Ruining the Curve

Chow, Baby
Whew, Chow, Baby has finally cleared one of its Places to Eat sublists: the Dallas-wannabe West 7th development, where half a dozen restaurants have opened in the last half-dozen months within a two-block span. Every time you t...


Going Up the Country

Chow, Baby
It gives you one of those Twilight Zone feelings, driving through architecturally undistinguished Benbrook and then through a bunch of nothing to wind up at a pretty country farmhouse in the middle of nowhere — rockers on the...



Grumpole at the Bailey

Chow, Baby
According to the USDA, the food price index for “food away from home” (that is, dining at restaurants) increased 6.4 percent in 2008 and 0.5 percent in 2009; it’s projected to increase by about 2 percent for 2010 and anot...

Any Way You Slice It

Chow, Baby
One of Chow, Baby’s valiant attempts to impose order on the food universe is its gyros classification system. It’s pretty straightforward: Class A is slabs of lamb and/or beef that have been marinated in a secret family rec...


Authentic, with Additions

Chow, Baby
Chow, Baby weighed the evidence before it. On the one hand, it was in North Richland Hills, which is not the first place you think of for real … well, real anything. On the other hand, the restaurant sign overhead had “Auth...
