Mother's Day 2016 Restaurant Roundup

Have you made your Mother's Day reservations yet?

Your Mom likes to eat. I promise she does, and if you still insist she really doesn't, send her to me and I will find her a meal she enjoys.

Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar will open on the first floor of Legacy Tower, adjacent to the Shops at Legacy, at the southeast corner of Legacy Drive and the Dallas North Tollway.

Cocktail heaven: Cafe Herrera opens at Omni Dallas

For over 40 years, the Herrera family has been dishing out Tex-Mex to Dallas diners. The family tradition continues now at Cafe Herrera, which opened in March as the fourth and final concept at the Omni Dallas. 

The new spot is operated by Gil Bonifaz, cousin to the original Herrera's owner. The menu features lots of made-in-house ingredients, from tortillas to cocktail syrups. Traditional dishes are offered alongside more contemporary Mexican plates.

The cocktail menu offers so much more than your run-of-the-mill margaritas, which are still excellent here. They also serve numerous craft cocktails, like their Violeta, with creme de violette, grapefruit juice, and St. Germain.



Cafe Herrera is located at 665 S Lamar St, Dallas, TX.
 Open Monday–Thursday, 11 AM–10 PM
Saturday, 11 AM–midnight (kitchen closes at 11 PM) Sunday 10 AM–10 PM.

Tracy Rathbun and Lynae Fearing have hired a new Executive Chef to run the kitchen at Shinsei: Carlos Capistran. Chef Capistran started out cooking with his mother in her kitchen at home.

"We're thrilled to welcome Chef Capistran to the Shinsei family," said Rathbun and Fearing.
