Dinner Roll: Restaurant Round-Up

Posted June 1, 2009 by eric.griffey in Blotch

For those of you who missed the first Dinner Roll post, I’ll briefly remind you of the criteria. I’m just trying to shed a little light on local restaurants that are having great deals, special menu items, or just trying something new. I’m trying to keep it mostly mom and pop-y, but I won’t exclude a great deal just because it’s a corporation that’s doling it out. If you know of a great restaurant that meets the above criteria, hit me up at eric.griffey@fwweekly.com.

A few items have made their way into my grubby little paws so far this week, in no particular order:

Blue Mesa (1600 S. University Dr. FW 76107 phone: 817-332-6372): is doing tacos-for-a-cause. One dollar from every taco sold goes to a local charity. The chef’s taco of the month for June is corn crusted Thai grouper {tacos} with macadamia nut pico (dinner $10.50, lunch $9.50)

Pop’s Safari (2929 Morton Street FW 76107 phone: 817-877-0916) is offering a buy-one-get-one-free entrée deal on June 12 and 13. And on Mondays and Wednesdays, a different kind of buy one/get one: if you buy a burger, you get one free beer.

Lambert’s (2731 White Settlement Road FW 76107 phone: 817-882-1161) is doing a six-course beer dinner on Tuesday June 9. The “Not Your Average Six Pack” (groan – marketing people shouldn’t name things) dinner of beer-braised chicken will be paired with beers from the Fort’s own Rhar brewery. Chef Lou Lambert will also be teaching a course on preparing picnic food at Central Market (4651 W. Freeway FW 76107 phone 377-9307) on July 14.

Hoffbrau Steaks (1712 S. University Drive FW 76107 phone 817-870-1952, and locations in Arlington and Hurst) is collecting toothbrushes, toothpaste (3oz or less), AA and AAA batteries to send to our overseas troops. If you bring in 3 items during the month of June, you get $5 off with a purchase of two entrees.

In conjunction with the Van Cliburn competition, two area restaurants (that I’m aware of) are offering special menus. The Vault (525 Taylor Street FW 76102 phone: 348-9830) and Bistro Louise (2900 S. Hulen Street FW 76109 phone 817-922-9244) are offering a special $35 fixed menu deal. (Full disclosure: I occasionally work at Bistro Louise)
