Del Frisco Adds Fresh Ideas to Lunch Menu

16-Del-Friscos-Uptown-Dallas3434_LowRes-1-1024x706by Alex Gonzalez

While Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse is one of America’s most luxurious restaurants to have dinner, they also have a great lunch menu filled with delicious light bites. On both weekdays and weekdays, guests of Del Frisco’s can choose from a selection of entrees less heavy than steaks, but equally as hearty and filling.

During lunch, Del Frisco’s offers the same cocktails as they do at dinner, however, the addition of the Mai Tai makes for a sweet, coconut-flavored Hawaiian spirit. Additionally, the Honey Bourbon cocktail is airy and lemon-y, with the aftertaste of a gummy candy. Continue reading

A proper lunch is a wonderful thing, especially when paired with a sparkling Prosecco. When you have worked hard all week, or when you need a few hours of total relaxation,  that is when you make reservations to NonnaContinue reading

Eat Me: Nordstrom’s Crab Mac and Cheese

baz2by Steven Doyle

Most probably do not consider department store dining to be all that exceptional, when in fact we have several hot restaurants tucked away in the back of some of our finer purveyors for skirts and shoes.  We have written about Neiman’s Zodiac more than a few times and they have been treating Dallasites to delicious fare for over 65 years.

Located in NorthPark Center at Nordstrom find a hot little gem called Bazille, which otherwise is known as the grill. There you will find delicious sandwiches, soups, pizzas, roasted fish, steaks and hearty pasta dishes. There are also delicate spa foods to be found for those with lighter appetites.  Continue reading

Oishii In Dallas For Lunch Today

by Steven Doyle

There are certain surprises that we stumble across each day, if we are so lucky. Today was one of those days. I had a rare lunch with a really sweet friend and she chose Oishii on Wycliff in Dallas that is located in the shopping center between the Tollway and Maple.  I enjoy my trips to this restaurant, as the menu is vast enough to keep me excited.

We sat at the sushi bar this afternoon catching up on the latest news of the day and she was thumbing through the sushi and sashimi choices. I was looking through the menu fast and furious as I had something particular on my mind for lunch. It was at that moment we both looked up from our menus and said nearly simultaneously — soft shell crab. She said they had the best in town, and I just happened to have a hankering for crab (per usual).    Continue reading

Beau Nash For A Lovely Repast

beau1.jpegby Steven Doyle

For me Beau Nash in the late 80’s was a siren song, a sultry tune tapped out on a grand piano. The cavernous room with hideaways and a bar that left no secret untold. A perfect perch to gaze on the beautifuls that ran rampant in Dallas. The stories are best kept secret, although there is no shame. It was a time of caviar and champagne, celebrated to full contempt in a cherished manner.  Continue reading

Oak Serving Lunch And You Won’t Want To Miss A Bite

by Steven Doyle

We announced back in November that Oak, that fabulous Design District restaurant, was back to serving lunches under executive chef Brian Zenner. Zenner is the chef responsible for for honing the restaurant that opened in 2011, but sort of lost balance over the past year. Zenner had originally been hired at Oak, but was later sequestered to that beautiful little Uptown hot spot, Belly and Trumpet as their execu-chef. There Zenner rocked our world with innovation unlike anything that has been seen on that section of McKinney Avenue, and possibly never will see again due to the lackluster enthusiasm or superior cuisine in Uptown.

Chef Zenner has this wonderful background that lends itself to a canvass such as Oak.  He was born in Thailand, but also lived in Dubai and London, giving this chef a well rounded perspective on how we should be dining. The chef developed his skills working in Portland and in Austin before making his way to Dallas where he had a stint at the Mansion on Turtle Creek just before being recruited as Chef de Cuisine at Oak under opening chef Jason Maddy.    Continue reading
