8 Reasons to Visit the New Cane Rosso at The Star in Frisco




On July 31st, Cane Rosso will open their newest location at The Star in Frisco.



If you're unfamiliar with the Neapolitan pizza brand, allow me to give you a brief rundown before we start our list of reasons you need to be there.

Since opening the original location in Deep Ellum, Cane Rosso has been on more media channels than I could possibly name, but just for starters they've been crowned Best Pizza in Dallas for multiple years by multiple publications, have been featured on The Food Network's "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives",  Eater's 38 Essential Pizzerias in the Nation, plus many more accolades I'm sure they'd be happy to fill you in on.

Founded by former corporate exec Jay Jerrier, who was inspired by his honeymoon trip to Italy to open a Neapolitan pizza concept, Cane Rosso has grown quickly to 9 locations throughout Texas, and they've even ventured into animal rescue via Cane Rosso Rescue.
Cane Rosso serves authentic, wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas, pasta, sandwiches, and salads. The kitchen is led by Naples-native Dino Santonicola,  Executive Chef and Master Pizzaiolo.

I can't really count all of the times I've personally gushed about Cane Rosso. From a true fan perspective, not a food writer, I just can't get enough of what this brand is doing. From the stellar food to the whimsical decor to the famed social media snark, this team just can't stop #winning. But I won't shut up about this brand because they're good people doing great things, and what they continue to do with each new location is truly exciting. I recently wrote about the new brunch menu at the White Rock Cane Rosso, years back I named them Best Pizza in Dallas, and one of their off-menu pizzas is a regular on my food rotation (more on that later).



Here I leave you 8 reasons to visit the new Cane Rosso at The Star in Frisco:

1. The Star Pizza. This cross between pizza and calzone is found exclusively at the Frisco location. Stuffed with Ricotta and fresh Mozzarella, then topped with heirloom tomatoes, pepperoni, and arugula, you can totally tell your trainer it's a salad and I won't tell a soul.



2. The one of a kind Stefano Ferrara-designed pizza oven in the shape of a football helmet. Shipped all the way from Italy, so you know it's gonna be legit.



3. To try their other new menu items found exclusively at the Star: Cane Rosso's wings and fried Calzones.



4. If you haven't been before to Cane Rosso, or if you're a stickler for an actual printed menu item, you might need to go just to experience The Honey Bastard. Listed on one of my 100 best bites in DFW in 2016 and heck, every year, this not-so-secret off-menu pie offers the perfect level of sass and sweetness to quench my frequent pizza hunger. Seriously. My favorite pizza in life. Bucket list this pizza. Maybe if you promise them you'll write a nice yelp review they'll make one in the shape of a star for you too. #mediaperks



5. Bathroom art like you've never seen. Talented Dallas artist Clay Stinnett creates masterpieces for all of the CR locations. This one's taken it to a whole new level.




6. Their sibling dessert hot spot - Cow Tipping Creamery is located right next door. If you aren't tempted enough by CR's delicious dessert pizzas, mosey on over to Cow Tipping Creamery for soft serve stackers you simply can't refuse.



7. Sporty patio views for days. You can see the turf of the Cowboys' outdoor practice facilities. The ultimate in people watching...




8. To see The Star in Frisco if you haven't yet! Walk around and see all of the exciting things to come, rub elbows with people I'd probably never recognize. Whatever floats your boat. It's all happening at the Star.

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 sauces. Douse wit…

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 expand, and…

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 couldn'…
