Corral Corrientes 348

grill cookingby Steven Doyle

In a city where meat is king and steakhouses are landing faster than the Bugatti Veyron, it is refreshing to find something a bit out of the ordinary. Meet Corrientes 348, the new Argentinian steakhouse located in the former Stephan Pyles vast location on Ross Avenue.

Argentinians have a fondness for meat, or rather an “asado” or “parrillada.” Meats are cooked on a parilla (grill) while attendees enjoy socializing and drinking wine, typically a Malbec. Parrilla culture is largely about patience and enjoying the company they keep. Staying true to their roots, the restaurant will have a dramatic open flame parilla (custom-made in South America) anchoring the main dining room with 20 seats surrounding it.  Continue reading

Elusive Tableside Service and Where to Find it in Dallas

caesarby Steven Doyle

There is simply nothing more elegant and festive as tableside service. We are talking the classic Caesar Salad tossed in full view of the guest, at their table and with great finesse. It is the definitive dinner and a show that has somewhat fallen from a great many menus across the country. Beyond adding a bit of flair, this and many other tableside presentations also demonstrates a commitment to freshness. What could be more fresh and flavorful than a dessert or salad  finished off right before the diners’ eyes? This said, there are still many restaurants across the country creating delicious dishes tableside, and certainly to rave reviews. Continue reading

Eat Me: Bone-In Ribeye at Bob’s Steak and Chop House

bobsby Steven Doyle

Years before Bob’s Steak and Chop House went location happy, back when Bob Sambol actually owned the steakhouse, we asked Bob what was up with the carrot. There was no crazy revelation, it dated back to his childhood where his mother made a version of this glazed carrot. Bob also mentioned it made sense. Would you rather be a bone-in ribeye garnished with kale or some other green inedible, or a massive phallus-sized sweet carrot?   Continue reading

Dunston’s Still Serving Up Tasty Beef on the Cheap

dunston1by Steven Doyle

Probably not a week goes by that a reader asks where to find a good haunch of beef. We invariably tell them one of the many steakhouses across the Dallas skyline depending on where they live. We love Nick and Sam’s. It could be that they pass out caviar like it was candy, and sincerely… isn’t it? We also love Pappas Brothers in all their wine goodness.

Knife has  some awesome steak values $25 and under. Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House also is a staff favorite, and we love his cigar room. Plus you get Richard Chamberlain, and that always makes for fun evening. We have frequented SER more times than we care to admit (OK, at least 25 times).   Continue reading

Eat Me: The Coconut Cream Pie at Capital Grille

capitalby Steven Doyle

I recently made my way to Capital Grille and was blown away not only by the fare, but the amazing and well-tended service. And the pie.  All I heard that evening from patrons to staff was how amazing this coconut tart adorned with a lush whipped cream was. But to get to this pie you must first take a near Wonkaland of whimsy through their menu, which for several excited diners, including myself,  this was perfectly OK.   Continue reading
