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 […]

Kin Kin is Gone Gone; Now Bite by Eddy T is Open on Oak Lawn Avenue #VIPeek

The restaurant formerly known as Kin Kin but now known as Bite, which was a restaurant in Fort Worth that closed, but not the Kin Kin in Fort Worth, because that one’s still kickin’, is open… as Bite now… on Oak Lawn Avenue in Dallas. And there may or may not be more Kins or […]

Park & Palate in Pictures by @foodbitch, via the @Dallas_Observer Food & Drink Blog

It might just be time for a little bit of detox. It’s Fair season, which means simply living within a three-mile radius of Fair Park might tick my cholesterol up a few points. I don’t even have to partake. My point? I’ve been indulging in quite a few delicious items of late, the most recent being […]

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 […]

Le Dîner en Blanc Dallas in Pictures

Last Thursday night was… crazy! But also incredible, a spectacle and something I wouldn’t have missed. It was better than I imagined. It was the inaugural Dîner en Blanc Dallas. 1,600 people wore white from head to toe and descended on the Continental Avenue Pedestrian Bridge near Trinity Groves to take part in a new […]

Salud! A Lunazul Tequila dinner at el Bolero

Last night, the folks at Apheleia Restaurant Group (who also bring us the delicious and beautiful Oak and Pakpao) invited me to a Lunazul Tequila tequila dinner at el Bolero — three courses paired el Bolero’s Mexican goodness. I don’t always sip liquor, but when I do, it’s usually tequila, so I eagerly agreed to attend said dinner. Salud! […]

#TACOLANDIA is coming, and the presale starts today!

Have you heard about tacos? Yeah, they’re kind of delicious. Delicious enough to have hundreds of restaurants, stands, recipes, books, blogs, instagrammers, podcasts and festivals devoted to them exclusively. Well, here’s one more, and this time it’s one put on by our very own Dallas Observer. So you know it’s going to be a fun […]

foodbitch Guide to DFW Restaurant Week 2015

So I know I already posted about Restaurant Week this year, but it’s a hot topic. 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. Without further ado, I’ll now present The foodbitch Guide to DFW Restaurant Week 2015. […]

DÎNER EN BLANC DALLAS Date Announced: September 17, 2015 (but don’t you dare call it a flash mob)

  The following content was originally posted on the Dallas Observer’s food & drink blog. Check it out… Here’s something completely different. How would you like to drive to a predetermined rendezvous point, dressed head-to-toe in fancy all-white clothing, with a picnic table and chairs, dinner and cleanup supplies in tow, be driven to a secret location in the Dallas/Fort […]

#highfashion: @askfoodbitch featured on the Mockingbird Styles blog

And now for something completely different. I got to act like a style blogger (well, one who eats a ton of snacks anyway) a couple of weeks ago when I hit the shops and restaurants around Mockingbird Station with a badass photographer in tow to be featured on the Mockingbird Styles blog. I’m so NOT a style blogger, […]

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 […]

Val’s Cheesecakes Has a Brick-and-Mortar Now!

I love a feel-good story. This is one of those. I also love a taste-good story. This is one of those, too. Val’s Cheesecakes now has a brick-and-mortar storefront/window/walkup on Maple Avenue, right next to/attached to/stumbling distance from the Grapevine Bar. Good news for drunks/gays/Dallas Observer staff/EVERYONE. Go read my post over on City of Ate about the […]

Don’t Just Drive on by. Eat at Malai! #ThaiMeUp

If there’s one thing you need to know about Malai, it’s that it will likely surprise you. Tucked into the West Village shopping area in Uptown, it looks a bit unassuming. The patio is sweet, inside it’s often bustling with shoppers stopping in for a midday respite or a post-shopping trip bite before heading home. […]

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 […]

#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 […]

Eat Red (Meat) for a Good (RED) Cause

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 the Uchi Dallas menu right here, right now!

There’s good sushi, there’s bad sushi, and there’s sushi that’s just okay. Then there’s Uchi. Uchi is something entirely different. It’s another category. It’s an experience. Uchi celebrates the product, the purity and quality and perfection of sushi, but it also is about creating dishes (see Kamo Nabe with duck, mushroom and chili, pictured left) that you haven’t seen […]

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 […]

Savor Dallas Food and Wine festival plans to kick ass and take names in 2015 #Sponsored

You know that saying about leaving well enough alone? Yeah, Dallas has been throwing that saying right out the window lately when it comes to food. Suddenly, the status quo isn’t cutting it, and that’s a very good thing for all of our collective stomachs. First, the Town of Addison’s Taste Addison cluster became Fork […]

Now open in Deep Ellum: Chef Brian Luscher’s @Luscher’s. Peep the menu before you go stuff your face with his sausage. #VIPeek

Chef Brian Luscher is a man of many talents. Looking like Tom Hanks’ long lost brother is just one of them. Many of his others include being a kickass chef, convincing a lovely lady to marry him and making killer charcuterie (read: DUCK HAM). He knows what’s up when it comes to the meats. He […]
