Henry’s Majestic Hosting a Pappy Van Winkle Paired Dinner

pappyby Steven Doyle

December is always a good month for so many reasons, but for many bourbon enthusiasts it is allocation time for the Van Winkle brand which is produced jointly by the Sazerac Company and Buffalo Trace Distillery.

Pappy Van Winkle is aged for 15, 20 or 23 years, which is considerably longer than the aging period for most bourbons. The 20 year is bottled at 90.4 U.S. proof (45.2% alcohol by volume) and has been described as “intensely fruity”. The 15 year is bottled at 107 proof. The 23 year is bottled at 95.6 proof.   Continue reading

Chef Roe DiLeo Talks About Hell’s Kitchen, How To Grill A Steak, And Where To Find Her Favorite Burger

DSC06051by Steven Doyle

Chef Roe DiLeo has this amazing talent for not only cooking, but making her patrons extremely happy. This is what she is doing as not only the chef at the new Henry’s Majestic in Uptown Dallas, but also as the general manager. This melding of front and back of the house is not entirely common, but DiLeo seems to manage with grace. It is the same grace we witnessed on her recent television gig when she appeared on the current season of Hell’s Kitchen (season 13) where she made it to the top five of all the chefs.

While filming Hell’s Kitchen there was a particular task of making a steak dish, which was judged by Chef Ramsay, along with guests Bruce Simon and Todd Simon, the owners of Omaha Steaks. Each dish would be judged by its appearance, and eaten only if they felt the dish looked favorable. DiLeo’s dish passed the appearance test, and eventually she won the contest with not one, but two steaks she had plated. Never challenge a chef from Dallas when it comes to beef.   Continue reading

Henry’s Majestic or: How I Stopped Worrying And Loved The Burger

20141214_140722_1by Steven Doyle

Settling into brunch at Henry’s Majestic yesterday, I sat down thinking of a traditional eggy dish offered such as the tantalizing sounding al pastor Benedict (a concoction made of crisped arepas, lime crema,a pair of poached eggs, avocado and a generous sprinkling of cotija cheese), or perhaps the offering of peppered pastrami hash  served up with Vital Farms eggs. This did not happen.

Instead I was enticed by my sly waitress, Brittany, to check out the burger. Let me interject that she is one of my very favorite servers in Dallas, and she has this uncanny ability to read what I might want to devour on any particular day. I ordered the burger. Henry’s chef, Roe DiLeo described the burger to me recently, and I was taken back with the very thought of her particular version.   Continue reading

Trigger’s Toy Fete A Smashing Success

DSC05714by Steven Doyle

In September of 2008, bar industry veteran Bryan Townsend and his pup Trigger joined forces to contribute to local area hospitals’ Animal Assisted program, which gives children the opportunity to interact with a friendly pet during their time at the hospital. After a few visits, Bryan realized the positive impact a simple visit from a dog like Trigger could have on these children undergoing therapy. As a result, he has created an additional charitable program called Trigger’s Toys.

The purpose of Trigger’s Toys is to bring further joy to the lives of hospitalized children by opening up doors for toy donations and monetary donations from the community; bringing childhood nostalgia to an environment that needs it. A visit from a kind-hearted dog like Trigger, or a toy to play with can make the world of difference in a day for a sick young person at the hospital.  Continue reading
