Laid back and larruping

Dine! Michael’s Cuisine

Chef Michael Thomson and Jim White

Chef Michael Thomson and Jim White

Michael Thomson still packs ’em in at his Cultural District restaurant years after a lot of restaurants vanish.  His upscale comfort food, or “contemporary ranch cuisine”, in a laid back setting, pleases diners for lunch, dinner, or evenings on the patio.  Michael has helped many a young chef learn the ropes through the years.  That’s why his protégées affectionately refer to him as the “Godfather of Fort Worth chefs”.  See Michael in action in our latest CBS video for “DINE! with Jim White”, and be sure to stop by sometime if you haven’t been.  Heads up:  TCU Horn Frogs spoken here.   Show up bedecked in purple and you might even get a better table! Regardless, you’re sure to find good ol’ fashioned Texas hospitality.

Scattershooting while wondering what happened to my dining notes

(with a tip of the hat to the great Blackie Sherrod)

Save the Date September 16th.  Or, we could say “SAVOR” the date for our next “Dinner Club with Jim White” special event coming up Thursday September 16th.  As they say in radio, “stay tuned for more details” coming soon!

KRLD Restaurant Week is continuing through September 5th for many of the great participating restaurants.  See the participating restaurants at krld.com.  Help us hit the mark of 100,000 meals served this year to raise $700,000 to benefit the North Texas Food Bank and the Lena Pope Home.

People have asked us the date of Savor Dallas 2011.  Glad to report it will be March 18th and 19th.  Once again, we’ll be celebrating wine, food, spirits and the arts.  We will be returning to the beautiful Dallas Arts District, and the spectacular “International Grand Tasting” will once again be staged in the Sheraton Dallas Hotel.  There are some big surprises planned for our 7th Annual event.  Tickets go on sale October 1st.  See highlights and video from Texas’ largest premium wine and food festival at www.SavorDallas.com.

Best meal deal in town right now is probably the resurrected “Green Room” in Deep Ellum.  How could you beat “Feed Me” from Executive Chef Joel Harloff and BYOB?  Their liquor license is not in place yet, so for the time being, you can bring in wines you like and enjoy the cool scene, the cuisine, and a real value on your wine pairing.  Is this a great country or what?

Taste of the NFL

North Texas Dinner Series

The Taste of the NFL has an appetizing game plan for North Texas and it kicks off long before the Super Bowl ever pulls into town. With the big game coming to Dallas, North Texas chefs have teamed up to create the Taste of the NFL Dinner Series. This series of dinners will coincide with the beginning of the 2010 NFL season and run through mid-November. Proceeds from these dinners benefit the North Texas Food Bank and the Tarrant Area Food Bank.  Read on for the complete schedule.
