Two Cranes Bistro and Bar’s Cubano sandwich, with carnitas, honey ham, salami and Swiss cheese, gets some heat from red chile and spicy mustard. (Richard S. Dargan/For The Journal) Eating out can bring the “angel on one shoulder, devil on the other” predicament to life.

The angel tells you to eat your vegetables, asks why you’d order a $12 glass of wine when you can just have water; the devil says life is short, try the beer flight, say yes to dessert. Two Cranes Bistro and Bar, on the west end of the Sawmill District, is like a physical manifestation of this conundrum. Two Cranes’ duality reflects an ambitious agenda. The food menu has decent variety, with most items falling in the $9-$15 range. The spinach berry salad combines fruit and nuts for a sweet, crunchy mix at Two Cranes Bistro and Bar. A couple of salads are available, including a brightly colored spinach and berry version ($10) that combines fruit and nuts atop a bed of greens. ADVERTISEMENTSkip. Why Daniel Humm and Will Guidara’s Eleven Madison Park Split Is Such a Big Deal.

InIn the summer of 2009, the stage was set for a complete disruption of the New York fine dining hierarchy. Over the previous decade, many of the French and Italian legends that had defined New York’s fine dining scene — establishments like Lutece, La Cote Basque, and La Caravelle — had closed their doors. While the city still had a handful of extravagant dining rooms where Manhattan’s wealthy gourmands could drop their cash, many — Per Se, Jean Georges, and the like — reached their creative peaks years prior. Still reeling from the recession, restaurants of all stripes were offering budget-friendly deals and comfort food specials to appeal to diners feeling the pinch. With the city slouching through an economic funk, it seemed like an odd time to spend money on a splashy dining experience for anyone but the wealthiest New Yorkers.

But that August, Frank Bruni revisited a restaurant that had slowly, steadily upped its game over the last decade. Wurstkuchl (Sausage Kitchen) – Regensburg, Germany. Waveasianbistro. The Best Old-School and Classic Restaurants in America. Every city has its classic restaurants, those which have stood the test of time over the years. These destinations tend to have a loyal customer fan-base, the flexibility to withstand changing times, and naturally, food worth coming back for.

These maps of classic restaurants across Eater Cities feature places ranging from upscale steakhouses to no-nonsense takeout spots. This lineup includes everything from La Grenouille in New York City, the opulent French restaurant that serves frog legs and caviar, to the Loveless Cafe in Nashville, a burger joint along Highway 100 that’s famous for its buttermilk biscuits.

Each of these dining establishments holds a special place in its city’s history and culture, allowing its success to persist as the decades go by. A trip to New Orleans isn’t complete without a fried shrimp po’ boy from the nearly century-old Domilise’s, just as Philadelphia wouldn’t be the same without Reading Terminal Market, a culinary icon since 1892. Louis’ Lunch (New Haven, Connecticut) from 50 Restaurants That Are Actually Worth Waiting in Line For. S&D Oyster Company | Menu. Listening Bars in Tokyo, LA, and NY Have Interior Design Worth Stealing. A taste of tradition: Molino de Flores offers classic Mexican dishes. Huaraches consist of a sandal-shaped corn tortilla with red chile sauce and chunks of marinated flank steak under a pile of shredded lettuce. (Richard S. Dargan/For The Journal) Even in New Mexico, it’s hard to escape Americanized Mexican food. Mexican restaurants here often use ingredients such as beef, cheddar cheese and wheat flour not typically found in the cuisine of our neighbors to the south.

Molino de Flores, a new restaurant on Central near Tramway NE, takes Mexican food back to its roots. Molino de Flores – “windmill of flowers” in Spanish – opened last month amid the stretch of motels and RV parks on East Central between Juan Tabo and Tramway. The host, efficient if not ebullient, took our order and served the food while a couple of guys manned the hot top in the back. Things began promisingly, with a complimentary bowl of freshly made tortilla chips, light, crunchy and puffed up, most likely from letting the tortillas dry out before frying them.

Riebeek Cellars Chenin Blanc - Perfectly Quaffable • Reverse Wine Snob® Town Hearth. Home - Sassetta. The Eater Guide to the Southwest. Driving through the rugged expanse of America’s Southwest, you can’t deny that there’s a cinematic feel to the place: the painted deserts, grand canyons, rocky spires, and dramatic peaks.

The American Indians who’ve called this region home for millennia consider the land sacred. The waves of colonizers who followed, from the Spanish to turquoise-hunting tourists, have all believed in the power of the land in their own ways; spiritual seekers of the ’60s talked about “energy vortexes” throughout the region, and today there’s no shortage of crystal-draped shops selling wares to help you channel them properly. The point is, the area we call the Southwest — which, for our purposes, includes New Mexico, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and Nevada — is imbued with a sort of energizing, head-clearing force that you won’t find anywhere else. That includes the food: Blankets of green and red chile sauce are as much a part of the terrain here as the Utah arches and Carlsbad Caverns. The Gooey, Cheesy History of the Kentucky Hot Brown. “It’s on a lot of people’s bucket lists,” says Mark Salmon of his employer, the Brown Hotel in downtown Louisville, Kentucky.

The historic hotel is a destination not necessarily because of its rooms or amenities; rather, thousands of people from all over the country come every year to try the hot brown, a sandwich that’s on par with the Derby and bourbon as one of Kentucky’s cultural calling cards. Invented at the hotel nearly 100 years ago, the decadent open-faced sandwich is a close cousin of both Welsh rarebit and the croque-monsieur, made with hand-carved turkey, bacon, tomato, Texas toast, and Mornay sauce. The bread — crusts removed for aesthetics and a more even texture — is placed in a broiling dish and topped with turkey, halved Roma tomatoes, and Mornay sauce (which is simply bechamel with the addition of cheese); strips of bacon are laid on top to form an X, and the whole dish is placed under the broiler.

According to Albert W.A. The 10 Best San Francisco Restaurants That Opened in 2018. The Best Bad Restaurant Reviews of 2018. The year 2018 gave us all plenty to complain about, and it was no different for restaurant criticism. Of course, there were those restaurants that were predictably baffling to critics (see Salt Bae’s NYC branch of Nusr-Et, Drake’s Pick 6ix in Toronto, or the reincarnation of the Playboy Club in New York City), but some of the most scathing restaurant reviews were inspired not by easy targets, but in reaction to restaurants that promised to deliver something good — they had potential! This year, Major Food Group opened a dud, David Chang disappointed LA’s most legendary critic, and more than one international import fell far short of critics’ expectations. Per annual Eater tradition, here’s a look at the best of what restaurant critics had to say about the worst dining experiences.

Bionda | Regional Italian Cuisine. You Want to Eat The Patty Melt at Overeasy. When my colleague informed me earlier this month that The Parlor on Commerce had closed, I felt genuinely sad. Not because it was a historic landmark that had been there for ages, or even because it was in my rotation of frequently visited watering-holes, or even even because I had become chummy with the bartenders. (Although, I’m sure if I had stopped in more often, that would have been the case—those dudes were nice.)

My grief stemmed from the loss of one specific menu item: the patty melt. A pink-in-the-middle ground beef patty topped with sticky caramelized onions and gooey American cheese was sandwiched between two slices of butter-soaked Village Baking Co. sourdough. Yeah, sure, it’s not traditional. Rye bread and Swiss cheese were nowhere to be found. Instead of lamenting the loss, I took action. Some of my findings were straightforward and so-so. I was losing hope until, one dreary afternoon during my lunch break, I found it; the apex of Dallas patty melts. Melt. The 10 Best Steakhouses in Dallas.

Dallas Steakhouse | Prime Steaks | The Original Bob's Steak & Chop. Jessica Smith General Manager “We would love to have you come in and see why we are so special.” Every night at Bob’s is a different experience and it can be very exciting, especially when a celebrity or sports figure walks through the door. I started out as an owner learning the business and building a passion for service and hospitality. I was trained in every position in the restaurant before taking on the GM position and since then, it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. We have a very close-knit team here at Bob’s. The 20 Best Seafood Dives of all Time, Ranked! - Coastal Living.

Magokoro Japanese Rest. Take a Tour of Dallas' Best Neighborhood Restaurants. The best neighborhood restaurants are the places you return to again and again. The diner you head to on a Tuesday evening when you don’t want to cook, or the bar down the block where you walk on a Friday night to have a beer and a burger with friends. They are the breakfast places where the waitresses know your name and bring you coffee with extra cream, along with the gooiest cinnamon roll in town, without having to ask. They may not be the fanciest or the trendiest, but they represent where we come from and make us feel at home. Which makes us happy.

Restaurant Review: Dolce Riviera - D Magazine. The first time I went to Dolce Riviera, it was almost 9:30 p.m. by the time I wandered into the courtyard of moonlit palms. In search of the Harwood International group’s newest restaurant, I had ambled through the known Harwood world—past the music and lights glittering at Mercat Bistro; past Saint Ann, with its samurai armor collection, a quiet reminder that developer Gabriel Barbier-Mueller is as much art collector as real estate baron; and under the bridge where Magnolias Sous Le Pont nestles, with the hidden Marie Gabrielle set in a green enclave above.

Two blocks farther, under the glowing emblem of Frost Tower, Dolce Riviera appeared, the mirage of a Mediterranean villa set amidst terra cotta amphora. The door was swept open by a gray-suited host, who informed me the kitchen had closed for the night and then, almost in the same breath, said he would see what could be done. The food is of coastal Italy: the agrodolce tradition from Sicily, with lots of fish. Fearing's Continues to Buck Against Tradition - D Magazine. You know certain things will be true when you go to Dean Fearing’s namesake. There will be long, exuberant menu descriptions and indulgent fantasy desserts, like banana pudding with a bananas Foster drizzle and warm beignets. And there will be lavish cuts of meat. A subtle sweetness works beautifully for the buffalo tenderloin, swathed in maple syrup overnight and bearing the deep imprint of black pepper.

The kitchen knows how to handle its proteins. Grayson Social Waves the Modern Southern Flag - D Magazine. Water Grill Brings West Coast Flavor to Dallas. Dallas scarcely knows seafood outside the trappings of a steakhouse. On the stretch of McKinney Avenue that is our de facto steakhouse-seafood row, we are fluent in two models. One, a world of back-lit marble and bespoke cocktails—jazzy, splashy, chic. The other: antlered moose and somber portraits of presidents. What we have not had yet is the likes of Water Grill, the grand dame of seafood in Los Angeles. Its new outpost on McKinney, its first branch outside of Southern California, brings with it the mystique of West Coast seafood. It is more like an oyster bar with the old-world warmth of a chowder house—a place to have a bowl of unimpeachable clam chowder and a martini, to enjoy a Lillet Blanc and a platter of chilled shellfish.

One evening, you might tuck yourself into the raw bar, for all the world like a New Orleans oyster bar, oyster shells worked into the black granite of the counter. And this could almost be enough. Odd, then, the flops. Write to eve.hillagnus@dmagazine.com. Where to Eat in New Orleans | Tasting Table. "Restaurants were some of the first responders after the storm," says Louisiana native Dudley Passman, director of food service for longtime New Orleans company Zatarain's. That storm, of course, is Hurricane Katrina, and more than 11 years after it devastated an entire community, the city's food scene is flourishing like never before. Where only 800 restaurants existed in 2005, now there are 1,550. Although more doesn't always mean better, in the Big Easy, more is, well, more. As chef Alon Shaya, who was handing out red beans and rice immediately after Katrina, puts it, "We sunk so low, we had nowhere to go but up.

" Photo: Courtesy of Commander's Palace "The city is now filled with restaurants representing old and new New Orleans culture," says Emeril Lagasse, who never left the Big Easy after moving there in 1982 to replace chef Paul Prudhomme at Commander's Palace.
