Shuttered: Sfuzzi Dallas and Le Taco

Sfuzzi in Uptown and Le Taco are both closed.

Sfuzzi seemed to have a difficult time reinventing itself and blew through a handful of chefs quickly, including Avner Samuels. Le Taco, which was once Scotch and Sausage, also had an identity crisis. Oddly enough  Scotch and Sausage was a fantastic concept and put out a great product, as did Le Taco.  No doubt it was a matter of finding its audience that took down the taco restaurant.  Continue reading

Naan Sushi on Cedar Springs Road in Uptown has closed and the huge, sprawling, multi-roomed space is now Sfuzzi relived.

Most of the discussion was hazed with inaccuracies, but what stood out as fact is that Sfuzzi’s last stand is tonight.

What I will personally miss most  is the bacon and egg pizza pictured above.    Continue reading

The big surprise in Las Colinas is the major revamp of the menu from the original Sfuzzi in Uptown. Brad Woy, Carey Edmund and the rest of the team have done a bang up job in creating a concise menu that makes you want to try every dish.

First of all the restaurant is huge.  Over 10,000 square feet huge. It is well laid out, with a beautifully appointed main dining room, killer bar, private rooms for corporate events and some really nice patios. It’s all first class

Growing up in New York and eating the best Italian food in the world (sorry Boston and Philly) I have had a tough time, a really tough time, finding an Italian place I want to go back to.   Continue reading
