Dallas will have a Full Circle moment this summer when Full Circle Tavern (FCT) hosts its’ grand ‘RE-‐Opening’ extravaganza at its new location at 6341 La Vista in Dallas, which translates to another awesome excuse to have a party with a guy on stilts making balloon animals, lots of drink & food specials, a cool DJ, door prizes and other stuff they will throw in for fun.
East Dallas residents, Jennifer Bonner and Lara Whittington, also owners of EdiblEnvy Catering, bring Full Circle Tavern from South Dallas to East Dallas with the same modern gastropub vibe that is warm and relaxed with hearty menu selections and approachable beer and bar offerings.

The heart of the home, the place where everyone gathers – we all know it as the kitchen. On November 1, that evolves into Kitchen, a new mini food hall and takeout market concept from Dallas restaurateur Scott Jones. While concepts may rotate from time to time, Kitchen launches with Jack’s Modern Southern Kitchen and Dallas Meatball Kitchen as its first two featured menus. Kitchen is located at 6041 Oram in East Dallas and offers dining, takeout and delivery options for those who crave the taste of homemade.
“We want people to come in and congregate, and enjoy a variety of things,” said Jones, who is well known for creating acclaimed concepts such as Screen Door, Gourmet a Go-Go and the reboot of the beloved Dallas Italian restaurant, Café Italia. “This has all the warm feelings of being in your mom’s kitchen, but no one is offended if you just eat and run.” Continue reading →
This new hot dog craze is really catchy. If you are able to make a fantastic and snappy wiener made from an all-natural casing, a fresh baked roll and plenty of interesting topping, you will make a success of this whole doggery thing. Jerry’s Wood-Fired Dogs did just that. This is an unpretentious hot dog Mecca that is light on the wallet and high on truly good flavors.
The menu can be a bit overwhelming, so perhaps it is best to stick to the basics on first pass. Oh, once you have gone there will be multiple laps, your fascination for the wood-fired dog won’t allow anything but just that. Continue reading →

As the Lakewood community continues its growth a few new and familiar Dallas area restaurants have staked claim on some highly visible real estate. Interesting enough the new restaurants are being careful to keep things interesting enough for the neighborhood, and even giving the new spots a warm enough feel that will give an impression that the restaurants have always belonged to their new digs.
There are two particular burger outlets that will give pause to the local fan. Liberty Burger should be open very soon and co-owner Mariel Street is staying clear of any semblance of being a chain. Even though there are currently only two of the burger restaurants, we know there are plenty on the way including the Dallas Farmers Market. Continue reading →
