Tryst

1. no fun links 2. from a press release & 3. not breaking-news: hat trick! So here it is. Tryst is a new restaurant-lounge on the South Side above Nellie's Sports Bar (which Tryst owner Brittney O'Daniel is also opening, ambitious wench that she is) in the same bldg as Gilley's, by Poor David's Pub and the South Side loft bldg and Amuse (Doug Brown's new place). So buzz-buzz to all that. Tryst has a big ol' patio & VIP lounge, but the newsy part is that it's where chef Todd Erickson turned up after his abrupt exit from Hector's on Henderson. The menu has, how do you say, whimsy: "beaten up chicken", lamb chop "lollipops", beef on a stick w/ 3 sauces: pomegranate-horseradish, ginger-peanut, & Tryst bbq.

1385 South Lamar, no fone yet, opening late Feb

No fun links? I think your "hat trick" link is fun. And the idea of lofts being "The Ofiicial Community of the Dallas Mavericks" is hysterical.

I hope Hector's continues to turn out great food after Erickson's departure.

P.S. Just looked at the menu. What the hell is "Angel Dusted Shrimp"? And are "mash potatoes" different from "mashed potatoes"?

At least it's not "mashers" which are on the menu at Abacus (or it is Jaspers). And don't forget "smashed", everybody likes to use that term. There's such a thing as too cute!

They got any crack-crusted steaks? Or how about some mussels in a nice PCP broth

Crab Fest in San Francisco...

Reminds me of when I had other priorities in the '60s, and headed out there for the Summer of Love. Took me six months to get rid of the little buggers!

Cheney, shouldn't you be trying to suck up to the Mrs. now that the revelations are coming out that you were caught with a mistress when you shot that pal of yours? Or wait, you were three sheets to the wind, right? I hope you sent Lynne a Valentine's card!

Okay, folks. Now I've gone on Fox News and accepted responsibility for shooting the asshole. How about if we just let sleeping dogs lie now, OK? Because anyone who questions my commitment to this country and my wife and family is a traitor. Got it? And don't forget ... I know where you live!

I totally agree, what a wench...cause thats a great descriptive choice of words...wait hold on a wench is a waitress/servant from medieval times or so isn't it.... so shes an owner/wench...hmmm... now what i can't figure out is why the website menu is different what you blogged about...i checked the website...no lollipops there...slackers...tryst = slackers and wenches. Chef Todd Erickson...who does he think he is, i mean granted D magazine did name him the number 1 young chef in dallas but what do they know anyways...i mean to leave hectors after he created it to be with a wench...i think tryst actually = slackers, wenches and run away chefs
