Kitchen 1924

If you judge a new restaurant by the dynamic energy, the sheer charisma, of its owner, then Kitchen 1924 is gonna be a hoppin joint. Owner Shawn Horne has racked up time at Star Canyon, Aquaknox, Abacus, Green Room, York Street, & Ferre, wears avant-garde glasses, and has an enunciating style so clear, he comes off as sharp as a tack. Kitchen 1924 is in the Lakewood space vacated by La Dolce Vita, and the food will be um "eclectic seasonal comfort food". No sign of a menu yet, but the chef is Edward Mendoza, who was at lola & nana. The remodel includes a room devoted to communal dining, but Horne knew enough to leave La Dolce Vita’s A+ pizza oven right where it was.

1924 Abrams, 214-821-1924. Opening early January 06

What a great time of year to hear about "eclectic seasonal comfort food". Just what I'm in the mood for.
And I loved the links, no strenuous reading to exhaust me on a Friday.

I was rading about this place last week (sorry, tg, don't remember where) and it sounds like a great addition to east Dallas.

And by the way, building on yesterday's 'Blake' Cola, Coke has new marketing slogan they will be rolling out at the Torino 2006 Winter Olympics.

"Welcome to the Coke side of life."

I think that the ultimate non sequitur would be to launch said on a snow covered mount...
