I'm always checking out new bars and restaurants, and my friends are always telling me to start a blog since I love to eat and drink! I decided to start the blog to highlight a few of my favorite places in Dallas as well as places I have never been. I'd like to show my support for my service industry friends and showcase what they do. I'm just a waiter who likes good food, good beers, good cocktails, and good specials! I'll try to keep all my posts short and sweet so you can move on to the next one. I feel like saying too much can ruin it. Let me know what you think!
I know. I know. It’s not in Dallas! I promise this won’t happen again, but I HAD to share this ridiculously large loaded baked potato that I had at Cellarman’s in Sherman (my hometown). It’s only one hour north, guys. Please don’t abandon me because my blog strayed away from Dallas. Please just look at the picture, and you’ll see why I strayed. It was stuffed with butter, sour cream, bacon, chives, red onion, mushrooms, jalapeños, cheddar, mozzarella, monterey jack, and chili! They have a lot of other things I’d like to talk about, but I’d like to stay loyal to Dallas. You can check out their menu through the link below.
The BBC is a new English pub in uptown at 2800 Routh St. one street over from the Gingerman. It’s a really cool place and is a lot bigger than I thought it was when I walked in. As I sat at the bar, I turned around and saw a stage in the corner. Live music, y’all! I love live music. It seems to start pretty late. After ordering my drink and appetizer, I decided to get up and walk around. They have two big patios with HD action and two bars! The back bar is just as big as the front bar and almost cooler (not cold, like … cool, yo.) The appetizer we got was ceviche. It was kinda fancy and a bit small but had great flavor. That’s the most important part! I had already had dinner somewhere else and was full, but I kept smelling the shepherd’s pie all around me and finally fell into it’s smell/spell. It was SO good! The lamb and sauce was perfect, and I loved the fancy piped potatoes on top. I hope they don’t get mad with me using the word “fancy” twice for their pub. I got too full and boxed the remaining half. Soon after that, the live music started. It was jazzy and grungy with a little reggae infused in. I’m pretty sure they did a Bob Marley song.
Anyways, I hope this place does well. It’s pretty cool, and all the staff seem very nice. I couldn’t find a website for it yet, but I’ll keep looking for you. The people who do Sherlock’s run this operation, I think, so I’m sure a website will be up soon.
Oh! I forgot to mention our awesome cucumber cilantro martini! There. I mentioned it.
