Arc en Ciel

I recently heard that Arc en Ciel has reopened in the same place in Garland. Has anyone been? I really missed this place.

Where is a good independent meat market in Dallas?

I would tell, but then, everyone would know about the best kept secret in town.

White tablecloth restaurants

Twin, I follow your posts, and respect your opinion, but Le Bilboquet??? give me a break. Butcher paper on white tablecloth does not count. For the prices they charge, they should be ashamed. I am wondering if consumers just don't care anymore.

White tablecloth restaurants

Is it just me or I am behind the times? What's happened to white tablecloths? Not even the Mansion on Turtle Creek has them anymore.

Private Dining Room Suggestions

Adelmo's Ristorante, On Cole ave. in Dallas, has an upstairs dining room that would fit your needs. The food is wonderful. I hosted a 75th birthday party there a couple of years ago.

Birthday Dinner Suggestions

If you like seafood, Lefty's on Beltline in Addison is just wonderful. I have such a hard time choosing between their menu and specials. All great.

recs for solo dining, near Warwick Melrose Hotel?

Oh please, shame on you Veggo, so because one critic, whose word hardly has any weight, "trashes" a place, you're going to take her word as the gospel??? and repeat it on such a public board! Why don't YOU try it first. I think they do a good job.

Birthday Lunch or Brunch Suggestions-Dallas

If you're looking for an intimate place, Adelmo's on Cole has a second floor and a very nice lunch menu. That would be my suggestion.

best pita bread in Dallas supermarkets or bakeries?

Pita is cherished by all. What Nonna, Italian restaurant, serves in Dallas, is essentially pita bread.

best pita bread in Dallas supermarkets or bakeries?

Sara bakery, by far has the best pita bread. I like Izmir, but I don't think they make their own.

Romanesco

I am looking for Romanesco ( looks like broccoli but a lighter green) in the Dallas/Forth Worth area. Fall is its prime season and I'm wondering if I'm just a little bit hasty!

seafood broth

I'm wondering if anyone out there has ever seen packaged seafood broth. I see all varieties of chicken, beef, and vegetable broths but no seafood.

Restaurants everyone loves--except you

Hattie's, Fearing's, Primo's, and the most overhyped, over rated, Nonna.

AIFW Caesar Contest

Actually, it's a lot of fun, food and wine. My last visit was about 5 years ago. All the chefs try to outdo the others, and put out quite an accompaniment to their caesar salads ranging from tenderloin to lobster. At the time, restaurant gift certificates were part of the attraction. Just go and have fun.

Calle Doce--Am I missing something?

I've been to their OC location once, and their Skillman location once. Both instances were underwhelming. Now, I do know people who swear by their food and drinks.

Help finding the right restaurant

We went to Adelmo's the other night for their restaurant week menu. Clearly, their menu is more Italian these days. The shrimp risotto with peas was to die for. We opted to pay pay more for their zuppa di pesce and it was divine. They are not skimpy with the portions or quality. We definitely got more than our money's worth.

Aurora closing

I know some people do not care for Avner personally, but he is still a great Chef. Best of luck to Avner, Celeste and family.

Moving to Dallas - Need Some Help!

Urbano cafe behind Jimmy's is very good and BYOB. However, the owner can get pushy and try to get you in and out. Samar is O.K. after 9 p.m. Adelmo's on Cole is very good, relaxed. Apparently they have a new Chef. Great wine list and nightly specials.

It's a spice blend. You can make it yourself . They're all spices that can be found anywhere.

If you haven't tried Tukta Thai at Plano Rd. and Walnut Hill, you are missing out.
