Yeah, I think David's show aired during the late sixties and very early seventies.

I cannot help with the Worcestershire powder but I sure do remember David Wade. He was doing food and cooking shows in Dallas about the same time as Julia Child was doing her shows. I never missed his shows.

Knife Restaurant Dallas

Enjoy.

I'd probably order one of those 2+inch heavily dry aged prime Porterhouse steaks to share with someone.
Medium rare of course.

Dallas area prime beef

If your sous vide beef ribs don't work out, next time take a nice ride to Taylor, Texas for a visit to Louie Mueller BBQ and eat the very best smoked BBQ beef ribs in the entire world.

Best BBQ in downtown/uptown. Also Gluten-free breakfast recs please!

I believe Pecan Lodge is open until 10:00pm on Friday and Saturday.

Yes, their lunch (only) is from 11:00am~3:00pm. Unless of course they sell out earlier.

Been to them all and like Slow Bone the best by far. Especially for their incredible fatty brisket and excellent sides.

I like Pecan Lodge for their huge beef ribs. Not as good as Louie Mueller BBQ in Taylor but, best in Dallas.

Lot's of excellent breakfast places in Dallas. My personal faves are Original Pancake House, Crossroads Diner and, Lucky's.

Any Chinatown-ish Little Saigon-ish area?

For Dim Sum, in addition to Kirin Court, I'd try Maxim's, J.S. Chen, and Hong Kong Royal.

Dallas area prime beef

I buy my prime, dry aged NY strips at Wholefoods. $22.95lb.

However, you might also like Rudolph's Meat Market in Deep Ellum. They dry age their prime beef in-house

Also try Central Market, and Kuby's. I would imagine they also have what you're looking for.

Also, First Chinese BBQ in the Dallas area is CASH ONLY. The only FCBBQ that takes credit cards is their Austin location.

As it happens, I also love Bistro B even though many here do not.

Just across the parking lot from BB is La' Me. The very best Banh Mi anywhere. Their bread is amazing!

Jeng Chi is noted for their terrific Taiwanese boiled dumplings and juicy soup dumplings. However, my two favorite dishes are their (medium spicy) Twice Cooked Pork and Golden Beef. I also enjoy their Leek Turnover and Clam Soup.

I haven't been to Yao Fuzi in a few years (off my beaten path).
The last time we tried to go was Christmas and there was a two hour wait! We did not stay.

In Richardson, the very best (IMHO) Cantonese restaurant in the metroplex is First Chinese BBQ.

Also nearby FCBBQ is the China Town Center with many Chinese restaurants covering every part of China including Taiwanese and Szechuan styles of cooking. Especially notable are Jeng Chi (Taiwanese), King Sichuan and, Royal Sichuan.

Also, a must try is Yao Fuzi in Plano. Considered by some the best Chinese in the area.

The best Vietnamese restaurants are located in Garland. Not terribly far from Richardson.

BYOB options in Central and North Dallas?

We enjoyed a terrific dinner last night at 20 Feet Seafood Joint last night.
Great seafood and, BYOB!

Explain yourself Dallas

I'm afraid I have to agree with your assessment of the situation.

My own opinion brings it down to their particular location on W. Jefferson Blvd. As in, not in a "trendy" restaurant driven area such as Bishop Arts, Lower Greenville, and Deep Ellum to name just a few.

It's a damn shame too because the fabulous Reyes family provide a superior dining experience thats comparable to other popular, "chef driven" restaurants in Dallas.

I think, had they snapped up the bungalow building next to Jonathon's on No. Beckley when it became vacant a while back, their situation would be quite different now.

Recommendation for small group dinner near Adolphus Hotel

Second CBD Provisions in the Joule Hotel. Also, Stephan Pyles on Ross Avenue.

Soft shell crabs?

If anybody has them, Sea Breeze, Rex Seafood, and TJ's would probably have them.

BYOB options in Central and North Dallas?

Sorry about the duplication. My bad.

Need a Dallas restaurant recommendation

St. Martin's Wine Bistro might be good for you. Its dark inside and the mood is romantic with live piano music. And the food is pretty good.

And now I'm hot to try Small Brew Pub, myself.

Thanks for reporting back. Very happy to know you ate well and enjoyed our vibrant city.

Y'all come back soon.

Sounds good! Glad to see you have reservations at FT33.
If you go to Slow Bone for lunch, try to avoid Wednesdays. Both Jack (owner) and Ann are off on Wednesday.

Hattie's food is quite good and the restaurant's lovely decor makes you feel like your on the coast in South Carolina.

Their food is cooked in the style of South Carolina's "Low Country" cuisine.

I'm especially fond of their Shrimp & Grits.

After reading gavlist's above comments, I'd have to second his thoughts and suggestions.

On your way, East you mean.

Sorry, I haven't been out that way to Tyler in a hundred years so I won't be helpful at all in that direction. The town of Canton would be your best bet but I guess you'd have to Google Canton, Texas to get a feel as to what sounds good to you. Chances are, it will only be BBQ, (probably, nothing as good as what's in Dallas) Tex-Mex, (like you don't have Mexican food in So. California). So, Chicken fried steak would be my best suggestion.

I just Googled "Yelp restaurants for Canton, Texas" and found a few "country cooking" style restaurants in Canton. One called Buttermilk's has 4-1/2 stars for 42 reviews.

All sound very good!

Personally, I'd replace Small Brew Pub with Meddlesome Moth.
Incredible craft beer selections on tap and excellent food.

You'd love FT33 if you can get in. Grange Hall is fairly new but getting excellent buzz. You might also consider Gemma. But,
there again, a very hot ticket nowadays. It may be too late to get in.

Don't forget, Lucia has four seats at the kitchen "bar" open for walk in's. Difficult on a Friday or Saturday but doable during the week. See if you can get someone at the Belmont to help with that.

Have fun and report back if you were happy with all our suggestions.
