Noteworthy Culinary News Items

This is just a quickie on two items of note in the world of Dallas dining today:

1.  Doughmonkey, Snyder Plaza's answer to Heaven on Earth, is closing its doors for good.  

I read this yesterday afternoon on the Guidelive Eats blog not minutes after having a conversation with a friend about the next time we'd be heading over that way for some of Rhonda's amazing chocolate chip cookies and jewel-like gems of handcrafted artisan chocolate.  I could go on and on about the proliferation of status-shops pushing $5 boulders in cupcake wrappers and wonder aloud about why a place like Doughmonkey can't seem to stay afloat.  But I won't.

2.  Check out the awesome review of the Landmark Restaurant in the Guide today!

I had the unique pleasure of dining at the Landmark recently with a dear friend on a 4-course menu prepared by Chef Jeff himself.  I can attest to the review's accuracy - the food was awesome, and Chef Jeff is definitely a rising star.  Really nice guy, too.  Big Congrats!

I know. I was so sad about Doughmonkey.
