I have recently discovered that The Grill on the Alley — the steakhouse located at the Galleria Dallas — is an amazing place to go after work and enjoy a little happy hour (Bonus for me? It’s not even 10 minutes from my office!). Tucked over by the Westin, its dark clubby vibe (think images of 1940s actors and actresses on the walls, accenting dark mahogany woodwork) makes it perfect for the after-work crowd. I was invited to try the restaurant’s spring menu, which is fabulous.
I had a chance to pose a few questions to Jimmy Niwa, owner of Niwa Japanese BBQ, a first-of-its-kind restaurant that recently opened in Dallas’ Deep Ellum neighborhood. As a South Korea resident and super-fan of Korean BBQ, I just had to find out what’s different about what I eat here and the similarly hands-on, meat-centric Japanese cuisine called yakiniku.
[Disclosure: Tyson Tastemakers brand provided The Dallas Diva with vouchers for complimentary Tyson Tastemakers Meal Kits. The opinions here are the writer’s own.] It’s time again to launch into our next food adventure with Tyson Tastemakers meal kits! Our first meal was Tuscan-Style Pork Loin & Pork Belly Pasta, which we thoroughly enjoyed. This go-round, we tried the Citrus Rum Glazed Chicken with charred sweet peppers and pineapple salsa.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
