Meat, in its many exotic forms, took center stage this week in local food writing, from steak tartare and meat loaf in the Morning News food reviews, to meatballs and veggie-friendly (but primarily meat-serving) restaurants on City of Ate.
The Week in Review(s):
- Your own Dallas Observer: Lemongrass is the site of this week's review, where Dave finds the spring rolls excellent, but the servers loyal to a fault.
Dallas Morning News: Leslie Brenner finds the rabbit "lusty, tender and delicious" at Adelmo's Ristorante. Also, contributor Kim Pierce says everything would be just fine at Po-Bill's Cafe, if only everything tasted like the meat loaf.
Highlights from City of Ate:
Dude Food: Fireside Pies
The dude's trip to Fireside takes off in the comments section, as debate rages over the proper application of meatballs on a pizza.
Short Orders: Hook, Line & Sinker
Dave's take on the seafood standby, one of the few Uptown spots that caters to the steak and potatoes crowd too.
