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 jalapeño, and was pleased with my decision.

My dining companion tried the pancakes stuffed with ricotta, which were a delicate sweet offering, fluffy with fresh ricotta and topped with fresh fruit, powdered sugar, and a warm syrup drizzle.

The Smoked Salmon Pizza and Grilled Polenta dishes also sounded like vey unique items I'd return for. The dishes we quickly devoured washed down well with outside the norm (for Dallas) brunch cocktails like the Hibiscus (Prosecco + cranberry juice) and the Rossini (Prosecco + strawberry puree). But don't worry, if you're totally basic all day e'ry day, the classic Mimosa is still on the menu, as is the Bellini. Each is available for $5 a glass of $22 for a full carafe, including an entire bottle of Prosecco.

If you happen to visit outside of brunch hours, don't fret, as the pizzas, pastas, meats, cheeses, and of course, wine, are all there for the taking (and yes, of course, consuming). Make yourself comfortable at a table and settle in for an experience that will make you feel less like you're in the hustle and bustle of Dallas, and more like you've just checked in for a tour of the Italian countryside.

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
