Your weekly helping of Dallas food news.

Beto & Son is now open at Trinity Groves in West Dallas:

According to the release:

“It all began nearly 25 years ago when Trinity Groves Founder and restaurant legend Phil Romano hired Beto [Rodarte] to create Nacho Mama’s in San Antonio. That concept was later acquired by Brinker International and rechristened Cozymel. Beto joined Brinker to manage the wildly successful chain, which taught many Americans about real Mexican food. Beto later served as Innovation Chef for the company, creating and testing new dishes for its outlets…Roasted carnitas noodle bowl with avocado, roasted fideo pasta and fried egg? Beer-battered salmon tacos? Mexican poutine? A margarita “mule?” This is Mexican? Yep, yep and oh man, where-have-you-been-all-my-life-good, yep. Beto & Son focuses on locally sourced ingredients, from-scratch preparation and eye-popping plates designed to please both palate and imagination. Fresh, vibrant and delicious, that’s the name of the game.”

“We decided to create the next generation of Mexican fare,” says Julian Rodarte, Beto’s son. “Taking the simple comfort food my father and I grew up with and modernizing it based on what people my age, Millennials and Gen Z, are looking for when they dine out.” Julian is a recent graduate of the Culinary Institute of America.
