DOWNTOWN -- Remember the Golden Pheasant? Probably not if you weren't a super swingin' dining scenester a half-century ago, which is why Nancy Nichols over at SideDish profiled the restaurant, which burned in 1964, in her History of Dallas Food series. Its former location: 1417 Commerce Street downtown. [SideDish]

ZOMG BBQ -- Daniel "BBQ Snob" Vaughn's first Texas Monthly column runs today, and in it he talks about Dallas' BBQ revival, plus his five local favorites. They're: Smoke, Meshack's, Pecan Lodge and ... well, we're not going to do all the work for you. [TexasMonthly]

EXPOSITION PARK -- Hey, when's the last time you stopped by the Meridian Room for half-price food on Wednesdays? Well, it's Wednesday now, so you're out of excuses. [EaterWire]
