An Evening With Kent Rathbun

Last week we were talking about some pop-up dinners, and one in particular was a bit secretive. A group of fifty took the bait and were joined with chef Kent Rathbun at his beautiful home in North Dallas for an evening under the stars. There guests were treated to a meal grilled, smoked and otherwise given the flavorful Rathbun treatment.

An open bar included cocktails made with lush blackberries, and beer was provided by Four Corners Brewery. Guests were kept spirited by a musician who played quite literally everything you could imagine, and so well at that. Continue reading

Loving Lekka on Henderson

If you are familiar with Lekka in Far North Dallas on Preston Road you might be excited to hear that there is a new outpost on Henderson in the space that was once Gin Mill which closed suddenly one night in 2015. Since then the building sat quietly in wait of the new owners who have livened up the space with a fresh menu, slap-happy cocktails and all those pastries that make the original location so inviting.

For those unfamiliar with the 1921 N Henderson digs it is surrounded by Beauty Bar, Barcadia and Louies. The north side of Henderson that is spirited and romping.  Continue reading

The Meat Shop on Lovers Now Open

Opened by the Sands family, the good people who owned the Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek and part of the Hunt family ranch, Rosewood which raises amazing beef, The Meat Shop is now in soft opening stage (means ‘pardon our dust’ in resto language). Get a sneak peek in the early days of opening of this quaint butcher shop located at 4410 West Lovers Lane in Dallas.

My visit netted a deliciously in-house smoked pastrami sandwich that was cheesy, smoky and just downright amazing. They sell prepared foods such as sandwiches, smoked potato salad, twice baked potato, tomato jam and pimento cheese. There is also a large cooler case of beef from the ranch at spirited prices.

Celebrate Bastille With Us Today – Contest!

bastille1by Steven Doyle

The French get a lot of razzing from Americans, but fact is if it weren’t for the French we might all still be speaking with a nasty English accent and have very bad teeth. The French were vital  for the Americans to win the Revolutionary War. But to be fair we did give them Jerry Lewis.

This weekend we will celebrate Bastille Day, the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison which was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation.

There will be several Bastille celebrations in Dallas  and we want to share ways you might want to party and enjoy the day.     Continue reading
