New Menu at Don’t Tell Supper Club

  Dancing, burlesque and drag shows are all good things, especially when they can be found in the same place. Add some bomb ass drinks and good grub to boot, then it’s officially surpassed good times and made its way to epic. Since 2017, Don’t Tell Supper Club has combined live entertainment with food and cocktails, creating one of the most unique dining experiences in the city. Recently, Don’t Tell not so quietly introduced their new menu. It kicks off with shareable Opening Acts like Smoked Yellowtail Sashimi, citrusly married with grapefruit segments, sliced jalapenos, cucumbers and avocado puree.

CFF Main Event Recap 2018

Patiently waiting in line to meet up with my devouring destiny, I struck up a conversation with a couple. “We look forward to this event every year,” she happily exclaimed. Though they’d been tempted to attend other grubby galas around town, The Main Event for Chefs for Farmers ALWAYS got their coins. Once again, it was money well spent. Held at the historic Dallas Heritage Village for the first time, this year appetites were allured by a variety of delicious bites but wagyu beef took center stage. Some took a traditional approach to the tender meat, but others went a cut above, like the Wagyu Beef Gyro Airbread or the…

The Greek Food Festival of Dallas is a Hit Rain or Shine

Come rain or shine, people are going to get their gyros. The 62nd Greek Food Festival of Dallas was hit with a little bit of the wet stuff, but, the annual 3 day festival carried on. With their biggest turnout on Sunday, guests lined up for mouthwatering gyros, surrendered to the honeyed sweetness of loukoumades and gleefully chomped down on scrumptious souvlaki. And, don’t even talk about the spanakopita, dolmades or fried feta bites. Those are just the classics. New to this year’s festival was Galaktoboureko, a creamy custard held inside a flaky crispy phyllo pastry shell. It was a weekend of gracious grub, traditional Greek dancing and an all…

Getting Fried at #getfried Fry Cafe

  #getfried Fry Cafe Part of the joy in being alive comes from knowing that fries exist. And there are so many versions of their fried potato existence. But, ask yourself, could you imagine a place where the menu is primarily made up of…fries. It exists. #getfried fry cafe recently opened in Deep Ellum and they are serving everything from the basic French fry, to waffle, to gravy and cheese curd doused Poutine. It goes without saying, you’re not going to visit this place if you’re watching your waistline, but for those gluttonous grubbers looking for a good time, it’s worth checking out. Like their slogan says, “Sometimes it’s good…

Brunch and Other Good Things at Thirsty Lion

  A damn good fried potato aka French fry will always be a spot of weakness for me. Pair that with a well-seasoned spicy crispy chicken sandwich, and I’m ready to commit.  While I am not particularly crazy about a lot of chain eateries, when a place does things right, you’ve got to give props. And, without a doubt Thirsty Lion deserves quite a few props. Late last year Thirsty Lion joined multiple other eateries opening their doors at the Toyota Music Factory in Irving. With their founding roots in Portland, and knowing the delightful things I know about the grub in Portland, expectations were HIGH to say the least.…
