If you’re in the Dallas area, it’s likely that you’ll salivate at the mention of Nick Badovinus name. He’s been part of some of Dallas’ most successful restaurants…Cuba Libre, Hibiscus, Fireside Pies, Porch…and a few years ago went out on his own to create Neighborhood Services, a small but flavor-packed restaurant on Lover’s Lane, where T Boone Pickens is said to be a regular.

I had lunch on Saturday at On-Site Kitchen and was amazed at the menu and prices! The prices are similar to fast food, but pack a powerful flavor punch!

Check out this menu!!

It’s just a notch above take-out…as they have outdoor tables and limited seating inside…

I had a burger…basically the Murph-style burger, minus the bacon (I know…I was trying to be good since I was indulging in a delicious burger!!) and fries (see…you shouldn’t have given me so much credit for not having the bacon!!). They had several sauces to use to enhance your feast and whatever I had was amazing! It was spicy, but I can’t remember the name…

OK…everything was amazing! They have these cute little deserts that they put in little snap-top plastic containers that are adorable and delicious! The cute guy taking my order gave me one of them to try. I’m from East Texas and have had the best of the best pecan pies and this one did not disappoint! Get over to the Design District and try On-Site Kitchen asap! You’ll thank me!

If you lived in Dallas in the 80′s or 90′s, chances are you remember Sfuzzi.  Back then, putting arugula on our pizza was a crazy concept and they were not afraid to go there.  Well, Robert Columbo has brought Sfuzzi back and added an organic commitment and fresh approach to his offering.

You’ll find this new swank spot just down the street from it’s previous location.  2533 McKinney Ave. @Routh Uptown.  214-953-0300

Care to join me for an original frozen Sfuzzi and talk about old times?

Double Trouble: Flea Harvey’s

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Two of my favorite worlds will collide this Saturday morning for a sure-fire guarantee of a good time!

Lee Harvey's

I love a good dive and Lee Harvey’s is one of the best dive restaurant/bar’s in Dallas complete with wood-paneled walls, illuminated beer signs and urban rascals of all kinds.  

Stop by on Sunday afternoon for Dog Day afternoon.  Their fenced-in front yard becomes a dog park while you sit back and enjoy the beverage of your choice.  Pure heaven!

This Saturday, April 3, stop by for Lee Harvey’s First Saturday Flea Market.  Admission is free and the hunt begins at 10am.  Check out this flea market’s Facebook page for more details.

You’ll find eclectic art, antique, vintage, kitsch, collectables, hand-made jewelry and wares, books, prints, furniture, toys, and odd finds.

Who wants to meet me there?

Guerrilla Fare: 48 Nights

Friday, February 19th, 2010

48 Nights

This restaurant will not last 50 nights! The team behind 48 Nights knew that when they planned it. It was specifically designed to be open for 48 nights (Mondays and Tuesdays for 6 months) and raise money for Mass Care Task Force.

48 Nights

Located in a small building at Sylvan & I30 in Dallas, the original taqueria will hold 30 people each night and will be adorned with secondhand finds (all for sale!). A few nights are already sold out, so you must plan ahead. The plan is to provide a prix-fixe menu that will afford $1,000 per night for the charity. Twenty four renowned area chefs will provide a rotating schedule and donate their time to the cause. What a deal!

48 Nights

The chef that will be cooking the night that you make reservations will remain a mystery until you arrive. I love a good mystery! It’s BYOB, $75 a person, and you must prepay on-line.
