    ​Sitting at Bolsa in Oak Cliff, snacking on a Boar's Head Reuben, I asked my bartender about the small, run down-looking taqueria across the street. "You eat at that place?" I asked him. "Too much," he replied, lamenting that they sometimes closed just before his shift ended at Bolsa, often leavin ... More >>

    Cafe Madrid: Rain Couldn't Dampen the Tapas,
    But Mr. Pedestrian Did

    ​A week ago, two friends and I ate dinner at Café Madrid. One had never eaten there -- shame on her.
