The Rodriguez family is certainly one of the most successful and include Mico Rodriguez’ ultra famous Micocina and more recently Mr Mesero and Mesero (although similar in name, both unique), and his mother’s very famous Mia’s on Lemmon to name a few.

A fairly new doggery to the Dallas landscape that has been a proven concept for eight years which first opened in Pasadena made its entry this past year and has been building a strong following in Richardson.

The team behind The Woolworth open their newest concept Smithy at 2927 N Henderson Ave for dinner service tonight.

Smithy encourages guests to mingle, share, live and dine all while sharing in the experience of crafted, modern, but approachable food and drink.

Opened for dinner with lunch and brunch planned for the near future, Chef Ronald Von Hatten defines his offerings as shared plates, and unique eats. The menu flirts with global influences but ingredients you will know. Co-owner Brandon Luke says, “Influences such as Asian, French, Mexican and American will keep you guessing on what to order or share. Our menu keeps guest favorites but rotates seasonal items three times a year. This allows us to keep our offerings interesting and follow trends during the year.” Continue reading

For nearly thirty years Adelmo Banchetti has been filling the hearts and bellies of Dallasites at his iconic Knox area restaurant Adelmo’s, now relocated to Inwood Village. The man remains a stalwart in the industry whose name is instantly recognizable for great food, greater portions with an easy going price tag that has guests returning again and again.

Adelmo was born to serve in the restaurant industry beginning at 16 years old when he moved from Florence, Italy to Brussels to bus tables for a decade, moving to work cruise ships and eventually settling at Cornell University for formal training. Moving to Dallas proved his greatest effort working at restaurant luminaries such as Villa Buggati, the Pyramid Room at the Fairmont, the illustrious Beau Nash, and the Mansion on Turtle Creek before opening his eponymous Adelmo’s in 1989.  Continue reading

Pazzo Bringing Joy To Uptown

The word for “crazy” in Italian is Pazzo and Pazzo in Uptown is now known for a bit of craziness. Late night people know Pazzo as a superb club, located in the back and occupies as much space as the front of the house. This is where you will find the ultra chic, renowned DJ’s and bottle service that packs the house many nights of the week.

The space up front, all unsuspecting of the craziness that goes on behind the hidden doors of the club is this elegant and lovely restaurant, decidedly American-Italian, that serves up insanely good food and cocktails.  Continue reading
