South American Food, Accomplished Writers and Feathery Duck: This Week In Dallas Dining

It's Friday if you haven't noticed. Hopefully you have some weekend plans? If you're still looking be sure to check out Lauren's events guide, but don't run out the door just yet.

Let's wrap this week up, first.

This week I reviewed Joyce and Gigi's, the new South American restaurant in East Dallas that's turning a lot of heads. Stop in for a great steak and be sure to check out their impressive cocktails.

Elsewhere on CoA we talked to Daniel Vaughn, the newly minted Barbecue Editor at Texas Monthly and Alice Laussade was nominated for her second James Beard Award.

We also declared our wine independence, and made some candied bacon. And because a week at CoA, without some alcohol is no week at all, we talked craft beer and checked in on Smyth, the new speakeasy in Uptown.

Over on the Eats Blog, Mark Vamos reviewed Joice and Gigi's as well, awarding three stars. And keeping in step with the South American theme Leslie Brenner has a spot on a new Brazilian steak house in Frisco.

Side Dish has a story on International Bakery Cuban Dulceria's visit from Khloe Kardashian. I still can't figure out why she didn't get the cubano. And Culture Map has a guide to some of the city's more notable veggie burgers -- whatever those are.

Entree Dallas has an interview with Garreth Dickey, the chef at Dish. Look at that shot of those chicken liver toasts!

And check out Katie Walsh, on Texas Eats, turning what looks like some very fresh (frozen) duck breasts into a compelling gumbo. Watch out for feathers.

That's all I see this week. Enjoy your weekend and we'll see you right back here on Monday.
