8.3 For Hopdoddy's Burgers, No Points For The Name

This week at the Statesman Mike Sutter gives Hopdoddy an 8.3 for the food, but isn't as wild about the name: "Let's admit that you can never sound cool saying the name of this place...I'll forever be more comfortable saying `that fancy burger place across from the Continental Club.' Or, `You know, where Cissi's Wine Bar used to be.'"

Meanwhile, over at the Chronicle, Claudia Alarcon checked out the new menu chef Mizael Sau­ce­do has rolled out at Urban at the Westin in the Domain and reports back that "the chef has not skipped a beat, bringing his eco-friendly style and ethics with him" and dubs Urban worth the trip.

The Fearless Critic says what the peach to the Peached Tortilla: "We wish the truck would settle down in a trailer park...instead of chasing the drunken herds—its inconsistencies would likely even out if it could just hold the peach still." [FC]

And, what's this? The Dallas Observer says Olivia's brunch is worth a road trip, even if they're wrong about it being new
: "One of those bright spots is Olivia, the city's newest, buzziest locavore hangout bursting at the seams with lovingly prepared, locally sourced smugness." [DO]
