I'm just making a business decision; one that we did not take lightly."  Read more...

Now, 11 years later, he's doing something equally bold in a city that's known for its fervent adoration of brunch: He's killing it...  Read more

Love on a Budget: 8 Classy But Affordable Date-Night Dinners in Dallas

2017-09-13

A timeless Dallas classic: The Grape - The Grape has been a Dallas legend - and a first choice for date nights - for 45 years. The restaurant is still getting it right, with impeccable service and seasonally rotating menus. Still, as much as the menu changes with the harvest, at least one friend of mine is addicted to the mushroom soup and gets a $4 cup every time. The Sunday brunch is peerless without being pricey, especially if your date doesn’t mind burger grease running down your fingers. May we also recommend a special-occasion splurge on the monthly “Come As You Are” dinner, with three specially chosen courses and wine pairings for $54 per person?

Zagat names two DFW burgers as best in America.

2016-10-10

Among stalwarts like New York City’s Minetta Tavern and Chicago’s Kuma’s Corner, Zagat singled out Dallas’ The Grape and Dugg Burger as two of the 30 best burgers in the entire country. Of The Grape’s classic cheeseburger, Zagat writes: “Available only two days a week at Brian and Courtney Luscher's Lower Greenville American bistro, this longtime Big D favorite always wows diners (get it only during Sunday brunch and dinner on Sunday and Monday nights) and is totally worth scheduling, though, thanks to the divine combination of a belt-busting 10-oz. freshly ground beef patty, housemade peppered bacon, Vermont white cheddar, Nathan's horseradish half-sour pickles and Dijonnaise on a soft, toasty pain au lait bun.” Read more: http://www.star-telegram.com/living/food-drink/article106404782.html Zagat The 30 Best Burgers in America: https://www.zagat.com/b/the-30-best-burgers-in-america
