Ahoy My Texas Mates and Mate’its!
If you’re anything like me, when I see a seafood place or new restaurant open in the DFW area I always wonder how fresh and delicious the cuisine will be.
Anyone can create a brand and open a restaurant or a catering business. It takes someone with drive, dedication, and talent to make it successful. Especially when it involves seafood and the total concept is centered around nothing but seafood.
Seafood is not only tricky to source, but your supplier must have the same drive, dedication, and pursuit of quality that the restaurant owner has.
Seafood has to be handled with love and care or it can be a disaster for everyone.
Well, my friends, I have to tell you that Chef Brett, owner of The Doc Coastal seafood restaurant and catering truck has definitely got it figured out.
The menu is creative and loaded with fantastic menu items. Everything I’ve tried has been fresh, delicious, and colorful.
The presentations are so good they look like artwork more than they do food to eat.
I interviewed Chef Brett on my food show Trey’s Chow Down Live for an hour. We discussed everything about his life, career, and what drives him to serve some of the best seafood in the Fort Worth and Dallas area.
First and foremost, I learned Brett grew up on the coast and loved seafood. He moved to Texas after he had traveled and worked in various restaurants. He also attended culinary school so he could learn how to master his craft.
After Brett moved to Texas they started The Dock Seafood Truck and Catering Company. As they say, my friends, the rest is history.
The Doc offers some amazing seafood you will fall in love with. I’ve tried three of the sandwiches and the delicious mouth-watering “Crab Chips” with their house prepared sauce.
All the sandwiches are served on “ROLLS” which are split top, toasted, butter rolls and served up with The Doc house-prepared pickles.
My favorite sandwich is the “Lobster Grinder.” Yea man the grinder. Boy, that is sandwich to die for. Lobster meat, mayo, cilantro, chives, and wait for it… GARLIC BUTTER. It’s what I like to call STUPID DELICIOUS! I promise you will say “THANK YOU! MAY I HAVE ANOTHER?”
They have great sides too like “Lobster Mac-N-Cheese,” “Pier Street Corn” and “Lobster Bisque”!
My mouth is watering right now just thinking about how flavorful and delicious all the chow is from The Doc.
They are located on the Food Hall On Crockett Row and are opening a location in Dallas in less than a month. They also have the Catering and Food Truck if you have parties or office events.
Do yourself a big favor and take a trip to Chow Down at The Doc. You will never be the same, I can promise you will have Doc Dreams.
