Breakfast, Booze And Cookin' At The Grape: This Week In Dallas Dining
Better than a cheese steak
Restaurant week is wrapping up this weekend, and the weather promises to be a little more relaxed. Seems like a good time for a little patio drinking and perhapsa little pesticide bathing. Or maybe you're off to the Londoner tomorrow morning to watch the opening weekend of the English Premier League with Gavin. Either way we've got a week to wrap up before we get out of here.
This week I reviewed Rosemont, the new Deep Ellum breakfast, lunch and brunch spot by Tracy Miller. I found some beautiful plates there, but some service and cooking errors clouded my meals. Miller's other restaurant, Local, however is a pretty consistent concept. With some time, perhaps Rosemont will follow in the footsteps of its older sibling soon.
Over on the Eats Blog, Leslie reviews Pepper Smash, the comic book themed restaurant way, way up in Plano. She gave the space two stars but wasn't impressed with too much of the mixology. She also points out that Cedars Social has a new chef. Kyle McClellan has moved back to NYC.
On Side Dish Nancy points out the FT33's sommelier is the best in all of Texas. Matt McCallister is building a heck of a stable over in the Design District.
And the Taco Trail has a new look, and a new review of the La Banqueta location in Arlington. The suadero is as good as ever.
That's all I see this week. Check us out next week when we check out some East Dallas kebabs and figure out what the heck college kids eat.
