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 […]

Until relatively recently, like many Dallassites, a […]

#VIPeek at Pinkberry’s New Chocolate Hazelnut

Breaking news: Pinkberry is delicious. Seriously though, the folks at Pinkberry know what they’re doing, and I’m not just saying that because they keep inviting me over to sample their special new recipes. This isn’t rocket science. You put good quality, tasty toppings on some Pinkberry and BAM–it’s fantastic. The new flavor is Chocolate Hazelnut, […]

Yesterday, Monica Greene’s introduced her new restaurant – Monica’s Nueva Cocina – to Dallas. The new space is large and colorful — playing with light and art without restraint.
