Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Getting of the beaten path and trying new things can be especially rewarding when of comes to food, and this week on City of Ate proved it. From a Hophead excursion to Bonnaroo, to a taste of new gelato flavors for summer, we brought plenty of ways to avoid the same old thing.

The Week in Review(s):

  • Your own Dallas Observer: Salum is one spot worth staying in the neighborhood for, Dave writes this week, and well worth the trip if you're not from around there.
  • Dallas Morning News: Leslie Brenner finds plenty to recommend at AVA... and even more to  dislike--although you'll find an entirely different take in next week's Observer. Contributor Kim Pierce is impressed by a few good takes on pan-Asian at Lemongrass Asian Bistro...although you might think she's more than a bit off when you find canned asparagus in the soup.

Highlights from City of Ate:

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
