Eberhard on Henderson Soft Opens

DSC08108by Steven Doyle

The latest hot spot to open on Henderson Avenue is Eberhard, an interesting bar that is fused with a night club and a restaurant. The name Eberhard is an interesting one, and an homage to Eberhard Anheuser.

Anheuser was a German American soap and candle maker, as well as the father-in-law of Adolphus Busch, the founder of the Anheuser-Busch Company.He was a major creditor of the Bavarian Brewery Company, a struggling brewery founded in 1853. Eberhard Anheuser eventually became president and CEO and changed the company name to the Eberhard Anheuser and Company. His daughter Lilly married Adolphus Busch, a brewery supply salesman, in a double wedding with Anna Anheuser (Lilly’s older sister) and Ulrich Busch (Adolphus’ brother) in 1861. The company became Anheuser-Busch in 1879.  Continue reading

Eat Me: Victor Tango’s Lamb Lollipops

vt lamb lollipopsby Steven Doyle

Victor Tango is located on Henderson Avenue, and has always been synonymous with amazing cocktails. Look no further than the gallon-sized punch bowl that feeds 5 to 10 of your closest friends. You will most likely want to chow on some very good bar bites, and what is better than a humongous plate of extremely meaty lamb lollipops. Set on a parsnip puree and drizzled with a yummy mustard balsamic, the plate is large enough to share, or to make a meal for one.    Continue reading

by Andrew Chalk

With interesting restaurants opening at a pell-mell pace in Dallas over the last year or two it is a halcyon time for media types without any better ideas to put together “best-of” lists, usually over a couple of drinks. They may want to ponder that the active ingredient in “new”, insofar as restaurants is concerned, is the identity of the chef in charge of the kitchen. By that measure, Graham Dodds accession to the execuchef position at venerable Hibiscus has created a restaurant that is ‘new’ in the operative sense of the word. His task was complicated in following in the path of very capable predecessors.      Continue reading

DSC00411by Steven Doyle

The month old Henderson Tap House is serving up a huge menu in a very tiny space of a kitchen.The kitchen is outfitted with a wood burning oven, so the pizzas they offer come out bubbly hot and crisp. There is a large variety of soups, sandwiches and salads, as well as a pretty spectacular prime rib and potato nacho dish that has shaved prime rib, housemade potato chips, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, and bleu cheese crumbles.    Continue reading

Husband and wife restaurant duo, Allison Yoder and Stephen Rogers opened Gemma on Henderson Avenue December 26th in 2013, nearly one month ago today. The couple were warned of the location in a strip center where many restaurants had failed in the past due to high rents, but the property had been taken over by a new management team that felt that the fresh menu and cozy digs were ideal for that tract of Henderson which is soon to be taking on a new life of its own with many new additions in coming months.      Continue reading
