates. This is a fantastic time of year.

We would love to make a list of our favorite deviled eggs, which are everywhere now and a definite taste we want at Easter.  You will see a new version daily at Parigi on Oak Lawn. We also enjoy the deviled eggs at Nick and Sams where there are three versions on the same platter, but particularly enjoy the caviar topped eggs.  We adore Sissy’s version as well.     Continue reading

Dumplings In Dallas

by Steven Doyle

Dumplings are simply cooked dough. Each culture has their own version and they can be steamed, poached, boiled, baked or fried. When thinking dumpling, many will immediately gear towards the Asian cultures with their plentiful varieties, but there are so many more representations of the dumpling and most are available in Dallas.

When looking for the perfect dumpling look no further than a pierogi, the boiled or baked dish with Central European roots can be filled with meat, cheese, fruit and even sauerkraut. A popular filling in the United States is the venerable potato.  Continue reading
