Adair’s Saloon opened in 1963 on Cedar Springs and operated by S.L. and Ann Adair. They were known for their cold beer and a half pound cheeseburger that brought in plenty of local college students who were encouraged to let their artistic side out by marking up the walls with graffiti.    Continue reading

Cooking With Paula Lambert: Dolce Habanero

mozz co.jpgby Steven Doyle

We have always been a great fan of Deep Ellum’s cheese factory run by the esteemed Paula Lambert, the Mozzarella Company. Our love for Mozzarella Company dates back to the very early 80’s when Lambert would create a handful of balls of mozzarella selling her products at the Dallas Farmers Market out of an ice chest in Shed 2 where you may now buy tacos. I would visit with Lambert and she would regale me with stories of cheese. Pure heaven. Continue reading

The eclectic wine café, Postino, will open first Dallas location

Postino Wine Cafe, the eclectic and funky wine café making its way out of Phoenix & Houston, is opening their first location in Dallas on Monday, April 19 offering lunch, happy hour, dinner and an equally lively weekend brunch.

Located in the historic district of Deep Ellum, at 2647 Main Street, Dallas, TX 75226 and sharing a stand-alone building with local favorite Merit Coffee, the new restaurant and bar features a carefully selected wine program as well as an approachable yet sophisticated food menu. 

With a motto of “drinking wine at lunch is not a crime”, the vibrant and passionate co-founder, Lauren Bailey explains, “Deep Ellum instantly caught our attention with its deep-rooted history, incredible buildings and lively community. We quickly fell in love with the art, the other businesses and most of all the people who make it such a special place. I had goosebumps when I first stepped into the building and knew in my gut that was the one.”

Vidorra Goes Crazy for Tacos

They say, “Everything’s bigger in Texas,” and at Vidorra, the phrase is taking on a whole new meaning.

As a fun, bold Mexican-inspired restaurant that doesn’t play small, Vidorra’s latest in menu innovation led to the creation of a four-pound beauty, El Jefe – an 18-inch giant jalapeño cheddar flour tortilla fried until crispy, then stuffed with Vidorra’s signature taco beef, chorizo, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese, queso, pico de gallo, guacamole and jalapeños.

Serving two to six for $28, this culinary prodigy joins Vidorra’s lineup of other giant offerings – like the Large Format Vidorrita or Guadalajaran – that are perfect for sharing. Or, if you’re so inclined, keep it all for yourself. Vidorra won’t judge.

“At Vidorra, we enjoy taking an adventurous approach to celebrating Mexican food, drinks and culture,” said Culinary Director, Rodman Shields. “We’re already well-known for our over-the-top cocktails, so true to our innovative spirit, we had to match that vibe with a taco so big our guests won’t believe it until they see it. Food should be an experience, and the El Jefe delivers on that.”

El Jefe is now available at Vidorra’s locations in Deep Ellum and Addison. For more information, visit vidorrarestaurants.com
