fresh berry salad 2014

The guys who opened Goodfriend are working on opening a “package store,” to be located in a laundromat that is across the street from their popular burger/craft beer wonderland. The store will sell beer and food to go, according to CraveDFW. The owners have hired Stephanie Roethlisberger, “well known in the industry for her extreme knowledge and passion for beer to oversee the project,” says Crave. Plus, once the store opens there will be plenty more parking for Goodfriend patrons in the shopping center across the street.

Chef Dean Fearing, the man behind the highly-acclaimed Fearing’s restaurant at the Ritz Carlton and the “Father of Southwestern Food,” will be at the Lincoln Park Barnes & Noble to sign copies of his book, “The Texas Food Bible,” April 29 at 7 p.m.
