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.

This said, there are still many restaurants across the country creating delicious dishes tableside, and certainly to rave reviews. 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

How To Celebrate Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day

by Steven Doyle

God love Jeffrey Yarbrough. Yarborough is one of the strongest supporters of restaurants in Dallas, and when the man decided that there needed to be a holiday that celebrated what should be our state dish, chicken fried steak, he went to Austin to do something about it. This is why every October 26 we celebrate Texas Chicken Fried Steak Day as proclaimed by the Texas Legislature.

For most of us we didn’t need a proclamation, but how fun is it that it is all nice and official like. It sort of mandates the fact that we cannot go the day without sampling at least one platter of gravy soaked fried meat.        Continue reading
