Dee Lincoln, creator/founder of Dee Lincoln Steak Bar – a casual steakhouse with prime cuts and gourmet burgers – has secured a location in Fort Worth. Located at 3280 West Seventh St. in the Museum Place project, the expected opening date is first quarter of 2015 and will mark the third location for the concept.
Lincoln says, “I am very excited to build a brand that truly has a soul. I like that this restaurant appeals to the younger generation as well as the older.” Lincoln appreciates the importance of keeping her fans happy through multiple decades, while at the same time appealing to a younger diner. She recognizes the value of evolving in this industry and accepts the challenge of delivering on the expectation of the ever-changing and educated diner in today’s world, while also staying true to the core of her brand.

Dee Lincoln Steak & Burger Bar’s Plano location will open to the public for dinner service this Friday, April 25th. Located at 4701 West Park Boulevard, Lincoln has appointed Andrew Powers (Mansion on Turtle Creek, Trece, Waldorf Astoria in Utah, Magnolia Hotel Dallas) as executive chef of this location. The menu is an approachable one with updated steakhouse fare and inventive burger recipes in a comfortable and relaxed setting.
Powers has been with Lincoln since she opened the first location in Uptown Dallas, September 2013. Lincoln says, “chef Powers has that rustic sensibility while at the same time refined cooking that is a good fit for this concept. He also understands the importance of providing only the best product possible and goes out of his way working with the farmers and purveyors on sourcing.” Powers and executive chef Juliard Ishizuka, from the Uptown location, will work in tandem and support one another for both locations.

For years when asked where to dine in Plano and even further north of Dallas there were few choices. Certainly there are plenty of national chains to choose from, and plenty of Indian restaurants, some decent, some not so much. The choice for many suburbanites was to make a trek into the inner city of Dallas and its surrounding neighborhoods. However, in recent weeks there have been some moves to change that and actually bring some of the better restaurants to the burbs.
The first to come to mind is the Bishop Arts District BBQ haven, Lockhart Smokehouse that is operational and located in downtown Plano at 1026 E 15th. There you may already sample some of the best ‘que North Texas ha to offer. Now in Plano. Continue reading →
The space that was previously JoJo Eating House has been updated and looks fresh as ever, still with the very open kitchen featuring my favorite dining bar in Dallas, and the spiffy cocktail bar at the entrance that serves patrons both inside and out. The large doorways still are part of the building, and open widely on cool and breezy days such as the one we had today.
The luncheon menu is very similar to the evening menu, with very few adjustments such as bigger beef entrees. The menu we selected from today made us drool as we chose some delicious appetizers such as a tuna stack, which are nearly palm-sized crisps layered with fresh chopped ahi tuna, each different as you bulldoze through the tower.
