I’ve already posted my review on Yelp and alerted my Yelp foodie friends in Dallas and Arlington, so it’s only fair to throw a shout out to those following events on the square. The new pub, The Pub McKinney, has the most incredible desserts. That’s not all it has, but, really, these desserts are unbelievable. The food’s great, the beer selection’s great, but the desserts will simply take your breath away. Oh, and the remodeling is fantastic. But the desserts …. you must stop by, if for no other reason than to try the flourless chocolate cake and the bread pudding. You won’t believe that they are both just $4 a piece. The bread pudding portion is humongous.
It was too windy today to make a complete circuit around the square. So here is what I noticed between the car and the pub. Doll Haven was having a sale (looked big, they had product out on the sidewalk). The ice cream parlor coming in next to Rick’s Chophouse is coming right along. They are now hiring and it looks like all of the fixtures are in place. They have a menu leaning up against the wall and their brewed coffee prices are very reasonable – under $2.
It’s great weather again and there were people sitting out on the patios at both Rick’s Chophouse and Landon’s Winery. The patios were somewhat sheltered from the wind by the buildings.
In other news, according to McKinneyEats.com, China Gate has re-opened but the first review isn’t great. Hutchin’s BBQ got a glowing review. Hutchin’s is not on the square or in the historic district but it close by (on Tennessee almost to 380) and it is a personal favorite. I had their smoked turkey the last time I was in and it was fantastic.
That’s it for this weekend as I’ll probably be in the garden tomorrow.
Have fun on the square.
