If you’ve lived in Dallas for any amount of time, you’ve certainly heard of “The Grape Restaurant”. Around for over 45 years in the Lower Greenville area, it was an institution by any standard of the word. This East Dallas gem opened in 1972 and was the quintessential neighborhood bistro—adored by many thanks to husband-and-wife owners Courtney and Brian Luscher, who served as sommelier and executive chef, respectively. In October 2019, the restaurant closed its doors as the owners decided to pursue new ventures. One of my favorite dishes there was the Coal Miner’s Pasta. It is a spaghetti dish with parmesan-cream sauce, bacon, tomato, and spinach, topped with a sunny-side up egg. It’s basically a carbonara dish on steroids!
Coal Miner’s Pasta is a simple dish that you can make at home – especially great for a busy weeknight meal. From start to finish, you can have this meal on the table in about 30 minutes. I always like to add mushrooms to any dish and this is a great one to add them to.
