Al Biernat’s Celebrating Mac & Cheese Day

Mac and Cheese lovers – rejoice! Wednesday, July 14 marks National Macaroni and Cheese Day, and Dallasites can celebrate the cheesy, warm holiday with famous steakhouse Al Biernat’s and their signature Mac & Cheese comfort dish.

Available at both the Al Biernat’s North and Oak Lawn locations, the decadent Mac & Cheese dish includes a mix of signature cheeses topped with crunchy breadcrumbs to create a gooey, savory treat perfect for sharing or not sharing. The gourmet side dish starts at $12 and for an additional cost, guests can choose to elevate the creamy pasta dish with three ounces of fresh lobster meat.

Al’s signature Mac & Cheese makes for the perfect side dish to compliment one of the restaurant’s famous meat or seafood entrees. The chefs at Al’s suggest trying their famous side dish alongside their Filet Mignon, Prime Rib or Crab Stuffed Lemon Sole, served with sautéed spinach and lobster butter sauce.

Ocean Prime Still in its Prime

The last time CraveDFW featured Ocean Prime we showcased the huge Red King Crab legs that had just been flown in from Bristol Bay. As this was over two years ago, we thought it was time to head back and see how it’s keeping up with all the competing seafood spots that have opened in Dallas since that report.

Ocean Prime Uptown is one of sixteen locations across the states and boasts a menu that features items like sushi and poke, indulgent seafood entrees, prime steaks, desserts, signature cocktails, and a Wine Spectator-honored wine list.

The dark, retro dining room is still packed with well-heeled guests, the service is stellar from start to finish, and each dish we tasted was expertly cooked. In short, it hasn’t missed a step. We chose to sit in the more relaxed and bright “Terrace,” which allows for a casual dining experience.
