10 Dallas Date Night Classics

#GREATEST DALLAS DATE NIGHT CLASSICS If you haven’t been here, then you don’t know Dallas. So, to be completely honest, this list is pulling some double duty right now. I wrote a longer list for the folks at Central Track, but this, more curated list is just for you darlings, so you can keep the […]

Foodbitch Travel Playbook: Operation Staycation, Family Edition at the Hilton Anatole & JadeWaters Resort Last summer, I was lucky enough to be among the first to experience the lovely oasis that is the newly resort-ized Hilton Anatole & JadeWaters. Currently my fave spot to staycate, the Anatole has everything a family needs to have tons […]

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 […]

The foodbitch Guide to DFW Restaurant Week 2016

Reservations are coming in for the DFW Restaurant Week 2016. And because festivals are so hot right now (I mean, DFDubs is all about its food festivals), and because everything is so hot right now because it’s so DAMN HOT OUT RIGHT NOW… DFW Restaurant Week has added a festival of its own to the hullabaloo. […]

Black Ship Little Katana Docks at the Omni Downtown

Sushi is my jam. I have my favorites, as we all do, but I’m always looking for new sushi bars to sidle up to. When I was invited to a media tasting at Black Ship Little Katana, a sister restaurant to Katana and Little Katana (inside the Galleria and over on Travis in Uptown, respectively), […]

Review: Montlake Cut

  I’m not going to lie: this freelance food critic gig’s got me feelin’ the perks pretty hard. Montlake Cut, for example, is a lovely little boat, I mean restaurant, (It’s raining today, everything seems seafaring) that moved into the space where my beloved Spoon used to be. I loved getting to experience it a […]

Here are a few more things to know, as well as my two-twenty cents about which restaurants are worth paying a visit during this magical time of the year.

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 […]

If you’ve been waiting for the right time to visit Chef John Tesar’s Knife inside the Highland Dallas, you may want to pull the trigger. For five nights beginning June 1, Chef John Tesar and pastry chef David Collier of Knife will welcome a different celebrated guest chef for a special multi-course dinners priced at […]

Peep Chef Tesar’s New Lunch Menu at Oak Restaurant

  Oak Restaurant has been like a roller coaster, y’all. Ups and downs, but always a fun ride. I’ve never had a bad meal at Oak, though service has been spotty-to-weird, and the menus have lost their way more than once, twisting and turning, looping and even spinning out of control. Or maybe it was just […]

A Meaty Adventure at Pappas Steakhouse in Dallas

Sometimes I think to myself, “I should be a vegetarian. Think of how healthy and skinny I’d be!” Then I slap my own damn face. “But sushi!” I exclaim. “Okay, okay. I could be a pescetarian!” Yeah, okay. For like a week. Because STEAK.   I fucking love a good steak. And you know what else? I […]

My #Sponsored Steakcation at The Highland Dallas, Curio Collection by Hilton

Have I mentioned lately that I’m a lucky bitch? Well, perhaps I haven’t satisfied my mentions quota for 2014, then. Since the year is winding down, let’s go ahead and toss another one on the pile. I am one lucky bitch. This time, it’s because the lovely people at Curio, a collection by Hilton, gave […]

Say Hola to San Salvaje by Chef Stephan Pyles

Hello and welcome, all you wild saints out there. How do you know if you’re a wild saint? Well, are you up for new experiences? For trying something new? For a little egg white in your cocktail? Maybe start there and the bravery for the rest of it is sure to come. At San Salvaje […]

@CityofAte #CROSSPOST: #OMFGBP This Bread Pudding from Stock & Barrel

Once upon a time, two fairy princesses went to dinner together at a lovely little place in a faraway land called Oak Cliff. The decor was sprinkled with class. The food was plated beautifully, culinarily creative and seriously delicious. Then dessert appeared. Four words were spoken: Toffee. Croissant. Bread. Pudding. And then no more words […]

The foodbitch 100 is LIVE!

Happy 2014! What’s that you say? I’m a little bit late? Well, yeah. I had twin food babies in October. WHAT DID YOU DO? Kidding. But all excuses aside, I’ve been working on this list for quite some time and now it’s finally ready for you to enjoy. Inspired by Oh Hey Dallas’ list, over […]

@CityofAte #CROSSPOST: My First Look at Le Bilboquet

I might as well admit it. I’ve been on vacation. It was the glorious kind of vacation where you turn off your cell data and go somewhere beachy and eat marginally acceptable food for a week or so while doing nothing that you can’t do in your bathing suit and flip flops. But right before […]
