Sundown at Granada’s Second Anniversary Deals
The organic-skewing Lower Greenville restaurant-bar is celebrating its second anniversary by treating diners to “Kale and Ale” – half off any salad and bottled beers for $1. Best part is, the special runs from tonight through Thursday. Sounds to us like several reasons to celebrate!

Dassai Sake Dinner at Tei-An
Chef-owner Teiichi Sakurai will bring to life a four-course meal to pair with Dassai Sake, which has won raves and kudos for brewing all year-round, which is extremely rare. Dassai is also known for mixing traditional sake production processes with a centrifuge process and concocting a sake that mills rice grains to 23 percent of its original size (50% creates a super premium product), making for an unusually refined brew. Sake fanatics will want to snag a seat to the $125 dinner immediately; call 214-220-2828.

Benefit Dinner by Chef DAT at Garden Café 
Dallas’ pop-up dinner prince is lending his culinary talents to helping local growers. Chef DAT (David Anthony Temple) is cooking up a six-course tasting menu that will not only benefit the nonprofit White Rock Local Market, but also use ingredients from a number of the ranchers and purveyors who sell there. Look out for components from Texas Honey Bee Guild, Fruth Farms Southwest and Latte Da Dairy, among others. The dinner is $70 per person and BYOB; call 214-680-5740 to reserve a spot at the meal within the cozy Lakewood cafe, or email chef DAT at

Beer Tapping at FM Smokehouse
The Las Colinas barbecue spot (pictured) is busting out the tap again and cracking into (512) Brewing Co.’s Cascabel Cream Stout. The roasty, malty beer from the Austin brewery has a touch of sweetness and a hint of heat, thanks to guajillo chiles. Partakers get a free (512) Brewing Co. pint glass as a bonus.

Next Wednesday, January 22
Cheddar Class at Scardello Cheese 
Scardello’s popular classes sell out well before we’re usually able to give them a shout-out, so we’re putting the word out well in advance. The Oak Lawn fromagerie is hosting Nothin’ But Cheddar next Wednesday, pairing samples with craft beers from here and abroad. Two-thirds of the class is already sold out, so don’t say we didn’t warn you to get on the good foot!
