Dining in Denton: LSA Burger

Article and photography by DWDJ Contributor Anna Price Sometimes you just want a fantastic burger and a great atmosphere, and LSA Burger wins on all counts. When you walk into the restaurant, you’re immediately met with a giant version of the Last Supper, complete with Willie Nelson laughing right next to Jesus. But the real fun happens on the rooftop bar, recently expanded. The rooftop overlooks the beautiful Denton Square and hosts murals by local artists showing off their skills. If you are lucky enough to get a rooftop spot during sunset, you’ll be able to participate in LSA’s sunset toast, featuring local Denton brews. On weekends, you can enjoy some of the best musical acts in Denton County. On a Texas fall evening, not much can beat it... ...Except when it comes to the food. LSA Burger is, of course, known for their perfectly cooked and seasoned burgers. Juicy but not greasy, LSA burgers are topped with combinations of flavors that elevate but don’t

Sunday Brunch, Italian Style at CiboDivino Marketplace

CiboDivino Marketplace, a popular casual Italian eatery and shop in Oak Cliff's SylvanThirty, is now offering a new brunch menu. The exciting new menu features dishes crafted by Chef Daniele Puleo which can be paired with PULEO Prosecco cocktails by the glass or by the carafe. Available only on Sundays from 11am-3pm, the new offering brings just another good reason to visit the chic European marketplace and cafe. As fall weather arrives, take advantage of the beautifully renovated Italian Terraza. The new menu is inspired by the world travels merged with Chef Puleo's Sicilian roots. Each entree comes with a side of fresh fruit. I was torn between a number of options.  The Colazione Toscana with Tuscan herb potatoes comes topped with eggs in an artichoke salsa calabrese and crisp onion cloud. Bistecca e Uova (Steak and Eggs) also taunted my palate. I ended up ordering the Uova Fritte (shown at top of page) with fried egg, crispy bacon, diced tomatoes, and sliced jalap

Don't Tell Supper Club

There are some things that are more fun kept among friends. Some experiences, some meals, some destinations that are for the few, the thirsty, the elite. Don't Tell Supper Club is one of those places. The newly opened 10,000 square foot restaurant/nightclub seems like the type of place that would be perfectly comfortable were it located in the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Lucky for you, it's in downtown Dallas. Hashtag blessed. A cool, dark, space that serves dinner Thursday-Saturday from 6-10 and then transitions into a nightclub, Don't Tell features a menu designed by celeb chef Tre Wilcox and entertainment provided by magicians, contortionists, musicians, and burlesque dancers. Truly, anything could happen when you walk down the roped-off red carpet and into those double doors. (Valet your car right next door - it's complimentary - or of course grab a Lyft.) Inside the double doors awaits a carnival of cocktails, food, and performance art. Chandeliers i

Game On At Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse

Howdy, Dallas diners! How would y'all like to find a different sort of steakhouse destination? A real, Texan, unpretentious destination with a patio, good cocktail program, and more wild game than you could possibly eat in one sitting? Make you happier than a pig in mud? I've got just the thing to butter your biscuit. Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse is owned by the second largest ranch in the country - you guessed it - YO Ranch. The namesake ranch is in Kerrville, Texas, and spans 50 square miles. Named after army captain Youngs O Coleman, and sold in 1888 to captain Charles Shriner, an original Texas ranger, the story of Y.O.

Ranch is the perfect destination to take visitors to Texas for the first time, or just for people who love wild game. Chef Tony Street takes classic ingredients and prepares them with modern coo
