Celebrity Café & Bakery’s New Gourmet Catering Menu + Easter Treats

Celebrity Café & Bakery is an institution in Dallas restaurant history. I didn’t grow up in Dallas, but friends of mine who did recant fond memories of their youth, eating beautifully iced sugar cookies and sipping fresh flavored iced tea at Celebrity Bakery in Highland Park. Since I moved here in 2009, I wasn’t familiar with the 30 year legacy and the prominent place Celebrity has in Dallas restaurant history until recently, when I met Brian and Brittany Livingston, who purchased Celebrity Café & Bakery and have vowed to restore the brand to its former Dallas glory.

Fede Trattoria Brings White Tablecloth Italian to Frisco

Sorry for the dim photos…
But. I have exciting news for you Frisco.

Fede Trattoria went above and beyond last night in taking care of and feeding us. Since I hadn’t been able to find a menu yet online, I really didn’t have a clue what I was walking into. I was pretty surprised to find a valet parking stand out front, something we don’t see a whole lot of a Frisco restaurants just yet.

I have to admit upon walking in I felt underdressed in my denim shirt and gray pants, but after looking around I saw other people dressed casually as well.

The restaurant is truly a transformed departure from former tenant Blue’s pub.

White tablecloths, fiery red walls, a maitre’d with a delightful accent who pulls out your chair and places your napkin on your lap, and superb service from start to finish.


The calamari appetizer was made with thick and juicy calamari steaks and served with an aioli for dipping.


Complimentary house salad was tossed in a flavorful vinaigrette.


The lobster ravioli tasted fresh and light.


The special of the evening that drew me in for an immediate visit was their fritta del mar. Tons of mussels, clams, and shrimp served in a creamy saffron and lobster risotto.


Fede Trattoria is a much needed fine dining option with fair pricing.
