A Dozen Wonderful Pizzas in Dallas That Are Not Neapolitan

by Steven Doyle

We have been in search of the best pizza in Dallas but with a single hitch– not Neapolitan style. We have witnessed an onslaught of pizza being brought to the forefront and most of the new spots in Dallas are of the Neapolitan variety. There will be even more of this style of pizza coming, and that is fantastic. We love this, but what are some of the best non-Neapolitan pizzas in the Dallas area? Glad you asked.

Here is a list of a few of our favorites in no particular order. Peruse our list and offer your favorites. And for the best Neapolitan-style pizza? Stay tuned, we are dining out way through that scene as we write.     Continue reading

What’s Eating Your Phone?

phoneby Steven Doyle

Each week we ask the question, “What’s Eating Your Phone”? This is where we all can join in on the foodie fun and send in your latest dining photo that has you all jazzed. These are not necessarily limited to dining out, it can be from that last dinner party. And don’t think we discriminate against libations. Send in your favorite cocktail photo, too.

To be included in a future edition of What’s Eating Your Phone, send those photos to me at steven@cravedfw.com.  A brief description and location would be super helpful. Here are this week’s selections:   Continue reading

White Truffles Have Arrived At Nonna

white truffleby Joey Stewart

Combine one of the best foods on the planet with one of the best restaurants in Dallas and what do you get? One of the best dishes in the city made by one of our best chefs.

Chef / Owner Julian Barsotti’s shipment of Northern Italian White Truffles arrived on Wednesday, and he wasted no time incorporating them into a rich, decadent dish of handmade, delicate pasta. His “Tagliolini with White Truffles” includes a sauce made from Fontina cheese, butter, milk, and egg yolks, along with a “red cow” parmigiano, or Parmigiano Vacche Rosse, which has a higher butterfat content than the typical white or black coated breed. At 36 bucks, the price stings a bit, but so many establishments in Dallas price their best dish at $45 and above that it doesn’t feel unreasonable. Especially since you get a full 3 ounces 3 grams of the shaved fungus on each plate. Get it while you can.    Continue reading

Celebrate Julian Barsotti Day

by Steven Doyle

I would like to pronounce this Julian Barsotti Day and suggest hitting up both of his locations in Dallas today.

First, Nonna is  the acclaimed restaurant in Highland Park located off Lemmon Avenue and Loma Alto in Dallas.  The man takes great strides in making superb, fresh Italian cuisine and is never open for lunch — except for Fridays. I might suggest taking a few pals and grabbing his white clam pizza or one of the fresh pasta dishes.   Continue reading

First Look: Carbone’s

by Steven Doyle

Yesterday Julian Barsotti opened his latest concept, Carbone’s which is located just next to Nosh on Oak Lawn in Dallas. Carbone’s compliments Barsotti’s Italian restaurant Nonna extremely well and features much of the fresh pastas, cheeses and sauces that he creates daily at the restaurant. At Carbone’s you may dine-in, but you can also buy the various components for your very own  Barsotti dinner at home.

In addition to fresh sauces and pastas, you will also find remarkable hand-made meats and salumi.    Continue reading
