From a blood orange margarita to new pastas on the menu, the most difficult part of the evening will certainly be choosing what to order. Check out the House-made Egg Noodle Spaghetti with jumbo lump crab, sweet pepper, chile, crispy garlic, and saffron or the Tuna Escabeche with sweet peppers & crispy garlic. Often named one of the best restaurants in Dallas – you can’t go wrong at Gemma restaurant. We’ll see you there!

Updated: March 2019: The Drunken Clam Pop-Up is now closed! But, be sure to check out The Whippersnapper — newly updated!
The Drunken Clam pop-up, the famous haunt from The Family Guy, will be open until February 2nd from 6pm to 2am Wednesdays through Saturdays at The Whippersnapper off of Henderson Avenue. You’ll find special drinks like Peter’s Pawtucket Patriot Ale, Stewie’s Cool Hwhip, Brian’s Martini, and Ooooh Yeah Shots.
“Customers will find Family Guy references in every nook and cranny, including the restrooms and nestled among the bottles behind the bar. Additional surprises are in-store to keep the pop-up fresh throughout its month-long run, so frequent visits could yield entirely different experiences. None of which will rely on good, old-fashioned values.”

D Magazine recently called Taco Heads on Henderson Avenue: “Dallas’ Prettiest Taco Spot.” And, “as for why Taco Heads’ second location landed on Henderson” owner Sarah Castillo said, “This street just fit us. It’s funky. There’s kind of an Austin vibe here. The other day, I saw a guy in a Speedo on a scooter, and I was like, okay, I love it here.” Read the full article here.
