7 Reason’s Eating at Edith’s French Cafe is Essential

  Sauce, mimosas and I’ll go ahead and take ALL of the croissants. Edith’s French Café just gets me. Here are 7 reasons why I can’t no longer live without nearly everything on their menu. P.S., this list could have been much longer.   It’s Beautiful Sunlight simply pours inside this space, which is ironic considering it was once the pretty dark and mediocre seafood restaurant, Rockfish. It’s bright and happy here, which immediately makes you smile and want to gobble down everything. Breakfast is Served all DAY LONG Forking down Ricotta Pancakes with blueberry sausage, berry compote and honey butter at 7 PM on a Wednesday is a thing…

Shell Shack Makes Henderson Home

Shell Shack – 4 Stars Seasoning soaked fingers are getting easier to come by. Shell Shack Uptown closed their doors recently and reopened a bigger, shellier space on Henderson Ave. This is just one of several latest Shell Shack locations to open. With the Henderson spot, Shell Shack is giving customers more patio space, more drinks and plenty of seafood. If you’ve never been, I always recommend going for a bag, preferably the Kitchen Sink with Dungeness crab, tators, sausage and broccoli. Crab connoisseurs should try the bairdi snow crabs here. It’s a little sweeter but less dense than your standard snow. According to Chief Executive Officer of Shell Shack,…

Whiskey Cake Comes to Irving

    There’s whiskey and there’s cake. The name of this restaurant alone brings joy to my taste buds. Now, Whiskey Cake is spreading that whiskey soaked joy to Irving. The eatery recently opened their sixth location, finally providing the folks of Las Colinas with a little taste. With their latest location, you can still expect to be whisked away by their ever growing whiskey selection. For the grubbers that know, their deviled eggs are still a staple, with the ingredients changing often. One day their filled with smoked salmon, another topped off with fried chicken skin. It’s rather remarkable to know that a deviled egg can be so damn…

Satiating Spring at State & Allen Kitchen and Bar

State & Allen Kitchen and Bar 5 Stars Pork belly is quite the finicky food. If not prepared just right, particularly braised or fried, it simply does not work. Because of this I lead into every pork belly situation with caution. I extended this same fork first caution when trying out the new Crispy Pork Belly Tostadas at State & Allen Kitchen and Bar. After one bite it was clear my need for caution was absolutely unnecessary. The popular uptown neighborhood eatery recently launched a mouthwatering Spring menu that features 12 new bites and 17 signature new booze concoctions. This leads us back to their Crispy Pork Belly Tostadas. Topped…

Grimaldi’s Enter’s Toyota Music Factory

Grimaldi’s is a pizza chain worth visiting. This is coming from a local restaurant and bar infatuated millennial. Recently the eatery made its way to Irving’s new Toyota Music Factory, giving us yet another reason to salivate over this space.  Before my visit, I’d never eaten at Grimaldi’s before, so I was pleasantly surprised by their wine selection. It’s not massive, but they do have a few of my favorites including the popular red blend 19 Crimes and the sexy If You See Kay from Lazio, Italy. My pal Mo Barrow and I decided to go with the highly recommended cabernet, Educated Guess. The flavor is fairly robust, earthy and dry.…
