Another tragic loss is Good 2 Go Taco which is located in East Dallas and owned by Jeana Johnson and Colleen O’Hare who also ran Mot Hai Ba (sold in 2016). Good 2 Go is in the same strip as Goodfriend and 20 Feet Seafood at 1146 Peavy Road. Continue reading →
Outstanding in the Field, the pioneering farm-dinner series that has inspired pop-up supper clubs across North America and around the world, returns to the Dallas area on Tuesday, October 23 to set its long, white-linen table in the fields of Sloans Creek Farm in Dodd City. Dallas chefs Jeana Johnson and Colleen O’Hare of Acme F&B and Good 2 Go Taco will bring their crew out to the al fresco kitchen to prepare a multi-course meal, sourcing on-the-hoof ingredients for the menu from the fields of host farmers Nathan and Ellen Melson and neighboring farms.

I stopped in to chat with the guys a few days ago and enjoyed a spirited conversation on how they started the bar, update on the package store across the street and why they can’t have anything nice. Continue reading →
