Alessio's

Dallas old-timers might remember an ital place called Alessio’s, popular w/ old-farty HP types; can offer no personal testimony, but it was open 16 yrs so that’s sumfin. Owner Alessio Franceschetti has since worked at a coupla other places but now has a new Alessio’s, this time in East Dallas, up the st from Jimmy’s Food Store. (All that ‘hood needs is one more buzzy enterprise and it’ll be an official hot-spot. Perhaps you've heard that Tom Spicer, the boutique produce supplier to 5-star joints such as York St., plans to open a produce market, at 1410 Fitzhugh, 2 doors down from Jimmy's. Assuming he can get the bldg in shape. Not to mention financing.) Ever eat at the Vietnamese restaurant Pho Kim? That’s where Alessio’s is.

4801 Bryan St. 214-824-2200

My Viet experience in that neighborhood is limited to Mai's, but I think it "Pho Kin" GREAT that Jimmy's has returned and that Alessio's is making a run at it.

Between the Asians, Mexicans and Italians at that intersection, it may just be Dallas' most diverse crossroads.

Frist~!

Thanks... another one for good ol' East Dallas! I have heard good things about this place already. Need to get there soon.

And, I love how you manage to avoid using GuideLive links for stuff in Dallas, TG. Poor old DMN just can't get no respect... ;-)

BK's Blog sees right thru my nefarious efforts to make NYCE a non-DMN kind of place. I did however make an exception for the Loon writeup done by esteemed critic waltrina stovall ...

and btw, i added a tiny news update to the blog item ...

(my word verification is "mycax" which my-cat would perhaps like, if only he could read)

Between The Loon and Louies, one never has to go beyond Loop 12 for a good, stiff drink and great pizza!

I guess we're all supposed to know who Tom Spicers is. Never heard of the guy

i'm late on commenting on this, but alessio did cook at the loon after he closed his highland park restaurant -- and the pizzas were excellent, as was most of the other food. haven't heard anything about herb guy tom spicer in some years, nor his sister susan she was at one time a well-known new orleans chef.
