Event Alert: On Wednesdays We Watch “Mean Girls”

WHATEVER I’M GETTING CHEESE FRIES. So, Sundown at Granada has started doing these summer rooftop movies, during which they offer half priced whiskey.

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 […]

International Adventures in Food: Carrollton’s Russian Banya & Restaurant Volga

So our Sunday got a little bit weird. We drove out to Carrollton and found a section of a strip mall painted with colorful columns and vines and whatnot.

You: don’t want to spend a ton of money on an over-cooked piece of steak and some shitty champagne. I: totally hear you. That’s why I’ve been doing alternative Valentine’s Day for years now.

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.

Taking Back Turkey: The Bitch is Coming to Thanksgiving Dinner This Year

My name is foodbitch, and I fucking love Thanksgiving. But in the past few years, I’ve had to put my love for the food-based holiday on the proverbial (and somewhat literal) back burner after having twin foodbabies and taking trips to visit family over the holidays. I love my children, and I adore my family, […]

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.

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 […]

Because I love DFW Style Daily and because they are all a hundred times more stylish than I am, I will let them get away with the use of the word “foodie” to describe me. We’ll just say it was all about that S-E-O and leave it at that, K? I was flattered and honored […]

Introducing foodMoM!

I love my twin #foodbabies. I love them more than all the sushi and cocktails and foie gras and soft cheeses and chicken salad sandwiches and everything else I couldn’t eat while I was growing them inside me for 38 weeks while they took turns stomping on my bladder like they were trying to mash […]
