After several visits to Peasant Pizzeria I now have a new favorite pie in Dallas.

And it is not just the pizza but most items found on the short menu including one of the daily specials. Consider Tuesday where they offer Fennel Crusted Sea Scallops or Thursday where you will find an enormous Veal Chop Milanese. Continue reading

Adelmo’s Still Strong and Thriving After Nearly 30 Years

adelmo1.jpgby Steven Doyle

For nearly thirty years Adelmo Banchetti has been filling the hearts and bellies of Dallasites at his iconic Knox area restaurant Adelmo’s, now relocated to Inwood Village. The man remains a stalwart in the industry whose name is instantly recognizable for great food, greater portions with an easy going price tag that has guests returning again and again.

Adelmo was born to serve in the restaurant industry beginning at 16 years old when he moved from Florence, Italy to Brussels to bus tables for a decade, moving to work cruise ships and eventually settling at Cornell University for formal training. Moving to Dallas proved his greatest effort working at restaurant luminaries such as Villa Buggati, the Pyramid Room at the Fairmont, the illustrious Beau Nash, and the Mansion on Turtle Creek before opening his eponymous Adelmo’s in 1989.  Continue reading

Pazzo Bringing Joy To Uptown

pazzo1aby Steven Doyle

The word for “crazy” in Italian is Pazzo and Pazzo in Uptown is now known for a bit of craziness. Late night people know Pazzo as a superb club, located in the back and occupies as much space as the front of the house. This is where you will find the ultra chic, renowned DJ’s and bottle service that packs the house many nights of the week.

The space up front, all unsuspecting of the craziness that goes on behind the hidden doors of the club is this elegant and lovely restaurant, decidedly American-Italian, that serves up insanely good food and cocktails.  Continue reading

A Christmas Excursion To Grapevine Nets The Best Calamari You Will Ever Savor (And More)

DSC09607by Steven Doyle

It’s that crazy time of year with all the shopping and the packages and the shopping. It is also a fantastic time to gather the family for a super slice of Americana and take in the sites and sounds and flavor of the season. One of our very favorites places to find all this is in Grapevine. The city takes Christmas very seriously, and has a beautiful downtown display of holiday lights, a gorgeous tree in the gazebo and plenty of interesting shops to take in for gifts of all sorts. Grapevine is also a nice destination for restaurants with very few chains to be found, especially on Main Street. This is where we found Napoli’s Cafe, a fun Italian eatery that is serving up some primo cuisine.   Continue reading

Review: Five Creeks Tavern

20151203_190614by Steven Doyle

Five Creeks Tavern in Highland Park Village is located in a space which has had past identity troubles. Those troubles seem to have magically vanished in light of this new Italian hot spot that caters evenly to local families and  single adults alike. The menu is decidedly red checkered table cloth Italian replete with one of the better examples of VPN Neapolitan pizza made in an imported wood burning oven, a slew of pasta dishes where guests can easily mix and match sauces and pasta varieties.   Continue reading
