Fire and Brimstone at The Standard Pour

After seeing a number of press releases and blog posts detailing the food at The Standard Pour, I decided to head to the Uptown gastropub to see if the place was worthwhile. I was hoping the "Cocktail Den and Cravings Kitchen" would be the neighborhood's answer to Ten Bell's Tavern, the Oak Cliff Bar where the food is just as good as the booze.

The Standard Pour got only one of the two right, during my visits.

The drinks I had while dining at the bar were well thought out and balanced, but eating here was often a disappointment. Execution was off, meat was overcooked, and dishes were overly greasy or otherwise out of balance.

The bar looks great, though, and earlier in the week, when you can still get a seat, this is one of the better bars you can indulge along McKinney Avenue. Just look elsewhere if you get hungry and want to eat well.

Where is the +sshole in a fedora?  Come on, I wanna see someone in the requisite hipster "gittup"..........maybe throw in a used blazer, beard or occupy Wallstreet moxy.  Come on, I've seen ya'll down at Lula B's, chain smoking and buying a 1970's toaster for, like 65 bucks.  Meanwhile, you don't have a pot to piss in, but you got a toaster, the same one I hurled at my brother in 1976, when the Hab's beat the Bruin's in the Cup. 



Right?  That was posted this morning before my coffee, and meds. Seems a little harsh, but made me chuckle!  And we all know if you can entertain yourself, you can entertain anybody.
