Breakfast Restaurant Yolk Unveils New Dallas Branch

By Valerie Jarvie, Contributor

Yolk, be my Valentine!

Now open in Preston Center, the third Metroplex location (following One Arts Plaza and Fort Worth’s Sundance Square) of Yolk, a Chicago-based breakfast and lunch specialist, won my heart at a media dinner last week showcasing the concept’s signature dishes.

Yolk features hearty portions of tasty traditional breakfast dishes and soup, salad and sandwich options for lunch, with special nuances. Case in point: Yolk’s version of Chicken and Waffles, a generous plate of juicy fried chicken breast with a crunchy crust over waffles inflected with bits of bacon, all the better topped with sausage gravy and accompanied by a side of maple syrup. Deeeevine.

Rise and Shine with The Conservatory at the Crescent Court’s Power Breakfast

By Valerie Jarvie, Contributor

Ooh, la, la, a Diva-worthy place for breakfast and lunch! An elegant, airy Asia-accented room in the Hotel Crescent Court was the setting for a lunch event last week to introduce the hotel’s new chef and a menu for The Conservatory.

Management of the Hotel Crescent Court changed in June, when a Fort Worth-based real estate group (which owns the neighboring Ritz-Carlton Dallas and Arizona’s famed Canyon Ranch, too, by the way) bought the Crescent Court office, residential and retail development from Chinese investors. The iconic Uptown property festooned with fanciful ironwork was developed decades ago by Caroline Rose Hunt. Among the first changes the new owners made was to recruit fresh talent to oversee the culinary operations of the 220-room hotel within.

Hopdoddy Helps You Keep Your Resolution Delicious

By Kelli McClain, Contributor

I like burgers! Most people do, but with the new year starting and everyone making resolutions, I needed to find a solution to the burger situation because I don’t want to give them up. With that in mind, I went to Hopdoddy Burger Bar — the Austin-based upscale burger joint with a bar, friendly staff and areas to do some prime people-watching — which is promoting its lighter menu options alongside the burgers we all know and love.

Dallas Restaurant Baboush Sets The Mediterranean Mood

By Chris Roclevitch, Contributor

You might miss Baboush, the Lebanese and Moroccan restaurant tucked comfortably between Cork Wine Bar and Sushi Zushi, because it is, at first, nothing out of the ordinary. But once you open the door and cross the threshold into the dimly lit space, your senses are sent directly into overload.

The decor at this Dallas restaurant is phenomenal as authentic Moroccan lanterns cascade from the ceiling and provide just enough light to set the mood. The Moroccan tiles in the bar area add that subtle yet familiar vision of what we think of as quintessential Morocco. But what hits you the most is the aroma that billows out from the kitchen, where all of the magic happens.

Right across the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge sits the crown jewel that is Trinity Groves, a great place to meet friends and take family for stunning views of the Dallas skyline and grab some serious grub. Just last month, a new Mexican restaurant landed in some prime real estate (previously Kitchen LTO) there. Welcome to Dallas, Beto & Son!

The restaurant is the brainchild of Julian Rodarte and his father Beto. Julian is a recent graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and is the youngest restaurateur in Dallas, at the age of 23 years old. Meanwhile, Beto Rodarte is the unsung hero of many of Trinity Grove’s owner Phil Romano’s Nacho Mama’s branches, along with developing many of the signature dishes at Chili’s Grill & Bar.
Beto & Son offers familiar Mexican dishes with a modern twist to go along with a bar program that offers fresh margaritas, juices and flavors of Mexico.

Let’s take a look at some of the offerings that Beto & Son will whip up for its guests.
