PLANO—Taverna Rossa serves its queso with Fritos (which is frankly kinda awesome), but many people have requested tortilla chips, so they're letting the customers decide: Order queso right now and it'll come flanked by both types of chips, then customers can vote for their favorite; the winner will be served with the dip come April. Best of all, part of the proceeds go to the North Texas Food Bank. [Eaterwire]

PARK CITIES—Swanky Highland Park Village spot Lounge 31 (upstairs from Bistro 31) is launching a new Sunday brunch beginning April 6 with a DIY Bloody Mary bar, Bloody Mary cart service and half-price Champagne. Signature Bloodys include a Bangkok Bloody with soy sauce, sriracha, wasabi and togarashi, garnished with tempura shrimp and shishito pepper; there's also several new brunch dishes like duck hash and eggs. Brunch runs from noon-4 p.m. on Sundays. [Eaterwire]

UPPER GREENVILLE—A local burger blogger has some, er, interesting praise for the Thai peanut burger at Grub Burger Bar: "I decided I'm going to call this the Lance Armstrong of burgers because it keeps all the flavor-wheels on your head-bike turning, but it simply had more nuts…… Get it?"
