The creative minds behind the creation of Velvet Taco – the highly successful, trend-setting taco concept – are back. This time, it’s to change the world one slider at a time with their latest concept – Son of a Butcher (SoB).
Front Burner Restaurants’ executives Randy Dewitt and Jack Gibbons have partnered with the original Velvet Taco operations team, including Vice President of Operations Brian Watkins, to reimagine the burger category and give fans a nostalgic slider spot that serves up quintessential American classics. Dallas-based Global Hospitality Design specialists Harrison, who is also actively supporting the growth of the Velvet Taco brand, worked with Front Burner on the development of the design concept.
by Steven Doyle Woodfire Kirby’s, located at 3525 Greenville directly across from the Granada Theater will shutter tonight after its last service, which is anticipated to be a full house of long time regulars. Woodfire Kirby’s is kin to Kirby’s Steakhouse but has roots that date back to 1921 in Oak Cliff with a then innovative Pig Stand. We will follow up this story with one that regales the historic Pig Stand, but the latest incarnation opened in October of 2009 so this marks a sad day in restaurant history. Continue reading →
Clint Cooper and his wife Kim, owners of Village Baking Co., announce their second Boulangerie location will open to the public on Thursday, May 14th at 1921 Greenville Avenue in the bustling Lowest Greenville area of Dallas.

The hunt for the best burger is never ending, and most usually pleasurable. The latest burger sampling was this past weekend at Remedy, that wonderful new restaurant on lower Greenville Avenue, next to its sister restaurant, HG Sply. Besides having a fantastic cocktail program, Remedy makes one of the best renditions of fried chicken in this city. Seriously, Confit Amish Fried Chicken? Yes, it is spectacular. Yesterday was our first chance to taste the burger, which I have been hearing so much about. The taste definitely lived up to the hype. Continue reading →
We spoke this week with the owner of Clark Food & Wine, the very Texas restaurant located on Greenville Avenue that features smoked meats, interesting charcuterie, and flatbreads and so much more. Monday, February 2nd the chef-owner Randall Warder opens his second restaurant, C’Viche which will actually be located next door to Clark, and share the same patio separated only by a few potted plants. C’Viche will feature, of course, ceviche, tacos, and a few appetizers that are interesting like elotes en vaso and smoked brisket stuffed jalapenos. The new fast casual restaurant also hosts a fantastic bar with a good assortment of tequilas. Continue reading →
I reached out to Brooke Humphries (owner of Mudsmith, Barcadia, and It’ll Do) about her new burger resto, Pints & Quarts that will be located on the southwest corner of Ross and Greenville Avnue. This is a tiny building that formerly hosted a small tire shop.
If you drive by the corner you can see that construction has begun on the building, and Humphries is looking at mid April to open this burger stop that will have a “vintage gas station vibe”. Humphries said, “it will be as period correct as we can get it. You know I love that.” Look for solid fast casual burgers, flat top dogs with a good all-in price point below $10. Continue reading →
