The Impossible Burger: A cardiologist, a vegan and a butcher all take a bite
Hey, Bud! I saw a sign on the old Picchi-Pacchi location about some kind of butcher shop opening. Know anything?
—Guy in the office
The Wicked Butcher is the restaurant in the new Sinclair downtown, 512 Main St. It’s a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel expected to open in April. According to the advertising, it offers a full menu of clichés: “a butcher’s deft, handcrafted approach” to serving “sharable and artfully presented meat, fish and raw bar dishes.” (If you miss Picchi Pacchi, it moved to 411 W. Seventh St.)
Hey, Bud! Where can we get pastel de nata in the DFW area?
—Frosty, Fort Worth
I’m not sure, but it’s listed on the menu at 85°C Bakery Cafe in the Left Bank shops. (Check first. 85°C tends to run out of stuff.)
Hey, Bud! Can you tell me how to buy the old [vacant restaurant]? We have the perfect business plan for it.
I’m flattered that you thought of me. But if your business plan starts with “send Facebook message to ask how to buy property,” then I’m not too sure about the business plan.
