#VIPeek: Q Tacos at Machos Cantina is a mouthful and I’m okay with it

Q Tacos at Machos Cantina Why limit your taco nights to Taco Tuesday? Around here, every day can be a taco kind of day, with the wealth of taco spots that grace our city streets. This one’s a good one (as well as a mouthful): Q Tacos at Machos Cantina. The restaurant formerly known as […]

Meat Your Friends at Corrientes 348: A #VIPeek

Meat your friends at Corrientes 348 South Americans just seem to know how to make friends easily. Well, Corrientes 348 just opened up downtown and now I think I know their secret. It’s food.

Lekka Means Good: a #VIPeek at the New Henderson Location

Lekka Means Good Last week my Food Bastard and I got to do drinks and dinner together thanks to a couple of really nice grandparents who were willing to take care of our crazy Food Babies while we hit the town. But where to go for dinner? It might be a humblebrag, but it’s also […]

Lovers Seafood is for Lovers (of Seafood) #VIPeek

Do you love fish? I do. Last week, the team at Lovers Seafood & Market invited a group of media and influencers (including Yours Truly) to a #VIPeek at the newly renovated spot before it opened to the public. Reborn from a former seafood market (Rex’s), and with the feel of another seafood market (TJ’s), it’s not […]

Hey There Nikkei

Hey There Nikkei… The newest hot spot in Uptown had only been open a few nights when I snuck in for a peek and a few choice sips. Nikkei, which is named for the fusion of Peruvian and Japanese cuisine (yes, it’s a thing, lucky us), is a sexy little spot that will leave you […]

A #VIPeek at Water Grill, Now Open on McKinney Avenue 

WATER GRILL DALLAS, I see you wavin’ Here in Dallas, we have a lot of restaurants. Like, too many. Far too many. That’s why so many good ones fail, in fact. But despite the plethora of choices, the number of quality seafood restaurants is actually quite small. I can count on one hand the seafood […]

Foodbitch’s 2017 Bucket Lists

It all started when I had the worst enchiladas ever, in Huntsville, Texas. Why was I eating a plate of enchiladas in Huntsville? It’s a long story, but basically I used Foursquare (what?) to find a place to stop along the highway on the way home from Galveston after a family cruise. It was late […]

Here’s what you need to know.   Chef: Josh Harmon Chef Harmon has a lovely resume, y’all. Good names on this thing. Here’s a little somethin-somethin’ about him, from […]

Now Open: A First Look at Texas Scratch Kitchen

Texas Scratch Kitchen is Now Open There’s a new kitchen in town, and yes I’m talking about a renovation, but not the home renovation kind, though the before/after is quite shocking. In a space that used to house Coconuts Island Grill in Pavilion Center near Inwood Village, full of fun, colorful, fishy flavor, stands the wooded, […]

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 […]

Come Hungry: Tre Wilcox’s Julia Pearl Opens Tomorrow in Plano

Southern food is having a moment. That’s obvious. It has been for a few years now, and it is continuing to grow in popularity, well, because it’s delicious, soul-comforting and it reminds people of home, their mamas and also there’s bacon. People love that. It’s science. Anyway, the latest to show up and say they’re […]

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 […]

Real Talk: The Top 20 Kid-Friendly Restaurants in Dallas According to Foodbitch

Look, I get it. There are lots of folks who think that children and restaurants don’t mix, outside a Mickey D’s. They picture snot-nosed screamers throwing food and breaking dishes and whatnot. Sure, there are demon children who do that, and honestly, ALL children have done ALL of those things at one time or another. It’s just […]

Nosh Bistro & Bar in North Dallas: New Home, Same Schtick.

My first full-length restaurant review is in the books, people. And it feels… weird. When a chef’s resume reads like a broken record player, it might be time to shake things up rather than do a same-old, same-old sort of deal in a new location. But hey, that’s just my opinion. And usually nobody asks […]

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 […]

#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. […]

Unleavened is open and feeding Lakewood local, tasty, healthy things

Fun fact: I get excited when new restaurants open. Shocking, I know. Well, I get super extra excited when new restaurants open up in East Dallas like kind of almost on my street. Unleavened just did that. So I scurried over there, took some photos, wrote about it for the Dallas Observer, and then a […]

The much-anticipated second location of Pakpao Thai with chef Jet Tila leading the kitchen has finally, quietly, yet very stylishly opened for dinner Friday night in Preston Hollow Village off Walnut Hill and 75.

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! […]

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 […]

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. […]
