Even these dark, ominous skies looming all around us, don't make it less true: today is May 1, and summer's right around the corner. That means patios, pools and mint juleps (or Cheladas) -- and another week of highlights from City of Ate.
The Week in Review(s):
- Your own Dallas Observer: A few trips to a Carrollton strip mall transport Dave to a Peruvian family kitchen, or something close to it, a trip he recommends in his review of Inca's.
- Dallas Morning News: The gloves come off in Leslie Brenner's take-down of The Old Warsaw, while contributor Kim Pierce finds the simple pleasures -- meat and sauce -- at Off the Bone.
Texas Monthly: Five Sixty gets the Pat Sharpe once-over in this month's issue.
Highlights from City of Ate:
