Red Fork at the Fork in the Road

Hip, happening Red Fork has lost its opening chefs.  Jeff Harris, formerly of Craft, and Matt Balke, from York Street, bailed out last week over disagreements with ownership.  Is the hot and hailed “Gastro-Pub” now just “Pub Grub”?  Jim White took a look recently.  Let us know what you think if you go to Red Fork.

Funny, you don’t look a day over 99!

Happy 100th birthday to White Rock Lake.

Thanks to Brian C. Luscher and all the great chefs who put together one fantastic “Chef’s Picnic” to help celebrate White Rock Lake’s 100th birthday.  The big party culminated with tons of activities on Sunday June 26th.  None more savory than the picnic held at The Bath House Cultural Center.  It was a picnic in June so one would expect heat.  How hot was it, you ask?  Well, let’s just it could have been named the “Hotternhell Picnic” and it wouldn’t have been an understatement.  Oh, I know you can’t jump in the water for fear you’ll scrape your shin, or contract some dreadful bacterial condition, but oh I wanted to splash in the water anyway.  Well, thank goodness there was shade, and plenty of cool beverages.  The food was amazing and very local!  Thanks to Brian C. Luscher of The Grape, Janice Provost from Parigi, Marc Cassel from Peavy Road (coming soon), Graham Dodds from Bolsa, Jeff Harris of Redfork, Nathan Tate and Randall Copeland from Restaurant AvaDiane and Justin Fourton from Pecan Lodge, and personal chef Holly Dorethy.  The tickets benefited the American Red Cross and White Rock Lake.  See some photo highlights here.  Hope you made it out this weekend.  It’s a long time until the bi-Centennial!  Cheers! Or, I guess I should say, splash!
