It's the end of the school year, the start of summer, and the perfect time to start thinking road trip. But before you load up on Red Vines and jerky, it's worth a look at the best of our latest news in local food.
The Week in Review(s):
- Your own Dallas Observer: Agave Tex-Mex, one of the most recent entries into the pantheon of half-Tex, half-Mex eateries, gets the Dish treatment from Dave.
- Dallas Morning News: Leslie Brenner checks out Masaryk Modern Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Lounge, while contributor Kim Pierce finds Con Fusion wanting.
Highlights from City of Ate:
The Situation Rooms
Not trying to stereotype, but here's how it looks to us: All liberals like blueberry Stoli, and conservatives (the young ones, anyway) are always down for a birthday shot.
Handle The Proof: Del Maguey Mezcal
Because Kevin Costner road movies have been built on less intriguing lines than this one: "It can be difficult to track down decent, wormless mezcal in Dallas."
Girl Drink Drunk: Dave & Buster's
Somehow, the most contentious 'Girl Drink' column yet. Come for the Shizzle, stay for the Alien Secretion.
Dividing Up a Shrinking Pie
Less appetizing than a 'pie' headline would initially suggest, Dave's Monday column tackles the question of which restaurants are most worthy of a review.
