There are these triggers that set off imagery of a holiday season past. These can vary from delicious scents such as your favorite Christmas pie, the wafting trail of a roasting pheasant or the blast of fragrance from the tiny pine cone found on your tree as you begin dressing it for the season. There are musical triggers as well. Hearing the first Christmas tune when it actually becomes seasonal proper that lifts you with the spirit of the season can be powerful, as are the visualizations such as seeing the jolly man engaging a wide-eyed child filled with hope, and for us… a large platter of cocktail shrimp from TJ’s Seafood Market. There is also nothing more divine that a New Year’s platter or to from our favorite fishmonger. Continue reading

The taste of Oysters can start a lively debate, but if you are a serious bivalve eater you know that Dallas has dozens of spots serving some of the best in the world. With over three hundred varieties in the US it’s one of the most diverse foods you’ll ever eat. Do you prefer the briny taste of east coast oysters, or the sweeter ones from the west? How about oysters from the south?
That’s an old school train of thought that we don’t produce great oysters in Texas or the Southeast. Regardless, here’s a list, in no particular order, of some of the top spots in Big D to get your fix on. We won’t list any spots that “rinse” their oysters before they serve them.
