Q&A with the Manager

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
The Loft was seen in the recent movie Red Wing, which was filmed primarily in Whitewright and starred Luke Perry, Bill Paxton, and Frances Fisher.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We have happy hour Monday–Friday from 2–7 p.m. and all day on Sunday. On Wednesday nights we have karaoke, and on Thursday nights we have an open mic. We also feature three big screen TVs for watching sports.

Décor can say a lot about the type of food a restaurant serves. How does your décor inform or reflect your culinary practice?
Our décor reflects the personalities and interests of the owners, who are sky diving enthusiasts and rocket scientists. There is an airplane hanging in the middle of the dining room, a parachute hanging near the kitchen, sky-diving photos, and some de-commissioned rockets. We also mounted an old style movie projector on the wall.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Our pizza dough is made from scratch every morning. We toss it by hand right in front our diners before topping each pizza with mozzarella cheese and our signature marinara sauce. We offer freshly sliced jalapenos (not pickled or cooked) as a topping, and we hand-cut and cook our french fries to order. Each burger comes with a seasoned 1/3 pound patty and a side of fries or a salad.

Behind the brownstone façade of Cheesecake Amor Cafe & Wine Bar—a cozy eatery reminiscent of a quaint café—owners Gayle and Jeff Haynes pair signature gourmet cheesecakes and fine wines with a full menu of elegant Italian-American dishes. The warm café invites diners to curl up on a leather couch beside a flickering fire or slide their knees under polished black tables garnished by a selection of fine cheeses, pizzas, and entrees coupled with suggestions from a list of more than 60 wines. Gayle pours her passion for baking into an assortment of housemade cheesecake slices in 30 flavors, from classic New York style to liqueur and candy flavors.

Bob Landon has been making wine for decades, but he didn't always have French oak barrels and stainless steel tanks at his disposal. His first forays into small-batch winemaking took place in his basement, but like Batman's love of justice, his hobby was soon elevated to a profession. Today, he and the Landon Winery staff cultivate Texas–grown viognier and tempranillo grapes into a rotating selection of house varietals.

At either location, oenophiles can deepen their knowledge of wines or simply explore the facilities. The McKinney location features an old well that dates back more than 150 years, and the 15,000 square foot Greenville location boasts more than 100 oak barrels filled with grapey blends and one batch of orange juice just pretending. Landon Winery also hosts events and classes that allow visitors to pair wines with food, sample sips, and make their own custom wines.

Past flickering lanterns and an outdoor patio, heavy wooden rafters and a crackling fireplace give Churchill’s British Restaurant & Pub a downright Dickensian feel. From behind the wooden bar, bartenders sling an impressive collection of drinks, including 13 specialty cocktails, nine beers on tap, and 20 kinds of scotch. Complementing the suds and sips are classic British pub offerings such as bangers and mash and shepherd’s pie, alongside American eats, including meatloaf and chicken tenders that have declared their independence from the rest of the bird. Underneath hanging beer steins and a massive Union Jack, guests can lounge on leather sofas or pleasantly worn wooden chairs as soccer matches flicker on TV screens. When there’s not a match on, pub-goers can play darts or pool in the game room, listen to live rock and bagpipe music, or play trivia on Wednesday nights.

Though The Frisco Bar initially opened to provide the people of Frisco with a neighborhood hangout, the eatery is far from a typical bar. Sure, the menu is dotted with traditional bar food, such as burgers, pizza, and fish and chips, but these hearty meals also share page-space with more upscale feasts, including fish and tenderloin tacos, sweet-potato fries, and lumpia rolls packed with ground pork, carrots, and sprouts. To complement meals, bartenders pour glasses of cabernet, sauvignon blanc, and pinot grigio, and concoct nine unconventionally flavored martinis, from chocolate-covered raspberry to cinnamon apple pie. During their visit, patrons can sink into the eatery’s soft leather and velvet seating, play shuffleboard and darts, or test new pick-up lines on sports announcers broadcasted across the bar's collection 50-inch HD TVs.
