Food + Cocktails at Stellar



If you've been looking for a hotspot for cocktails and late night bites, look no further. Stellar Dallas is quite the posh place to see and be seen while enjoying cleverly named drinks and memorable sharable dishes.

Upon arriving at Stellar, located right on bustling Henderson Avenue, I instantly fell in love with the adorable view from the outside, and the stunning mid-century modern decor inside. I found all of my favorite colors (minus pink)and textures throughout the space and instantly noticed a few of my favorite food items on the menu. Naturally, I was excited to see what lie in store at Stellar.




It's Dallas, so of course, there were cocktails to begin. The quirky names and lengthy ingredient list made for a fun few minutes of menu reading. Keep in mind, CRAFT cocktails do take a few minutes to make (this ain't your college bar), so hold your pretty little horses for a minute,  your delicious fancy drinks will be out soon enough, k? :) The "Word from the Bird" and the "What's Buzzin' Cuzzin" were big hits at our table, crafted to perfection. Off to a fab start while we waited for our grub. Obvi.





The food menu at Stellar felt exciting yet familiar, with modern American interpretations of classic dishes. The mussels weren't available on our visit, so we opted to start by splitting the Texas poutine (y'all know I can't pass up anything mentioning queso). Other shareables include duck wings, carpaccio, calamari, and edamame hummus. There are a handful of handhelds, salads, and just a couple entree-sized specialties. The Lobster Mac and Cheese, made with tortellini pasta and an absolutely perfect poblano pepper mornay sauce absolutely stole the show. Even if you just want to split it like we did, don't miss this fabulous dish. It'll be going on my list of best dishes I ate this year.

Stellar is in development stages of rolling out some additional menu items soon, so stay tuned.




Stellar Kitchen + Cocktails is open daily from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. Stay posh, Dallas!

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'…
