Horn & Hardart was once the world’s largest restaurant chain, serving 750,000 people a day. What was once considered high-tech is actually from an era long past, filled with rich romanticism. Audrey Meadows worked at one in the film “That Touch of Mink”, and Joan Crawford leered longingly at a slice of a patron’s pie in “Sadie McKee”. It was the Automat, and was extremely popular in northern states with the first introduced in Philadelphia in 1902 near Independence Hall.

Horn & Hardt Automats became so popular that they spread quickly, landing in Manhattan in 1912. These were homes to the disenfranchised of the industrial age, and were met hungrily by ad-men who hung monikers on the new-style restaurants such as “Try it! You’ll Like It!”, “New Method of Lunching”, and “Less Work for the Mother”.  Continue reading

We will be visiting Dallas area neighborhoods in the coming weeks to ferret out the very best cuisine by sections of real estate.

What’s Eating Your Phone?

Food-photoby Steven Doyle

I get out quite a bit, and sometimes do not have my trusty Sony camera with me, so like most I will use my iPhone to snap a few photos for Facebook, or to remind me of something later. Generally this has to do with dining or tippling. I thought it might be fun to pull off a few photos from the phone and share those today in a bit are reviving and call  What’s Eating Your Phone?

Remember, these are taken with a phone and not of superior quality. If you have a cool photo on your phone, send it our way to steven@cravedfw.com, we might just have some cool prize waiting for you. Or not.   Continue reading

mr-creosote1by Steven Doyle

Some may already know that I am spending the Winter in Ruidoso, New Mexico for several reasons. I am helping a friend open a cafe (more on that as it progresses), to finish a book on chili, and to ski. So far I have done very little of each of these but it looks promising.

I continue to write craveDFW with stored up stories and help from some terrific contributors who are eager to try out new places in my stead. But I am missing things in my little ski town. I am missing quite a bit. Let’s take a look at what you initially long for once you leave town for a bit. I will add to the list as the month progresses I am sure.

How about a look at the 75 things I miss the most about Dallas, besides some of you. I do have one beer, one cocktail and one person on the list that makes this so much more fun. What would you miss?
