The Disco Dumplings can now stand on the plates proudly for more than guaranteeing complete satisfaction, they now own the disco ball they were named in honor of.
In 2001, while I was creating my menu, before child and club hopping was the scene, I named my Disco Dumplings after a dear friend, Lee Ellis, aka Disco. Lee, the owner of the hot spot Tonic in downtown Houston, the only guy with balls big and brave enough to hang a grand disco ball right in front of his business. When Tonic moved on, the disco ball retired.
I am thrilled to have this iconic disco ball come out of retirement and boldly suspend from our ceiling at Post Oak. If and until we bring back Feather Boa Fridays, the disco ball will grace us all from calmly above or twinkle during private events. Stay tuned in to see if Feather Boa Fridays returns.
