Dishcrawl Through the Best of Bishop Arts

Posted by    |    May 28th, 2013 at 4:33 pm

So there’s only 5 tickets left and about 2 and a half hours until Dallas Dishcrawl takes on the Bishop Arts District. I know it’s a dischrawl-300x200little late in the game, but these dinners sound like such a great time, I wanted to help get the word out, though they obviously don’t need it.

Each Dishcrawl lets guests taste several dishes from the top restaurants in a particular neighborhood. A narrowing down of culinary greatness in any Dallas neighborhood might be tough, but I’d assume it’s particularly challenging in the Bishop Arts District, one of the only areas in Dallas with dishes tempting enough to get me to leave my Uptown bubble.

HG Sply Co. – Lower Greenville’s new Paleo-influenced restaurant

Posted by    |    May 14th, 2013 at 2:35 pm

Lower Greenville just keeps getting cooler. The area’s newest addition, HG Sply Co., a “back to basics” concept influenced by the Paleo diet, will fit nicely with Mudsmith coffee shop, the new Londoner, Green Grocer, and the future Trader Joes. With a focus on natural, organic and often local food, the neighborhood grill created by Elias Pope and his partners Gus Antos, Mark Zahem, and Neville Govender has menu filled with items made solely from small producing American ranchers.

Owner, Elias Pope

Pope, who grew up on a ranch in Greenville, Texas says, “ We are not trying to do anything new. I tell everyone the same story – when my great grandfather walked out back to the chicken coop, grabbed eggs and cooked it up, he didn’t call it organic…he called it breakfast. We are about getting back to the basics of cooking with great ingredients from American ranchers and farmers who are passionate about their craft.”

domaine wine company - maine and sides

This photo doesn’t really go with the event, but this is how I’d like to imagine it (photo via)

We’ve discussed Main & Sides before, the service that brings a balanced, gourmet meal right to your door, and we thought it was great. Not surprisingly, other people agree, which brings us to the new partnership between Chef Shaun Collins of M&S and James Moll and Lance Storer, proprietors of Domaine Wine Company. The trio will be bringing complimentary food and wine pairings to the public on the first Saturday afternoon of every month, with the first tasting to take place on May 4, 2013 between 3 – 5 p.m. at Domaine Wine Company (3610 Oak Lawn Avenue).

The partnership between the soon-to-be only “Certified Personal Executive Chef” in Texas and a duo renowned for their knowledge of global artisanal wines is the result of the constant requests from Main & Sides clientele for suggestions on which wines to pair with each weekly menu.
