Why are restaurants in Dallas so expensive right now? In addition, the anxiety of the menu
In our beginnings Eat Drink D-FW episode, editor-in-chief Erin Booke and food writers Sarah Blaskovich and Claire Ballor talk about the week’s biggest restaurant news — from crazy menu prices to big Fort Worth moves — before diving into food trends. culinary scene this year. What’s inside ? Excessive and flashy restaurants (so very Dallas, but also kind of an enigma), and why we like simpler menus. What’s new ? You guess. (It rhymes with Bot Thicken.) Next, Sarah meets a Texas Rangers insider Evan Grant to Loro in East Dallas to explain why they always order way too much food.
The best sandwiches in North Texas. Plus, Alligator corn dogs at the ballpark?
Editor Erin Booke interviews a food writer Nick Rallo on one of our favorite foods: sandwiches. And no, that doesn’t mean hot dogs. It will be another episode. Nick discusses the elements of a good sandwich and where to find the best ones in North Texas. Then we go on a field trip to Globe Life Field in Arlington with food writer Sarah Blaskovich and Rangers journalist Evan Grant as they sample new foods at the Texas Rangers games, alligator corn dogs (chicken taste) to the vegan chicken salad sandwich (surprisingly, tastes like chicken too.)
Meet our foodies
In this special episode, food editor Erin Booke and food writers Sarah Blaskovich and Claire Ballor discuss their beats, why they got into food journalism, and their “foodie origin stories” (including at least one key kid who was familiar with a box of Vienna sausages).
