There's no question that the brunch scene in Dallas is highly competitive. Restaurants all over the city work towards creating the next newest, hottest brunch experience. Some succeed, some fail. But we are lucky that we have more successes than failures here. It's always especially nice when we discover a spot that becomes a new favorite. Such is the case with Pink Magnolia. Located in one of my favorite areas of the city, th...

Fun Fact: My zodiac sign is Cancer. That means that I'm somewhat emotional, will fight for my friends, and sometimes goes into my shell. So I have a soft spot for things that give me comfort. Soft, warm blankets. Freshly laundered bedsheets. Hugs from my favorite people. And places that make me feel like I'm home. So it makes me extra excited when I discover something that makes me feel at ease. And bonus points when I can fin...

Although I live in Dallas, I was born and raised in the east coast. New Jersey, if you want to be specific. My family is actually from the Caribbean and I was the first in my family to be born in the US. Even though I've been in Dallas for a significant amount of time, I am still an East Coast chick to my heart. Anytime I visit that side of the United States, I'm reminded of why I love the East. The vibe, the sights, the peopl...

South Beach soul food outpost, Pink Teacup Villa, is the backdrop for reality tv show, Hustle & Soul. Lunch and dinner is served but the standout here is their weekend brunch. Featuring a buffet and unlimited mimosas, Pink Teacup Villa is the place where you’ll get a party on the side of your meal.

We were greeted by a nice hostess, dressed in the waitstaff's uniform of fishnet stockings and a leotard, that pretty much let us c...

Have you ever driven by an establishment and was intrigued about the menu, just on the basis of the look of the building alone? That's what drove me to try Matchbox. It's quite a sight to see: a massive corner restaurant building with a huge wrap around patio, fire pits, and large windows. 

Entering the establishment, I really got to take in it's huge space. If you ever needed a spot for a large group, this place surely could a...

As soon as I saw the name of this week’s reviewed restaurant, it was like a siren song. I do not and cannot deny that tacos and wine are two of my favorite things. And when greatness comes together, you’ve got to take notice! As we arrived to the quaint, converted traditional craftsman home in the Bishop Arts District of Dallas, I can’t think of anything more welcoming than a sign that says “Come in…We have wine”.

Washington D.C.  Probably one of the first places that come to mind when I think of places that go hard on brunch, like we do in Dallas. But I have to give it to them--D.C. offers a much wider selection that I've experienced in the Big D. So I was totally excited to take time to explore this great city and try a variety of spots. Along the next few weeks, I'll share all of the places that I got to explore. But for now, it's st...

Have you guys ever been to Canada? I have. It's pretty dope. Yup, it's as cold (temperature wise) as you think it would be. And the people are as friendly as you've heard. And the food is pretty tasty. So it's basically an awesome place to visit. If you are in Dallas, you are in luck. We have a place that gives you just a bit of that Canada feeling right in the Lone Star State.

Maple Leaf Diner brings a bit of that Canadian fee...

Hey there, my Lusters! It's 2019 and we are excited to continue to bring you some awesome (and not-so-awesome) spots for your brunching adventures! Let's kick off this new year with a review of a visit to a fun spot in Austin, TX: Jacoby's Restaurant & Mercantile.

If you haven't been to Austin, know this: Austin is an eclectic city. You can find almost any type of cuisine, any type of music, any type of art form there. The city...

I don't know about you but I tend to go on adventures around the city. I don't mind driving. Long distances or short, as long as I have a vehicle, gas, and time, I'm down to hit the road. These adventures often lead to some amazing discoveries that I would have never come across before. That's exactly the case with PIE 3.14 EVERYDAY EATERY. I was out exploring one day, was hungry, and discovered this awesome, nearly hidden res...
