Proclamations, Pyles and “The Prisoner”

Current Events

The Sauce was captivated with Greater Dallas Restaurant Association President (and i Fratelli Brother) David Cole as he delivered his “2012 State of the Association” address.   Dallas Mayor Rawlings followed with his vision of making Dallas “The Best Customer Service City in the Nation.”

Food Glorious Food

The Sauce celebrated to-the-max at Samar by Stephan Pyles.  Wow!  Casual, urban, with small plates for sharing.  Start with the spicy, kicky Chaitini.  The menu is inspired by Spain, India, and the Eastern Mediterranean, but TS fell in love with peasant food… Potatoes and Chorizo with fried egg… it was the addition of foie gras that made it fit for a king.  Try the Short Ribs in Ginger-Garam Masala with Saffron Rice matched with spinach-goat cheese naan.

TS and i Fratelli are family,  so enjoying a meze of tapas “family style” is how we roll.

In Vino Veritas!

“The Prisoner” was paroled and “released” into the custody of guests enjoying the Thursday Weekly wine tasting event last week at i Fratelli Ristorante & Wine Bar.  It was an adoring crowd.  Orin Swift Cellars scored with this blend of Zin, Cab, Syrah, Petit Syrah, and Charbono (you say Charbono…I say Bonarda).  Soooo good with the grilled lamb chop.  MacArthur HS class of ‘79 and ’81 grads gathered and swapped stories.  We invite all Old School pals to do the same.

Musica, Musica, Musica

While searching for new i Fratelli Pizza locations, TS has developed an in-car-addiction to the SweetJack song.  TS and i Fratelli are known to love the canine and would love to host this clever puppy on any Wednesday in April when we start our Spring version of Smooch Your Pooch.
