Super Chix has a New Menu and Here’s a #VIPeek

Super Chix is not just chicken, fries and custard anymore… A foodbitch favorite and permanent member in good standing on the kid-friendly, foodbitch-approved list, Super Chix keeps on improving and growing. A few months ago they expanded their already delicious and nearly perfect menu to include some great new chicken sandwiches, breakfast sandwiches, and even a unique […]

Event Alert: On Wednesdays We Watch “Mean Girls”

WHATEVER I’M GETTING CHEESE FRIES. So, Sundown at Granada has started doing these summer rooftop movies, during which they offer half priced whiskey. That alone should seal the deal for you, because the movies are all cult classics like The Goonies and Austin Powers. But they approached me about partnering with them for their showing of […]

My lightweight, colorful, quality Mom-Work-Life, #Sponsored by @BuiltNY

Hey thanks, BUILT! I have been honestly surprised at how much use I’m getting out of the awesome stuff that BUILT sent me. The City Carryall has all but replaced my heavy leather laptop bag (summer, here I come), and speaking of needing to hydrate, the water bottles are inexpensive, yet high quality alternatives to that […]

// #SPONSORED: // What to eat at Fort Worth’s @FortressFest this weekend 

Going to Fortress Festival? Raise your hand if you plan most of your weekend around the meals you’ll be eating. Yep, me too. So if you’re cool enough to already know about the Fortress Festival going on in Fort Worth this weekend (maybe you’ve already bought tickets, or maybe you’d better hurry because they very […]

POKÉ ALL DAY: A #VIPeek at Pokébop in Oaklawn

Poke All Day: A #VIPeek at Pokébop in Oaklawn ​​ As I type this, another poké spot has likely opened its doors. I’m not mad at it; I love the fresh, light, healthy, Asian flavors of a poké bowl. On any given day I am likely craving such a thing, in fact. So I’m happy […]

Going GREEN: Dallas’ 11 Best Salads Right Now

You pinch, I punch. That’s my motto on St. Patty’s Day, anyway. Even though green is my favorite color, I’m not so much into the holiday itself. We Jewish folk have plenty of our own drinking holidays; there’s no need to piggyback off others’. One of our biggest, Purim, was just a couple of days […]

Lovers Seafood is for Lovers (of Seafood) #VIPeek

Do you love fish? I do. Last week, the team at Lovers Seafood & Market invited a group of media and influencers (including Yours Truly) to a #VIPeek at the newly renovated spot before it opened to the public. Reborn from a former seafood market (Rex’s), and with the feel of another seafood market (TJ’s), it’s not […]

Like A Shake Shack Cowboy

Just wanted to drop a quick post to say that Shake Shack’s BBQ menu is damn tasty. And their seasonal shakes, including the Mint Cookies & Cream one pictured below, are definitely devilish. I’m not sure I can say I prefer the BBQ Chick’n Shack to the original, but it’s a tasty item to try if you’re […]

Hey There Nikkei

Hey There Nikkei… The newest hot spot in Uptown had only been open a few nights when I snuck in for a peek and a few choice sips. Nikkei, which is named for the fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine (yes, it’s a thing, lucky us), is a sexy little spot that will leave you […]

Pie Tap + #NationalPizzaDay

It’s National Pizza Day. As if you needed an excuse. Pie Tap has some of the most crave-worthy pizza in town, not to mention excellent salads, desserts powered by Dude, Sweet chocolate’s Katherine Clapner and craft cocktails designed by Gabe Sanchez of Black Swan Saloon. With two locations (so far), in the Design District and […]

Super Late Super Bowl List

Sources tell me there’s a “Big Game” coming up this Sunday. I don’t know, I’m not really into sports. It’s just so gosh darned American: exercising our right to watch America’s game on a big screen TV while drinking American beers and eating American food. In fact, of the teams playing is the Patriots, for goodness’ […]

A #VIPeek at Water Grill, Now Open on McKinney Avenue 

WATER GRILL DALLAS, I see you wavin’ Here in Dallas, we have a lot of restaurants. Like, too many. Far too many. That’s why so many good ones fail, in fact. But despite the plethora of choices, the number of quality seafood restaurants is actually quite small. I can count on one hand the seafood […]

Foodbitch Travel Playbook: How to Cruise Featuring Royal Caribbean

I’ll be honest. Cruising isn’t my favorite way to vacation. Cruising with family and kids probably doesn’t help either. But, there are ways to do it, things to know, stuff to bring and expectations to set that will help you have a successful, and even delightful, cruise experience. Even if you’re not the cruising type, like […]

Foodbitch’s 2017 Bucket Lists

It all started when I had the worst enchiladas ever, in Huntsville, Texas. Why was I eating a plate of enchiladas in Huntsville? It’s a long story, but basically I used Foursquare (what?) to find a place to stop along the highway on the way home from Galveston after a family cruise. It was late […]

Tortaco: a Lot of Smoke, and Also Tacos

Tortaco: Smoke and Tacos, Tacos and Smoke Downtown on Ross, in a space that used to house two failed (yet delicious) Stephan Pyles restaurants, is Tortaco, a reasonably priced Mexican restaurant that is obsessed with Mezcal. If you’ve had Mezcal, you know it. It’s a smoky liquor related to tequila but, well, just super smoky. […]

Blind Butcher Does Brunch 

Brunch at the Blind Butcher? Sold. The Blind Butcher is a bar and restaurant on Greenville Avenue that I’ve spent embarrassingly little time inside. Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t drink a lot or that I don’t eat pork, but every time I think of this place, I think to myself, “Man! I’ve got […]

It’s Chrismukkah! Make Your Holidays Easy with Eatzi’s #TakeItEatzis #Sponsored

It’s true what people are saying. The holidays are getting out of hand. Spending-wise, expectations-wise and definitely stress-wise. All you really need to get in the holiday spirit are a few meaningful traditions, some festive atmosphere and the people you care about. Oh, and food. Lots of food. I happen to love cooking and entertaining, […]

Fall in Love with Abacus’ New Fall Menu and Happy Hour

First things first: Abacus is launching a fall happy hour with $12 appetizers and $6 cocktails. This is a stellar deal when you consider we’re talking about Abacus. A Dallas mainstay of high-end dining and the home of the infamous lobster shooters. So on Tuesdays through Fridays from 5:00 to 6:30, I suspect this would […]

A Park & Palate 2016 Recap with Pictures

In August we got a sneak preview of this year’s Park & Palate that tempted us with hamachi, sweet desserts by pastry chef Julie Vorce, and plenty of bubbles. Chefs and barmen gathered to let the media know about the annual fundraiser for the park and all it would entail this year. Fast forward to […]

Because Thanksgiving: Give The Power of Pie Through Sunday

Good news! This opportunity has been extended through Sunday! If you’re like me and you’ve been trying to find things to be thankful for lately, one thing you can be thankful for is your health. That you’re not hungry. And that there are organizations like VNA Texas and Meals on Wheels that take care of […]

Sneak VIPeek: Uptown Urban Market 

Food halls. They’re a new trend in the restaurant biz and one is finally poised to open in Dallas. The Uptown Urban Market, in the former Sfuzzi space (formerly the NAAN/weird-ass burger space), is almost ready. I happened to drive by at just the right moment to catch Jonathan Tobolosky, one of the partners and a friend of […]

MEAT FIGHT 2016

The meatiest event of the year has come and gone, but not before lifting our spirits and raising a whopping $175,000 for the National MS Society and Meat Bikes.  Who won? Our stomachs did. Oh. The like, winners. Here’s the official list: Brisket: Omar Flores Sausage: Anastacia Quinones Pork Ribs: Oliver Sitrin Beef Ribs: Patton […]
