This April, Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse, will kick off its “Tutored Tasting” wine series. Led by the restaurant’s new award-winning wine director, Jeff Carlson, this new wine series puts an approachable and fun spin on the traditional wine pairing dinner.
With a longstanding goal to “de-mystify wine” for guests, Carlson takes a more casual approach to his tastings. Each event features a different theme, with the first highlighting something we can all relate to: “Tax Relief Wine Tasting.” Continue reading

We do love our seafood equally as much as a good steak. This is why we were more than excited to learn what John Tesar (who we hear will be on the next Top Chef, again) has up his sleeves for Dallas.
It might be best just to let you hear his own words: Continue reading

How The Grill on the Alley escaped us in the past is beyond our comprehension. The restaurant located just outside the Dallas Galleria has quietly been serving up some classic dishes, along with some of the best steaks and seafood that can be found in Dallas for the past 9 years.
General Manager and chef Daniel Winans oversees the restaurant with a careful eye and strolls the room often to ensure each guest is comfortable. The restaurant, which originally hails from Beverly Hills, is a throw- back to more refined times when big dishes were served with expert care. Continue reading

We checked out Sēr at the Hilton Anatole for their final pre-opening tasting. This is the restaurant opening October 1, 2012 and is the replacement of Nana Grill. We are happy to report that the view is still as spectacular, if not better since there will actually be more space alongside the window that overlooks a near panoramic view of the Dallas skyline.
When you enter the restaurant you will notice that the space is now more open, with little to distinguish the bar area from the actually dining room. The space flows freely as the champagne cocktails did that evening.

I had the good fortune to dine at Craft Dallas in the W Hotel earlier this week. I was planning on saving the photos and run an au revoir story the week they close their doors in August, but I am thinking I should entice, no, incite you to stop in for a final meal at this wonderful Dallas restaurant.
When I was working at the Observer’s City of Ate I interviewed Chef Jeff Harris who is now at Bolsa in Oak Cliff. Then I was able to check out the kitchen, which is as massive as you might think a hotel kitchen should be. There is something magical to me to experience the backbone of a restaurant up close and I am always personally drawn to the kitchen when accessable. Continue reading

Starting today and extending through the month of April, Sullivan’s Steakhouse will be running a Steak and Cake special where you can get an 8 oz. filet, a 4 oz. crab cake and either a wedge or Caesar salad, all for $39. I was invited to come check this out.
Sullivan’s is more like 3 different establishments under one roof: a bar/patio, a dining room and a lounge called Ringside. I showed up a bit early so I could get a feel for the restaurant and the bar was popping. Their signature cocktail is the Knockout, a martini made from Smirnoff Orange Vodka infused with fresh pineapple with an orange twist. I was worried that it would be too sweet but it tasted exactly like fresh cut pineapple with a punch. This will go great sitting out on the patio, listening to the live music. But I am here for the food. Continue reading
