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 →
Mac and Cheese lovers – rejoice! Wednesday, July 14 marks National Macaroni and Cheese Day, and Dallasites can celebrate the cheesy, warm holiday with famous steakhouse Al Biernat’s and their signature Mac & Cheese comfort dish.
Available at both the Al Biernat’s North and Oak Lawn locations, the decadent Mac & Cheese dish includes a mix of signature cheeses topped with crunchy breadcrumbs to create a gooey, savory treat perfect for sharing or not sharing. The gourmet side dish starts at $12 and for an additional cost, guests can choose to elevate the creamy pasta dish with three ounces of fresh lobster meat.
Al’s signature Mac & Cheese makes for the perfect side dish to compliment one of the restaurant’s famous meat or seafood entrees. The chefs at Al’s suggest trying their famous side dish alongside their Filet Mignon, Prime Rib or Crab Stuffed Lemon Sole, served with sautéed spinach and lobster butter sauce.

Monarch, the highly anticipated wood-fired, modern Italian restaurant led by two-time Michelin-starred Chef Danny Grant has been open for two weeks and is already the hardest reservation to score in town. We were lucky enough to grab one at their opening hour of five o’clock, and here’s our first look.

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 the 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 →
