OSO Food & Wine Will Fast Become Your New Favorite Neighborhood Eatery

oso5by Steven Doyle

The name Michael Cox may be unfamiliar with the average diner in Dallas, but you can be assured they have all been touched with his past accomplishments. The restaurateur helped give Central Market their prominence in this market, was CEO of the M Crowd (Mi Cocina, Mercury and Taco Diner), worked with Stephan Pyles.  Cox resigned as CEO of M Crowd almost a year ago to open his own restaurant, and judging from our experience he has an instant his on his hands.

Opening OSO Food & Wine with super chef Kelly Hightower almost two months ago, they both have enjoyed a steady build of clientele. The location is a bit precarious, hidden in the same shopping center as the Tom Thumb at Preston and Forest to the northeast, but once found, you will discover a treasure of a menu and wine list. The menu is a bit short with specials created by Hightower each night. The chef tells us that he has already cycled the menu once, and plans on constant changes, keeping it fresh with seasonal offerings.    Continue reading

The latest addition to Trinity Groves, the sparkling new area to the west of Dallas and across the Hunt-Hill Bridge, opens tonight. The list of dining options are growing at a steady pace, and the latest is fairly spectacular. Just ours from now Resto Gastro Bistro swings open and I think you are going to like this one. Think Modern American cuisine that implements French, Japanese techniques. Think delicious.

The menu that chef DJ Quintanilla has concocted is clean and bright, featuring dishes such as crab cakes with roasted artichokes, a red chili honey cured filet with sour cream potato croquettes and  veal cheeks with chive pommes puree, roasted white asparagus and royal trumpet mushrooms.  The dessert options are also particularly wonderful. Cocktails are not an afterthought at Resto. The menu was designed by Dallas libations wunderkind Eddie “Lucky”  Campbell. You will most definitely want to sip on the brilliant shishito pepper infused drink that has an ever so slight tongue tingle to it.    Continue reading
