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 in bird cages soar above the bar, while a brick wall ensconced by dramatic crimson curtains teases for scenes to come.

A stage waits for the performers to arrive. Meanwhile a magician roams the room performing disappearing coin tricks and swallowing his sword. Casual, right?

The staff greets with a complimentary cocktail. On this evening, a Caribbean punch.

The waitress explained to us that most of the menu is designed to be shared, tapas style, and the offerings can vary from one weekend to the next. There are only two entrees on the menu, and both are served for 2 or more people. Sounds like a great chance to double down on apps and drinks, no? We tried the Big Eye Tuna Tartare - with scallions, Yuzu, Togarashi, and black radish. The Smoked Yellowtail Sashimi was also recommended, and we did enjoy the grapefruit, jalapeno, cucumber, and avocado puree that complemented the fish quite well.

The cocktails were all served with dramatic presentation. Take, for instance, the Old Fashioned titled "Skinny's Remedy", a Rittenhouse Rye with Benedictine, Cocchi Torrino, house made root beer bitters, served in a medicine bottle.

During our visit a duo appeared to perform some tunes. At other times, especially later, the entertainment varies.

Part of the fun in Don't Tell lies in just looking around, taking in the fun and quirky details at every turn.

If you're looking for a place to drink, dine, or be entertained, consider Don't Tell for an experience unlike anything else to be found in North Texas.

And remember, let's keep this one between friends, 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 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
