Food halls. They’re a new trend in the restaurant biz and one is finally poised to open in Dallas. The Uptown Urban Market, in the former Sfuzzi space (formerly the NAAN/weird-ass burger space), is almost ready. I happened to drive by at just the right moment to catch Jonathan Tobolosky, one of the partners and a friend of […]

Toasted Coffee + Kitchen is finally ready to open its doors on Lower Greenville, and it’s about to do just that on Monday.

Style + Taste: The New @NespressoUSA Store inside Northpark #SWAGBRAG

First things first: Tim Gunn endorsement from food bitch on Vimeo. So embarrassing. I totally shot this video vertically like a n00b. In my defense, I was out-of-my-mind excited to meet Tim and trying not to pee my pants at the same time. This turned me into an old person, apparently. And now that we’ve […]

@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 […]
