Diner of the Week: Crossroads Diner in Dallas, Texas. The juncture that has brought Chefs Tom Fleming and Carl Strelecki together started from a relationship born over 10 years ago. Working together at Lombardi Mare, Tom as the Executive Chef and Carl as his apprentice, they quickly realized they had a strong common denominator: they were both inspired by their mother’s cooking. This inspiration translated to many fundamental values shared between themthe most notable being simple ingredients, delicious food, and value-driven dishes. Over the years, their roads would continue to cross as they again worked together at several notable restaurants and hotels, including Central 214 at Hotel Palomar. The final juncture came when this complimentary pair realized it was time for them to take the ultimate step, opening their own restaurant. Melt-in-your-mouth buttermilk Pancakes, savory Meatloaf, creamy Mac and Cheese, signature Sticky Buns and memorable Quiches are a small sampling of the extensive menu Crossroads Diner offers. Selections are many, but one thing remains constant: ample servings of fresh, made-from-scratch food that is as delicious as it is affordable. Check out Crossroads Diner website. Google map.
Whatever form the celebration takes, the message is the same:
“Ride for a Reason, Ride for a Purpose, Ride for Special Olympics!”
