The meat Mecca of Dallas is without a doubt, Knife located in the Highland Dallas located just off Central Expressway at Mockingbird. This is the love-child of chef John Tesar who has elevated the steak experience, and the results are precious.
The menu is dotted with a whole host of steaks ranging in price from the very affordable, to the more exotic and a bit pricey. However, the latter comes in giant slabs and sliced for easy sharing, so the cost per person is actually as easy to swallow as the dry aged beef. Continue reading

Perry’s Famous Pork Chop

Frisco is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, predicted to outsize Plano in the 2020s. One needs little confirmation of the big-city intentions than a visit to the new Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille just opened in Stonebriar Centre (on the east side of Parkwood just south of Gaylord Pkwy. Google maps wrongly shows it north of Warren Parkway for some reason). Continue reading

Last week we checked out YO Ranch Steakhouse in downtown’s West End. This nearly forgotten side of Dallas actually has a few remaining and decent restaurants. Recently we had a lovely dinner with out of town guests at The Palm for a larger than life lobster dinner, and Ellen’s Southern Kitchen, all nestled together as if they were protecting one another.
The fact is these restaurants stay quite busy without an influx of local traffic. These are frequented more by visitors to Dallas and conventioneers. Gone are the crazy days of the 90’s where hoards of locals and visitors alike trafficked the streets in search of frozen margaritas and giant haunches of beef, but instead the area is walk-able, quiet and safe.
This is why YO Ranch does so well exactly where it resides. They do an enormous job of providing the weary traveler a slice of Texas and a nicely grilled slab of cow. They also host plenty of parties, both wedding and corporate in the adjacent barn. Yes, YO has a real barn reassembled from the actual 69,000 acre Texas Hill Country YO Ranch. Continue reading

Last night I attended a little fete at one of my favorite steakhouses in Dallas, SĒR Steak + Spirits. If you read craveDFW very often you have seen our discussions on the type of beef (Wagyu) and the chef (the impressive young Anthony Van Camp). Sēr is tops our beef charts for a few reasons; the unpretentious wine list, the fantastic bar, and a breath-taking view of the city. Oh, then there is the food.
I suppose we should always keep our eye on the prize, and last night we blazed through a few incredible dishes, including some plump and briny Wellfleet’s and a beautiful charcuterie and cheese board. We also shared with our table an incredible plate of foie torchon. The torchon had a delightful cognac character that made the evening so very special and festive. Continue reading
