RESTAURANT OF THE WEEK INTRO: Writing reviews is a big thing that people should not take lightly. Nowadays in the age of social media, many new and current restaurants rely on word of mouth (aka the social buzz) on how well their openings will do or what their futures look like. It is so easy to go online and complain about one little thing and you never realize how impactful your words can be. Thus, it is my belief that it is unfair to write a bad review unless you’ve given the place a second try and had the same experience.
My Goal: A few of my passions in life are writing, eating, and discovering new restaurants, places, and types of food. What better way to share this passion than to write reviews and share some of my favorite places in my hometown of Dallas. The one thing I have always looked for when reading reviews is the highlights. While I do love reading the details of how the food was made and the ingredients carefully selected, sometimes I just want to know the pros/cons, time details, parking, and what to order and what to not order. Thus, that is how I’m structuring my Dallas Restaurant of the Week reviews – short, concise, and sweet. All of my reviews will follow the same format and will be periodically updated.
Let’s dive in and enjoy, shall we?
