January 2020 has been a sad month with closures the Dallas restaurant community.
We were rocked by the news of LUCK in Trinity Groves bowing out, with a final blow out last Sunday. We were especially unsettled by this bit of news as over the years we had plenty invested mentally in LUCK and the owners, Chef Daniel Pittman, Jeff Dietzman, and Ned Steel who were all first time restaurant owners. The boys called on us months before opening their beer-centric restaurant in up-and-coming Trinity Groves having us attend pop-ups around the city as they prepared guests for something truly amazing.

Hot off of a grand opening in Uptown, The Clover Cluboffers Dallas a blast from the past. The new two-level restaurant is styled in the fashion of an old luxurious jazz lounge, where guests can behold live musical performances as they eat meals by chef Anthony Van Camp.

Dallas, prepare for a deal changing club and restaurant just days away from premiering on the Dallas scene.

Media types headed to Abacus in droves on Tuesday night for a special preview of Eddie ‘Lucky’ Campbell’s new cocktail menu and chef de cuisine Daniel Burr’s new bar menu. We reported Kent Rathbun hiring Campbell to Abacus and expected the fedora-wearing one to have a big impact on the cocktail list.

You know Lucky Campbell, one of our favorite Dallas bartenders. He was the mad man behind Chesterfield’s in downtown Dallas, and most recently behind the stick at Standard Pour where he was a constant fixture for those in need of a curiously delicious cocktail.
Last week Lucky went all MIA on us, and didn’t leave a forwarding address. Well, we found him, and this time he is at Abacus working with Kent Rathbun. Look at Lucky, getting all refined on us. We wish him the very best.
