Lunch at Theodore

img_8782by Rhonda Dutton

I have seen six of Wes Anderson’s eight films, so I would say that I’m a fan (and now need to go back and see the remaining two). Therefore, I was so very open to The Theodore’s magic little world in NorthPark Center. Gifted to us by the same cast of characters who brought us Smoke, Bolsa and Bolsa Mercado, Chicken Scratch, The Foundry, and Bar Belmont, The Theodore transports you from modern luxury shopping to a charming world in Wes Anderson’s mind that is also inhabited by Teddy Roosevelt.

This theme is consistently delivered everywhere, even on the menu which feels like it could have been torn from TR’s personal diary.   Continue reading

Review: Gen Korean BBQ House

gen2by Timothy Pham

With various all-you-can-eat Korean barbecue places in the DFW area, LA-based, Gen Korean BBQ House is the newest iteration to open up. Located off of Old Denton and I-35 up in Carrolton diagonally from Ranch 99 and across the highway from H-mart.

Gen brings to DFW its LA flair of modern design and flavoring. Upon walking into the restaurant you’re greeted with the delicious aroma of grilled meat and pleasing view of a restaurant that is well lit with a cool blue glow. The wait can be a bit daunting even during the week, be prepared to wait at least thirty minutes to an hour, I’ve been told that on the weekends it can be up to a two hour wait.   Continue reading

The golden child of our modern pastry chef is the venerable macaron. This is the delicious tiny bite of amazing flavor that has a slight snap that gently relents to a bit of gooey blast of jamminess in its lush interior. The macaron is the toast of Paris and celebrated in tea salons delivering a taste sensation without all the fuss of things like “fat” and “calories”.  The macaron is poised with elegance, sophistication, and a thing of beauty in its seemingly effortless brilliance. The macaron.

The macaron has its birthright from  Italy, brought into this world by Catherine de Medicis in 1533 at the time of her marriage to the Duc d’Orleans who became king of France in 1547 as Henry II. The very name macaron has the same origin as that the word macaroni, meaning fine dough.   Continue reading
