In the heat of summer, finding places to have a drink that aren't dark and air-conditioned caves becomes a challenge. Enter Henderson Avenue's The Porch, a casual brasserie for those of us with no veranda at home. When the heat comes, fans blow a cooling but oddly humid mist that does its best to keep despair at bay. You could have a few pints here, swilling them down while enjoying a fried-chicken salad you wanted to be healthy but which is definitely not. If you'd rather be honest with yourself, you could go with the Stodg burger, named after Dallas lawyer Steve Stodghill. It's packed with tomato, onion, melted cheddar and a fried egg on a bun smeared with foie gras butter. Other stand-out decadent dishes include a baked mac and cheese accented with cubes of smoked ham and crusted in panko, and sliders heaped with brisket and slaw. You wish you had a porch like this at home.
