KRLD Restaurant Week Begins

Posted by    |    August 15th, 2011 at 9:59 pm

The ultimate foodie event of the year is upon us! KRLD’s Restaurant Week begins today. This is a great time to have a try restaurants that’s prices may have intimated you. Also, many restaurants have items on their menu that are only offered during Restaurant Week, such as Chamberlain’s Duck Confit Spring Rolls. You have to try this!

It’s a perfect time to book summer dining deals at 130 regional hot spots opening up tables, and currently accepting reservations for this special giveback opportunity supporting the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home the week of August 15-21, 2011. The event continues through September 4, 2011.

The event showcases North Texas’ thriving culinary scene, offers tasty three-course prix fixe dinner priced at only $35/person (tax, tip and drinks billed separately). The icing on the cake is that you help support local fine dining establishments and two great charities – making a $7 donation to either the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas or Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth. Last year they raised over $600,000 for these great organizations.

BONUS TIP: Make a purchase of $25 or more at any Central Market location, to receive a certificate redeemable for a FREE fourth course valid at participating restaurants.

Restaurant critic Luke with his "Dutch Baby"

We tend to be a fairly skeptical family when it comes to most claims — “Best Dry Cleaner,” “Best Service,” “Biggest Selection” — we hear it all the time. So, when we ventured over to the new Original Pancake House in Grapevine, we were skeptical of claims that their pancakes would be truly remarkable.

Their location is a little hard to find, having moved into the former Denny’s location on William D. Tate (close to Hooters and Bone Daddy’s if that helps)  Upon arrival, we were greeted by everyone, including the owners, and the whole staff exuded enthusiasm including our server who wanted to know all our names (and remembered them through the whole meal).

In addition to a wide variety of pancakes, they boast two signature items: the Apple Pancake, a single large pancake smothered with sauteed apples and cinnamon sugar; and the “Dutch Baby.”
