Yeah yeah yeah, what else is new right? I haven’t cooked a meal in the apartment yet. Mostly out of fear of dirtying something.
Crooked Tree Coffeehouse
Awesome little vegan/vegetarian cafe on Routh St. close to McKinney.
Tucked away in a house. Very cool- live music on Fridays and Saturdays.
There was a great band there two weekends ago, the lead singer did a phenomenal acoustic set.
seriously check them out- http://www.myspace.com/dovetail
Pros: Very chill, nice & intelligent crowd, great hummus
Cons: hard to find, coffee can sometimes be hit or miss, hard to find a seat and an outlet for the Mac on the weekends
Steel Restaurant and Lounge
On Oak Lawn at Hall and Welbourn you will see the valets jumping into Bentleys and Maseratis outside this swanky Indochine spot
Perfect place for a party, they have a private room lined with wine bottles. Very fun for a girls night out.
If you are headed there with a few friends or on a date, ask for a tall table in the back by the bar.
..and the house champagne is brillant.
Start with an order of Edamame- steaming hot, perfectly salted.
Apparently the Calamari is world class (bright flash, sorry)
The Vegetarian Sushi Rolls
Pros: fun atmosphere, consistently amazing food, attentive wait staff
Cons: lameish dessert, sometimes chilly
Upscale, pacific influence chophouse. Consistently ranked as one of the best restaurants in Texas.
Located on N. Henderson
The most delicious thing on the menu for vegetarians is the Tempura Green Beans and the sweet mashed potatoes
Pros: hot restaurant, gorgeous people, great place to eat before going out
Also they have a huge jar of salt water taffy as an after dinner treat. yum.
Cons: no reservations= crappy seats.
Hard Eight BBQ
i also checked out a BBQ joint in Stephenville at the intersection of highway 281 south and highway 67
Mesquite smoked texas style bbq– it smelled super authentic
and it had the most AMAZING pepper BBQ sauce. ever.
Pros: landmark BBQ joint, huge outdoor pits make for a cool feel, free beans
Cons: not vegetarian friendly.
Alex and I were feeling like making dinner a couple weekends ago
She cooked a gorgeous brisket.
I made a big pot of Speghetti Primavera with zucchini, red and green peppers, tomatoes, squash, a little olive oil, and salt. Delicious.
and we toasted our efforts with dixie cups of champagne and wished our moms had been there..
Pros: Amazing food exactally how we liked it, with the best company in the world
I hope everyone is salivating now. I am.
