This week, local critics reviewed subdued suburbia, urban swank and an old classic. Here's what they thought:

DALLAS MORNING NEWS -- Leslie Brenner reviews Dee Lincoln's Restaurant and Bubble Bar at Rosewood Court, which "feels a little Forever 21" with its over-the-top decor. She gives two stars for a wine selection that "isn't particularly exciting" and is served at inappropriate temperatures from Enomatic dispensers, below-par caviar and a shrimpless shrimp and grits. -- Cathy Frisinger visited the "spare but chic" Bizzi's Wine and Cheese Bistro in Bedford and praised the home-made foccacia. Her "surprise favorite" was a sun-dried tomato and Swiss flatbread, but says the service is uneven and because it's a non-chain, family-owned joint, it may be that the "consistency that suburbanites prize in their chain restaurants isn't there."

DALLAS OBSERVER -- Scott Reitz liked the homey feel of The Grape and particularly the off-menu items: calamari and a venison and veal terrine. He praises the burger but also cautions diners not to focus totally on the food--it's a fine table-watching venue, too.
