Review: Roux Bistro

DSC00858by Steven Doyle

You have most likely seen the new restaurant at 4218 Lemmon Ave in Dallas, and caved to caution with thoughts of the unfortunate restaurants that preceded Roux Bistro. And there were some unfortunate concepts that occupied that space such as Tallywackers. Or Lolitas. Or how about Cafe Cancun. Some spaces just have a difficult time with their tenants until something truly wonderful comes along, and that is Roux.

Owned by veteran restaurateur and delightful Greek Theodore Koutsogeorgas Roux has a unique niche in the Dallas market. Call him Theo, his surname might be a bit of trouble for some. And you will see him roam the floor, attending each guest with aplomb. He has been doing this since his days at Goldfinger. I recall Theo from his management work at Beau Nash, and the gentleman has owned his fair share of delightful restaurants, and still owns the Greek spot at Collin Creek.   Continue reading

A Revisit To An Old Friend: The Grill

DSC00884by Steven Doyle

In 1984, The Grill on the Alley, located steps from Rodeo Drive in the heart of Beverly Hills, opened its doors and became and became a huge success. It earned The Grill an international reputation for quality and consistency. The three founders developed a concept that still draws fans worldwide. The Grill today continues its traditions in major United States cities, including Dallas, by offering an extensive selection of superior quality classic American food served by dedicated professionals in a sophisticated, yet warm and unpretentious atmosphere.

Today the Grill continues its tradition of quality cocktails, an extensive wine list and fun plays on American standard dishes such as the massive chicken pot pie, sushi rolls, large cuts of beef and so much more.

Recently we had an opportunity to dine at The Grill, which is located at the Galleria in Dallas, and reacquaint ourselves with some of the dishes they have introduced on their Spring menu.   Continue reading
