Throw in a third “P” for prosecco and you’ve got the makings of a relaxed family evening that won’t break the bank — not to mention there’s rumor of buried treasure in the garden at the Lakewood location. Order a few pizzas, wrap things up with some of the best sugar-dusted doughnuts in Dallas and wait for the kids to sugar crash. Your Friday night is complete. 7328 Gaston Ave., No. 100, 214-660-3644; 2612 Commerce St., No. 101, 214-741-1188; Readers’ Pick: India Palace Restaurant and Bar 12817 Preston Road, No. 105, 972-392-0190, Best Fried Chicken Bbbop Fried chicken doesn’t have to be served at a picnic in the park with a side of potato salad and sweet tea. Sometimes fried chicken with a little more character is in order. Sometimes you want crispy fried chicken drizzled with a sweet, spicy glaze and served with pickled daikon and kimchi. And screw iced tea. Quench your thirst with a massive plastic bottle of Hite beer. If you want fried chicken that talks back while you eat it, head over to Bbbop and order some yard bird fried in a rice-flour batter. It’s got a serious crunch. 2023 Greenville Ave., 469-941-4297, 2014 Readers’ Pick: Magic Time Machine 5003 Belt Line Road, 972-980-1903, Best Pizza Restaurant Olivella’s Order a Neapolitan pizza of your choice and make sure to request that it stays in the oven till it’s extra crispy. You’ll be well on your way to enjoying the best pizza served in Dallas. Readers’ Pick: Babe’s Chicken Dinner House Various locations, DALLAS DALLAS OBSERVER OBSERVER Best Italian Restaurant Lucia A reservation at Lucia has been a difficult score for more than four years now. One rea-son? While chef David Uygur presides over Dallas’ very best Italian cooking, there’s more to Lucia’s allure than what is on the plates as they cross the pass. The walls of this Oak Cliff restaurant enclose a tiny dining room that ex-udes as much charm as that perfectly cooked pork chop exudes glistening juice. Lucia em-bodies romance, even if you’re dining alone. Just sit at the bar and engage the cooks work-ing across from you. The night will pass more quickly than you’d like. 408 W. 8th St., No. 101, 214-948-4998, eptember 24-30, 2015 M S onth XX–M onth XX, 2014 Best Italian Restaurant LuCIa Readers’ Pick: Campisi’s 4 66 Various locations, Lori Bandi
