Chamberlain's Fish Market Gets Two Stars, & More

Leslie Brenner gave Chamberlain's Fish Market Grill two stars: The recently updated interior is "comfortably upscale, old-school and unpretentious", as is the menu, which offers "nothing very modern or trendy". Starters of crab cakes and lobster bisque satisfy, but others miss the mark; nicely cooked fish is often overwhelmed by the sauce its paired with, and previously frozen crab legs are way overpriced, leading to an overall impression of a restaurant where "the cooking is uneven".

Kim Pierce reviewed DaLat: She's a big fan of the "Vietnamese-ish comfort food" served at the restaurant located in "an otherwise drab transitional East Dallas neighborhood". Chicken pho's broth is "pure and good", though the white meat is dry; a better choice is the vermicelli noodle soup with meatballs and shrimp. Green apaya salad and meatball shooters make great starters, and the self-serve condiment bar is a bonus, though service can be "spacey", and fusion items like tacos and chili "feel more like works in progress".

Scott Reitz visited the newly reopened Desta: The North Dallas Ethiopian restaurant was marred by tragedy when the owners were murdered last summer, but family members have banded together to reopen. In a sleek space that "could easily double as a stylish downtown bar", the menu "offers a twist on classic Ethiopian cooking", with traditional dishes like doro wat and tibbs that can even be made Lent-friendly with fish.
