FOODIE LOVE

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.

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

Awesome bar

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)

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.

Pros: Amazing food exactally how we liked it, with the best company in the world 

Cons: dishes
