As expected, the front room of the East Village Dallas BBQ has gotten a slick remodeling heres a peek at the wooden planks, exposed brick, and Edison bulb chandeliers! And presto: With the flick of a switch wired to a filament bulb, an establishment that once defined drab has gone allMason Dixon and Johnny Utahs on us. On the surface, this seems ridiculous, but hey, now that BBQ is officially foodie approved, why shouldnt they go for stockyard chic? At least they didnt put any taxidermy up.
