As the prospect of another week rears its head, we at Entree Dallas began to let our imaginations wander – an all-too-frequent habit - and started daydreaming of what foodstuffs and viddles might help us make the journey to Friday. We figured a few destinations might help provide a little culinary light to the Monday gloom.
A make-your-own bloody mary bar might be the primary draw for some restaurants’ brunches, but at Jonathon’s in Oak Cliff, it’s merely the cherry on top of a Sunday brunch that provides everything from the simple and light (fruit plates and steel-cut oatmeal) to imaginative and enticing (Peanut Butter Jelly Time Waffle, with plenty in between. The chicken and waffles is a welcome indulgence on a late Saturday or Sunday morning, while the bacon and roasted chiles in the Huevos Juanitas can perk up a sagging spirit or even an aching head.
The sandwiches at Gio’s NY Deli are serious affairs, and with price tags that average around $12 for each, the cost is no insignificant matter, either. However, the old adage rings true at this shop on the Southwest corner of635 and Preston – you do indeed get what you pay for. Huge amounts of meats and fillings stuff the sandwiches to the brim, and with a side or two, the club sandwich can be easily split between two for lunch.
Matt’s didn’t disappear – they’ve got other locations – but everything is indeed a little more right with the world now that they’re back in Lakewood. We’ll of course be getting a Bob Armstrong (ground chuck, chile con
queso, guacamole & sour cream) and a margarita, then just let the rest of dinner come to us as it may.
