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), […]

2015 in Review: Here’s What Some of the BEST Chefs in Dallas Had to Say (via the @Dallas_Observer)

    Before we totally tell 2015 to take a hike, I thought I’d ask some of Dallas’ best chefs about the past year and what they thought of it, as well as the year coming up and what they’re looking forward to. So I did. I also asked them who they’ll be keeping an […]

Taking Back Turkey: The Bitch is Coming to Thanksgiving Dinner This Year

My name is foodbitch, and I fucking love Thanksgiving. But in the past few years, I’ve had to put my love for the food-based holiday on the proverbial (and somewhat literal) back burner after having twin foodbabies and taking trips to visit family over the holidays. I love my children, and I adore my family, […]

#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 Taste of Wabi House on Greenville Avenue

Wabi House opened on Greenville, just shy of Ross, so I headed right over because noodles. And raw fish. And cocktails. But life’s short, right? Right. So here’s our dessert, first: Black sesame creme brûlée. If you like sesame flavor, you will love this. The sesame is intensified by the sugar and caramelized and just […]

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 […]

Faster, cheaper, better? Drizly alcohol delivery app launches tomorrow: a Q&A with CEO and Co-founder Nick Rellas

This story sounds familiar. I got a press release. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I get a lot of those. Every single day. But this one caught my attention because it had liquor in it. Okay, a lot of the press releases I get actually contain alcohol. This one was about an alcohol delivery app. There are […]

Introducing foodMoM!

I love my twin #foodbabies. I love them more than all the sushi and cocktails and foie gras and soft cheeses and chicken salad sandwiches and everything else I couldn’t eat while I was growing them inside me for 38 weeks while they took turns stomping on my bladder like they were trying to mash […]

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 […]
