Doug Brown closed his Southside bistro Amuse but only in an effort to relocate to Victory Park (under a new name). The old Amuse address will now be inhabited by a new Brown creation: Sala. Those who like a little flair with their Southwestern food might make this a regular stop. Lunch & Dinner daily, Brunch Sun. Sala, 1326 S. Lamar St., Dallas, TX 75215, 214-428-7300.
If you happen to crave burgers and fries on a regular basis then head to the Dallas Galleria for its latest restaurant debut: Five Guys Burgers and Fries. The eatery is known for its french fries, and now Dallas finally gets to sample the Five Guys or Cajun-style potato pleasers. Lunch & Dinner daily. Five Guys Burgers and Fries, Dallas Galleria, 13350 Dallas Pkwy., Dallas, TX 75240, 972-239-8470.
Bolsa Bolsa has opened in Oak Cliff and "fresh" is the focus of chef Graham Dodds' kitchen---no freezer or fryer in the vicinity. Local vendors support the effort. Texas tomatoes with mascarpone, goat cheese and basil and lemon-honey cake with peaches make good noshes at the wine bar with its affordable bottles and house-made sangría. Lunch & Dinner daily, Brunch Sun. Bolsa, 614 W. Davis St., Dallas, TX 75208, 214-367-9367.

Craft Dallas Finds a Cause

Dallas' Restaurant Week has come and gone yet Craft Dallas in the W Dallas-Victory hotel can't let go. The popularity of this charitable event and the nation's financial crunch has inspired Craft to offer a Restaurant Week every month. Opposed to waiting for KRLD to kick off its annual week of fundraising, every second week of every month diners can enjoy a three-course meal for $45 at Craft. Of this amount, $5 will be donated to Craft's charity of choice.

Craft Dallas, W Dallas–Victory, 2440 Victory Park Lane, Ste. 100, Dallas, TX 75219, 214-397-4111.
Renovation Revealed
Kent Rathbun's Abacus restaurant has undergone a transformation in regard to its interior design and menu. Dinner nightly. Abacus, 4511 McKinney Ave., Dallas, TX 75205, 214-559-3111.
Bar Bites at Nana
Nana restaurant atop the Hilton Anatole not only has a spectacular view but a brand new bar menu. Your favorite corner-bar basket of wings or fries will never seem as tasty again after you savor Nana's grilled quail with caramelized Fuji apples and onion streusel. Nana, Hilton Anatole, 2201 Stemmons Freeway, Dallas, TX 75207, 214-761-7470.
