Bite by Eddy T recently opened in the former
Cyclone Anaya Kin Kin Urban Thai space on Oak Lawn. Chef Eddy Thretipthuangsin (affectionately known as Eddy T … because, who can say that name?!), brought his concept over from Fort Worth in December offering American cuisine with an Asian influence. The restaurant will offer lunch and dinner, an extensive wine list, teas, and a full bar complete with a menu of rather interesting cocktails.
I was intrigued by the cocktails which use some local spirits and infusions made in-house. My favorite, which is also my Fort Worth contributor, Amanda’s favorite drink at Bite, was the smoked bourbon, sweet tea, limoncello, and St. Germain business. When delivered, the mason jar is capped to keep the smoke chambered. Hot damn. (Literally and metaphorically.)
Dinner was fantastic and my favorite was the Parmesan Soufflé. I was so pissed that I hadn’t ordered that myself and had to settle for just two bites of it. The Braised Short Rib (not pictured, also not ordered by me) will be what I return to eat. Dessert was a different story … it was delicious–every.damn.thing was delicious.
The food and drink satisfied all of us at the media event, which was capped off beautifully by their homemade lollipops. The staff was incredibly friendly, the restaurant lovely (if a bit dark… always tough to get decent pictures of the food!), and the atmosphere charged.
Check out Eddy’s newest restaurant in Dallas soon … and make sure to have a smokey drink and lollipop for me!
