High Five Celebrates 2 Years on June 8th

high fiveby Steven Doyle

A fun hot spot that is a wee bit hidden on McMillan and Henderson is High Five. We gave them some love when they first opened and have continued to enjoy this tight atmosphere that is neither pretentious or self-indulgent.

June 8th High Fives celebrates two years on the grid and will feature live music and a DJ, a tot eating contest ($250 for the victor), a dunk tank and much more fun and high jinks. There will also be complimentary high fives given for those in need of positive affirmation.

To enter the contest please email Marc@highfivesdallas.com, this should be fun.

Eat Me: Monte Cristo at Vickery Park

monte cristoby Steven Doyle

When I think of the tavern on Henderson, Vickery Park, I think about this marvelous craft beer selection and late night tacos. The tacos are stored steaming in an ice chest behind the bar, and are always pretty damned good. They will also have burritos and a grilled cheese sandwich made with jalapeño havarti, smoked gouda and cheddar cheeses, melted in between toasted Texas toast. You may add bacon, jalapenos or avocado for a bit more cash, but otherwise this a great late night option.    Continue reading

Tei Tei Robata Bar Still The Best

by Steven Doyle 

Our roving contributing  photographer, Joey Stewart has been busier than ever hitting up the area’s finest sushi digs in Dallas. Today we visit Tei Tei Robata Bar on Henderson which is definitely one of our favorites.

Tei Tei was opened in 1998 by Teiichi Sakurai who is also the owner of Tei-An. Both are highly praised by local critics as Teiichi is the best at his craft. Teeich sold Tei Tei more recently to his chef, Katsutoshi Sakamoto, but you can spot the former owner sitting at the robata bar on any given night.          Continue reading

Eat Me: Roasted Baby Artichokes At Gemma

Gemma opened up just one year ago the day after Christmas and has fast become one of my favorite restaurants in the Dallas area. The clean, well rounded menu is always seasonal, always interesting, with some bold flavors done simply delicious.

One of my happy go-to appetizers is this roasted baby artichoke dish that is served with wild arugula, poached farm egg, and a Provençal vinaigrette. I have made a quick meal of this dish with a few oysters  paired up with one of the by-the-glass sparkling wines for a perfect repast.   Continue reading
