10 Dallas Date Night Classics

#GREATEST DALLAS DATE NIGHT CLASSICS If you haven’t been here, then you don’t know Dallas. So, to be completely honest, this list is pulling some double duty right now. I wrote a longer list for the folks at Central Track, but this, more curated list is just for you darlings, so you can keep the […]

POKÉ ALL DAY: A #VIPeek at Pokébop in Oaklawn

Poke All Day: A #VIPeek at Pokébop in Oaklawn ​​ As I type this, another poké spot has likely opened its doors. I’m not mad at it; I love the fresh, light, healthy, Asian flavors of a poké bowl. On any given day I am likely craving such a thing, in fact. So I’m happy […]

Shinsei: A Dallas Mainstay For Everyday Celebrations

Was my birthday dinner better than yours? Possibly. Did you spend yours with good friends and Shinsei? Well, let’s just say I’m a lucky girl, and also let’s not talk about how old I am. Oh. And let’s start with dessert, shall we?   Banana pudding goodness. Four spoons. I’m not entirely sure if the […]

Black Ship Little Katana Docks at the Omni Downtown

Sushi is my jam. I have my favorites, as we all do, but I’m always looking for new sushi bars to sidle up to. When I was invited to a media tasting at Black Ship Little Katana, a sister restaurant to Katana and Little Katana (inside the Galleria and over on Travis in Uptown, respectively), […]

Sneak Peek Q&A: A Chat with Top Knot’s Chef Angela Hernandez

Prior to its exciting opening next Wednesday night, I sat down with chef Angela Hernandez to ask her a few questions about Top Knot. It’s one of my favorite interviews of late. Head to the Dallas Observer’s Food and Drink blog to read what she had to say in my Top Knot sneak peek.   […]

Uchi Dallas Opens Tonight. Here’s a Peek Inside, and a Q&A with the Chefs

Uchi Dallas opens tonight. FINALLY! This following is a post of a piece I wrote for The Dallas Observer’s Food & Drink blog. You can also read it there if you’d like.  Uchi means “naked” in Japanese, um Swahili. Makes sense, when you think about it. Not because every “foodie” (shudder) in town is all, […]

foodbitch featured on DFW Style Daily!

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 […]

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 […]

@CityofAte #CROSSPOST: Sushi Bayashi is Open in Trinity Groves

The following is a repost of my First Look at Sushi Bayashi in Trinity Groves that appeared yesterday on The Dallas Observer’s City of Ate food blog.       Do you speak Trinity Groves? If you do, then you’re well versed in Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, southern American dialects, sweet nothings and … beer. Well, […]

@CityofAte #CROSSPOST: Sushi on McKinney: A Love Story

For those of you who didn’t know, I was in a relationship… with Sushi on McKinney. It was “my place.” Everyone has a sushi place, right? The one they feel at home inside. The place with decent prices and great quality and perfect rice. When you eat sushi at other spots, you wish you were […]
