Dallas City Market

After the usual round of delayed openings that seem to go with ambitious new ventures, Dallas City Market, the food-to-go deal from eatzi’s/sipango vet Joe Goetze and partner Tiffany Darley, is doing business, sorta, on the SW corner of lovers and the tollway. It has the following: a deli case filled with prepared foods (which, oddly, the staff seems unable to describe over the phone – you’ll need to actually GO IN to find out that it's much like the eatzi's deli with items such as grilled tuna with sesame vinaigrette, like that’s so hard to describe), plus wine, cheese, Sbux, salad station, you’ve seen those before, and right on to all of that. But answer me this: what other urban market has “Danish-style shopping carts.”

5600 W. Lovers Lane, 214-350-TOGO (8646)

i haven't actually seen it but from what i understand, it's sort of curved and has a little area on top of the cart where you can spoon in some cherry filling

ha,ha, you are so funny, but what if you prefer a prune danish?

my erstwhile daughter says they are old hat, but i am troubled by some carts i saw in oklahoma, which i think of as the avant garde state. they have a little child's size car on front, which is where you park the kid. he/she can amuse self "driving" while you shop. seems safer and would keep the kid from trying to grab cookies and so forth, but since you actually steer the cart, is the kid going to grow up ignorant about what happens when you turn a wheel?

bet they have these carts in progressive plano, though i haven't seen them in dallas

Yeah, they only take up 3/4 of the aisle. But we must keep the little darlings amused. I remember using the back of my hand for that purpose.
