The Reincarnation of Zanzibar
At first glance, Z-Bar, the new phoenix that’s risen from the ashes of amiable old Zanzibar, might seem a little on the schizo side. The old Zanzibar logo still lurks about the premises, and this new Z-Bar also encompasses the Bubble Room, a jazz enclave that was separate from the restaurant Before the Fire. A common entrance now leads on the right to the art-brightened dining room, on the left to the mood-lighted music space, which boasts a balcony where jazz-loving diners can enjoy both pursuits.
This reluctance to abandon the old ambience extends to menu listings, which have not changed-thereby indicating an if-it-ain’t-broke-don’t-fix-it attitude, rather than a split personality, I’d guess. Certainly, thefood on our visits needed no improvement.A day’s special appetizer of baked Briecheese was meltingly delicious, but so wasthe nicely herbed house pate. Peppered tunasteak was moistly tender, barely kissed withnutmeg in creamy sauce and accompaniedby sturdy fettuccini and vegetables in oliveoil. A blackened New York strip held lustyblue cheese in its rosy heart-a great combination marred only by the fact that itscompanion baked potato was wrapped in(shudder) foil. But foil aside, folks who bemoaned the death of Zanzibar can heartilycelebrate its rebirth as Z-Bar. 2914 Greenville Ave. 828-0352. -B.C
ON THE ROAD
There’s a Sons IN MY Soup
Try telling your friends you made one of the most delicious discoveries in recent memory at D/FW International Airport, and see how many offer to escort you to some happy place where you can be kept from hurting yourself. But escort them, instead, to D/FW’s Hyatt Regency hotel, and I guarantee il Nonno’s will change their tune. Every member of the restaurant’s wait staff is also a trained operatic singer, serving up Mozart with the mussels and Verdi with the veal and handling both assignments with rare skill and charm. Somehow, they even manage to take their solo singing turns without interrupting the pace of your meal, which is fortunate. The Northern Italian fare here was superb on our visit, ranging from gourmet pizzas to a days-special entree combining fork-tender veal and moist chicken, and the tab still totaled no more than you’d expect to pay for an evening’s fine dining or entertainment alone. To me, il Nonno’s is a major cultural and culinary find. But don’t fail to call for reservations-the place gets crowded. Hyatt Regency D/FW, East Tower. 453-8400. Dinner, Monday through Saturday, 6-10 p.m. – B.C.
An Ambitious Bistro
amici SIgnature Italian Squeezed between railroad tracks and far north Stemmons Freeway in Carrollton is a vest-pocket-sized historical district with a bit of the flavor of the West End but without all the crowds and bustle. On the second floor of one of the quaint storefront buildings a surprisingly ambitious-and successful-Italian restaurant has opened. These days I measure the adventurousness of an Italian kitchen by whether it serves polenta, that dish of gussied-up cornmeal mush that is now conquering the civilized world. This new little Italian bistro, Amici, does serve an appetizer portion of baked polenta, enriched with ricotta and provolone cheeses and moistened with bechamel and tomato sauces. For those who want to begin with something less dauntingly heavy, Amici also features an unusual salad of immaculately carved orange and grapefruit wedges drizzled with olive oil and dashed with a bit of crushed red pepper.
The entrees include classical items like veal francese-scalop-pini lightly touched with lemon butter sauce-and American adaptations of standard Italian dishes that have become classics too, such as polio alfredo (chicken breast served with fettuccine tossed with cream and Parmesan cheese). Other choices are more inventive. Medallions of lamb come to the table in an intense sauce of reduced red wine liberally perfumed wim fresh basil. Grilled scallops with eggplant proved to be the only dish here that sounded better than it tasted: The enormous, rather fibrous sea scallops had picked up a charred flavor from the grill, and the rounds of eggplant were rather lost on top of an oversized portion of linguine.
The dessert menu offers such standards as creme bulee, but the best things here are the frozen desserts. We happily stained our mouths with the tart blueberry sherbet, and the creamy hazelnut gelato is the ultimate in richness and flavor. We found that the friendly service at Amici matches the high standards set by the cuisine and only wished it were closer to home. 1022 S. Broadway, Carrollton. 245-3191. Lunch, Mon.-Fri. 11:30-2:30; dinner, Mon.-Thur. 5:30-9; Fri. & Sat. 5:30-10. Closed Sun. All credit cards. Moderate to expensive. -W.L. Taitte
Fast and Easy
EZ’s It took a certain amount of chutzpah for this San Antonio chain specializing in burgers and pizzas to open its first Metroplex location only a couple of feet away from Slider & Blues- successfully specializing, of course, in burgers and pizzas. But it appears there may be enough differences in style between the two establishments, and enough of a market out there, that both can flourish. EZ’s has remodeled a local landmark, the old Kip’s at Hillcrest and Northwest Highway. You have to stand in line to order your food, and it can take a long time to get your order-particularly when it is a crowded Saturday evening and you have had the lack of foresight to order the roast chicken.
EZ’s may lack something in the way of amenities, but the food is amazingly good and reasonably priced. It’s surprising in a place with a bustling, almost fast-food atmosphere that the standard salad is a quite respectable Caesar, available in two sizes. There’s a choice of wines by the glass and of beers on draft, but if your hankering is for something sweeter there are also homemade shakes.
The pizza cooks in a wood-burning oven, and its style is more conventional than the crispy, thin-crusted kind offered next door. Among the new-wave choices here is focaccia, with which the grownups can get their garlic-and-rosemary fixes while the kids are chomping on fries and skinny onion rings. The sandwiches can be superb, both the moist chicken breast with cheddar, anointed with honey mustard dressing, and the unlikely sounding but delicious bean burger, which tops a hamburger patty with black beans, corn chips and salsa. Best of all New Restaurants
is the roast chicken. Amid manyapologies and promises that it was almostready, we actually waited nearly 45minutes for it to arrive-but we all agreedit had been worth the delay. The wood-burning oven had crisped the skinlusciously, and more garlic and rosemaryperfumed every bite. McDonald’s wasnever like this, and neither was Kip’s BigBoy. 6838 W. Northwest Highway.750-6677.

New-Style Italian Debuts in North Dallas
ANDIAMO’S Andiamo’s is the latest addition to the Little Italy on Belt Line; it advertises “halo-French” cuisine but the Gallic touches aren’t evident on the menu which covers most of the currently favored Italian dishes with a few unusual exceptions and inclusions. (For instance, there’s no pizza on the menu, no lasagne, manicotti or Bolognese sauce; but there are six shrimp dishes, and several featuring chicken and veal.) This is definitely not mama-mia Italian. There are interesting twists to most of the dishes: The cheese garlic toast was spread lightly with pesto under a sprinkling of lightly browned shredded cheese, and salad Andiamo was a toss of romaine and radicchio with calamata olives. The decor is upscale casual, too; wood arches separate the bar from the dining room and frame a view of the semiopen kitchen with its shining copper pots and pans.
There is no printed menu, just a list of daily specials and menus permanently posted on the walls. But our waiter took his work very seriously-he made earnest recommendations about wine and food and seemed knowledgeable about both.
The cold antipasto plate sounded good on a hot, humid evening and our anticipation was rewarded by the heaping platter. A bed of torn romaine lettuce held slices of Italian salami, grilled eggplant and zucchini, peeled red peppers, marinated crab claws and artichoke hearts, pink slices of cured salmon, a pile of cannelini beans, and three balls of fresh bocconcini (miniature mozzarella) cheese. The whole was scattered with fresh arugula leaves and big shavings of nutty-sweet Parmesan.
All the portions were similarly giant-sized-entrees and side dishes were both delivered on platters. The tomato sauce covering the gnocchi pomodoro with ham slivers had a slight bite of heat. And the same sauce bathed the spaghetti and the angel hair that were part of the pasta trio. The other pastas we tried included fusilli with a creamy, remarkably fresh-tasting pesto sauce and fettuccine alfredo with a light reduced cream sauce. Pounded veal scallops were topped with artichoke hearts and a tangy lemon sauce.
Dessert servings were as large as theentrees, though unfortunately not as satisfying. Cappuccino pie was the usualwedge of coffee ice cream; zucotta wasmediocre pound cake sandwiched withchocolate and white chocolate cream fillings in a deep pool of chocolate swirledwith cream, Cappuccino came crowned withDQ-style whipped cream, though thecoffee under the cloud was blessedlystrong stuff. 4151 Belt Line. 233-1515.Mon.-Fri. 11-2:30, 5-10:30, Sat. 5-10:30.Closed Sun.

D Revisits Far East. If the food’s good, all-you-can-eat places drive me crazy twice-first with frustration for lacking the capacity to try some of everything, second with envy for companions who can. Fortunately, Far East’s Mongolian barbecue dinners are inexpensive enough to be a great bargain for both of us, as well as intriguing enough to make me wonder why the concept isn’t more widely offered. If you’re not acquainted with Mongolian barbecue, it involves a sort of raw-food buffet array of meats (thin-shaved beef, lamb, pork and poultry), vegetables, fruits and seasoning sauces from which you compose your own heaped-plate assortment, which is then passed along to a cook for jiffystir-grilling on a huge, hot steel griddle. Far East’sselection was all super-fresh, and my companionseemed as happy with his beef piqued with pepperas 1 was with a symphony of soy-spiked lamb,pineapple, chopped scallions and sprouts. With thisentree come soup, egg roll, steamed rice and a wonderful, fine-grained fried Chinese bread ($8.50 foradults, $4.50 for those under 10). To compound thedifficulty of decision-making here, there’s also acomplete private menu of Chinese dishes; we par-ticulary savored succulent crisp-bottomed potstick-ers, served with a terrific soy-oil dipping sauce wekept to complement other courses. 4830 Greenville.373-6041. Inexpensive. -B.C.
D Revisits Texas Jade. I’m not sure how accuratea reading I can give you on the basis of our latestvisit to this pretty place-rehearsals for an upcoming mystery night were going on in the bar area, andthe realistic gunshots and screams that punctuatedthe meal may have affected my reactions to someextent. Certainly, they affected the service, whichranged from uninterested to distraught at first, butwarmed to cordiality by mid-dinner. Dishes wetried ranged from quite acceptable to not-quite outstanding-skewered chicken tenders, sliced thin,exotically marinated and served sizzling hot, werethe best appetizer; potstickers were average, andcrab Rangoon held far more fried crunch thancreamy filling. Hot and sour soup delivered exceptionally piquant punch; chicken corn was velvet-textured and delicious. Garlic shrimp werelight-my-fire garlicky, colorfully complementedwith carrot coins and baby corn. Moo shu chicken,mild and soothing, carried extra crunch in theshredded cabbage that accompanied chopped scallions and tender breast meat in each deftly foldedcrepe. The restaurant decor, all rich mauve upholstery against black woodwork and carpets, sets ahandsome scene for quiet dining, I imagine, whenmurder rehearsals are not underwav. 3227 McKin-neyAve. 871-8898. Moderate. -B.C.
D Revisits The French Room. An undeniable liers and the faux marble columns, but a recent dinner persuaded us that everything else about The French Room had fallen precipitously. The seasoned, suavely insistent captain who took our order fit the ambience, but the attempts at high style by those who actually brought the food to the table were laughably gauche. A dish of fresh snails surrounding a centerpiece of phyllo pastry sounded wonderful, but the snails had an off taste and texture. Dover sole wrapped around a fish mousse and served with morel mushrooms is named after Jean Banchet, the chef who inspired the original menu here-but now the mousse is heavy and the fish Fillet overcooked. Other dishes sampled also lacked inspiration and came with those single medallions of various undercooked vegetables that were passe” by the mid-’80s. Only the dessert of puff pastry filled with custard and fresh raspberries and lapped by caramel and fruit sauces brought back memories of happier times in what not so long ago was Dallas’ premier dining spot. The Adolphus Hotel, 1321 Commerce. 742-8200, Very expensive. -W.LT.
D Revisits Cafe Nelu. The bright and airy new location has revitalized Cafe Nelu, even making the sometimes heavy renditions of Greek and Romanian dishes seem lighter and more enjoyable. The best way to start a meal is with the dolmas-huge, tender stuffed grape leaves served with intensely red tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, Mediterranean olives, feta cheese and sour cream. Then move on to the scampi, colorfully sauced with garlic and bles tossed with snippets of fresh dill. Or samplethe mititei, homemade sausages of pork, lamb andbeef with a fine grilled flavor. The only reservationwe had about our meal concerned the salmon steak,which had been grilled to the point of being a taddry but was crispy and still tasty. 56 Arapaho Village (Arapaho and Westshore), Richardson. 235-5387. Inexpensive to moderate. -W.L.T
D Revisits Highland Park Pharmacy. It’s hardto imagine Dallas without the Highland Park Pharmacy. Somehow it remains true to itself, though every time I go there, usually for the grilled cheesesandwich and a shake but sometimes for a “PalmBeach” (pimento cheese) sandwich and a soda, 1expect it to have become a parody of itself. It neverhas; though the menu has succumbed to a few modernisms in the juice and water department, basicallythe formula remains the same. With all the care andresearch given to creating relaxing and appealingambience in fine restaurants, no place makes youslow down to childhood’s pace the way the pharmacy does. All this and lunch in 30 minutes. 3229Knox. 521-2126. Inexpensive. -M.B.M
D Revisits Nero’s. This is a personal favorite and not just because it is close to my house. I think I would like Nero”s even if I were driving in from Bedford. The small, dimly red-lit front dining room with the santos over the bar and the charming sconces can be as intimate or as convivial as your company; the arias soaring over the sound system create a curtain of sound between the crowded tables. The food pulls no punches, either. Specials and pastas are both dependably flavorful-I particularly like the mix of mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes and noodles. And the garlickv anchovy Caesar is probably the most fearlessly pungent salad intown; together with the hot rosemary-strewn focac-cia bread, it makes a meal. 2104 Greenville Ave.S26-6376. Moderate. -M.B.M.
D Revisits Ruggeri’s. Despite increasing competition from the crowd of Italian eateries that haveopened in the last lew years. Ruggeri’s still deserves its longstanding reputation as one of the bestItalian restaurants in Dallas; the food on our lastvisit was excellent, the service was professionallyattentive and the skylit setting is enduringly charming. We stuck mostly with classics: Fried ravioliwere crisp, not tough; a terrific, light Bolognesesauce covered a plate of spaghetti; veal scallopswere tender and thin in their lemon bath, and thiscould be the best manicotti in town-a tender golden crepe folded around a cloud of ricotta. The special dish of layered chicken, eggplant andmozzarella was equally satisfying. 2911 Routh St.871-7377. Moderate to expensive. -M.B.M.
D Revisits Uncle Julio’s. It had been a while since we dropped in on the Greenville Avenue outpost of this upscale Mexican group, and we weresurprised to discover a make-over had left moreroom for dining in less atmosphere. The food,though, was better than ever and the service wonderfully professional. Ceviche replete with marinated shrimp, scallops and haddock made an assertive,fresh-tasting beginning. One of the house specialties, broiled quail, is outstanding-the best treatment of these hard-to-fix little birds we’ve eatenthis side of a five-star restaurant. 7557 GreenvilleAve. 987-9900. Moderate. -W.L.T.
D Revisits Aransas Pass. I doubt there’s anyseason that a visit to this warm-spirited placewouldn’t be pleasurable, but certainly in summer itevokes warm sea-breeze associations with particular sweetness, thanks partly to one of the prettiestpatio settings around. Crafty plotter that I am, onmy recent visit here, I conned my companion intoordering two dishes I’d enjoyed before. Both wereas rewarding as 1 remembered: Shrimp sausagequesadillas were even better than before, thesausage toned to let the shrimp shine through.zipped with tomatillo chutney; and pork tenderloinglazed with jalapeno honey was potently partneredwith a sweet com and black bean chile relleno forpleasurable pain. Soup was a double triumph, halfRoma tomato, flavored with lusty andouillesausage, half gentle eggplant with Romano cheeseand crisply garnished with fried leek threads. Myentree, a snapper marked with X’s from the grill,was superbly moist and lovely on crawfish-ladencreamy sauce; its other component, pecan-crustedsoft-shell crab, was unexpectedly eclipsed by thetender fish. The newest dessert, a ball of house-made mocha ice cream rolled first in chocolatefudge, then hazelnuts, was prettily presented onsimple strawberry coulis. 2912 N. Henderson. 827-8650. Moderate to expensive. -B.C.
D Revisits The Bronx. This perennially happy Oak Lawn hangout doesn’t bother to categorize itself or its food–it doesn’t have to: Its service and ambience are unvaryingly comfortable, and itsrather short menu has never yet failed to deliver satisfaction on my visits. Caesar salad was a kitchen-tossed classic of clean, crisp young greens, and ashared starter of quesadillas held a mellow melangeof chicken breast, spinach, onions, peppers andMonterey jack cheese in its tortilla folds, with potent pico de gallo. sour cream and fresh guacamoleon the side. My companion’s saute of chickenbreast with mushrooms and artichoke hearts waspleasant indeed, but the unrivaled star of the mealwas a ramekin of rigatoni baked in homemadetomato sauce with Gorgonzola, mozzarella andParmesan cheeses studded with Italian sausage andchicken-sheer poetry. 3835 Cedar Springs. 521-5821. Inexpensive to moderate. -B.C.
D Revisits Dakota’s. Grilling and smoking come into their own here, as befits a restaurant that defines itself as a New American grill. Our last visit’s star starter, for instance, was a muy macho que-sadilla of spicy venison sausage, grilled with anchochilies, Monterey Jack cheese and cilantro andserved with toasted pumpkin seed salsa. Grilledpork rib chops were equally outstanding, rubbedwith piquant spices and served over a straightforwardly Southwestern three-bean relish and roastedapple-onion sauce. An entree of poached salmonmedallions, silken as rose petals, spread on fresh,garlicky spinach with baby potatoes and smokedpepper purees, was wonderful indeed, especiallyconsidering that the dish, one of several light-fareofferings listed with nutritional numbers, clocked inat under 630 calories. Service, as always, was smartand young, the clientele looked the same, and thenovelty of stepping from one’s car into a sidewalkelevator mat delivers you to this handsome underground establishment has yet to wear off, as far asI’m concerned. 600 N.

D Revisits Huntington’s. Having tried on severalculinary identities, none of which quite fit, theWestin Hotel’s numero uno restaurant seems tohave found itself again, with laudable results. Themenu is such a classy compilation of New American dishes we had trouble choosing among them.Having chosen, we suffered only one disappointment, a much-recommended lobster tortilla inwhich we could discern no flavor of lobster, although its tomatillo and red bell pepper coulis wasmarvelous. Ah, well, the roasted garlic headbrought with hot bread and butter for openers wasan inspired bit of lagniappe. and a salad of spinach,red oak and frisee lettuces with mild Texas goatcheese sparkled in warm hazelnut dressing, lightlyapplied. Roast rack of lamb, herbed and accentedwith port mint sauce, came as two double chops,their tips interwoven; the riblet meat was rosy perfection. Dover sole meuniere, boned in the kitchen,was the essence of subtle delicacy. Hot berry cobbler with ice cream made a delectable finish, andpoached pear in Cointreau cream would have if thegentle cream had not been overpowered by a too-tart underlayer of raspberry and mango coulis. Thislast was the one instance of imbalance we experienced, however, and service could not have beenmore elegant, from proper flatware changes tometiculous timing of each course. Westin Hotel,Galleria, 13340 Dallas Pkwy. 851-2882. Expensiveto very expensive. -B. C.
D Revisits Arthur’s. Arthur’s may not light any fires for cutting-edge creativity, but even the grand old cliche dishes served here are prepared and served with rich flair. Steak tartare was the nearest-to-flawed item we sampled: The splendid mound of lean beef held a few shreds of white tissue and no seasoning that we could discern. A Caesar salad was perfect, its romaine young and evenly coated with mellow dressing among greaseless croutons. Spinach salad was even better, the leaves and fresh mushrooms properly dried after washing to allow afine vinaigrette dressing to accent every bite.Wiener schnitzel was a classic, the thin-poundedleaves of veal gilded with the lightest crust, butter-sauteed, and topped with the traditional soft-yolkedfried egg. Fresh sea scallops were satin things,beautifully sauteed in lemony sauce spiked with Dijon mustard and capers. Creme caramel was a slightdisappointment, its browned-sugar crown chewierthan it should have been, but chocolate mousseserved in rich scoops made up for it. 8350 N. Central Expwy., Campbell Centre, Suite M 1000. 361-8833. Expensive. -B.C.
D Revisits Morton’s of Chicago. Morton’s must have been taking its Texas Attitude pills-the hidebound style of service that used to make ordering dinner here an exercise in irritation has flexed and warmed considerably, and our last dinner visit was as pleasant as I’ve had anywhere in recent memory. Granted, there’s still no printed menu per se; your waiter still runs through his show-and-tell number with cuts of beef displayed on a tableside cart. But you don’t have to memorize it anymore-now there’s at least a printed list of entrees with prices, and the entire bill of fare is visible on a corner blackboard. Splendid fare it was, too-my double filet mignon, perfectly charred outside, meltingly rare within, would have fed a whole family, and my companion’s equally imposing double cut of prime rib literally dwarfed his plate. Even the fresh, green stalks of asparagus seemed longer and greener than ordinary, and a saute of mushrooms and spinach was better than I’d imagined the combination could possibly be. Far as I can tell, the only disadvantage Morton’s labors under now is its slightly off-track location, around the comer and downstairs from the West End’s main activity. In a way, that’s actually a plus-the place is traffic-free, and curbside valet service was instantaneous, both on entering andleaving. Service throughout the evening, in fact,was friendly and flawless; pricey as Morton’s is,you get your money’s worth. 501 Elm. 741-2277.Expensive. -B. C.
D Revisits Deli-News. The new Crescent Courtlocation, far larger and posher, lacks the EasternEuropean soulfulness of the tiny far north Dallasoriginal, but the wide selection of deli specialties isparticularly welcome in the new neighborhood,where they have been hard to find. The choppedliver, for instance, is smooth, slightly sweet andvery fresh tasting, and the soups such as hot cabbage borsch bring a homey warmth to the table.Both are served with baskets of the superlativehome-baked breads that are one of Deli-News’prime attractions. The oversized sandwiches, likethe grilled Reuben enfolding a mountain of home-corned beef, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese, really aretoo thick to eat comfortably-but no less mouthwatering for that. Not all the comers of the huge menucan be explored with equal profit. The intriguing-sounding Romanian tenderloin steak with onionsand mushrooms turned out to be inedibly toughflank instead, and some of the baked desserts aredisappointing after those splendid breads. But Deli-News is a refreshingly unpretentious delight, especially noteworthy in such an uptown environmentas the Crescent. 500 The Crescent Court, 922-DELL 15715 Hillcrest, 392-DEU.
