Belly & Trumpet Will Begin Sunday Brunch this Weekend

Posted by    |    April 5th, 2013 at 4:40 pm

You’ve probably noticed the elaborately scripted sign for Belly & Trumpet on the quaint little Uptown house that used to house The Bowery. Speaking of which - The Bowery… not so good. Belly & Trumpet… really, really good. But as most new restaurants tend to do, it was only open for dinner when it opened in mid-February. Thankfully, Executive Chef Brian Zenner’s (Chef de Cuisine, Oak) perfectly-balanced and innovative sharable plates will be available for brunch-philes starting this Sunday, April 7, and from the looks of it, it’s going to be really, really good.

“We are striving to extend beyond the ordinary in everything we do.  We are challenging ourselves to be inventive and thoughtful, often taking a classic favorite and adding an exciting twist.  Regardless, our primary goal is for our food to be consistently soulful and delicious, “ explains Zenner.

JoJo Eating House & Bar Opens for Dinner Tonight

Posted by    |    November 19th, 2012 at 10:30 am

JoJo Eating House and BarThe updated Euro eatery, JoJo Eating House & Bar opens Monday, November 19 with chef/owner Laurent Poupart at the helm. If a menu that includes lobster, oysters, tuna tartare, artisan pizzas and a salad with truffle dressing and deviled eggs doesn’t immediately grab your attention, Poupart’s resume certainly will.

The Strasbourg native began working at age 14 at Le Crocodile, a three star Michelin restaurant in his hometown. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of Strasbourg, Poupart served in the army as a private chef for the General of the French Force. The young chef went on to work at several Michelin restaurants under such Master Chefs as Gilles Goujon and Jean-Marie Gautier.

His first American venture was at Les Celebrites, a restaurant awarded the AAA Five Diamond award and “Best Restaurant Overall” in New York City by Zagat . Clientele included stars such as Pierce Brosnan, Jane Fonda and Tina Turner.  Since 2005,  Poupart has been working as a private chef for clients such as Mike Moreno (his partner in JoJo), Gerald Ford, Kevin Costner, Cindy Crawford, Kenny G, and Hollywood Producer Joel Silver.

You’d think the Big D is just lucky to add such an accomplished chef to its list of culinary masters, but for Poupart, opening a restaurant in Dallas is a dream come true.

“I have traveled a lot in my life, but when I came to Dallas 3 ½ years ago for the first time, I knew it was the city for me,” said Poupart.

Designed by the well-known restaurant design firm Plan B Group, the same group that just did East Hampton Sandwich Company, JoJo Eating House & Bar was designed using simple, sophisticated and clean lines in order to create a residential feel.

JoJo Eating House & Bar will open tonight for dinner only, with lunch service beginning mid-December. Brunch service and pizza delivery will begin January 2013.  JoJo Eating House & Bar is located at 2626 Howell Street, Dallas, Texas 75204.

Dream Cafe A Great Place for Empty Stomachs

Posted by    |    January 25th, 2011 at 11:12 am

Brunch lovers rejoice! If you’re looking for a cozy spot to enjoy brunch at any time of the day, any day of the week, Dream Cafe has got you covered. Not only does Dream Cafe offer brunch all the time, but they also have lunch and dinner options that vary from dinner salads to stir fry to Greek pitas. There’s something for everyone here.


Picture an old-fashioned diner with booths, but less retro and more like sitting at your kitchen table at your parents’ house. The environment is casual and inviting. There’s seating outside and even an enclosed porch area that is heated during the cooler days. A mini-playground sits right in front and mothers, young couples, groups of friends, and sometimes even celebrities (we saw a guy from American Idol there) fill the café.
Serving Dallas for 20 years, Dream Café offers fresh and healthy ingredients from different tastes and cultures. The “Dream” Eggs Benedict was nothing short of perfection. The hollandaise sauce was just right, the eggs great, and the spinach and cherry tomatoes added a healthier kick to the dish. (more…)
