Where to Dine in Lake Highlands – Pt 1

VG Doubleby Joey Stewart

While much of Dallas lies flat, the northeast Dallas collection of subdivisions known as Lake Highlands offers a unexpected setting of hills, valleys, woods and streams. Most of the area is served by the Richardson Independent School District, which makes it an enticing place to live for parents who are looking for an alternative to DISD or would rather not pay to send their little ones to private schools.

However, within the LH borders it can be a challenge to find restaurants offering the variety of choices of the surrounding areas. Sure, one can head a few miles west to Preston Hollow, south to Casa Linda, or directly north of 635 for a plethora of options, but for those who wish to stay within Lake Highlands “proper,” we’ve compiled a short list for you to enjoy. Some of you may already be in the know, but we bet there are a few here you have never thought to try. We will spotlight these a few at a time, and here are today’s picks. Click on the individual photos to expand. Continue reading

Eat Me: Bone-In Ribeye at Bob’s Steak and Chop House

bobsby Steven Doyle

Years before Bob’s Steak and Chop House went location happy, back when Bob Sambol actually owned the steakhouse, we asked Bob what was up with the carrot. There was no crazy revelation, it dated back to his childhood where his mother made a version of this glazed carrot. Bob also mentioned it made sense. Would you rather be a bone-in ribeye garnished with kale or some other green inedible, or a massive phallus-sized sweet carrot?   Continue reading

Ziziki’s Serving Romance Since 1994

ziziki4by Steven Doyle

Since 1994 Ziziki’s located on Travis has been a suitor for romantic evenings, fine wines and delicious Mediterranean food. It has been cause for affection on first dates then and continues its tradition with cozy tables set in dim lights and subtle service.

Plates filled with Greek favorites entice couples in a space carved out with soft, breezy music languidly filling the crisp Spring air on the patio. Lovely plates of artichoke hummus and a spicy hipiti entice. Panko crusted goat cheese disks lay smiles on faces seen from across its room. Keftedes, Greek lamb meatballs served with a plum tomato sauce, raise a symphony of tidings, and guests are pleased.   Continue reading

Best Bloody Mary In Dallas And Beyond

bm1by Steven Doyle

Most of the best cocktails have a rumor surrounding Ernest Hemingway, and that is a legend we would like to believe and it is the premise today with our look at the Bloody Mary and her delicious origins.

Fernand Petiot claimed to have invented the Bloody Mary in 1921, well before any of the later claims such as Life Magazine in 1942. He was working at the New York Bar in Paris at the time, which later became Harry’s New York Bar, a frequent Paris hangout for Ernest Hemingway and other American expatriates. Harry’s Bar also claims to have created numerous other classic cocktails, including the White Lady and the Side Car.   Continue reading

A Revisit To An Old Friend: The Grill

DSC00884by Steven Doyle

In 1984, The Grill on the Alley, located steps from Rodeo Drive in the heart of Beverly Hills, opened its doors and became and became a huge success. It earned The Grill an international reputation for quality and consistency. The three founders developed a concept that still draws fans worldwide. The Grill today continues its traditions in major United States cities, including Dallas, by offering an extensive selection of superior quality classic American food served by dedicated professionals in a sophisticated, yet warm and unpretentious atmosphere.

Today the Grill continues its tradition of quality cocktails, an extensive wine list and fun plays on American standard dishes such as the massive chicken pot pie, sushi rolls, large cuts of beef and so much more.

Recently we had an opportunity to dine at The Grill, which is located at the Galleria in Dallas, and reacquaint ourselves with some of the dishes they have introduced on their Spring menu.   Continue reading
