More news from Chef DAT as he makes his way back from his holiday that included nine states and seven underground dinners. DAT has gathered some new ideas and a fresh perspective and will share the recipes and stories of the trip at a special dinner this weekend.

The underground dinner will feature six courses for $70 and is BYOB as usual. We have the full menu below. From the looks of the menu it would appear that DAT picked up an immersion circulator, always a fun gadget to have in a kitchen.      Continue reading

Ryan Barnett’s Underground Euphorium Goes French

by Steven Doyle

Taking my own recommendation, I joined a band of merry diners at the newest of the underground chef dinners offered at the not-so-secret location in Deep Ellum on the corner of Malcolm X and Elm.
