delucca1 (1)by Alex Gonzalez

Having received much traffic in its flagship Southlake location, Delucca Gaucho Pizza & Wine has opened its second restaurant in Dallas’ Design District. Owner and Chef Evandro Caregnato believes that Delucca’s new location is more centralized, shortening the commute of guests from various parts of the DFW metroplex.

At Delucca, guests are served pizza in gaucho fashion, in that they pay a set price and are able to try various types of pizza, similar to a churrascaria. Caregnato’s mission is to offer guests flavors from all over the world. Delucca is a one-of-a-kind cultural opportunity that everyone in Dallas must experience. Continue reading

Design District’s Primo’s Tex Mex Has The Same Tacos With A Side Of Cicerone

For many years Primo’s Tex Mex was the quintessential hot spot for hanging out late night  to enjoy a good amount of enchiladas and even more tequila. The McKinney Avenue haunt stocked plenty of tequila brands for those searching for a way to wash down baskets of chips and guacamole. This was the heyday for the brand until owner Eddie Cervantes eventually sold, and it soon closed after 28 years of solid service. Cervantes went on to open E Bar on Haskell and that hot spot on McKinney became So&So’s which is enjoying plenty of hot action of their own.

Dallas had lost a legend until more recently when twin brothers Mark and Dirk Kelcher revived the restaurant in the Dallas Design District. The brothers are talented operators who come with plenty of experience including Metro Grill, and even more recently part of the new ownership at Cedars Social. Their roots rival that of the original Primo’s and as caretakers of the name they have honored the tradition backed by slurpy good drinks and the same enchiladas once served to the many patrons on the McKinney Avenue location.    Continue reading
