Craving Seafood? So Are We!

seafood-tower-pappasby Steven Doyle

There is no doubt that the people at Crave enjoy great seafood, and what a marvelous time of year to enjoy delicious creatures from the sea. Although none of us are Catholic, the lenten season gives us great reason to jump on the wagon to good food. From briny oysters to sweet crabs of all sorts and so much more.

With a great craving today for seafood we wish to reminisce over nine great dishes we have had recently that involved seafood. Indulge us. Continue reading

A Peek Down The Grill On The Alley

by Steven Doyle

How The Grill on the Alley escaped us in the past is beyond our comprehension. The restaurant located just outside the Dallas Galleria has quietly been serving up some classic dishes, along with some of the best steaks and seafood that can be found in Dallas for the past 9 years.

The restaurant, which originally hails from Beverly Hills, is a throw- back to more refined times when big dishes were served with expert care.       Continue reading

Flying Fish is a Catch

flying_fish_addison.0.jpgby Steven Doyle

The Flying Fish looks and feels like it has been in business since the post war era but in fact Shannon Wynne designed and opened his first casual seafood restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2002. The Flying Fish serves catfish, shrimp, oysters, crawfish and other seafood. Wynne expanded the restaurant throughout North Texas with locations in Addison, Dallas, Garland, Fort Worth, and Arlington. There is also a location in Memphis, Tennessee. All equally as tacky as the very first location in the land of Clinton’s, but so much more savory. Continue reading

The Boiling Crab Wait Is Well Worth The Prize

We are still enjoying the seafood season as the crawfish continue to grow larger, and the crabs are ever so sweet. Boiling Crab in Dallas near Garland seems to always be busy with lines starting at least thirty minutes before opening, and on super nice days as much as an hour with guests toting lawn chairs and sipping mystery drinks as they eagerly await a mess of crawfish, a myriad of crabs, shrimp and even lobster steamed in a bag packed full of seasoning.

Here the phrase is “The Whole Shabang” which means all the spices in the house mixed with butter. This is the holy grail of boils in Dallas. Continue reading

Dallas Fish Market Adds Raw Bar

Triptow 1 Editedby Steven Doyle   photos by Joey Stewart

It’s no secret that we are fans of Dallas Fish Market and chef Richard Triptow. He is a master in the kitchen and his dishes are pure art. His culinary experience had him working under three chefs at The Mansion: Dean Fearing, John Tesar, and Bruno Davaillon.

“The kitchen under Fearing was a very competitive environment, and most of what I learned about seafood came from Tesar. He took me under his wing and really taught me the styles and techniques that I still use today. Bruno definitely passed along his French influence to me,” Triptow told us. Continue reading
