Eight years ago, Jay started cooking pizzas in his backyard oven just for fun. Today he oversees a vast Cane Rosso pizza empire that sprawls from Houston to Austin to The Star in Frisco. Tim and Zac talk with him about how he did it, the pizza magazine the three plan to launch together, and dirty feet. Oh, also, they come up with a great new slogan for the city of Addison. Five stars!
D Magazine burger editor pro tem — and sometime literary agent — David Hale Smith stopped by the Old Monk to talk about all the hunks of meat he consumed for our Best Burgers in Dallas issue and how his New York colleagues still can't understand that Dallas isn't a wasteland of wagon wheels and oil derricks.
