Parliament Luckyby Steven Doyle

We just spoke to Eddie Campbell who owns and operates The Clover Club, Standard Pour and Parliament. There has been  some  major adjustments, and improvements at The Clover Club, which is this Uptown Dallas  send-up of the original Bellevue-Stratford Hotel’s Clover Club from the late 1800’s Philadelphia social club which attracted movers and shakers of the day, including moneyed bankers and intellects of the time not too unlike the Midtown Manhattan Algonquin which also attracted a similar heady crowd.

In 1979, the Perry family opened its first restaurant: a modest meat market in Southeast Houston called Perry’s Butcher Shop and Deli.

PL8 Is An Interesting Blend Of Art And Food

A visit to the old Fat Rabbit location, now home to a very upgraded and very stylized adult restaurant PL8 that seems to wish to break the pub feel of Uptown that appears to be adulting more and more with each new concept that moves in. PL8 is a dizzying malange of menu items that may have you questioning the direction of the restaurant until you learn that the imported chef Long has worked across the globe and is adept at cuisines such as Malaysian, Indian, Mediterranean and much more. This reflects on the menu and once tasted you will get it.

The atmosphere is grown up and we were told that they are no longer open late nights, so this fits in with the very bright look of the white wood floors and emphasis on local art, which all is for sale. Think of Pl8 as a galleria with a cool menu.   Continue reading

The Uptown building won’t go to waste, however, as Shell Shack founder Dallas Hale will be opening a new poke concept called Poke Go Go. Continue reading
