Late August we shared the fact that Wicked Po Boy closed in Preston Center. Chi and Joey Le, owners of the groovy NOLA inspired restaurant, which was located at 6030 Luther Lane, were suffering through the fact that there wasn’t a big enough dinner crowd to sustain the shop even though lunches proved to be highly successful. Now we catch rumors that a retooling is underway to bring pho to the center. Continue reading

Chi and Joey Le, owners of Wicked Po Boy located at 6030 Luther Lane in Preston Center have shuttered with a sign that explains they are remodeling just months after opening the restaurant in April. Inside sources say that luncheon service was terrific but lacked a proper dinner crowd that would help sustain an expensive piece of property.
A remodel will ensue but we have been told there be a re-concepting to capture evening clientele. Look for an announcement as early as next week.
One of our favorite fast casual Indian spots Masala Wok just signed a lease for a 2,465-square-foot space at Preston Center in Dallas. The retail center is located at the southwest quadrant of West Northwest Highway and Preston Road. This is near Rathbun’s Blue Plate, Spoon and Hopdoddy Burger Bar. Masala is known for its quickie orders of Chicken Tikka Masala, some Chinese wokkery and a fine version of naan. Masala Wok is scheduled to open in October.
This is a great addition to the fast growing foodie neighborhood.
A new Capriotti Sandwich Shop opened today in Preston Center, 6112 Luther Lane in Dallas. Look for fresh subs, sandwiches and salads. The restaurant gets high praise for their vegetarian options such as their cheesesteak and a “turkey” sandwich.
Specialty sandwiches include The Bobbie, which is their best seller made with fresh roasted turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and mayonnaise. One of our favorites includes the SlawBeJoe made with homemade roast beef, provolone, Russian dressing, and Cole slaw.
Hours are Monday through Friday from 7am to 9pm, Saturday 8am to 9pm, and Sunday 8am to 7pm.
The sub chain Capriotti’s is moving into the hot bed for restaurants in the Dallas area, Preston Center. The sandwich shop which has locations in Plano and Downtown Dallas will move into the old Extreme Pizza location located at 6112 Luther Lane in University Park.
Kent Rathbun never does anything half way, it is truly one of those ‘go big or go home’ moments when dining at any of the chef’s restaurants. This certainly holds true to Rathbun’s Blue Plate located in Dallas restaurant epicenter Preston Center located near Northwest Highway on Preston.
Just over a year ago Rathbun promoted Jennifer Newbold to command the kitchen at Blue Plate and she has been knocking out home runs each night. Each night during the week Newbold is plating up special dishes that has the neighborhood in a frenzy. Monday night’s enjoy BBQ which is actually a Rathbun family favorite that dates back to his childhood. The BBQ at Rathbun’s some of the city’s finest. Continue reading

Under the reigns of chef Eric DiStefano, Ocho Kitchen and Cocktails has morphed into a fantastic take on the New Mexico plate. His staff roasts fresh Anaheim chiles each day to create these full flavored dishes not too unlike he does at his restaurants in Santa Fe. I tried some of the menu when the restaurant opened just a few short months ago in Preston Center near Northwest Highway, and had a chance to sample the majority of them again this past weekend.
There have been several tweaks, and a few items removed (please bring back the lobster pancakes) and now the restaurant is snuggling into a familiar taste that is obviously bringing guests back each evening. They started brunch service three weeks ago, and that menu looks equally delicious. Continue reading
