Chelsea Corner: a Dallas Classic Reborn

Some places, when you, enter, immediately feel like home. This was the case for me at Chelsea Corner, a revitalized version of the original 1974 original, located at the corner of McKinney and Monticello. With the feel of a college town house party plus a crave-worthy and comforting menu, Chelsea Corner has many layers to be peeled back.

Since their re-emergence on the Dallas dining scene, the new Chelsea Corner has seen steady crowds, from old-school fans reminiscing about their old haunt to newcomers seeking to create their own memories in the reincarnated space.

Chelsea Corner was known for their pizza, so they've brought that back as menu mainstay. Also don't miss the deviled eggs, which are made from Chef Sarah's grandma's recipe, and instantly took me back to my own Mama Jo's recipe back home in Alabama. The tender, juicy Steak Sandwich also was a surprise favorite.

Their new brunch menu includes staples like chicken and waffles, omelettes, benedicts, and breakfast sandwiches, washed down with Bloody Marys, Micheladas, and more. Brunch at Chelsea Corner is served Saturday and Sunday from 10:30am-3pm. 

During the week, check out their "La la land Tuesdays" complete with live jazz with half priced from 8pm-11pm each Tuesday,  and live music every Thursday from 7pm-11pm. 

With so much buzz, a space that feels like home, and bites that satisfy, I think Chelsea Corner's heyday is back for a second round.

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to
