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 […]

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 […]

First Look: The Dream Café is OPEN in East Dallas

A while back, I came across some good news for people who hate shitty tacos. Fuzzy’s at the corner of Mockingbird and Abrams in East Dallas was closing and being replaced by Dream Café. Finally, this week, the newest addition to the family-friendly restaurant scene in East Dallas is (softly) open. Dream Café is planning […]

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 […]

Madrina on a Monday…

I was invited to Madrina to sample some of the menu and ended up chatting with owner Michael Martensen for quite a while as we ate. And you know what? Even after all the dang drama it’s clear he’s a nice guy. And not only that, Madrina is a beautiful, beautiful place with great food and […]

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 […]

TJ’s Seafood Market makes your naughty nautical boozy brunch dreams come true #VIPeek

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of TJ’s Seafood Market. Owner Jon Alexis and I go way back; our dogs are friends, our babies are friends and I’m always happy to cheers to his successes. That’s why I’m very excited to report that TJ’s is now offering brunch, which is also — again, NO SECRET […]

#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 […]

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 […]

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: The First Annual Brunchies: Dallas’ Best Brunch Awards

Gah. I feel like I’m always talking about brunch lately. Maybe because I’m always hungry (feeding twins will do that to you) or maybe it’s just because brunch is effing awesome. Probably both. Anyway, the folks at The Observer asked me to come up with some best brunches so I jotted down my favorites in categories […]

A New Take on Brunch at Malai

Brunch is my favorite meal. Its relaxed pace, appreciation for carbs and mix of sweet and savory options just make my day. So when I heard that Malai Kitchen, a fusion restaurant in the West Village, was offering brunch, I was intrigued. I hadn’t made it over there though, before the folks at Malai invited […]

Sissy’s Does Brunch and Surprise, Surprise: It’s AWESOME

Sissy’s, well known for awesome Fried Chicken that’s so good you want to capitalize it, is now finally venturing into brunch, starting on Saturdays. They started this morning, in fact. And last week, before they did, they invited some media folk like me in to try most of the menu. I’ve got to say, it’s […]

@cityofate #CROSSPOST: Dallas’ 5 Best Brunch Gut Bombs

Let’s talk about BRUNCH, baby. Let’s talk about you and me. Let’s talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be! Yes, brunch is that good. We know this. And we also know that size does matter. Because pancakes. What was I saying? Oh yeah, that’s right… The folks at City […]

NEW FOOD NEWS: Belly & Trumpet BRUNCH Starts Sunday

Hello, brunch lovers. Sound the horns once again! For Belly & Trumpet will begin serving brunch this Sunday from 11-3. Huzzah! I don’t know if you know this, but I really, really love brunch. Like, REALLY. I love everything about it. The lazy pace, the day drinking, the espresso drinks and most of all, the […]

Brunch Me, Baby: A #VIPeek at Brunch at MAX’s Wine Dive

I’ve said this on the Twitters before, but just in case you didn’t catch it, it’s very important that you understand that MAX’s Wine Dive serves BRUNCH ON FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. I said Friday. That means you can have brunch, and go back to work with a smile on your face and a mimosa […]

Acme F&B Intros Brunch Service with Emphasis on “Service”

Things I like: brunch & events with charity components. So when I saw a note from Adam Saxton of Pinkberry and North Texas Food Bank fame about this Sunday’s special brunch at Acme F&B, my brain saw this: BRUNCH! Acme F&B! NTFB! If you are likeminded to me and you think those three things are […]

@CityofAte #CROSSPOST: #EatingEastDallas at Latin Deli

There’s a new place to grab a sandwich in East Dallas and it’s got Latin flavor. Latin Deli delivers on good, fast and cheap, to use a really annoying business analogy. The chicken salad was a bit odd (potatoes and veggies?), but I was a big fan of the lomo saltado. If you’re a pork […]

Dim Sum and Then Some: A #VIPeek at Five Sixty’s New Dim Sum Brunch

A few weeks ago, I got a press release touting Five Sixty’s new Dim Sum Brunch. Now, as a person who eats neither pork nor shrimp, dim sum can be a sad concept, usually yielding very few options. Every time I attempt to participate in this celebrated Asian meal I either accidentally eat something I […]
