Botolino Gelato: AKA Italy on Greenville Avenue

Paciugo should be shaking in its knock-off Italian boots. Botolino Gelato just opened last week on Greenville Avenue, and since its owners won’t talk shit about the competition and the differences between them, I will. After all, that’s basically my job, right? It’s not really even talking shit. Because Paciugo is super tasty. They offer […]

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 […]

Sneak #VIPeek: Toasted Coffee + Kitchen

Toasted Coffee + Kitchen is finally ready to open its doors on Lower Greenville, and it’s about to do just that on Monday. Coffee, wine on tap, beer, and of course toast on house-baked breads will be available to all who enter. The whole place is a custom job, design-wise, and it’s pretty cool. There […]

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 […]

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 […]

I’ve got the sickness, and Remedy is the cure.

Remedy, the hot new spot from former Top Chef contestant Danyele McPherson (who worked with chefs Brian Luscher of The Grape and Stephan Pyles of Stephan Pyles, Stampede 66 and San Salvaje), tosses out plate after plate of southern-style greatness you wish your mama made, from hushpuppies with spicy butter to deliciously killer chicken liver […]

@CityofAte #CROSSPOST: The Best Frozen Cocktails in Dallas

In case you couldn’t tell, it’s Cocktail Week at City of Ate, which explains the increased number of posts about drinking up on the blog. Similarly to the smoked cocktails post from yesterday, and in fact during the same long night of barhopping, my girl Oh Hey Dallas and I tried several frozen cocktails around […]

@CityofAte #CROSSPOST: Dallas’ Best Smoked Cocktails

Okay I don’t know that these are the best. So let me just put that out there. But I went on the hunt, for several hours one night, after scouring the internet beforehand looking for smoked drinks. We tasted some. Some were long gone off of restaurants’ and bars’ menus and wouldn’t be back until […]

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 […]
