Meat Your Friends at Corrientes 348: A #VIPeek

Meat your friends at Corrientes 348 South Americans just seem to know how to make friends easily. Well, Corrientes 348 just opened up downtown and now I think I know their secret. It’s food. Lots and lots of grilled meats and vegetables served family style in a festive setting. Corrientes 348 brought that spirit stateside […]

Lekka Means Good: a #VIPeek at the New Henderson Location

Lekka Means Good Last week my Food Bastard and I got to do drinks and dinner together thanks to a couple of really nice grandparents who were willing to take care of our crazy Food Babies while we hit the town. But where to go for dinner? It might be a humblebrag, but it’s also […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

Cheers for a Cause: The Ultimate Cocktail Experience at Klyde Warren Park Nov. 5

It’s time again for the Ultimate Cocktail Experience. Though the name itself sounds a bit generic, it’s quite a badass event. First of all, there’s a worthy cause: Trigger’s Toys, a charity that serves children and families of children who require extended medical assistance in DFW. They give these kids care packages and toys, and they provide events and financial assistance to […]

Sneak Peek // Go Go to Hash House a Go Go: It Opens This Friday in Plano

Ever been to a Hash House a Go Go? If you had, you’d remember. I’ve been to one in Las Vegas, and damn. Here are some things to know about HHGG (which is what I’ll be calling it): 1) Huge portions is pretty much the first two words that come to mind when trying to […]

Now Open: Matchbox is Heating up Preston Hollow Village

Media dinners are always fun. Flowing drinks, free food and a chance to catch up with food-centric friends who don’t care how many photos you take before you eat something. But what can be much better than a media dinner, is when a restaurant decides to do something different with their soft opening. Matchbox decided to […]

#VIPeek: The Theodore Premieres at Northpark

Premiering tomorrow: a new restaurant serving fare that great American president Theodore Roosevelt would have been into, inside a Wes Anderson-inspired space. Called The Theodore, the place is –not surprisingly, weird— but good-weird, like an Anderson film. With a cast of characters full of talent, tons of flavor and color, but somehow it just works. […]

A #VIPeek at the New Midnight Brunch at Addison’s Ida Claire

Unless you’re new here (which if you are, heyyyyy! Welcome to the food porn show!! Hope you like some cussin!), you probably might have guessed by now that I am a pretty big fan of the meal that we all commonly refer to as brunch. It can happen, in my humble opinion, any time you […]

#highfashion: @askfoodbitch featured on the Mockingbird Styles blog

And now for something completely different. I got to act like a style blogger (well, one who eats a ton of snacks anyway) a couple of weeks ago when I hit the shops and restaurants around Mockingbird Station with a badass photographer in tow to be featured on the Mockingbird Styles blog. I’m so NOT a style blogger, […]

Decoding Rapscallion’s Bar Menu with Victualler Eddie Eakin: a @DallasObserver @CityOfAte #Repost

The idea for this Q&A came to me while I was standing with my two friends at Rapscallion, waiting to be seated. We were all staring at the cocktails portion of the bar menu, dumbfounded by the words printed there. We didn’t know whether to laugh or to cry. We definitely laughed, because it is […]

Let’s Rap About Rapscallion, Shall We? #EATALLTHEDAMNTHINGS @RpscllnDallas

Ahhh yes. The soft open. They should really call it a hard open because, well, you know. Okay, I’ll say it. Soft opens get me excited. Yep. In that kind of way. I snagged a table (thank you, sweet baby jesus!), brought two friends along (Ooh! A threesome!) and headed to the much-anticipated Rapscallion on Friday night. A […]

Don’t Just Drive on by. Eat at Malai! #ThaiMeUp

If there’s one thing you need to know about Malai, it’s that it will likely surprise you. Tucked into the West Village shopping area in Uptown, it looks a bit unassuming. The patio is sweet, inside it’s often bustling with shoppers stopping in for a midday respite or a post-shopping trip bite before heading home. […]

A #VIPeek at how Del Frisco’s Grille does summer

Last week, the fine folks at Del Frisco’s Grille invited me out to their brand spanking new Plano restaurant to get a sneak peek at the newest DFG before it opened to the public. Unfortunately, this bitch doesn’t get all the way up that far north too often, so luckily for me, they were also […]

Keys to the Minibar: Alcohol Delivery Service Q&A #3

Minibar, LASH and Drizly walk into a bar… Just kidding! They’re all sitting on their couches, ordering beer, wine and liquor on their asses. Just like all of us, now that we can all order our favorite dranks from the palm of our hands. You’ve read all about Drizly and LASH on my blog. Well, […]

#brunchismyjam: a #VIPeek at the New Family Style Brunch at The Rustic

So the folks at The Rustic invited me and a few choice Dallas food bloggers and Instagrammers to taste out their new family-style brunch this past weekend, and as brunch is my absolute favorite meal (I’d even go so far as to say “Brunch is my jam,”) I was more than happy to attend. They call it […]

Mo drinky? No problem: LASH alcohol delivery app responds to @Drizly Q&A

The folks at LASH (makers of yet another alcohol delivery app in town), caught wind of the Q&A I posted with the Drizly guys. So naturally they wanted to tell you all what makes their app better and/or special. I have a couple of quick points on that: 1) In-n-Out Burgers 2) chicken nuggets. Yeah […]
