craveRADIO: July 28, 2013

This past Sunday on craveRADIO we hosted several amazing guests including Elias Pope, one of the owners at HG Sply Co. located on lowest Greenville Avenue. We discussed what the whole paleo diet is, what it isn’t, and he shared some of the more delicious items on the menu. Be sure to taste that lamb shank, it is a giant ball of lamb goodness.

Elias also discussed HG’s philosophy on culling ingredients from local sourcs, something that is extremely popular these days. But Elias has a different take on local, and goes extreme when possible, including tapping into local resources to set up his beer selections (thank you Stephanie Roethlisberger from the Bottle Shop) and a special cocktail temptress to concoct that menu (nods to Emily Perkins at Victor Tango).   Continue reading

HG Sply Co Open For Lunch Daily

hg2by Steven Doyle

I recently did a First Look at HG Sply Company, and since then have been back many, many times. I have found myself in the unique Greenville Ave. restaurant not only for the food, but also the cocktails or beer. The restaurant itself is billed as a paleo restaurant, which is basically things hunted and gathered. But had you not known about that portion of the concept you might not give the menu a second thought, other than the fact it is sincerely well crafted food.    Continue reading

First Look: HG Sply Co.

HG Sply Co. opens for dinner service beginning tomorrow, May 21, 2013, and Dallas will finally get a taste of Paleo. After sampling several of the dishes during pre-opening festivities the word ‘diet’ should hardly come into play. The restaurant is made up of ingredients that have actually been hunted and gathered from neighboring farms and ranches, a practice performed by many new, up and coming restaurants in our area.

The restaurant takes advantage of the original charm of the building after having stripped away the sheetrock and years of abuse, exposing a beautiful and rugged patina.         Continue reading

HG Sply Co., located at 2008 Greenville Ave in Dallas, will open to the public on Tuesday, May 21st.  HG Sply Co, created by Elias Pope and his partners Gus Antos, Mark Zahem, Neville Govender, is a neighborhood grill and bar that was influenced by the “back to basics” philosophy of the Paleo diet. “It’s simple,” explains owner Elias Pope, “80% fresh, flavorful food that fuels your day and 20% indulgent ‘cheat day’ food for days that you want to splurge.”

All menu items are natural and/or organic and local when possible, but always from small producing American ranchers.  The chicken is from Windy Meadows (Campbell, Texas), the eggs are from Vital Farms (Austin, Texas); several of the meats are from Local Yocal (McKinney, Texas) or Broken Arrow Ranch (Ingram, Texas) with vegetables and fruits coming from a number of local farmers including Amelia Farms (Bells, Texas) and more.  A specially made 8-seed bread will be delivered fresh daily from Esmeralda’s Bakery in North Dallas.   Continue reading
