Shell Shack opened its Uptown Dallas location in late 2013. And now, that flagship restaurant, which has since spawned five others, is packing up and moving to Henderson Avenue.

Eddie Campbell Buys Standard Pour

standard3by Steven Doyle

When the investors of Standard Pour decided to turn over the keys to their bar, the name that topped the list to sell to was Dallas’ perennial barman, Eddie “Lucky” Campbell. His own bar is situated just feet down the road, the very successful, but tiny, Parliament. The actual transaction took place January 1st of this new year and Campbell has big ideas to take the extremely popular uptown restaurant/ bar to the next level.

The thrust of these ideas begin with happy hour, something Campbell is quite good at. Look for a new happy hour cocktail menu that will no doubt tantalize and includes 13 new drinks, plus beer, wine and champagnes.

Nazca Is A South American Dining Wonder

10 - Salmon Tacos Nazcaby Steven Doyle

There was a bit of fervor in the office when we heard there was a second Nazca Kitchen in Dallas. The new location in Uptown is a much larger and fanciful version of its original on Walnut Hill and 75.

South American cuisine can mean so much, especially with its European influences. This allows for a broad and interesting menu. The beautiful interior was designed by  Hatsumi Kuzuu who also designed FT33. Continue reading
