 We have been buzzing over Dallas Observer’s ‘Best Of’ Dallas 2011 picks all afternoon.  When I sat down to go through all the winners I was thrilled to see Deep Ellum all over the picks.

Here’s a low down on Dallas Observer’s picks from Deep Ellum.


Deep Ellum Art Walk

The Deep Ellum Art Walk is like no other art event in Dallas. Deep Ellum, an incubator of creativity, offers cutting edge art and soul for the passionate free spirit as well as for the discriminating art patron.

The 11th Semi-Annual Deep Ellum Art Walk is Saturday, September 24, 2011 from 6-10PM in Deep Ellum and Exposition Park. The galleries of Deep Ellum and Expo Park will open their doors to the public for art viewing, shopping, music, food and drink. The event is free and most people can easily walk from gallery to gallery. The DART Green Line is available to take patrons from the Deep Ellum and Baylor stations to the Fair Park station in the Expo Park area. The galleries feature paintings, photography, sculpture, experiential and performance art in styles ranging from classic to modern.

Uncle Uber’s Sammich Shop

The YouPlus staffers love going about town for lunch and I steered the group to Uncle Uber’s Sammich Shop yesterday.  It’s brand spankin new and already had a good sized lunch crowd chowing down some yummy sammiches.

The seven of us ordered all over the menu and each made pleasant sounds as we enjoyed our meal.  Reid Slaughter looked joyful when he saw his Smokin Turkey was real “thanksgiving style” turkey and not deli sliced.  Brandon Carmichael had to call his wife and tell her how good his Bacon and Goat Cheese was.  We all stared at Justin Ransom‘s Roast Beef with provolone cheese and said “next time”.  Jun and Jonathan made healthier choices with the Blackened Fish and Veggie BunME and Laura Stillo and me chose the grilled Chicken Breast.  With Hand Cut Fries all around dipped in Smokey Habanero Ranch we all agreed that this will become our consistent go-to lunch spot.

My favorite moment was when one of the prideful employees looked into the dining room full of people and just lit up with a smile ear to ear.  As a Deep Ellum home owner it is so great to see all these new restaurants come in and give us no reason to travel outside of our four streets to eat anything we’re craving.

Keep it up Uber!
