New Spring 2018 Menu at Lazy Dog Restaurant

Story and photography by Kate Sherga 

Spring is here, which means two important things for Dallas foodies – fresh spring ingredients and perfect patio weather! Experience the best of both at Lazy Dog in Village on the Parkway where the new spring menu will make your taste buds blossom.

The seasonal cocktail menu is primed and ready for thirsty patrons, with bold takes on tried-and-true- classics like the Honey Thyme Old Fashioned and the Huckleberry Mule. Or try something fruity and fresh like the Watermelon Margarita or the Peaches & Moonshine.

Start out your meal with some shareable bites like the Charred Onion Dip with Rosemary Waffle
Chips that are cut and crisped to perfection. Dining with a smaller group? Opt for the Street Corn Wheels, which come four to an order. The corn has just the right amount of char, topped with a creamy queso blanco and a slight kick without being too spicy.

Good news for vegetarians! Between the Burrata & Roast Beet Salad, the BBQ Veggie Burger and the Veggie Burger Bowl, the new spring menu has plenty of meatless options. So, if you’re like me and you’re always searching for a good restaurant that will make your carnivore friends happy while also treating your vegetarian friends to solid options where they don’t have to settle, this is the place.

My two favorite entrées from the spring menu also make the perfect duo to go halfsies on with a friend or significant other. One of you order the Burrata & Heirloom Tomato Crisp and the other order the Grilled Lemon Chicken.

Split them both and thank me later. The first dish is a flatbread featuring a burrata that is incredibly creamy and almost mousse-like in texture, combined with pesto, balsamic reduction and fresh heirloom tomatoes. The latter is a guilt-free entrée of marinated then grilled chicken with excellent veggies on the side and a tahini dipping sauce.

End the meal on a high note with the spring seasonal desserts. You could try to pick just one, but why torture yourself like that? The Peach Raspberry Hand Pie contains raspberry puree, sweet peaches, salted caramel sauce, and vanilla bean ice cream. The Lemon Cake is a delicious combo of lemon buttercream, almond flour vanilla cake (shout-out to the gluten-sensitives out there), huckleberry, lemon curd, and whipped cream.

Pro tip: Lazy Dog also does a weekend brunch. Don’t miss the Bacon ‘n Egg Mac ‘n Cheese! If you have a sweet tooth like me, be sure to get the made-to- order DonutHoles with Nutella dip.

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
