Bishop Cider Co., planned for the Bishop Arts District near Lockhart Smokehouse, announced on Facebook they have received a permit from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. The owners expect to apply for a certificate of occupancy from the city this week, and “we will be able to start making our first batch and letting all of you in to see the place and celebrate. The big party won’t be until our first batch is done, but we’ll email out about that when the date is set. As mentioned- get on our email list to stay in the know.

Bolsa, which is featured in the May Advocate, received three stars from Dallas Morning News critic Leslie Brenner.

Three of the best bloody marys in the Dallas area are in Oak Cliff, according to Eater, at Boulevardier, Jonathon’s and Smoke.

Chef Tim Byres of Smoke, Chicken Scratch and Outpost American Tavern won a James Beard Award for his cookbook, “Smoke: New Firewood Cooking.”
