My co-workers in Fort Worth have been raving about Weinberger's for months. An unexpected trip over to that part of town led me to venture into this small, discreet NY-style deli in the middle of Grapevine's town square. Best decision I've made in a while.
Weinberger's is your classic New York deli, complete with cuban sandwiches, hot french dips, and (you guessed it) the reuben. Walking in instantly takes you back in time to delis of old you've seen in black and white p
If you read these pages, you know that we're often fans of truffles, foie gras, turducken, caviar, etc. BUT, some people have asked us what we would recommend for a simple weeknight meal when you barely have time for 1 course, rather than 5. So, we thought we'd put something together that is simple, delicious, and almost universally loved. Yes, you guessed it: Pot Roast, with mashed potatoes and gravy! Now the key to great pot roast is starting with a good piece of meat,
We've finally found what we didn't know we'd been missing now that the West Coast sensation that is Milk & Cream has come to Dallas. We always said if an ice cream shop were to open in our neighborhood, they would kill it. Milk & Cream seems to be doing just that - and rightfully so.

A few months ago, we were having a glass of wine at a local wine bar, and learned that a Mellow Mushroom was being built across the street (in place of a favorite Tex/Mex joint that had recently been torn down).

She'd only been a couple of times years prior, so we thought we'd try it out once it opened. We waited a couple weeks after they opened to let the
All hail Louie's. The holy grail of dive bars. The greatest pizza and martinis in all of Dallas, maybe in the world. Our own version of Cheers, where everyone knows our name.
We love this place and frequent it at least once a week. It's our comfort place, our celebration spot, and where we take friends visiting from out of town. It is quintessential old-school Dallas. We certainly miss Louie (God rest his soul) and are glad not much has changed since his passing. H
On a recent Sunday morning, we decided we needed to get out and grab brunch at a new, interesting spot. We'd hear a lot about this interesting place called Top Knot, located on top of Uchi in Uptown. It had great reviews, and had been open long enough to find itself and present its true colors when we visited. A glance at the menu sealed the deal--it was going to be a Top Knot brunch. We found the place easy enough, but parking is definitely challenging. Either get there
