YUMMY!!! Orange sherbet cake

I just had the same cake . . . almost 6 years later. Did you ever get the recipe?

Best Tex-Mex in Dallas 214 area

Two suggestions:

Javier's for classic continental Mexican (your guests won't be tired of the menu, and they will love the margaritas) AND/OR

Cafe San Miguel for just about anything. Order guacamole and corn tortillas (handmade, so they are slow getting to the table) even if you go for Sunday breakfast, which is divine.

Fit and Foodie?

Funny you should mention Commander's, where just 12 hours ago, I abandoned all hope of healthy for the apple flapjacks. Outstanding. OUTSTANDING. Yesterday, we found by complete accident a turkey muffaletta at French Market Cafe-- toasted sesame seed bun, olive salad, hot turkey, and just a touch of cheese. That was heaven. Also had a great "light" dish (that comes with a side of beurre blanc!) at Redfish --- grilled redfish with grilled shrimp and veggies. With an added side of broccoli, it was a very clean meal. I'm venturing out of the Quarter tomorrow -- must walk off flapjacks -- and will report back.

What are you serving for Thanksgiving dessert?

You simply must share the recipe for Cajun Bread Pudding. I'm heading to New Orleans tomorrow (no joke), and just the idea of this dessert has given me new inspiration!

Thanks for the tips! These all sound worth a try.

Seriously Folks, Any Good Pizza?

I would try Campania, but be very specific about what you want. Their anchovies and tuna are exceptional, though not everyone's taste.

Only.
No exceptions.

Favorite new sushi places in Dallas anyone?

You gotta' try Sushi Zushi. Don't be turned off by the delivery truck out front (which you may need sometime). The menu is voluminous, and the sushi chefs will make you anything. I took several rolls -both fish and veggie- and several grilled skewers to a potluck supper, and all my foodie friends RAVED about the quality.

Fancy Trendy Restaurant

How about 11 Madison Park? The building itself is gorgeous, the staff is excellent, the food is interesting and delicious, and the lighting is uberflattering.

I'll be spending about a week in New Orleans this month and will visit all my favorites (including Galatoire's at least twice just for the shrimp remoulade). What I'm about to ask may have you scratching your heads and wondering about my sanity, but here goes: Anyone know of a restaurant near the French Quarter with (gulp) healthy food? I don't want sprouts and avocado, just something to break up 7 days of butter and sauce and beignets.

Village dinner w/Dallas guests

Hi. I live in Dallas but spend at least a few days in New York every month for work. I recommend three spots that have not only great food but a good New York vibe:

1. H&H for the kind of bagels that were available in Dallas only at Gilbert's Deli (R.I.P.).
2. Arturo's Pizzeria.
3. Balthazar --- particularly for breakfast.

Enjoy!

Carla
