July Openings and Closings

Anybody have an update on Towne? Last post I saw was from 7/2 so curious if it's live yet. Thinking of stopping in tonight, but don't want to wander in the rain if it's not open yet.

July Openings and Closings

Funny, I had same experience when they opened in Dallas. Food is quite good and the atmosphere in the bar area was right on, but the whole process is a bit weird. I went twice and it never seemed to flow...or maybe it was just me... I think your description is spot on, though.

Ethnic options for an Anniversary Dinner

Not sure what area of town you're considering, but my husband & I have tried Afghan Grill (Preston & George Bush) and Al-Amir (Addison) on our "Anthony Bourdain" nights recently, and enjoyed both.

Afghan Grill is (of course) Afghani, which is like a cross between Indian and Middle Eastern; the owner is quite happy to chat about the culture, food, etc. etc. which makes for an enjoyable dinner. Al Amir is Lebanese, and has the added benefit of belly-dancing and hookahs for your entertainment.

We're also big fans of both Cafe Istanbul (Lovers & Inwood) and Cafe Izmir (Lower Greenville) although those might be a bit far if you are in Lewisville.

Need a birthday dinner resturant ...

Taverna is excellent. Assuming it's the same menu as the Dallas location, it's a good price point, the food is delish, and the ambiance is lively for a group. Definitely get their Taverna Focaccia, you will be very happy you did!

Help: Hatties, Screen Door, or Tillmans?

Hattie's, with Tillman's a close second. Depends on what kind of "down home" you're in the mood for, really. Hattie's is more refined Southern, and Tillman's is more of a Texas carnivore kind of place. Since they are a few doors apart, you could be totally hedonistic and do apps & drinks at one and dinner at the other. I'm just sayin'...
