If You Find Yourself In Dallas
As wonderful as Scottsdale is, everyone has to travel sometime. Whether you are traveling for fun or business, if you find yourself in the Dallas area you need to look no further than the Frisco Star for some fine dining.
Dallas Cowboys and the Frisco Star
The Star in Frisco is the Dallas Cowboy’s World Headquarters and is home to several bars and restaurants. Da Mario’s is one of those restaurants and it is a place that everyone should experience. I was fortunate enough to actually get a tour of the kitchen by the chef Luigi Iannuario.
It is hard to say what greets you first: is it the amazing aromas coming from the kitchen or is it their fabulous hosts with mega-watt smiles? Regardless, you will feel like home when you walk into this fabulous eatery.
Signature Cocktails Abound
Their mixologists were hard at work coming up with fabulous cocktails. Drinks with names like Cardinal, Gato Amargo
Da Mario’s Awesome Kitchen
Chef Luigi gave me a quick tour before the kitchen was busy. They make everything here! Every area smelled better than the one before. From the hand made pasta, to the sourdough bread, to the wood-burning oven – it was quite a treat.
The Food Is Bomb Dot Com
The Chef spent some time in Stresa which if you have never been to that part of Italy, you should go for the olive oils alone. Stresa is a resort town on Lake Maggiore and I am convinced it is impossible to have a bad meal there; just like Da Mario’s.
What To Order?
The menu has so many amazing dishes on it, it’s impossible to decide. My suggestion
The Cure? Cured Meats!
The cured meats board – Salumeria from Parma. These robust salumis are flavored with sea salt, black pepper and juniper berries and cure over 18-24 months. Da Mario’s Culatello is flown directly from Italy’s Param region.
Cheese and Honey Plate
While the cheese plate is to die for, what got my attention was the honeys. If this doesn’t make your mouth water, you may need to go see a doctor!
Sous-Vide Osso Bucco
Before I can even tell you about the pasta I have to tell you about the
So Many Pasta Dishes To Try
Cappellacci, flamming spaghetti, pappardelle, agnolotti or
Special Gelatto and Tiramisu
Just like you should never buy a nice handbag without the matching wallet, you also should never go to an amazing restaurant without sampling desserts. Hands down my favorite
The Star In The Frisco Star
No doubt about it, if you’re visiting Dallas, you have to go to The Star and checkout Da Mario’s. You will feel like family and leave with a smile on your face!
