We were at the State Fair yesterday and sat in on the demonstration by celebrity chef Jack Perkins. Jack is the guy who started a great Dallas burger joint called Maple and Motor. A nice stop for any meat-o-phile. Well he announced he will be opening a BBQ restaurant down in the design district on Irving Boulevard. If he does for BBQ what he has done for burgers I look forward to checking it out. I believe he said opening is planned for early next year.
