Dallas Hale was in rare form last night as he hosted a variety of guests to the pre-opening of his newest Shell Shack restaurant located on Henderson Avenue in Dallas which replaces the now shuttered McKinney Avenue location.
Guests were treated to a sampling of the menu which has not changed from its previous location, but the size of the building is noticeably large. It occupies the building which was the Mellow Mushroom which lasted in the location for a mere few months. Continue reading

Without a doubt, crab is to be on the short list of what to order. But it is nearing crawfish season, and even though we are told they are not the largest we will find, those are coming once the weather stabilizes and they are large enough now to enjoy.

Think mid-March, around St. Pat’s Day for the best crop. Consider that the luck of the Irish. Continue reading
